NORTH & SOUTH CAROLINA
North and South Carolina’s coasts offer some of the most beautiful destinations on the Atlantic Ocean. The two states are covered with pristine beaches, hundreds of years worth of historical sites, and plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventures. And this amazing coastline is less than 500 miles from Columbus, Ohio.
North Carolina’s coasts have often been popular spots for summer recreation by families who love the options that the Outer Banks barrier peninsula provides. You can play in the waves on the Atlantic Ocean, or explore the warm, shallow waters of the brackish or fresh water sounds.
In South Carolina, you can spend mornings on the sand and afternoons riding amusement rides in downtown Myrtle Beach, golfing professional courses on Hilton Head Island, or going back in time on a historical journey in Beaufort.
The Carolinas are a living picture postcard that will make your friends back home jealous of your vacation to such a beautiful part of the country. There are dozens of great campgrounds along the Carolina Coast — the ideal choice for a beach vacation with Road Adventures.

On the coasts of the Carolinas, you might want to plan for watersports including kayaking or SUPing in between trips to delicious seafood restaurants or notable historic sites. You can choose to relax on the beach or get out on the water. You can fish from the surf, a pier, or your own chartered vessel. And you don’t have to pick between sunrises and sunsets when it comes to what will be more beautiful — they’re both stunning. Get ready for sand between your toes and a big smile on your face on the Carolina coast.
