Spring break is just a week away, so use that time to visit some of these places in South Carolina.

If sand, sun and water are your favorite things, consider taking a road trip to one of the many beaches in South Carolina. Most of those beaches also have other attractions, such as Wonderworks in Myrtle Beach.

Hilton Head Island is also a big tourist spot in South Carolina. While there, one can enjoy the fun of the beach or go on a trip to the Lowcountry, where, “rich tidal marshes, moss-draped maritime forests and pristine rivers serve as the venue for all kinds of outdoor activities,” according to the Discover South Carolina website.

There is also the Coastal Discovery Museum in Hilton Head where you can learn more about the Lowcountry and its ecosystem and wildlife.

If beaches aren’t your cup of tea, there are several cities in South Carolina that are rich in history and things to do. For example, in Charleston, you can take a carriage ride tour of the city.

“During your one-hour tour of Charleston, you will see not only the highlights of Charleston’s past, but you will also delve further into the city and learn about areas not normally seen by typical tourists,” according to the Palmetto Carriage Works website.

You can also visit the South Carolina aquarium while in Charleston. View more than 5,000 animals, experience a 4D movie, and take a tour of the sea turtle hospital.

Or maybe just take a day trip to one of the many historical cities in South Carolina, such as Beaufort, which is the second oldest city in this state. Visit the 30-acre tract that once comprised the original city of Beaufort and is registered as a National Historic Landmark. Or visit Greenville, South Carolina.

“Greenville’s residents and visitors can enjoy a host of outdoor offerings, including 39 city parks, an expansive trail system and a year-round series of award-winning special events ranging from weekly outdoor concerts and events, to food and art festivals and national sporting competitions,” stated Greenville’s official website.

Don’t forget that there are fun and sometimes free attractions that happen in our state. Some may even happen in your home city.
