• Hilton Head (South Carolina): Travel + Leisure has hailed these beaches as being among the most beautiful in the world, and we concur. The resort-studded island offers 12 miles of white-sand beaches; still others front the Calibogue and Port Royal sounds. The sand is extremely firm, providing a good surface for biking and many beach games. It's also ideal for walking and jogging -- against a backdrop of natural dunes, live oaks, palmettos, and tall Carolina pines.
  • Myrtle Beach & the Grand Strand (South Carolina): This is the most popular sand strip along the Eastern Seaboard, attracting 12 million visitors a year -- more than the state of Hawaii. Sure, it's overdeveloped and crowded in the summer, but what draws visitors to Myrtle Beach is 10 miles of sand, mostly hard packed and the color of brown sugar.
