South Carolina's crown jewel is the port city of Charleston. It's one of the South's best preserved cities with beautifully restored homes and churches, cobblestone streets, hidden gardens, and a thriving culinary scene. The South Carolina coast also includes family-friendly Myrtle Beach and the gracious Grand Strand. Hilton Head Island's exclusive resorts, excellent golfing, and genteel good life make it one of the coast's most popular getaways. Inland, South Carolina has small-town charm with antique shops and shady town squares.
