Re: Tyler, South Carolina........

After 36 years as a South Carolinian, I'll bite...where the heck is Tyler? Not on my maps! Um, where is it near?

who is not going to even respond to brewer! Once went to a wedding in Conway, SC and the church was next to a "Snatch and Go" store, which we theorized was some sort of fast food type bordello....

Re: Tyler, South Carolina........

Smoky mountains are ~3-4 hrs away. The beach is a lot closer. Otherwise, probably not much to do. Columbia, SC, Florence, SC, Fayetteville Nc and Raleigh NC are easily a day trip away.

What do you like doing? Outdoorsy? There's the Little Pee Dee State Park . Seriously.

Re: Tyler, South Carolina........

Well, I live in Raleigh about 2 hours north, but around April it's usually rather moderate - perfect golf weather. Highs in the 60's, low 70's. Myrtle beach SC is huge on golf. Pinehurst is about 1-1.5 hours north in NC. There's tons of golf courses up and down the coast of NC and SC.

Forgot to mention you'll be within daytrip distance of Wilmington NC and Charlotte NC.
