South Carolina Transportation

  • First Train Trip In The USA!

    I departed from Union Station, Washington DC and took the train to Dillon South Carolina. I had never traveled by train in the U.S. but had just returned from Europe where I learned quite a bit about the ease and fun of train travel.I wanted to experience the difference between European trains and those in the USA. It seemed quite similar to me. I...

  • Intercoastal Waterway aka ICW

    Beginning in the fall of 2000, most of our visits to SC were by boat as we cruised down the Intercoastal. We usually stopped in the Charleston area to see our grandchildren.The ICW enters SC near Little River Inlet up by Myrtle Beach. It passes Barefoot Landing and goes through the Pine Island Cut AKA the Rock Pile. The hidden rock ledges along...

  • Motorcycle Road Trip

    On our Sunday afternoon road trip through South Carolina we stopped at several small towns enroute to just walk around a bit or possibly find another photo op. In the town on Denmark, South Carolina I happened to see these motorcyclist across the street trying to figure out something. They were parked in front of an out of business gas station with...

  • South Carolina Welcome Center

    Here is a South Carolina Welcome Center. These are located at the rest areas past the state line. These are great places to go because they have a wealth of information on destinations all around South Carolina. They also have free road maps they can give you should you need one.

  • Ride the Rickshaw

    the only way to get around charleston, SC is to take a rickshaw. The city is small enough tha you can get anywhere you want by taking a rickshaw. You will also get to see the sights in peace while on your ride. If you take a ride, ask for me, it's my job!!!!

  • The boat to Daufuskie Island

    Daufuskie Island is linked to the mainland (that is, Hilton Head Island) ONLY by boat. There is no bridge, and if the locals have their way, there never will be. They rather like being a bit isolated. The boat ride from Hilton Head to Daufuskie Island is a delight, equal to the trip around the island itself. Along the way are many interesting...

  • Daufuskie Island

    Many rent golfcarts to travel about Daufuskie Island. I took a guided, narrated tour on this open bus. Learn some interesting facts about this place. Observe the local wildlife; the guided pointed out an osprey's nest to me. Check the website for more details.

  • South Carolina Roads

    South Carolina has some long flat highways, speed is average 70MPH. Serveral rest stops so if you feel tired while driving pull over for your own safety. On my way back from Florida I saw the after affects of an SUV overturned with a large trailer, not sure if it was because of a sleeply driver or not but don't take the chance. STOP AT A REST STOP...

  • Greyhound on the road

    Like every other US state, South Carolina has a good highway and Interstate system that connects the state with the rest of the nation. I took the Greyhound Bus to pass through South Carolina.

  • As with all things involving...

    As with all things involving the US, the car reigns supreme for getting there....and getting around though the cities themselves are best explored on foot, an option these horses wish you'd consider too. ;>

  • From Wisconsin, we have found...

    From Wisconsin, we have found no good way to get directly to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We flew down on our first trip with a connecting flight from Chicago in Atlanta, then on to Myrtle. Approx travel time: 10 hrsThen two years later we drove straight down, through the Smoky Mountains, all interstate driving of exactly 1000 miles. Approx travel...

  • Several airports. Myrtle...

    Several airports. Myrtle beach, Columbia, and Greenville-Spartanburg airports. The interstate highways; I-20, I-95, I-77 and I-26 will get u anywhere.By car. If u fly into Columbia, it is in the middle of the state. You can get to any destination in a couple of hours at the most. And, all 4 major interstates go thru Columbia. You can go North,...

  • There are airpots in South...

    There are airpots in South Carolina, but its expensive to fly here. The cheapest is definately Myrtle Beach. Other than that, SOuth Carolina's highways are effecient and in good condition. I-26 is a major thoroughfare form the western part of the state to the coast and I-95 traverses the state from north to south. Both these highways can be...

    Rent a car--at this point I have to plug AVIS rental cars for being so helpful. I left my rental car parked over nite in a field when I went to the SC football game...bad idea as someone smashed the side window and took my stuff out of the back seat. But Avis took the car back no questions asked and there were no additional charges. Never got my...

  • Take a plane if you don't feel...

    Take a plane if you don't feel like driving forever. I flew into Columbia and LL COOL J was on my flight! Silly me should have taken a picture with him, and I will always regret it now. But I did get his autograph, but I felt like I was bothering him, so I didn't want to ask for time I will!

  • Flying:Getting here depends...

    Flying:Getting here depends on where you want to go. To go to the capital (Columbia SC) you can fly into Columbia Metro Airport (CAE). There are limited airlines with Delta, USAir having the most traffic. Another choice to consider is Charlotte NC which is about 70 miles North of Columbia. You can fly there and drive to SC in about 1 1/2 hrs. The...

  • I think the taxi system is not...

    I think the taxi system is not the best, especially for a place where people tend to get drunk. You really need to drive yourself, because there are no public trans. buses, and no subway. Traffic can get very annoying. Drive, Drive, Drive.
