No trip would be complete without staying in one of the many hotels in South Carolina in Myrtle Beach, where you can soak up the sun on 60 miles of beaches while taking in live entertainment and family activities along the coast. Nature lovers would be remiss to not take time to enjoy the scenery in the Upcountry, a distinct area tucked in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, home to jaw-dropping vistas and cozy South Carolina resorts. Or head to the Lowcountry for some of the best seafood around in places like Charleston and Hilton Head Island. Check out the seafood festivals held throughout the year in the region. With at least one held every month from January through November, there are sure to be plenty of delicious excursions.
