SOUTH CAROLINA'S COASTLINE
From the bustling Myrtle Beach area in the north and down through historic Charleston to Hilton Head Island in the south, the meandering coastline of South Carolina beckons with a wide variety of alluring options for visitors. Historic US 17 connects the coastal dots of the pretty state, making it easy to explore many of the state's waterlogged treasures--as well as many inland options on the way to or from the coast.
From the North Carolina state line down to historic riverfront Georgetown, the popular Myrtle Beach area features an array of pursuits for those looking to go with the flow--or get a bit off the beaten track.
Famed Ocean Boulevard in North Myrtle Beach is the "Birthplace of the Shag." Dancers and those who just like to listen to beach music and watch the action head to Fat Harold's Beach Club, Duck's ("The Place Where the Dancers Meet"), and Ocean Drive Beach & Golf Resort--including the OD Beach Club and the Shagger's Hall of Fame.
