I am taking my 17-year-old son to NC& SC to look at some colleges. Two of the colleges are Coastal Carolina and UNCW. I am thinking that we will spend our two nights in that vicinity, whether at one hotel or two. We then head up north to look at East Carolina on Thursday.
I think he would LOVE to stay in Myrtle Beach. I have not been there since I was a child, so I don't know where the hot spots are. I would like to be able to walk to restaurants and attractions if possible, since I will have a rental car, and if those beach towns are as crowded as those here in MD, I'd rather not!
Staying on the beach would be nice, but I really don't want to spend too much money, since we are paying for airfare and car rental.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
