Wilmington, NC is very underrated. Great city, lots to see and do.

Agreed.. I always liked going there, the OBX, or even the Crystal Coast of NC during the winter.. No crowds and generally nice weather (albeit too cold to swim)

If during the winter, I would recommend Puerto Rico, which is technically part of the USA. During other times of the year, Melbourne or Daytona, FL for beaches, as march2 said, Charleston,SC and Savannah, GA for historic and well preserved southern cities, or New Orleans, LA for incredible food and nightlife.

I like the southern part of Georgia along the shore.

There is what the locals call "the Real Florida", between Tallahassee and Jacksonville.

For my wife and I, having visited 17 or 18 of the lower 48, the places we liked in the South, were Padre Island TX, Punta Gorda FL, and Naples FL, but the one city that knocked us both out, was Savannah GA.
We’ve had good times in Richmond VA, Atlanta GA, Memphis TN, and Tampa FL, but Savannah is out in front by a country mile.
Because she’s nuts about pandas, we take one of Delta’s big silver birds from London to Atlanta, go to Zoo Atlanta in Grant Park the following day, then the next morning, rent a car and have a leisurely drive along I.75 and I.16, stopping for lunch between Macon and Vidalia, then into Savannah across the bridge to our rented vacation house in one of the city’s squares.

Here is another vote for the area between Savannah and Jekyll Island. The "Golden Triangle" is a lovely area. There is so much to see and do. There are beautiful nature tours, great restaurants, nice people.

Savannah is a half hour from Tybee beach, and about an hour from Hilton Head. If it is too cold at the beach, Savannah will still have plenty of things to see and do. Furthermore, Savannah is just 2 hours from both Charleston and Jacksonville.

We enjoy Tybee beach and Hilton Head. Myrtle Beach is great during off-peak times. Wilmington and Coastal Carolina are beautiful!

Gulf Shores, AL or Hilton Head, SC if there are temperate temperatures to enjoy the beach. But the water will probably be too cold to dip into.
