Myrtle Beach is a coastal city on the east coast of the United States in Horry County, South Carolina. Start off your visit on the 6th (Fri): look for gifts at Bijuju and then wander the streets of Broadway at the Beach.

To see where to stay, ratings, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Myrtle Beach trip itinerary planning site .

London, UK to Myrtle Beach is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from London to Myrtle Beach due to the time zone difference. In September, Myrtle Beach is somewhat warmer than London - with highs of 33°C and lows of 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) early enough to drive to Hilton Head.

Hilton Head

A Hilton Head vacation may be heaven for a golfer, but the area also offers all kinds of other options for sports fans.
On the 8th (Sun), trek along Hilton Head Island Bike Trails, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, then look for gifts at The Oilerie Hilton Head Island, and finally get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour. On the 9th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, then get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, then view the masterpieces at The Silver Garden Silversmiths and Art Gallery, and finally take in the exciting artwork at Endangered Arts.

Plan my Hilton Head trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can drive from Myrtle Beach to Hilton Head in 5 hours. Other options are to do a combination of bus and car; or fly. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in September, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) so you can go by car to Charleston.
