Myrtle beach to outer banks -

In One Week in South Carolina

Coastal South Carolina is infamously known as the "Redneck Riviera," especially the area around Myrtle Beach. But it also boasts the South's grandest antebellum city, Charleston, and one of the great playgrounds along the East Coast at Hilton Head. Along the way are towns of charm and grace, especially Georgetown, as well as a favorite with kids, Tybee Island (although this is just across the South Carolina state line in Georgia).

Days 1 & 2: Myrtle Beach & the Grand Strand

If you went along with us on the first week's tour of the Outer Banks , you can pick up where we left off in the city of Wilmington and continue south for 75 miles into Myrtle Beach, where we recommend a 2-night stopover.

At times the entire mile string of beaches, aptly called the Grand Strand, seems to have been designed expressly for children, with kid-friendly facilities and amusements as well as dozens of resorts serving kids' menus. Family rates at many of the hotels are yet another enticement.

The Strand stretches from the border with North Carolina in the north all the way south to Georgetown. At the hub is Myrtle Beach itself. Most families like to organize their time between the beach and man-made amusements. Parents may want to sneak away for some serious golfing.

On the first day, allowing time for the beach, families can visit the Myrtle Waves Water Park and Ripley's Aquarium, the most visited attraction in South Carolina.

While still based at a hotel along the Grand Strand, you can spend the morning of Day 2 exploring Myrtle Beach State Park, with its sandy beach and pavilions, picnic tables, and a swimming pool. It's riddled with nature trails. In the afternoon, drive down to Murrells Inlet, 11 miles south. It's called the Seafood Capital of South Carolina. While in the area, you can pay a call on the beautiful Brookgreen Gardens. Back in Myrtle Beach, attend one of the many variety shows in the area, including the Alabama Theatre for family fun.

Day 3: Georgetown

On the morning of Day 3, head down the coast along Route 17 until you see the turnoff for Huntington Beach State Park, 3 miles south of Murrells Inlet and across from Brookgreen Gardens, which we've already visited. The 2,acre park offers a completely different experience from the gardens, and it opens onto one of the best sandy beaches along the Grand Strand. We suggest you spend the morning here and also enjoy a picnic under one of the shelters and a stroll along the boardwalk.

After lunch, continue the rest of the way to Georgetown, a distance of only 28 miles south of Myrtle Beach. After checking in to a hotel, we suggest one of the river cruises aboard the Carolina Rover or the Jolly Rover that set sail from Georgetown Harbor. Georgetown has more than 50 historic buildings that date back as far as

Days 4 & 5: Charleston

From Georgetown on the morning of Day 4, drive southwest along Route 17 for 62 miles into the historic seaport of Charleston, the highlight of most visits to South Carolina and a very kid-friendly town. Check into a hotel for 2 nights and begin your adventure.

For a lesson in history outside the classroom, kids can see where the Civil War began at the Fort Sumter National Monument. Later the whole family will be fascinated by the H. L. Hunley Confederate submarine, which sank one fateful day in but was later raised. A good 2 or 3 hours can be spent at Charles Towne Landing enjoying its acres; for kids, this is one of the highlights of a visit to Charleston. Wind down the afternoon with a visit to the South Carolina Aquarium.

For Day 5, you should try to hit one or more of the following four major attractions in the Charleston environs. The most Mercury-footed families manage to see all of them in 1 day. If that's too fast a pace for you, skip one or two. In order of importance, they are Magnolia Plantation, Middleton Place, Cypress Gardens, and Drayton Hall.

Day 6: Hilton Head

It's a mile drive to our next overnight stopover at Hilton Head, so you should leave as early as you can in the morning. Follow the signs out of Charleston to Route 17, heading southwest until it reaches Route 21 going west to I Follow this until you come to the junction with Route , which will take you east into Hilton Head.

The most fun place to stay for families is Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort. Devote the day to romps along the beaches and taking one of the boat cruises. In the afternoon, you can take your kids to the nature preserve of Sea Pines Forest Preserve for walks among the wildlife, including white-tailed deer. There are several picnic areas here for lunch. Overnight in Hilton Head.

