South Carolina is a southeastern US state that offers a fine blend between culture, history, and natural attractions. The major port city of Charleston is where you can trace the state’s colourful past, where horse-drawn carriages still run through cobblestoned streets, past pretty pastel-coloured houses. Take in some of SC’s subtropical coast further north along the Grand Strand, with Myrtle Beach as a great base.

    More pristine Atlantic beaches and rich wildlife await on Hilton Head Island. If you’re looking for a green escape away from the city crowds, centre yourself in Greenville for exploring scenic forests, hiking trails, and the beautiful Falls Park on the Reedy riverfront gardens.
