What to See When You RV - South Carolina Edition

Posted on December 3, 2018

 

Put your RV on the road and discover South Carolina. Get excited! The state has over 3,000 campsites and 180 miles of Atlantic coastline.

Relax on the beach or the golf course on beautiful Hilton Head Island. Delight the kids at the Sandbox Interactive Children’s Museum or the Coastal Discovery Museum, where a lot of island history is on display, or walk the grounds under moss-draped oak trees and through salt marshes. Hundreds of bike trails that run throughout the island will take you to practically any destination. Carry your bikes along in your Class A toy hauler, and you may be surprised at how often you will use them. The city offers plenty of nightlife and some of the best shrimp and grits in the South.

The 26,000 acre Congaree National Park in central South Carolina is a protected habitat that boasts kayaking and canoeing, both self-guided and ranger tours, as well as fishing and hiking. Front and backcountry camping sites are available, but only tent camping is allowed. If you want an outdoor experience under the stars, park your motorhome nearby and enjoy a night of tent camping in the backcountry with river or lake views and magnificent trees.

Myrtle Beach is “touristy,” but well worth a visit. See magnificent plantations and a Moorish castle. Walk down the boardwalk or enjoy the Family Kingdom Amusement Park. If you are seeking a thrill, the 200-foot-tall Myrtle Beach Skywheel launches you above the Boardwalk. Relax on quiet beaches or have a gastronomic delight at the diverse array of restaurants.

History is evident in the charming town of Charleston. Visit Fort Sumpter where the first shot of the Civil War occurred. Just outside of the city, gaze at the 65-foot-tall Angel Oak tree with a canopy that covers 17,000 square feet! Visit the 50-acre campus of the first school for African Americans on nearby St. Helena Island. The Gaillard Center for the Performing Arts is a show unto itself, so take a break from the beach or the hike and bike trails, and treat yourself to a night out. Enjoy low-country cuisine, beaches, historic homes, and Southern hospitality in this one-of-a-kind city.

One hour away is Edisto Beach State Park, where you can enjoy oceanfront camping on a palmetto-lined beach. Visit nearby Barefoot Farms and pick melons, strawberries and vegetables. Play a round of golf at Ocean Creek Golf Course with views of lush vegetation, lagoons, and saltwater marshes.

Have unique experiences, such as a fox hunt in Hitchcock Woods in Aiken, where its pine forest has 70 miles of marked trails for hiking, jogging, horseback riding, and carriages. At Chattooga Belle Farm, pick figs, muscadines, pears, and apples. Have lunch or take an educational tour.

Whether you drive a compact RUV (recreational utility vehicle), the larger Class A motorhome or Class C motorhome, stop for a romantic interlude at the Red Horse Inn in Landrum at the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. After days or weeks on the road, pamper yourself in the natural beauty of this idealistic escape featuring luxurious rooms and cottages with fireplaces and astounding views. The comfort of either a gas RV or a diesel RV is incomparable, so consider this rendezvous a fascinating by-product of your motorhome adventure.
