Another year, another Christmas trip. This has become quite the tradition, and this year, we headed down to Murrells Inlet on the Carolina coast—the Seafood Capital of South Carolina. Hopefully Santa got our change of address!
Sadly, it was time for the final campground stop of the trip (insert crying face). It was such a fabulous journey thus far, and we were excited for our final stop at Lake Hartwell Sate Park.

This year, we decided to do Christmas on the coast in lovely Edisto Beach State Park, South Carolina!
It's here!! Our biggest trip of the year! Christmas was a little hard to plan family visits due to COVID (still), so we decided to keep it simple and safe by roaming to some new state parks for two weeks! If you're one of our 3 readers, you probably remember that last year we went across the country and hit Texas. We had so much fun camping for the holiday season, it only made sense to do it again.
We finally made it to Texas, just in time for Christmas. Hopefully Santa knows where to find us...
Basically, the entire point of this trip was to hit states that we've never been to. Oh, and also to have fun. Originally, we were trying to get out west to Colorado and Utah, but time didn't really permit us going that far. Instead, we settled for Arkansas as our only new state of the trip. We chose Hot Springs National Park as our destination because it sounded so cool!
After an exciting trip to Nashville, we were off to Memphis.
The first stop on our big-time Christmas vacation was Music City: Nashville, Tennessee.
Working at the Speedway does come with some perks: free entry to races, loud rumbles all day every day, and a massive paid Christmas vacation. This year, we decided to take all the vacation time and do an extra long camping trip. Westward ho! It's off to Texas!
