Beach Destination W/ Kohser food:

- Myrtle Beach, SC (Great stuff for kids as well, not too hot)
- Savannah, GA (Very nice Andaz)

Beach Destination without Kohser food but worth it:

- Hilton Head Island, SC (Amazing Cat 4 Westin)
- Outer Banks, NC (VRBO)

Extremely underrated mountain destinations:

- Blowing Rock, NC (Chetola Lodge www.chetola.com)
- Asheville, NC (Tons of Hotel options, but check out Bitlmore Estate)
- Gatlinburg, TN

I've been to all the above so I can give more details if anyone is interested.


Hmm..some of these sound interesting...
I'm going to look into them.

Anyone have more to see than the others?

If you're into touring, history & sightseeing - Savannah. Beach, Watersports, Biking and romantic seclusion - HHI or Outerbanks. Fun stuff to do, amusement park, Ripley's believe it or not, action theaters and kids activities + great watersports and kosher food - Myrtle Beach. Whitewater rafting, swinging bridges, mountain climbing, waterfalls, hiking and breathtaking views (sometimes from above the clouds) Blowing Rock.

I vote for HHI cuz you feel like it's America's best kept secret when you're on the island.

I think that was too long of a sentence without punctuation to pass for sarcasm.
