Best SE Dive Vacation Spot to take 13 year old new diver?

Hi all! My name is Evelyn & I am new here.
My 13-year-old daughter is going to be getting OW certified this spring and I want to take her to a vacation spot this June where I can take her on a relatively easy (salt water) shore dive or 2.
We live in NW South Carolina and I would like to stay in one of the following areas:
Wilmington, NC (or close - outer banks adds 2 hours to the trip)
Myrtle Beach or Charleston area of SC
Savannah, Georgia
Panhandle of Florida
All of those are within a 7-hour drive for us which is about as far as I want to drive.
I am having a really hard time finding places.

I certified in Seattle years ago and I used to have a book that had all the shore dives of interest in one handy location. Maybe there is a book for these areas that someone can recommend as well?

Any Suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
Evelyn

I’m in Navarre, FL several good shore dives (Navarre Beach, Fort Pickens my favorites). I gave up cold water but by June should high 70s which I would do. Many other things in this area to for surface enjoyment. Message me if need a buddy in June.
