South Carolina at a Glance

Charleston, South Carolina - Compare Hotels

Charleston, South Carolina

It’s Charleston’s winding streets, historic homes and history that draws the majority of visitors. Among the most popular attractions are St. Michael’s 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 USA’s premier arts and culture festival. Or, visit during the cool Autumn and mild Winter to see the historic sites and take long walks.

Columbia, South Carolina - Compare hotels

Columbia, South Carolina

South Carolina is the nation’s 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 doesn’t 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 Farmer’s 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.

Hilton Head, South Carolina - Compare Hotels

Hilton Head, South Carolina

It’s 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.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina - Compare Hotels

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Myrtle Beach is doing the impossible: expanding without losing any of her special our-place-at-the-shore charm.

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.

South Carolina Travel Notes

Hilton Head, South Carolina

A Fine Time for Golf in Hilton Head: by Shelley Poulton.

Hilton Head, a small island off the coast of South Carolina, continues to attract golf enthusiasts worldwide with its 35 championship courses. But even if you think birdies are found only in the sky and bogey was just a great Hollywood actor, there's something for you in Hilton Head.

Lesser Known Hilton Head Island Attractions: by Jeff Palmer.

Hilton Head Island is well known as an upscale resort and golf desination. What is often overlooked is the many wonderful activities available for family vacationers.

Visiting Hilton Head Island: by Jeff Palmer.

Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston's Historic District: by Leon Schwarzbaum.

Charleston for many visitors means exploring the historic district. Buildings constructed in the earliest days, and those built in the 18th century, have been preserved and restored, most having been in continuous use since they were first occupied.

Greenville, South Carolina

Spend a Summer in Moose Country: by Shelley Poulton.

During the month of May, residents of Greenville celebrate 'Moose Mainea', an annual festival that includes bike and canoe races, a family fun day and rowing competition, and - of course - the elusive moose.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Glorious Grand Strand Gardens: by Diane Goldberg.

Between beach sunsets and glorious gardens, you'll find a perfect spot for romance or relaxation along South Carolina's Grand Strand.

The Grand Strand: by Leon Schwarzbaum.

Stretching south for 60 miles along the east coast of South Carolina, from the Little River near the North Carolina border to the banks of the Santee River, The Grand Strand is home to a mind-boggling number of resorts, hotels, motels and restaurants.

Walhalla, South Carolina

The Appalachian's Hidden Secret: by William B. Kaliher.

The southern Appalachians, with more than 1,300 flowering plants and hundreds of various trees, have what many consider unparalleled beauty during every season.

Often overlooked by the general tourist and all but the most knowledgeable backpackers is the Golden Corner of South Carolina, Oconee County.
