Discover the Highlights of the Eastern Seaboard
If you’re heading over from a nearby state, or if you’re taking a longer journey from elsewhere in the country, you’ll have one thing in common—there’s plenty to see along the way! Those that head down from the northeast can stop in popular destinations like DC and Baltimore, while those heading up from Florida can make detours to scenic coastal routes. If you’re coming from across the country, you’ll have plenty of options depending on your route, and some well-known cities to choose from. Stop in New Orleans, Denver, or Chicago—the choice is yours, and you can pre-plan your route to Isle of Palms to ensure you get there well rested!
Prepare Your Vehicle Before You Go
Of course, one of the cardinal rules of road-tripping is to make sure your vehicle is in premium condition before you go. It’s always wise to get your oil changed, and maybe even a tune up if you need it! The last thing anyone wants is to be stranded on the way to your dreamy beach destination. Be sure to preplan and familiarize yourself with your route, and if you’re using a phone-based maps app, it’s a good idea to save the route offline in case you ever run out of service. You’ll find lots of state rest stops on major freeway routes, and you’ll never be far from finding refreshments or gas on those roads either. If you like to plan ahead, pack a cooler with snacks so you can get to the Isle sooner rather than later!
