Southern charm and the renowned 187 miles of South Carolina beaches and summer resorts - like Myrtle Beach and world famous Hilton Head - put South Carolina at the top of many American's wish-lists for a summer vacation.

The barrier island complex, south of Bulls Bay to the Georgia border, includes islands located along the majority of South Carolina's central and southern shoreline.

While these islands protect coast from rising flood waters during storms, they also provide surfers and other waters sports fans with waves-at- their-wildest during the rest of the year at famous locations such as Folly Beach, 15 minutes from downtown Charleston.

Then there are family-friendly oases like Myrtle Beach that offer amusement parks and season-long festivals. Further south of course, nothing beats world-famous Hilton Head for a romantic summer getaway. For pristine beaches maintained by the South Carolina state park system there's also Edisto Beach and Huntington Beach topping the list.
