Tell our visitors more about the sights and delights and how to make the most of their
time in South Carolina.
South Carolina at a Glance
Its Charlestons winding streets, historic homes and history that draws the
majority of visitors. Among the most popular attractions are St. Michaels Episcopal
Church, which was built in 1752 and is known for its chimes, The Miles Brewton House, the
Charleston Museum, one of the oldest in the country, and Fort Sumter National Monument.
Considered to be one of the most charming cities of the South,
Charleston draws thousands of visitors each year in search of antebellum and Civil War
history, a charming and surprisingly cosmopolitan downtown and several nearby beaches.
Charleston offers excitement throughout the year. From mid-March
through mid-April, the Festival of Homes and Gardens gives visitors access to many
historic homes and private gardens that are not open to the public during the rest of the
year. Come in late May and early June to experience Spoleto, the USAs premier arts
and culture festival. Or, visit during the cool Autumn and mild Winter to see the historic
sites and take long walks.
South Carolina is the nations most rapidly growing golfing destination. Columbia is
the midland's best golfing location with over 20 courses in the area.
Columbia is a definite Southern belle -- the city doesnt reveal
much from a distance, where she seems like a mundane destination full of government
buildings and suburbs. You have to come closer to discern her charms, ride her trolley,
explore the exciting Five Points area and visit the State Farmers market.
While Columbia is a rising star in the southeast convention business,
there are sufficient hotel rooms for the business traveller or tourist to stop by anytime.
Head, South Carolina:
Its a good idea to have access to a car or a bike when visiting Hilton Head. The
island is a mere 12 miles long and five miles across, making it convenient for all
travellers, however, some mode of transportation other than hoofing it is suggested.
Hilton Head is considered the 10th best golf
destination in the world by Golf Digest, one of the top five best family destinations and
beach destinations in the U.S. by Southern Living and ranked the third best beach in the
U.S. by The Travel Channel.
Summer can occasionally be hot and humid, but temperatures are cooled
by gentle breezes in this coastal area.
Beach, South Carolina:
Myrtle Beach is doing the impossible: expanding without losing any of her special
Branson with a beach? Golfing Mecca? Shopping central for the South
Eastern Seaboard? Romantic retreat? Nightlife Nirvana? Sportsman's paradise? The perfect
spot for a family vacation? Myrtle Beach is all that and an order of fries.
Myrtle Beach is best for sunlovers from late May through the end of
September. Golfers and fans of the growing night-light will find it perfect year-round.
