South Carolina must-sees/must-dos: The Chemist, Myrtle Beach, go to Charleston and wander around near Rainbow Row, and go see Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

South Carolina things to skip if you’re crunched for time: Myrtle Beach – very similar to all other beach towns, Slave Mart Museum in Charleston, in my opinion, there was not enough information from slaves’ perspectives.