Day 7: Savannah

You have a choice. You can stay yet another day on Hilton Head, enjoying its beaches and outdoor activities, or you can drive across the Georgia state line for a visit to Savannah, miles south of Charleston. Should you choose the latter, drive west once again to I, which you follow south until you see the exits for Savannah. I lies 10 miles west of Savannah. Just follow the signs leading to the Historic District, where you can overnight.

Savannah is packed with attractions the entire family can enjoy, including the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum; the Massie Heritage Interpretation Center, geared to children; a tour of the Civil War forts; and Savannah riverboat cruises.

My Boyfriend (34yrs) and I (27yrs) are planning a little getaway in June and are undecided between the Outer Banks and Myrtle Beach. Any recommendations between the two? And if so any particular resort or cottage resort? Or if is there another great beach resort within reasonable driving distance from Virginia please let me know. Thanks for your help.

We have vacationed at both, and preferred the Outer Banks, but they were completely different types of trips. The Outer Banks has lots of huge homes for rent, and consequently hosts large groups of family or friends. Not much to do at night, so it was quiet and restful.

Myrtle Beach would be terrific with kids or young adults who want to get off the beach and play. There are arcades, movies, amusements parks, mini golf, etc, galore!

I would recommend taking the extra hour and a half and going further south to Charleston, for a younger couple w/no kids, you will find far more to do and see there than Myrtle Beach. And if you want to stay on/near the beach you can choose from Isle of Palms, Folly Beach, Sullivan's Island or Kiawah Island.

Outer Banks all the way! I hate Myrtle Beach, it is an over crowded tourist trap. I have vacationed in Duck, NC a couple of times and am thinking of going there again this summer. The beaches are uncrowded and beautiful! If you go to Corolla there are some areas that you can only get to with a 4 wheel drive vehicle. There are also wild horses that run the beaches.

I also agree with Buckeye in SC about the Charleston, SC. The area is so much nicer than Myrtle Beach, with lots to do. Charleston is my husbands favorite city to visit in the US. If you go to Folly Beach, you should be a strong swimmer though. The currents are strong. But, if you like to surf, it is known as the best surfing beach on the Atlantic. The waves are huge!

Seashells Beach Outer Banks NC

If you discovered this post, you may or may not have heard of the Outer Banks until recently. Commonly referred to as “OBX” the Outer Banks are a group of narrow barrier islands that sit off the coast of inland North Carolina.

A few reasons why the Outer Banks of North Carolina is so great:

  • Over miles of pristine coastline with very easy accessibility to the area beaches.
  • Little commercial development – this is not Myrtle Beach, Virginia Beach or Hilton Head!
  • There are many, many beautiful vacation rental homes as well as condominiums to select from.

These are just a few quick bulleted reasons why we are confident that once you vacation on NC’s Outer Banks the first time; you will be back for more before too long. Many, many individuals who visit the area once decide to carve in a week-long stay annually on the islands.

More Reasons Why the OBX is Special

Just being able to relax on the beach with a cold drink in hand is enough for many individuals - we get it! One of the great things about the Outer Banks is that you can either spend your entire week-long stay at the beach, or you can venture out and enjoy everything the area has to offer for visitors.

  • If you enjoy fishing, you'll be pleased to learn that there are several world-class piers as well as a couple of area marinas that offer both offshore and inshore fishing charter adventures.
  • The Outer Banks is home to some of the best waves discover customer service bank the East Coast of the United States. Just before a tropical storm or nor'easter is typically when the waves are at their pinnacle. There are several places on the Outer Banks that surfers and seasoned bodyboarders flock to that you'll want to pay attention to. 
  • Dozens of fantastic locally-owned restaurants to choose from. If you love fresh seafood then you're in for a treat! Some of our favorite eateries include Sam & Omie's, Tale of the Whale, and The Blue Point. 
  • Plenty of activities for any adrenaline junkie to partake in. From hang gliding chinese food san antonio the sand dunes of Jockey's Ridge State Park, to kiteboarding on the sound side in Rodanthe, there is so much to do during your vacation.
  • Lighthouses! Need we say more? Bodie Island, Cape Hatteras, Currituck, Ocracoke, and Roanoke Marshes Lighthouses are all worth a visit. Some of these structures you can climb to the top of others are just for photos and history. We put together a map of all the lighthouses on the Outer Banks to help you plan your stay accordingly.

