South Carolina Holidays

The Palmetto State offers an exciting, contrasting landscape comprised of Atlantic Ocean beaches, coastal plains, the Santee River Delta, and the Barrier Islands. Boasting a year round subtropical climate, mild winters and over 200 days of sunshine each year, the state provides an ideal climate for many holiday activities. From a relaxing beach break, to playing golf, shopping in one of the state’s charming towns or visiting Charleston’s historic sites, you’re sure to find a style of holidaying that suits your taste. The combination of southern hospitality, the barbeque culinary tradition and an extensive year-round festival calendar, makes for a relaxing, healthy break in the great outdoors.
 
Charleston, founded in 1670, is a contemporary city with old world charm. Narrow streets are lined with grand colonial houses and stunning gardens, and the magnificent mansions of "The Battery" look out onto Fort Sumter, site of the first shots of the Civil War. Meanwhile, Columbia, the state capital, offers a cultural experience with museums, art galleries and the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden. Hilton Head Island is a quiet resort island to the south of Charleston, perfect for those looking to escape it all and relax.
