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

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.

3. Dirty Myrtle

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.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it).

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
