FOR LONGTIME SANDLAPPERS or those planning a first trip to the South Carolina coast, A Guide to South Carolina Beaches introduces the character, history, features, and attractions of some of the finest beaches in the United States (from Little River to the Savannah River, South Carolina has a 180-mile coastline). There's a wealth of information for anyone interested in the fun and facts of beachgoing in the Palmetto State: Who's got the tastiest seafood restaurants? Where are the most beautiful golf courses? What are the best beaches for families with young children? Starr also examines the history of each locale, replete with stories of colorful personalities and fascinating events from South Carolina's past and present. A Guide to South Carolina Beaches captures the many ambiences of the state's coastal towns and resorts. Using custom-designed maps and numerous illustrations, Starr explores popular vacation spots like the Isle of Palms, Pawleys Island, Myrtle Beach, and Cherry Grove; private resort communities like Debordieu and Kiawah Island; natural treasures like Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and Huntington Beach State Park; and the Gullah communities of St. Helena and Daufuskie islands. The guide also captures the myriad recreational opportunities along the South Carolina coast, from shell collecting and moongazing to beer drinking and shag dancing. A Guide to South Carolina Beaches, informative and entertaining for natives and visitors to the state alike, is an invaluable resource for anyone planning a getaway to the Palmetto coast or for the armchair traveler who will one day soon splash in the surf at Folly Beach or contemplate the wild beauty of Hunting Island.
