South Carolina, Kiaweah
We visit Kiaweah often, and we typically stay at the Sanctuary. For anyone looking for a wonderful beach getaway on the East Coast, this is the place (4 hours drive from Charlotte, NC, about the same from Atlanta). We love it there, the beaches are fantastic, the rooms at the Sanctuary are absolutely gorgeous, and you have all the amenities of Charleston, SC, less than an hours drive away.
You would never need to leave the Sanctuary, the restaraunts and bars are top of the line (the Jasmine Porch is awesome), and the beach is perfect for solitude, or just walking.
If you do want to head out to Charleston, just drive about 35 miles and you are downtown in the historic district. Great restaraunts are everywhere (I like 39 Rue de Jean for the French food and Fiery Ron's Home Team BBQ for real smoked barbeque and music).
Also, if you want to take pets, the Sanctuary has villas you can reserve. We took our dogs and they loved it, wide open beaches and easy waves to frolic in.
Here's a few pictures of the Sanctuary and the beach.
