Why South Carolina?
We would like to welcome your family to spend your vacation time with us on one of our amazing South Carolina beaches. The coast of South Carolina has much to offer the family who is seeking a relaxing, fun-filled vacation. There are so many popular beaches that are perfect for the family holiday including Myrtle Beach, Garden City and Folly Beach. The islands of Pawley's and Hilton Head are also wonderful family destinations. Choosing which beach to visit can be the most difficult part of planning your vacation to South Carolina. Each beach community offers something different, but what they all offer is clean beaches, family-friendly activities and southern hospitality.
Amazing Coastal Island Communities
The islands of South Carolina offer a unique experience and they have many families returning the same islands year after year. Hilton Head Island offers many restaurants, with everything from barbecue, to fine dining, and many places feature the low-country style of cooking the area is known for. Shrimp and grits is a favorite local dish, along with fried green tomatoes. The island also has lots of dog friendly places if you're traveling with your pet. One of the most popular ways to get around on the island is biking. If you don't have your own bike, there are many places that rent them daily or by the week. While you're on the island, you truly feel like you've stepped into a different world with Spanish moss, ancient oaks and even a few alligators along the way.
Activities for the Kids
The South Carolina coast has many outdoor activities that they kids will love. There are pleasure cruises that take you out to see dolphins. There are also many fishing charter companies with experienced fishermen that can help those who have never fished before learn to love the art of angling. If you're in Myrtle Beach, you should check out a banana boat ride or try parasailing. When visiting any of the coastal areas we hope you take the time to enjoy our beautiful beaches. The waves are calm enough for the young ones to enjoy but some areas also have waves large enough for surfing. There are surfing instructors in many of the beach side communities to help those who wish to learn.
World-Class Shopping That Can Save You Money
Outlet shopping is huge in South Carolina. There are large outlet shopping areas located near both Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head Island. These shops carry some of the best known brands at great prices. You can easily spend an entire day shopping. Local beach shops are a favorite of the kids because they can pick up souvenir sea shells or t-shirts to remember the vacation.
The Golf Capital Of The World
South Carolina is home to many award-winning golf courses. If you're an experienced golfer looking for a challenge, we invite you to come enjoy one of the many professional level courses that are scattered up and down the coast. Those who are just beginning with golf can try one of the easier courses, many of which have professional instructors to help you learn the game. If you're traveling with children, what's more fun than a family game of putt-putt. These themed courses can be found in most of the beach side towns and they make a great way to spend the afternoon after a day of playing in the surf.
We're Made For Relaxing Beach Days
If you're looking for a simple vacation for relaxing, laying on the beach and spending some down time with the family away from the stresses of life, Pawley's Island or Kiawah Island may be just the place for you. They both have wide beaches with many different vacation rentals for families of all sizes. They don't have the fast-paced feel of some of the large beach towns, but they offer plenty to occupy the family.
From Seafood To Comfort Cooking
You can't take a trip to the beaches of South Carolina without experiencing the local food. As southerners, we cook with love and lots of butter. Dishes usually feature simple ingredients that can be found locally, like the Wahoo fish, which is caught right off the Carolina coast. Seafood is a big deal here and while much of it is fried, there are also many places that offer lighter dishes with a Southern flair.
Whichever beach you decide to visit, we look forward to welcoming you to South Carolina where our goal is to make everyone feel like family. You'll likely be planning your next visit before you even get home.
