Planning a road trip from the north east wondering if there is any Jewish community in the area.

Charleston SC used to be one of the centers of American Jewish life. I believe there is still an active community.

Hilton Head SC is a very popular tourist destination and may have a chabad

no daily minyan in RDU and the daily minyan in Charlotte isn't Orthodox

Quote
Rabbi Oppenheim completed the bulk of his studies at Mir Yeshiva Kollel in Jerusalem. In 1996 he received smicha (rabbinical ordination) from Rav Yitzchak Kulitz, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem. He also trained in pedagogy and pastoral psychology at Ohr LaGolah Leadership Institute. His first teaching job in 1996 was at Yeshivat Shaarei Yerushalayim. Three years later, he began teaching at Aish HaTorah in Jerusalem. He became a Senior Lecturer in Discovery Seminars and Jerusalem Fellowships, a Gemora (Talmud) Rebbi in the Beis Midrash program, a Marriage Education Counselor, and an Advisor for madrichim (counselors) on Aish programs. His teaching is imbued with an attitude derived from his years at Aish HaTorah: “[to provide]opportunities for Jews of all backgrounds to discover the beauty and meaning of their heritage in an atmosphere of open inquiry and mutual respect” (www.aish.com). He started the Dallas Area Torah Association community in Plano, Texas where he lived before coming to Charlotte.

Many conservative congregations have daily minyanim.

Charleston has a few diff Shuls. At least two or three of them were orthodox even though many of the members were not.

Charlotte had a Chabad with minyanim as well as Raleigh.

I was there a bunch of years ago but this was the status then.
