Fun Activities to Enjoy this Fall

One of the best things about the fall is knowing that the family can head to the pumpkin patch to grab those pumpkins for later in the season. Head on over to Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch located at the Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant. This is a great place where the kids can pick out the pumpkin, they want to take home or want to carve to decorate your vacation rental. Boone Hall Plantation has other tours that your family can do while visiting sunch as their tractor tours, outside beauty areas on the property and amazing marsh views. This is a great way to explore the plantation and the area for fun fall things to do!

Spooky Tours

Another fun activity that you and your family can do is some ghost tours. While this may not be a suitable activity to do with the younger kids, the teens and young adults will get a thrill out of it. There are many different tours that are available in the area and will keep you on your toes for the night out. Some favorites for many locals would be the USS Yorktown Ghost Tour and Old Charleston Walking Tours. There is also a family friendly ghost tour that is good for all ages that is available in the area. Think of the new memories that you can make while you are on vacation here in the area.

Farm Fun

Take a Vacation Even While Learning Virtually & Working Remote

Do you and your family need a change of scenery this fall from life at home? If the answer is yes, then allow us to share with you why you need to take a vacation to the Charleston area this fall. This year has been quite a year for many and has made some new adjustments as well. Staying in one of our Charleston area vacation rentals will allow you and your family to enjoy your stay on the coast. Let’s look below at why you should take a vacation even while Learning and working remotely.

Learn Virtually While on Vacation

Take a Vacation Even While Learning Virtually & Working Remote

This year learning for many students will be different compared to previous years. Instead of heading back to school in the classroom, they will be learning from home virtually. Because of this change, that only means that you and your family can take a vacation while your kids are still in school. You will find that each one of our homes comes equipped with complimentary WIFI for you to enjoy. So instead of learning from home, come to the beach and learn all while enjoying your vacation to the Charleston area.

Work from the Beach

Another thing that has changed for many parents is working from home instead of the office. While many still had to go into the office because they were essential workers, many will remain home until 2021. This can be a wonderful thing because now you and your family can still take a vacation to the coast. Instead of sitting at home, hearing the kids fight about who has the remote, you can be enjoying your time at the beach. Work from the living room or deck of your vacation rental. Take a long lunch break and enjoy time with the family on the beach. No matter what working while on vacation is better than any day at home.

While there are so many other things that are exciting about the kids learning virtually and you work from home, these we wanted to share with you. If you haven’t booked your next vacation to stay with us in one of our Charleston area vacation rentals, now is the time. We can’t wait to see you and your family as you relax this fall on the South Carolina Coast!