Have we listed enough compelling reasons to stop what you're doing and plan a trip to the Outer Banks immediately? Hopefully!

When planning your getaway, be sure to consider the time of year you're visiting - there is a huge difference when vacationing during the summer versus the fall or "shoulder season" months.

Help! Myrtle Beach, Ocean City or Outer Banks?

Looking to branch out from Jersey Shore. We are booking around June July 6th and have children ranging from so family friendly is a plus. Don't need a lot of bells and whistles, just a nice, clean, warm beach with financial plus credit union flint michigan phone number ocean temperatures that soon in the season.

Any recommendations and/or locations are appreciated!


Big difference I think. O.C. is mid-range, middle class, and a lot of family but may be a bit young for the town itself. Pretty built up but close to NJ. Can do Rehobeth or Bethany for rental houses or condo's to get a little distance from the OC congestion.

If parents only or little-little kids, I like Cape May.


My sister in law is a travel agent and this is what she told us last year when I questioned her about our vaca Ocean city md is more of a younger hang out crowd, parties and packed beaches. Outer banks is beautiful but more of the older crowd and golfers and such. Myrtle beach is great for families who love to be constantly doing things. We ended up going to Tampa/Clearwater. That is by far my fav place to bring the kids.


Been to OC, MD for 40+ years (went as a kid) and took mine when they were younger.
There is a combo of all types there. It depends on where you stay. Plenty of stuff to do for your kids age group. Beaches do get very crowded though.
Outerbanks is nice too, but for me, too long a drive. We did it one time and drove straight thru. UGH! Then we did the drive, but took 2 days. That was better. Plenty to do there also. Kitty Hawk for one and the dunes are great. Better decide soon and book, before its too late. We always book OC, MD in January, for July vaca. ENJOY wherever you decide to go.


I've never been to Myrtle Beach or Ocean City but have been to OBX many many times. It is not just for golfers (actually I've never seen the golf courses but I know they're there somewhere). We've stayed in Corolla & it is sooooo family friendly. There's great restaurants, shopping, typical beach activies, fishing, bike rentals, etc. I would def get a place w/ a poolthere are tons of them so finding a pool will not be hard. Myrtle beach to outer banks, we've always searched & booked online without one single problem. mynewextsetup.us, mynewextsetup.us, are famous but there are several realty companies that have just as great service. The grocery stores are very busy on weekends because that's when the turn-over is. Great place for kids & adultsyou will LOVE it!


Yes, Corolla is myrtle beach to outer banks best place to go on OBX, if you want family friendly.


Try a forum search. There are threads on these places constantly.


We are doing OCMD this year instead of the Jersey Shore., its much cheaper. We stay on the quieter side of OC, th street. There are some really nice quiet condo areas, that are on the beach or walking distance to the beaches. Its a different atmosphere than the Jersey Shore, but we like it there. Beaches are clean, water is warm, where we stay the beach is not crowded. Boardwalk is just ok, but there is plenty to do there for younger kids, tons of amusement areas (Jolly Rogers), boat tours, shops and miniature golf galore. A short ride to Assateague Island which is a great trip for kids too.


We love Myrtle Beach. We have gone four or five times. Tons if stuff to do and you can not beat the beach. The ocean has been great every year we have gone with bath like water temps and no jelli fish.


It's funny because I go golfing in Myrtle Beach every year and have never golfed in OBX.

I don't even know if you can still get a place in OBX. We used to rent our house every year in November for the following August. I'm sure you can find "something" but it's probably slim pickings


You should look into Kiawah Island in South Carolina. It's about miles south of Myrtle Beach. Our family absolutely loves it there. We've been going there for twenty years+. The ocean water is always so myrtle beach to outer banks and the beach is not crowded. There are long bike trails, several golf courses and activities for kids. We usually take day trips to nearby Charleston and Savannah, Georgia. There are various types of places (i.e. condos, homes, villas, etc.) that you can stay in. The Sanctuary is a beautiful hotel on the island, but is rather pricey. You can check out available places to stay on "Cyberrentals" on the internet. We've used Beachwalker rentals in the past also. I hope you are able to visit and see what a wonderful place it is. Enjoy your vacation!


