Planning a roadtrip is one of the best parts about RVing. If you’ve already seen everything on the west coast, then it’s probably time to head east! Maybe you want to head north and see everything that the northeast has to offer, or perhaps you prefer warmer weather. If so, RVing through South Carolina should be on your list. There are also some RV-friendly events happening this year in South Carolina, such as Myrtle Beach Bike Week, so be sure to check those out as well.
