13 Places To Spend Spring Break 2019 In South Carolina

Spring break is fast approaching, and it's time to make travel plans. I'm a South Carolina native, and I've spent many spring breaks in my home state. If you live in South Carolina or plan to visit during spring break, you may feel like the only place to go is Charleston. However, there are loads of really neat places right here in our state waiting to be visited. Here are 13 places you've gotta check out if you're planning to spend spring break in the Palmetto State.

1. Beaufort

If you like the feel of Charleston but hate the amount of people, Beaufort may be the place for you. With fun activities like fishing, visiting historical mansions, and eating seafood at delicious restaurants, you won't run out of things to do in this seaside city.

2. Middleton Place and other Charleston plantations

Are you a history buff? If so, then you've gotta visit Middleton Place over spring break. There are many gorgeous historic plantations in the Charleston area, and Middleton Place is one of my personal favorites. This link will help you start planning an unforgettable trip to the plantation: https://www.middletonplace.org

3. Dirty Myrtle

Despite the fact that Myrtle Beach is mainstream in my opinion, it could still make for a riveting spring break destination.

4. Wadmalaw Island

Ever seen "The Notebook?" Chances are, if you drive around Wadmalaw Island a while, you might be able to spot the iconic white house from the movie.

5. Charleston (a.k.a Chucktown)

Yes, Charleston is a popular tourist destination, but have you seen the place? Charleston, supposedly the #1 city in the U.S. and Canada, is such a spunky, Southern city that begs to be adored. Find out all you need to know at https://www.charlestoncvb.com

If you're more of a mountain person, Caesars Head State Park is right up your alley. I love the mountains of South Carolina, Caesars Head being one of my favorite national parks to visit. Even if you've never hiked a day in your life, you'll be able to enjoy the spectacular views in this park. Visit https://southcarolinaparks.com/caesars-head for more details.

8. Cypress Gardens

Here's another place you might recognize from "The Notebook." Cypress Gardens, located in Monks Corner, is 170 acres of pure beauty. It's closed until April 13 due to flood damage, but check out this link if you think you'll be able to visit during your spring break: https://www.cypressgardens.info

9. Columbia

Columbia is definitely the place to go if you're wanting some city vibes over spring break. Here you'll find buzzing nightlife, great shops (like Urban Outfitters, can I get an amen?), top-of-the-line spas, and so much more. Visit https://www.experiencecolumbiasc.com/things-to-do/spas-and-salons/ to learn more.

10. Greenville

Another city to visit in South Carolina is Greenville. Located in the upstate, Greenville has a lot to offer and will keep you busy during spring break. Start planning your trip using their website, https://www.visitgreenvillesc.com

11. Lake Jocassee

Oceans and mountains and cities are great, but so are lakes. Lake Jocassee is a gorgeous destination in northwest South Carolina that's fed by the cool mountain rivers nearby, and it's the perfect spot to cool off and relax during spring break.

12. Isle of Palms

My family has gone to the Isle of Palms nearly every year since I was a baby so I may be a little biased, but it's literally such a great vacation destination for spring break. Isle of Palms is conveniently located near Charleston but is far away enough to provide a relaxing beach experience. It's recently become a popular spring break destination so be sure to check it out!

13. Hunting Island State Park

I know several people who've visited Hunting Island State Park and love it! Right near Beaufort, this is South Carolina's most popular state park, and it's home to the only lighthouse in the state that lets visitors climb to the top, at a towering 132 feet. To learn more about the lighthouse and why you should visit Hunting Island State Park, click this link: https://southcarolinaparks.com/hunting-island

There are plenty of fun places to visit in South Carolina, especially since it's a coastal state. If you've decided to stay in the Palmetto State for spring break, no worries! You'll have plenty to do and plenty to see. Spring break is so close - hang in there y'all! We'll all be relaxing somewhere pretty very soon.

This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.
