I visited South Carolina in the fall of 2018 and there’s a lot more to this Eastern seaboard state than just Myrtle Beach. There are six RV Park reviews here and the following is a virtual tour so you can plan your in-real-life trip for the future.
The Myrtle Beach area is a popular destination for New England snowbirds, with some RV Resorts serving generations of families year after year. The 60-mile stretch of coast known as the “Grand Strand” is the destination for golf aficionados. When I decided I had to see Myrtle Beach once in my life, I chose an older RV Resort that has that old-time feel from days gone past when New Yorkers would motor down for the summer and park their striped umbrellas on the beach. Apache Family Campground and Pier sports the East coast’s longest wooden pier, which can be toured for a small fee even if you’re not camping there. There’s also a pretty good restaurant on the pier.
If you’re in to the state park experience, Huntington Beach State Park, just a few short miles south of Myrtle Beach, has a lot to offer. There are two campground areas, miles of beach and picnic facilities, a store, an historical “castle,” and a bayou boardwalk, to name a few. This is great place for bird watching…or alligator watching!
Described as for grades 3-12 but in my opinion, great for anyone, the website KnowItAll has at least 10 virtual tours of South Carolina, including historical sites and museums. And if you have an interest in higher education, there’s a virtual tour and interactive map of the University of South Carolina.
The Lexington County Library features a virtual tour page with links to over 12 places to visit online. Links include state parks, museums, zoos, and the South Carolina State House.
World of Wonder Travel offers a virtual field trip of Charleston, South Carolina, the historical port city founded in 1670. You can explore with links and video Rainbow Row of 13 colorful colonial houses, city market, and Charleston pirate tours. There are also some links here that would be especially fun for children with activities and coloring pages. Subjects are as diverse as pirates and pineapples!
You can start planning your trip to South Carolina with it’s subtropical shoreline and it’s colonial and civil war historic sites at the South Carolina Travel Guide, a Google online trip planning site. Articles include “Top 10 Things To Do in South Carolina” and “24 Hours in Charleston.”
