We are a traveling retired couple heading from Maine in South Carolina this coming October. I've done my homework on routes, lodging and major attractions. I'm looking for thoughts and ideas on the smaller, unique experiences that are easily missed. Things such as unique places to eat, places that capture the culture, off the beaten path types of things. Will be in the Columbia, Beaufort, Charleston, Wilmington NC area for about 8 days. Any ideas would be appreciated. If anyone is heading to Maine I'd be glad to help with any questions or suggestions. Happy Traveling!
