Cheap flights to South Carolina

The American state of South Carolina is located in the southeast of the United States of America, bordering the Savannah River, North Carolina, Georgia, and the Atlantic Ocean. Having been admitted to statehood in 1788, it is the 8th state of the USA and one of the original thirteen British colonies that first founded the United States.

South Carolina is the country’s 10th smallest state – with an area of only slightly over 80,000 square kilometers – but its 24th most populous, with a population of more than 4 million (as of May 2015). It is nicknamed the ‘Palmetto State’, after its official state tree the Sabal Palmetto.

Besides swaying palm trees and coastal attractions, South Carolina is also known for its agricultural exports – it is one of the USA’s most prolific peach producers, as well as one of the biggest exporters of corn, chicken broilers and cattle.

Getting around

Like most places in the United States, South Carolina is best navigated by car. With its extensive network of well-developed highways and roads as well as a general abundance of parking spaces, road tripping in South Carolina could be fun, enjoyable, and extremely scenic.

For those who’d prefer not to helm their own vehicle, the ubiquitous long-distance Greyhound buses are available to help you get around. Otherwise, those on a tight schedule may want to consider taking intra-state domestic flights to save time.

If you’re staying within South Carolina’s main cities (e.g. Charleston or Columbia) fret not as public transport options are a-plenty within these urban areas.

What to see and do

Say ‘South Carolina’ and what comes to mind would most likely be ‘Myrtle Beach’, so make sure your trip to the state includes a visit to that pretty region. A coastal city on South Carolina’s eastern shore facing the North Atlantic Ocean, Myrtle Beach is the place for a perfect American beach vacation. Situated on the ‘Grand Strand’ - a 60-mile long stretch of beach along the east coast of the United States - Myrtle Beach is one of the country’s top tourist destinations, receiving more than 10 million visitors yearly. Besides the classic golden sands, blue waters and beach facilities, Myrtle Beach’s attractiveness is further sweetened by the fact that it is host to a huge variety of American festivals, concerts, conventions, shows and more over the year - some of these include the highly anticipated BikeFest, SummerFest, Carolina Country Music Festival, Ocean Boulevard’s Hot Summer Nights and more.
