How to enjoy South Carolina

With southern charm in spades and more (well-preserved) history than you shake a stick at, South Carolina’s allure is impossible to resist. Do prepare to downshift a bit; things here move at a pace that allows you to thoroughly enjoy every moment

  • Charleston’s King Street is an antique hunter’s paradise, full of chic shops stocking the good stuff: pieces that would be at home in museums
  • Hilton Head has so many resorts, in part, because of its wealth of stunning beaches. More than 10 miles of tree-lined white sand awaits
  • Beaufort’s magical aura makes it a popular Silver Screen backdrop—especially its opulent, centuries-old antebellum houses

Good luck deciding on a South Carolina home base. For pure charisma, Charleston’s picturesque landscape is unbeatable—especially the scenic Battery, lined with lush parks and glorious mansions. And legendary Hilton Head island is synonymous with a lavish good time.

You’ll find that food is your constant companion on your South Carolina voyage. We could fill 1,000 pages with simpering testimonials about the restaurants, but it’s safe to say that some of the best dining in the country can be found here, particularly in Charleston. Some of our favorites include the Charleston Grill (French), Anson (Southern) and Red Drum (haute pub).

    When to visit South Carolina

    Ooh boy, does the temperature soar in the summer! There’s only so much a glass of sweet iced tea can do to offset the hot, sticky mess, so if you’re not a heat lover, opt for any other season—the rest are lovely and mild.

Hotels we adore in South Carolina

Here are the hotels that we love in South Carolina. We've shared our insight about what makes each one special to help you select the perfect place to stay

  • The local view

    The coast is among South Carolina’s highlights, but pick your beach spots carefully. Myrtle Beach has an Atlantic City feel more suited for families, Edisto Beach is relatively private and Fripp Island offers a posh environment.

  • Did you know

    The Charleston area contains some of the best maintained antebellum plantations in the country, including Boone Hall, Magnolia and Drayton Hall.

  • Gourmet Guide

    Italian in Charleston? Yep. Upscale Sienna restaurant, about a 10-minute drive onto Daniel Island, does phenomenal Italian but also serves up yummy twists on authentic Low Country food.

  • The local view

    Kiawah Beachwalker Park is just that—an immaculate beach for strolling—but locals also frequent the adjacent lagoons for birdwatching outings.
