Jim Morekis grew up just a stone’s throw from South Carolina—in Savannah, Georgia—and he’s used to Charlestonians regarding his hometown as a wayward little sibling. He has traveled up and down the Carolinas and continues to find new spots and things to do on this historic and hospitable stretch of coast.

Jim’s favorite Carolina pastimes include relaxing on Edisto Island, climbing lighthouses on the Outer Banks, eating shrimp and grits in Charleston, playing miniature golf at Myrtle Beach, and walking through old cemeteries. Jim works as a journalist and travel writer, and in his spare time enjoys going shopping with his wife Sonja and daughters Sophia and Alex on Charleston’s King Street.
