Beachin' it Along the SC Coast

Camping in the Carolinas


The South Carolina Coast is home to beautiful beaches, historical cities, fresh-off-the-boat seafood, and award-winning golf courses. No matter the season or the occasion, there is something for everyone. 

Whether you are interested in a romantic getaway for two, a family beach vacation, spring break with your friends, or a family reunion… the South Carolina Coast has much to offer. 

Location | The Palmetto State is bordered to the north by North Carolina, to the southeast by the Atlantic Ocean, and to the southwest by Georgia across the Savannah River. The three main cities along the South Carolina Coast are Myrtle Beach, Charleston, and Hilton Head Island. Myrtle Beach and Charleston are roughly 1-hour off of I-95, while Hilton Head Island is an estimated 30-minutes off of I-95. 

Weather | The coastal region of South Carolina has a subtropical climate with hot summers and mild winters. The summertime temperatures average around 90 degrees, while winter temperatures average around 50 degrees. 

Tourism – What to Expect | During the spring and summer months, there is a large increase in tourism. The weather is perfect for long days on the beach soaking up the sun. December through February tend to draw far less crowds to the coast. Throughout those three months, many tourist attractions and shops will close or cut back on their hours. 

Dive On In | Let’s take a deep dive into the 3 main cities along the South Carolina Coast and see what they have to offer!

Myrtle Beach – Welcome to the Grand Strand | The Grand Strand is a 60-mile stretch of beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. It ranges from Little River all the way down to Georgetown and encompasses all the towns in between, which include Murrells Inlet, Surfside Beach, Garden City, North Myrtle Beach, and Myrtle Beach. 

Myrtle Beach is a golfer’s paradise offering 90 courses and is often referred to as the “Golf Capital of the World.”
