I am going to Myrthe Beach for 2 weeks with my 2 daugthers aged 5 and 14. We rented a condominium for both weeks. I am a historian and likes the waterfront. We are from Canada and I've never been to this part of the US. We will have a rental car and I'm good on highways, but would prefer not to drive in the cities, or as little as possible. I can pay for activities; but would rather keep costs down for hotels - however, they need a pool.
I was thinking of doing a 3 day break from the beach, either late during our first week or early on our second week. Would it be crazy to do :
leave early on the Thursday or Sunday and do plantation/georgetown make it to Savannah
arrive late in a Savannah hotel; visit night waterfront; city tour.
at the end of the afternoon, drive to Charleston
Sleep in Charleston hotel
End of day drive back to MB
Alternative plans to keep costs down was to do a 1 day trip to Charleston and another day trip for plantations and Georgetown.
suggestions? hotel recommendations? Other best plans? Or should I just stick around in MB?
