With over 680 square miles of lakes and a portion of the Blue Ridge Mountains, South Carolina is a honeypot for tourists who love to experience nature. Of course, the beautiful beaches, exciting theme parks, and seeming never-ending collection of interesting attractions also play a part in the many plane tickets purchased to South Carolina every year. Whatever it is you enjoy, you'll find it in the Palmetto State.
Even though South Carolina's temperatures are enjoyable throughout the fall and winter, tourists seem to flock to the state during the warm summer months. This means if you're looking for cheap flights to South Carolina, book your flight in fall or winter. Then again, with seaside destinations such as Myrtle Beach and great events like Mount Pleasant's Sweetgrass Cultural Arts Festival, it's difficult to not want a summer visit.
If you would like to visit during cooler months, hotels in Columbia, SC might be just what you need. Even better, Columbia's airport is only 7 miles from hotels in the city center. The capital has great events throughout the year. There's the Greek Festival in September and the Columbia International Festival in April. To add some culture to your life, you could also check out the International Piano Competition in March and November's Chitlin Strut in Salley.
If you miss out on the Chitlin Strut, no worries. There are still many exciting options for southern cuisine, and since Charleston has landed been ranked as one of the 13 greatest food towns in the U.S., "Chucktown" might be where you should lay your head. You'll also find attractions like amusement parks and famous beaches open throughout the year.
If you want diverse attractions to enjoy, flights to South Carolina are what you should be looking for. Make sure to reserve via Travelocity and save up to $537 by booking South Carolina hotels and flights at the same time.
