Why Wouldn't You Go to South Carolina?
If you're looking for the quintessential experience of southern hospitality, come to South Carolina. You simply won't find another place in the country with the charm, grace and warmth of the Palmetto State. And you'll find it everywhere you go:
- Charleston — Step back in time 150 years and stroll along cobblestone streets or dine in pre-Civil War mansions. The Historic District, known locally as "Holy City," offers palmetto lined streets, historic homes (the Nathaniel Russell and Edmonston-Alston homes are among the most interesting) and a foodie's paradise. Check out "Rainbow Row," the colorful pastel houses along East Bay Street—while you're there, get a glimpse of Fort Sumter across the water. For a unique experience, take a tour of the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon, where colonial prisoners of war were held by the British during the War for Independence.
- The ocean — With nearly 200 miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline, from the Grand Strand along the North Carolina border to the Sea Islands by Georgia, you'll find dunes, white sand beaches, hideaways and popular tourist destinations like Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head Island. Myrtle Beach offers it all, from the sun, sand and surf at the water's edge to world-class golf courses, top-notch restaurants and a wide array of shopping venues, including Broadway at the Beach, a mega-shopping and entertainment complex. Myrtle Beach is also home to Ripley's Aquarium.
- The historical attractions — One of the original 13 colonies, South Carolina has long played a pivotal role in American history. Visit famous sites from the American Revolutionary War, from Fort Moultrie to Cowpens National Battlefield, Ninety Six National Historic Site or Eutaw Springs Battlefield Park. Fort Sumter, where the American Civil War began, is in the waters off Charleston. You may not find another state with as many well-preserved antebellum plantations, from Magnolia to Boone Hall to Millford and Hopsewee.
- The restaurants — South Carolina may have the most legitimate claim as the birthplace of American barbeque. Of course, it's cooked "low and slow," but the real secret is in the sauces. South Carolina boasts four signature concoctions for your pork, chicken, ribs and brisket—mustard, pepper, vinegar or heavy tomato. Of course, you're also just a stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean—that means oyster roasts, shrimp and crab boils, and the signature dish of what's known as "low country" cuisine—shrimp and grits. Dine in elegance in restored antebellum mansions or grab a tasty treat at one of the many seafood shacks along the coast.
We'll Help You Book the Best Bus for Your Trip
The right bus can go a long way toward ensuring a successful event. When you arrange a charter bus trip through US Coachways, we'll take the time to learn the details of your trip—the anticipated size of your group, how long you expect to be on the road, any special items you'll need to bring or want to take home, and any other unique needs of your participants. We'll reach to our extensive network of charter bus service providers to locate and book the coach that best meets your needs.
If you're taking a small-to-medium-sized group to South Carolina, you'll appreciate the mini-bus. It comes in a number of models, seating anywhere from 24 to 35 comfortably. For a larger entourage, you'll want the full-sized charter bus, with room for up to 57 and an on-board restroom. You can bring as many people as you want—multiple bus rentals are almost always an option. We can also find an ADA-compliant coach if necessary.
With the exception of a few school buses, all charter buses come with climate control, high-back bucket seats, a great sound system and ample space for storing personal items. A number of modern conveniences may also be available for an extra charge, including Wifi, DVD players and monitors, hardwood floors, electrical outlets and charging stations, public address systems and leather seats. Ask your booking agent about your options.
