3. Tennis and Golf in South Carolina
Some folks can't get their fill of tennis, some can't play enough golf, and some are split between the two. Luckily, one of the world's finest tennis havens (number three according to the authoritative Tennis Resorts Online) is also a golf mecca: Kiawah Island, South Carolina, which just happens to have a sandy beach on the Altantic Ocean. Call it a vacation trifecta.

Located less than an hour from the Charleston Airport, Kiawah Island Golf Resort has five golf courses, each designed by a different world-class architect. Former pro Roy Barth runs the two tennis facilities, which have plenty of Har-tru courts that are kind to aging legs. The resort provides instruction and partner matching, along with five-star/five-diamond lodging, restaurants, and spa.
