Sometimes you just need to get away and do something you love. The need can easily be solved with a quick getaway during the week or on the weekend. I am a Carolina girl, and I have visited a few places throughout North Carolina and South Carolina. Therefore, I am sharing a few places that were quick getaways for me.
Raleigh, North Carolina: I have lived near the Raleigh area for two and a half years. Several things in the small metropolitan area will keep one entertained. There are history museums, art museums, and a variety of dining places. When visiting the downtown area, you may come across a festival or concert on any street corner. There are several shopping centers within the city and surrounding areas for those who love to shop when they go out.
Asheville, North Carolina: If you enjoy the mountain life and scenery, Asheville will be ideal. Biltmore is one of the most visited attractions in Asheville, North Carolina. The historical site receives thousands of visitors each year; it’s a family-run business. You can stay on the grounds and enjoy all of the available amenities from horseback riding, horse & carriage rides, dining, house tours, walks in the gardens, wine tasting, and shopping. Downtown Asheville has several things to do, such as visiting art galleries, concerts, and poetry nights for those who love are.
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina: Myrtle Beach is a stretch of several growing beaches and attracts several visitors each year! There are several things to do, such as going to a show at the Alabama Theatre, dine at one of the several restaurants at Broadway at the Beach or Barefoot Landing, going golfing, visiting Brook Green Gardens, and much more. Staying oceanfront in your favorite hotel or condo can be relaxing and very rejuvenating to wake up to.
Charleston, South Carolina: Charleston is a popular place to visit for a quick getaway. When I am at work, I meet so many people who are traveling to the Charleston area. Many of them are going for the fine dining restaurants, historical sites, and hitting the beaches. With the summer approaching, it can be a place for friends to explore the nightlife together or just enjoy a quick weekend together. During my visits, I am constantly hitting the shopping centers and eating at different restaurants. However, one of my best trips was visiting the Boone Hall Historical site with my family. We explored the grounds, which were very educational and eventful.
