South East USA

The southeastern states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, and West Virginia have much to offer. Savannah and Charleston are some of the most charming towns in the region with plenty of history, pretty scenery, and characteristic hospitality. In Charleston visitors can check out the restored colorfully painted colonial buildings of “Rainbow Row” and can visit Fort Sumter where the first shots of the American Civil War rang out in 1861. At the centuries old Charleston City Market Gullah women sell intricate woven baskets and local artisans display handmade art and crafts.

There are also more metropolitan cities such as Atlanta, as well as many sparsely populated rural towns scattered across the countryside of the region, where agricultural was once the predominant mainstay of the economy.

Rural, picturesque countryside characterizes much of the land. Notable scenic drives include the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Skyline Drive which passes through beautiful Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. Hikers can navigate miles of rugged pathways along Appalachian Trail which passes 14 states including Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. Those who enjoy fishing, camping, rafting, kite-surfing, and other outdoor activities will find plenty to dive into.
