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?

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.

Take a Vacation Even While Learning Virtually & Working Remote

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

Take a Vacation Even While Learning Virtually & Working Remote

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!
