South Carolina is the state of options; Myrtle Beach for families, Charleston for classic southern history, Hilton Head for golfing, and everything else in between. South Carolina has a more historical feel in general because there were so many major historical events that took place there such as English settlers colonizing in South Carolina and the Civil War starting at Fort Sumter, South Carolina.
From long stretching beaches to cobble stone roads, South Carolina is the picturesque coastal colonial southern state. This state has some of the most spectacular marsh-like islands off of its coast such as Kiawah Island, which I had the pleasure of visiting. Great golfing, fresh seafood, and Spanish hanging moss that draped over the trees is the best depiction of Kiawah Island.
