Pawley’s Island

What can I say about this little stop on the Hammock Coast. This is a beautiful beach town that you have to give a try at least once. You will probably never want to go anywhere else. Pawleys is pretty “laid back”. The beaches are less crowded and it is very family friendly. There is a lot of information in a pervious post I wrote, make sure to check out the Litchfield Inn. My family and I stayed here and we loved it. The drive there was great too! There is so much to see and do and you will not get to it all, however it gives you a reason to come back.

Caesars Head Mountain, Greenville

Located within Caesars Head State Park in Greenville, South Carolina, this favorite hiking destination is for the outdoor lovers. With miles of hiking trails and hundreds of waterfalls, it is a no brainer when it comes to camping and hiking. The park does offer trailside camping and campsites, but no water or electricity is provided on those so just come prepared. If hiking is your thing but camping is not, Greenville itself is not something to miss. The town offers a lot of restaurants and other amenities.
