Upon reading the reviews, and noticed many complaints about roaches, I quickly cancelled my reservation and searched for another place.

We've done all the usual things, including Daufuskie Island (our first time there was in 1985 with NO development!), and are looking for something different. We stay in Sea Pines, so we've done just about everything there. Maybe an eco-tour? Would prefer one for adults.

      We're driving from Chicago to Garden City, SC (20 miles from Myrtle Beach) this weekend. We'll have kids ranging from 7 to 2 1/2. We'd like to spend an afternoon doing something fun on the way down to break up the trip a little. And we're also looking for suggestions in the Myrtle Beach/Garden City area, especially rainy day stuff, as the ocean and pool will probably take care of the nice days. We were thinking of stopping in Smokey Mt. Nat'l Park, at the north visitor center, near Gatlinburg. Does anyone have any specific suggestions for easy hikes or anything to do fairly close to the visitor center. We'll only have the 7 and 4 year old with us on the way down.

I wonder if anyone else is going to be in Charleston on those dates and would be willing to join us for this tour. It is a very interesting exhibit. The cost is $20 per person, $8 for children, and they say to allow around 1.5 hours for the entire experience. If I could find 16 new friends, I would be happ

      Hotel / Things to Do for a Short Stay

      Charleston Feb 20, 2015 at 8:34 PM

      Hello! I'm driving to Boston from Fort Lauderdale and will be in Charleston for a day and a half, from about 6 PM on June 20 until I have to check out of whatever hotel I stay in on June 22. My first question is about hotels. I'll be travelling with two largish dogs and don't want to spend a ton of money, so my hotel choices are limited. I found an inexpensive La Quinta in North Charleston--is this a decent area? I don't know anything about Charleston, so I have no idea about neighborhoods, but the fact that this hotel is so many fewer points in my credit card rewards program than others makes me nervous. My second questions is, if I only have one night and one full day, what should I do? I love history, food, and running if that narrows things down at all.

      Thanks in advance, everyone!

      "South of the Border" ok for me and my kids?

      South Carolina Jun 12, 2014 at 1:16 PM

      I'm about to drive 750 miles each way with a 6 year old and a 4 year old. It occured to me that on the way home, the border between SC and NC would be a good distance to plan our overnight stop. As a bonus, watching the hundreds of billboards for the South of the Border tourist attraction would keep the kids entertained and build anticipation. As many times as I've passed it, I've never stopped. I'm fully expecting campy and possibly overpriced, but is it safe? Is it somewhere you would feel safe staying overnight with young children?
