Last week I told you I’m thinking about Spring Break 2012 destinations to take my kids. Most of the places were in Florida and within a reasonable driving distance from Atlanta.

I’ve also explored places to take a break here in Georgia and in South Carolina. Here are six places we could go that are within a reasonable driving distance from our home and has a beach. I am dying to get to one very soon.

Tybee Island, GA

Distance: 4hours and 28 minutes


Hilton Head, SC

Distance: 4 hours and 40 minutes


Myrtle Beach, SC

Distance: 6 hours and 24 minutes


Folly Beach, SC

Distance: 5 hours and 20 minutes

We will choose our destination soon because time is already running out to get the best deals. I typically use and check out to find hotels to stay in. I usually find good deal there. Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of group deals through Groupon, Loclly, and Half Off Depot. The travel deals are pretty nice both in destinations and in prices. I’m learning there are certain restrictions so it pays to read carefully.

I will write, take photos, and video of our travels this spring and summer so look for that in the future.

Where have you been out of these six places? Where do you vote we go?
