Any suggestions? I'm looking for something within a 3 hour drive of SW Charlotte, a place that has beachfront hotels but isn't tooooo touristy.

Are you looking to go soon or this winter if so besides Myrtle none of the beaches will be too touristy this time of year.
You may encounter limited activities open due to the off season but you can get great off season rates on hotels or beach homes if you can deal with the chilly ocean wind.

Thanks! I love the chilly ocean wind. ?Fall/winter is my favorite time to go to the Oregon coast, so I'm just wondering what NC/SC beaches are like at that time.

I really know absolutely nothing about NC/SC's coast. Got any place that looks like this?

Southport is about four hours away, but this time of year it'd be great because it's coastal, but not beachy. It's a charming town with old historic homes and buildings. You could take a day trip to Bald Head Island on the ferry, too.