I vacationed in Myrtle Beach last summer. I do have to say it was a beautiful beach and water. No shells, no seaweed, no creepy ocean myrtle beach to outer banks hitting your leg. Warm water. I stayed just south of the state park, so very quiet there. The hotel had a dj and kid games at the pool for a couple of hours in the afternoon. For young kids, there are tons of condo rentals with fun pools and lazy rivers. Great mini golf choices. The Pirate dinner is fun for all ages.


I would think the water temperature would be a bit chilly yet. Head for Myrtle Beach. You'll have warm water and lots to do.


Thanks! Any good recommendations for places to stay in Myrtle Beach?


Look up Garden City, SC. We used to stay at the Surf Master and always had a great time!


I own property in Myrtle Beach - it is a fantastic place for the kids - clean beaches, a bunch of miniature golf places to enjoy, and there's Boardwalk at the Beach AND a brand new boardwalk. The Boardwalk at chase atm customer service phone number Beach has a nice sized lake w/ all shops and restaurants and Ripley's located completely around the lake, it's nice there for the kids, and has small rides. We love it down there. If you're up for a decent day trip, head to Charleston for the day (leave early, it's about a 2 hour drive), and go to Fort Sumter for the day - and Charleston is a very pretty, historic area if you're into that as well. Have fun!!


im surprised nobody has said emerald isle, NC. beautiful beaches and an overall fun time. mid to upscale as well. great for families and everyone. also very bike friendly!


TerryLynn, That's Broadway at the Beach, We have a place right around the corner from there. I suggest MB too. Great for kids of all ages!


Hey, Ravi, After I typed it I realized I wrote the wrong name. It IS Broadway at the Beach. I love that place!!


OC is great for kids. Great restaurants and lots of attractions.


My parents owned a condo in Myrtle Beach from the time I was in my late teens until my late thirties, and we would spend the summers there. I fell in love for the first time there, so I have very fond memories of MB. They sold it a few years ago, when they decided they weren't going to retire there. We went back last year to vist some friends that still own property in the same complex that my parents were in and they were telling us how they can't wait to sell, lots of homeless, riff raff and an increasing gang presence in Myrtle Beach. Some of the friends are retired Law Enforcement, so perhaps they are a little more sensitive to these changes but I will say that during the visit I noticed the element has changed quiet a bit in the last several years.

On the plus side During our visit we stayed in North Myrtle Beach at the Marriott at Grand Dunes which was absolutely gorgeous. Beach fantastic, weather beautiful, that is the Myrtle Beach of my youth


Wish i had your problems.


We went to emerald isle, NC last year and it was ok but it wasn't as nice as OBX. I have been doing a lot of work in the past years in bethany beach/millvile and that is a nice area.

Top Reasons Why Myrtle Beach is Better than the Outer Banks

Intwo brothers from Ohio launched the first vehicle into the air at Kill Devil Hills on the Outer Banks. It was a big myrtle beach to outer banks back in the day, but since then not much has happened on the sleepy mile strip of islands off the coast of North Carolina.

Meanwhile, Myrtle Beach has been developing like gangbusters since around the same time, amassing a wealth of attractions, restaurants, shopping, lodging, and golf courses that are enjoyed by over 14 million vacationers each year.

Basically, if you want to go sit on a beach and do nothing, go to the Outer Banks. But if you want to sit on a beach and do nothing and then have a shower and go do everything, Myrtle Beach is your best bet.

Here’s why.

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

Baseball, that Great American Pastime, is one of the most fun and relaxing ways to spend time on a vacation, especially if you have a ticket to see the hometown Pelicans while you’re here.

The super kid-friendly park hosts nightly promotions that range from running the bases after the game to beer specials and fireworks at least once a week. As for baseball on the Outer Banks, maybe you could get a Wiffle ball and bat and hope it’s not so windy that every pitch flies directly into the Atlantic? Myrtle Beach 1, Outer Banks 0.
