    Unless there's another Fort Mill, SC, this one's just over the state line south of Charlotte---and about 200 miles due west of the coast, so not many beaches to hand. Unless, of course, you're thinking of swimming in nearby Lake Wylie. However, probably not highly recommended because there's a nuclear power plant on its shores and the lake is quite developed with all the Charlotte sprawl. If you're looking for aquatic action in this corner of the Carolinas, better to head north of Charlotte to Lake Norman, a popular recreational spot that includes a 125-yard-long sand beach and swimming area.

    Just so happens that someone has done a lot of the research for you -- namely, the author Jamie Jensen and his excellent guidebook, "Road Trip USA." Call me a Luddite, but I have the fifth edition of this guide sitting on my desk and would pack this over any app for my next road trip (funnily enough, there's no app for this great road-tripping resource -- yet!). The book includes a 2,000-mile route from Massachusetts to Key West, Florida, and which keeps you on two-lane highways and away from tedious interstates like I-95. It'll take you down Maryland's Eastern Shore through pretty coastal area like Lewes and Cape Henlopen; down through the Outer Banks and onward to US-17 through South Carolina; finally, you'll end up on Florida's Hwy-A1A or US-1 as you route through or past Amelia Island, St. Augustine, and Cape Canaveral. Anyway, I can't do all there is to see and do justice here. Get a taste at the RoadTripUSA.com website (http://www.roadtripusa.com/routes/atlanticcoast/atlanticcoast.html), then buy yourself a hard copy on Amazon.com for the drive!
