Writer, editor, and past South Carolina resident Jim Morekis covers the best of the Palmetto State—from the shores of Myrtle Beach to the undeniable charm of Charleston. Morekis includes fun and unique trip ideas for a variety of travelers, including “Carolina for Kids,” “Romance in Charleston and the Lowcountry,” and “Marshes, Swamps, and White Water” in this helpful guide. Whether you’re looking for an extended vacation or a weekend getaway, Moon South Carolina gives travelers the tools they need to create a more personal and memorable experience.
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. As a young boy who loved history, Jim was fascinated with the home of the Swamp Fox and its key role in the Revolution and the Civil War. As he got older, he discovered a more important truth about the Palmetto State: Few places in America provide such a wealth of experience in such a small package.
Jim’s favorite pastimes in the Carolinas include relaxing on Edisto Island, climbing lighthouses on the Outer Banks, eating shrimp and grits in Charleston, playing miniature golf at Myrtle Beach, enjoying a cold brew in Columbia’s Five Points, camping along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and walking through old cemeteries. He is also learning to appreciate stock car racing just a little bit. In Jim’s other life, the University of Georgia graduate is editor in chief of a weekly newspaper in Savannah, GA.
