Whether you want to relax with island breezes and an umbrella drink on Hilton Head Island, or hit the sixty miles of sand along the Grand Strand , South Carolina's got a beach for every preference. Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand is the most popular coast on the Eastern seaboard, and for good reason. The area is packed with every water sport and beach activity imaginable.

Eat Your Heart Out

South Carolina has some of the best restaurants in the country outside of New York City and Los Angeles. Most of the restaurant scene is centered in Charleston, where award-winning chefs dazzle diners and critics alike with their latest culinary creations.

One noteworthy Charleston restaurant is Anson , a high-class Lowcountry cuisine restaurant with the romance of the Old South and a menu that echos modern food trends. Charlie's L'Etoile Verte on Hilton Head Island is another acclaimed restaurant that combines innovative and delicious food with a whimsical atmosphere.

Whether you're looking for seafood, lowcountry, barbeque, or southern comfort, you're bound to find it in South Carolina. Don't plan a trip to this state without putting restaurant-hopping on your list of things to do in South Carolina.

South Carolina is home to some of the best golf courses in the country. Every year, golfers make an annual pilgrimage down to Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, or any other award-winning course located in the state. For your best bets, you can't go wrong with the Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island or the Old South Golf Links in Bluffton . Both courses have received accolades from Golf Digest, with Palmetto Dunes being named one of the "75 Best American Resort Courses" and Old South being named one of the "Top 10 Public Courses" in the country.

Relive History

Luckily for travelers, South Carolina has made a strong commitment to preserving the state's long history. Walk the historic districts of Charleston and witness some of the prettiest still-standing homes in the country. Georgetown is another popular destination, offering travelers a chance to step back in time to an era before the Revolutionary War. Take a day trip to Beaufort, a sleepy little town that formed the backdrop to many Southern movies, including The Big Chill . Beaufort still maintains the small-town feel it had when the town was established in 1710.

This is just a small sampling of all the things to do in South Carolina. To truly experience all this state has within its borders, you've got to plan a visit. From the charm of Charleston to the palm trees of Hilton Head, you're sure to find a vacation that will please the whole family.
