Staying in one of our Carolina One vacation rentals will keep you and your family close to the fun. Let’s look below at a few of the things you can do while here in the Charleston area this fall.

Isle of Palms

One of the benefits of staying in one of our Isle of Palms vacation rentals is getting to explore the things around the area. Nothing screams fall more than heading to a local pumpkin patch on your next vacation. Head on over to the Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch over in Mt. Pleasant. They will be open from October 1st to October 31st, 2021. Not only will they have a great patch that you can choose the best pumpkin from, but they have a little more too. One of the things you can do here is their certified corn maze which is an 8-acre maze. They also have a family-friendly monster hayride, a petting zoo, and more. Be sure to get your admission tickets to enjoy all the fun at the Boone Hill Pumpkin Patch.

Folly Beach

Folly Beach during the fall months is a great time to enjoy the island. Not only will you and your family get to enjoy some great weather, but you can enjoy spending the weekend at Legare Farm. They are located on nearby Johns Island and open up beginning October 1st until October 31st, 2021. While it’s free admission to get into their pumpkin patch for free, you will have to purchase some of the activities. Some of the extra activities you may pay for are a hayride, pumpkin picking, horse rides, scarecrow factory, a gem mine, or a corn cannon. Think of the fun you’ll have to make new memories while exploring this fun pumpkin patch near Folly Beach!

Edisto Beach

Edisto Beach may not have any pumpkin patches nearby, but it does offer many to come and enjoy a few fun things. October is filled with fun as the temperatures are becoming cooler which means fall festivals are here. On October 16th, from 11 am to 4 pm, Edisto Beach is hosting its very own fall festival. There will be plenty of vendors, but there will be arts & crafts to purchase and activities for the kids to do. If you’re in town around on October 27th, head on over to Bay Creek Park next to the marina to allow the kids to trick or treat from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Who will have the best costume in your family this year?

While there are many other fun activities that you can do this fall here on the Coast of South Carolina, we wanted to share these with you. If you’re still looking for a fun fall vacation staying in one of our Carolina One vacation rentals, then give us a call today. We can’t wait to see you and hear all about your fun adventures in the area.

Then spend the day watching the kids play nearby as you relax in your chair.

Visit the South Carolina Coast!

Can you believe that we were all unsure about the virus just a year ago and how it could stop those from traveling over the summer months? Yes, it’s still unbelievable that many of us have learned to work from home or our kids learning from home. But since the vaccines have rolled out at the beginning of the year and more restrictions are going away, people are ready to travel. “Vaxications” is the new term coined by USA Today that refers to the vaccinated vacationer that has received their vaccine and is ready to hit the beach and start traveling again! At Carolina One Vacation Rentals, we want to assure all of our loyal patrons that although the vaccines have rolled out, our cleaning standards will remain high and stay in accordance with CDC Guidelines.  We have seen an increase in the number of families ready to hit the beach this summer and are thrilled to have visitors enjoying our beautiful coast again. 

Book Your Next Vacation Today before They’re all gone! 

Vacation rentals are booking up quickly for the rest of the year, as many people are ready to get back to making lifelong memories with their family & friends at the beach. 

Spending a Summer in Folly Beach or Edisto Beach is always a treat, but what about the Fall? The Fall months bring cooler evenings to beat the heat during the days, filled with sun, sand, and surf. There are plenty of things that everyone in the family can enjoy as far as dining options, things going on around town, and of course, fishing! Whether you’re visiting Wild Dunes or vacationing to Isle of Palms, we know your visit to the Charleston Coast will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the long days ahead.

One of the benefits of booking with us is that you will get the best price guarantee. Another benefit is knowing that you can bring the whole family, and yes, that includes the dog, too, as we have pet-friendly vacation rentals. We hope to see you and your family this year as you travel to get here safely!

Plan Your Labor Day Vacation to the Charleston Area Today

Labor Day weekend seems like it’s a long time away, but it will be here before we all know it. Now is the perfect time to start planning for your Labor Day vacation with the family to kick off the end of the summer together. Staying in one of our Carolina One vacation rentals will allow you and your family to stay close to the fun. Let’s look below why you should plan your vacation to the Charleston area for Labor Day weekend today.

Spend the Day on the Sand

One of the best things about spending your Labor Day vacation is being able to take advantage of the low crowds on the beaches. This year let the kids build enormous sandcastles and let the teens play catch the frisbee. There is something for everyone to do and enjoy a day at the beach. Don’t forget to bring the essentials with you on the beach, such as a beach umbrella, towels, sunscreen, a book to read, and the toys for the kids. Relaxing and spending time together is just what every beach vacation should be about.

Try a New Restaurant

Vacations are the best when it comes to not feeling like cooking for the family in your vacation rental. This year take the family out to a new restaurant that may have just opened or just trying one you’ve never eaten at before. If your family likes seafood, then give The Kingstide a try on Daniel Island. They have a classic raw bar that includes oysters and stone crab claws, and they offer the classics such as lobster rolls and even a steak. Many new restaurants are opening up this summer and fall that you will try maybe a few on your vacation.

While there are many other fun things that you can do this Labor Day this year, we wanted to share these few with you. If you haven’t booked your Labor Day vacation yet, now is the time. We don’t want you and your family to miss out on a great vacation to end the summer and begin a great school year!

Just think of how fantastic this opportunity will be to enjoy watching a few rounds of golf from the pros.

Where to Stay

Vacation to the Charleston Area & Attend the PGA Championships

Ring in the New Year in the Charleston Area

It’s hard to believe that 2020 is almost over, and it will soon be time to ring in 2021 with the family. Vacationing to the Charleston area is just what your family needs after the crazy year we have all had. Spending New Year’s with us at Carolina One Vacation Rentals will allow your family to be close to the fun. Let’s look below at a few things that are happening this New Year’s Eve for your family to celebrate while on vacation.

The Flip Flop Drop

This year’s annual Flip Flop Drop-in Folly Beach will look a little different compared to previous years. Instead of heading down to Center Street, where it has been held for many years, you and your family will be able to watch it virtually from your vacation rental. Cook up some delicious steaks or seafood at your vacation rental, make up some charcuterie boards and enjoy a few glasses of wine while you sit and wait for the Flip Flop to drop. Once the clock strikes midnight, then it will be time to watch them fall from the firetruck as it has for many years!

2021 New Year’s Virtual 5K

Ring in the New Year in the Charleston Area

We know that 2020 seemed to bring out the best in ourselves, and we may have all started our New Year’s resolutions a little later in the year. Instead of waiting until later in the year, start 2021 out on a good note with a New Year’s Virtual 5K Run/Walk. Be sure to register today to get your packets in time for your fun run, and have a blast doing so. There is also a free option if you don’t want the fun swag that goes along with the run, which can be a good option for families. Head down to the beach and walk along with it, looking for shells as you get in your 3.1 miles together. Just enjoy your day with the family and start 2021 out on a good note this year.

While many things are happening this New Year’s here in the Charleston area, we wanted to share these with you.
