From the Inside Flap

The Coastal Region of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia feature some of our nation's greatest natural treasures: an abundance of superb beaches, barrier islands, estuaries and lagoons, bays and sounds, marshes and forests, rivers and streams. Here are such pristine natural sites as the Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge, Cape Lookout National Seashore, Francis Marion National Forest, Cumberland Island National Seashore, and Hunting Island State Park.

The region's wealth of cultural and historic attractions range from Revolutionary War battlefields and Civil War-era forts to magnificent gardens and plantation homes to thousands of historic buildings in Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia.

A valuable reference for visitors and locals alike, Adventuring Along the Southeast Coast features:

An overview of the region's natural history and political history, from pre-Columbian through Colonial times to the present day

A wide variety of outdoor recreational opportunities: boating, canoeing, fishing, diving, hunting, biking, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, camping, and horseback riding

Tips on where to find campgrounds, boat ramps and marinas, local events and festivals, museums and historic sites, historic hotels and inns, resorts and sight-seeing tours, bike paths and golf courses, and much more

A comprehensive bibliography, and appendices that detail climate, list flora and fauna, and provide addresses and phone numbers for accommodations, tourist agencies, and conservation organizations
