Hi there we are planning to fly to Charlotte from NY for a week with our two children (8 and 9) in Late August. We live in France and so I am not really very familiar with where we should go. We want to stay on or near a beach but in an 'upmarket' location either in a rental or four/five star hotel. I have read the forums but am still not sure. The children love the beach but we love restaurants and shopping so we are looking for a good mix . As we have never visited before should we go to Savannah? Any help you can give us would be great fully received. I am sorry I can't be more specific .
