Driving from Orlando to Pawleys Island

Visiting Pawleys Island mid Sept from Scotland. The closet airport with the best flight times seems to be Charleston, however the prices are in excess of £700.

A cheaper option would be flying into Orlando at £150 cheaper each person.

Any thoughts or recommendations would help decide our route?

Flying into Orlando will significantly increase your drive time, and depending upon your arrival time, may require an additional overnight stop. Pawleys is a couple hours from Charleston airport, but 8 to 8.5 hours from Orlando.

You may have already checked them, but the following airports will offer much shorter, much easier drives than Orlando. In this order: (1) Raleigh NC, (2) Charlotte NC, (3) Atlanta GA.

Hope y'all have a wonderful visit. If I can help with any questions regarding Pawleys Island, please let me know.

Sounds like a good choice to me. We've made the trip to Orlando a couple times, and it's a long ride. Hope y'all have a wonderful visit. There's a great group on here who know Pawleys well and are happy to help with any questions.
