Any transportation to beachs ?

I am working on a trip to the beaches from Connecticut. I am searching information on taking a train to Fayetteville which seems to be the closest stop available to the beaches.

Are there Taxis in Fayetteville ?

Do you think any of them would flat rate a trip to the beach area ?

Any suggestions at all ??

The best way is to rent a car. Which beach do you like?

I am looking very hard at Holden Beach.

Is there a car rental location at the train station ?

Probably not. However, Enterprise will bring a car to you. I have taken that train may times. Be aware that it can run late.

That's good point. Let us know if you want to come to Charleston. We can fix you right up. I do love Holden, though.

Yes Explorer.......................

I am looking at a lot of travel for a good warm beach !!

I never thought about the Carolinas until I saw something on T.V. recently. It made me think that it just might be for me.

Thus all these questions.

Thus this flurry of activite here.

Never been except passing thru on 95 to Florida.

I'm not trying to sell you on it. I love all the nice quiet beaches. The only thing we have that the wonderful NC beaches don't is world class unbelievable food. Oh and all that historic bizness lol! Have fun. I know you will.

While Charleston and Savannah are busy themselves there are some wonderful quiet peaceful beaches.

Sometimes people don't realize that Charleston and Savannah or not on ocean beaches, but on rivers. So you'd go further out to the ocean beaches.

For example, google Savannah Ga and take a look at Tybee Island. Or Charleston and look at Edisto or maybe Sullivan's Island.

Others, too, once you get into it all.

And it'll be quieter if you're looking at going in the fall.

Well shanklemsw------

The food of Charleston sounds oh so good !!!

But did I forget to tell you the reason I am looking for miles of secluded beach to walk is so I can walk-off-the-pounds !!! ( lol )

If I let meyself eat my way thru Charlston or Savannah where my girl Paula Deen is...I'd need another second vacation to walk off those sweet buttery treats.......that I HOPE are not all available on Holden Beach !!! (hahahahah)
