Stay in a Spacious Vacation Rental on the South Carolina Coast

South Carolina has some of the finest coastal resorts on the Eastern Seaboard, from Myrtle Beach in the north, to Hilton Head in the south. Wherever you are thinking of visiting on the state's coast, you're sure to find no shortage of beach house rentals. The major resorts are full of period homes with roomy terraces overlooking the sea, and space for as many as 12 people to sleep – the ideal spot for a family vacation.

Explore South Carolina's Historic Cities from an Inland Property

You don't need to limit your search to the resorts in the Palmetto State. Cities like Charleston or Columbia are also great places to stay. They are also home to plenty of modern apartments in luxurious condos, with great access to urban attractions. Or, you could look at a secluded cabin in more rural areas like Lake Murray. It's all there to choose from in South Carolina.

Holiday in South Carolina


Mix History, Recreation, and Relaxation in South Carolina

With its beach-friendly climate, huge array of places to visit, and excellent accommodation, South Carolina is surely one of America's most appealing destinations. It's the kind of place where you can tour battlefields and other historic sights, play golf at world class courses, or spend a week in the sunshine perfecting your tan.

Getting to Know South Carolina's Geography

South Carolina isn't a large state at around 48,000 square kilometers, but it's still important to know where to base yourself. For some people, the star of the state is its Atlantic coast, also known as the Carolina Sandhills. But the inland Piedmont has its charms, as do the Blue Ridge Mountains in the northwestern part of the state.

How to Get to South Carolina

If you are heading to the coast, it's best to fly into Charleston International Airport, although Myrtle Beach is also served by a number of major airlines. When heading to the mountains, Greenville-Spartanburg is more suitable, and also has plenty of connections.

Activities in South Carolina

A Superb Destination for Golfers

South Carolina has some of the finest courses in the USA, including iconic venues like Harbor Town Links and Kiawah Island, but there are less well-known gems all over the state.

Simply Amazing for Foodies

South Carolina tastes as good as it looks. Whether you dine on BBQ pulled pork with slaw or biscuits and hush puppies, you're in for a feast of good old southern cooking.

Just What Beach Fans are Looking For

The Atlantic coast is studded with incredible resorts. From fun-loving Myrtle Beach to upscale Hilton Head, everyone can find somewhere that suits their tastes and needs.

During the Civil War era, South Carolina was the very first state to secede from the Union in 1860, and wasn't readmitted until 1886.

Top 5 Things to Do in South Carolina

1. Tour Historic Charleston

Charleston is a 19th century jewel. It was here that the Civil War began with the firing on Fort Sumter, and downtown is full of sights like the opulent Nathaniel Russell House and the colorful homes of Rainbow Row.

2. Spend the Day at Carowinds Park

The state's leading amusement park, Carowinds features the Giga 325 – one of the world's fastest rollercoasters, as well as Camp Snoopy, which is great fun for kids.

3. Visit Boone Hall Plantation

SC is full of beautiful antebellum plantations, and none are more elegant than Boone Hall, which was founded in 1734, and where the “slave street” adds a powerful, fascinating history lesson.

4. Hike or Paddle in Congaree National Park

Located in central South Carolina, Congaree is famous for its boardwalks across swamps and rivers. Walking the trails is fun, but canoeing the swamps is also a magical experience.

5. Watch the Gamecocks in Columbia

College sports are huge in SC, and visitors can catch the USC's Gamecocks in action at Columbia's Williams-Brice Stadium – along with 80,000 other passionate fans.

Useful Information

Pick the Perfect Season for Your SC Vacation

Generally speaking, places like Myrtle Beach are at their best in July and August, although May and June can be slightly less busy and still have great weather. If you're driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, fall is an amazing time to go, while sports fans may want to visit during the football season, from August to February.

A State Full of Events and Special Attractions

Highlights of the South Carolina calendar range from sporting spectacles like NASCAR's Southern 500, held in Darlington, SC every may, to nationally important art events like the Artisphere, held in Greenville (also in May). Quirkier events include the Festival of Flowers, which you'll find in historic Beaufort in June.
