Fly drive holidays

With so much to see and do and such a wide range of destinations, Fly Drive is a great way to see America.

The East Coast

Around 4 hours drive separates our four South Carolina destinations. Myrtle Beach is situated at the north end of South Carolina. Just 30 minutes south, but a world away in character is Pawleys Island. Historic Charleston is 90 minutes south of Pawleys Island. Finally,  head south about 2 hours and you come to wonderful Hilton Head Island.

Huntington Beach
Miles of unspoilt beach at Huntington Beach State Park

Given that Charleston includes the island resorts of Wild Dunes and Kiawah, that effectively makes for 6 destinations within a few hours drive so plenty of relaxing and not too much driving.

If you are flying into Atlanta or Charlotte you can also incorporate a few days on Lake Oconee at the Ritz-Carlton Reynolds as part of your itinerary.

The South West

Alternatively, explore the South West with one of our Arizona fly drive packages. Fly into Phoenix International Airport and start your stay in Scottsdale, Arizona and explore the wondrous Sonoran Desert. From there we can arrange an itinerary which also takes in Sedona, just 90 minutes drive north of Scottsdale. Then, just 2 hours further north and you can discover one of America’s greatest attractions, The Grand Canyon.

We can also add additional destinations to any trip using our extensive contacts, built up over many years in the business.
