South Carolina is a golf mecca with some of the most famous courses in the world located along the coast as well as spread across the interior of the state as well. While South Carolina is probably best known for simple southern cooking and world famous BBQ, Charleston has turned into one of the top foodie destinations in the country. If you love expertly prepared farm to table cuisine prepared by creative chefs, this in itself is a reason to visit for a guys weekend!
One of our favorite places to visit are the barrier islands found along the South Carolina coast just south of Charleston. This is a magical place of incredible beauty and just the right amount of seclusion where you can feel special... but still easy to get to. While the entire coast here from Myrtle Beach to Hilton Head is dotted with legendary golf courses, Kiawah Island is special for the fact that it isn't an overdeveloped resort area. Here, among the waves, white sand beaches, and sea grass you can relax and enjoy a great golf getaway.
One of the few nice things about traveling for business is being able to rack up some serious reward points that I can figure out how to spend on my own. While the idea of using them to head off on a guys weekend with the boys is appealing, it's important to also take care of the homefront and spend some time with the wife as well.
When someone says they are going to Myrtle Beach, I automatically think Golf. Wow, was I wrong. Myrtle Beach has so much more to offer than I ever thought. Between paddle boarding, NASCAR, craft beer, sushi, steaks, and shooting lessons, Myrtle Beach is a great place for a mancation.
It is also certainly a lot more than just a great golf destination!
