    I think your best bet is a trip to Sumter National Forest in the hilly northwest corner of the state. Here is a link to an article on GORP.com, with info on things to do: http://gorp.away.com/gorp/resource/us_national_forest/sc/sc_sumt_2.htm. There are also several large lakes near here, including Lake Keowee, Lake Jocassee, and Hartwell Lake, just off I-85. You might also consider the cabins at Oconee State Park or Table Rock State Park, near Spartanburg (visit http://www.southcarolinaparks.com/park-finder/park_locator.aspx for more info on SC state parks).

    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!
