The Atlantic has always had an influence on South Carolina, where the Pee Dee Indians lived when the Spaniards first arrived in 1521. Even today, the ocean brings tourists from all over the world here.
South Carolina’s most familiar beaches are worth a visit, and Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head stop and join fellow travelers. If you’re looking for adventure and relaxation, you’ll need to travel further along the coast to Edisto Beach.
Sun-worshippers who like to relax on the white sand, whether camping or staying in a cabin, can watch the sunrise and sunset at Edisto Beach State Park. The area has large palm trees, salt marshes and miles of white sandy beaches. Endangered loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs in the area, along with seabirds and other wildlife. You can fish in fresh or salt water and enjoy wildflowers and tide pools at low tide. You can hike along the ocean or enjoy hiking on neat trails that are accessible to the disabled.
As you prepare to head inland and visit some of South Carolina’s forests and rivers to look back in history, visit some old plantations and discover where you want to head to the beginning of the European and African settlements on the Ashley River Road.
Offering some of the best ancient gardens in the area’s wildlife landscape, this 11-mile road will remind you why you came here in the first place.
Travel further inland to the Greenville area, where you can enjoy the sights and sounds off the beaten track and enjoy true Southern hospitality. One of the locals’ favorite tunnels is the Stumphouse Tunnel, I guess you’d say it’s the southern version of the California Redwood Tunnel. It’s not just a curiosity, a stop here for a hike to the beautiful Isaquina Falls will leave you with unforgettable memories.
You will want to use the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway to travel through South Carolina. The highway will take you past meandering rivers, streams, covered bridges and artisan centers, where you can admire the work of over a hundred local artists. You will need days or even weeks or months to explore the whole area.
If you stray off the beaten track, you’ll find adventure, contentment, and memories to last a lifetime. Once you’re in South Carolina, you’ll experience some of the best food, ocean views, and breathtaking views anywhere.
