Stretching from the Atlantic coast to the remote Smoky Mountains, through rolling farmland and historic towns, holidays to North Carolina and South Carolina are ideal for those looking for the ‘real’ America away from the crowds and the traditional tourist trail. Take to the road on a fly drive holiday and follow the Outer Banks Scenic Byway along a chain of over 100 barrier islands that trace North Carolina’s shoreline. Look out for wild horses, picturesque lighthouses and legends of Blackbeard the pirate en route. Inland you will find the Great Smoky Mountains National park replete with unique wildlife, hiking trails and home to bluegrass music. Your South Carolina road trip can take in the boardwalk, buzzing bars and neon lights of Myrtle Beach as well as the grand and elegant coastal city of Charleston. With local seafood and a burgeoning brewing scene, holidays to the Carolinas offer a genuine taste of a remarkable region.
