Do you have a vacation planned to stay at the beach here on the Charleston Coast? If the answer is yes, let us share a few essentials you’ll need. Staying in one of our Folly Beach vacation rentals will keep you and your family close to the fun. See below for the essentials you’ll need to complete the perfect day at the beach!
Sunscreen – This is important to always have with you anytime you’re on vacation at the beach. We always recommend that you wear at least 30-SPF and that it’s water resistant. Reapplying throughout the day helps keep your skin in a burn-free zone.
Beach Umbrella – A beach umbrella is vital when you are at the beach to allow you and your family shade. Having the kids keep out of the sun at times of the day can be an excellent thing for them. Plus, it can also keep your drinks out of the sun from getting too hot too quickly.
Reusable Water Bottle – Having a reusable water bottle for everyone in the family can keep your drinks cold all day. If you have an oceanfront vacation rental, you can go back in and refill as often as you’d like.
Beach Chairs – Bring a beach chair per person in the family can allow you all to sit and relax. No need to sit in the sand as you each lunch, enjoy some sun, or just a way to relax by the waves.
Beach Towel – Just like a beach chair, having a beach towel to dry off after you take the kids into the waves to play. Let the kids pick out their towels and place them on their beach chairs.
First-Aid Kit – A first-aid kit is an excellent addition to your beach essentials as you never know if you’ll need it.
Beach Wagon – This is not essential, but it can help bring things down to the beach. Load it up with the beach chairs, essentials – you’ve done all the hard work easy peasy.
Many other things can be considered essential to your beach day, but we wanted to share these. If you haven’t booked your next vacation to stay in one of our Carolina One vacation rentals, now is the time. We can’t wait to hear what you packed as an essential for your perfect beach day!
It’s hard to believe that schools are out, and summer is upon us here on the South Carolina Coast. Summer is a great time in the Charleston area as there are so many different activities that you don’t want to miss. Staying with us at Carolina One vacation rentals will allow you and your family to be close to the fun. Let’s look below at our three activities you don’t want to miss this summer in the area.
Morris Island Boat Tour
The whole family can connect this summer by trying out the Morris Island Boat Tour. Morris Island is full of undeveloped land that is a gem to explore. The only way to get to the island is by boat. Taking a tour will allow you and the family to soak up 3 hours of exploring the island, looking at wildlife, and checking out new shells. We can promise you that you’ll never experience another island like this one again!
Charleston Riverdogs Baseball Game
Another fun activity that the whole family can enjoy this summer is going to at least one Charleston Riverdogs Baseball game. Fun for all ages, let the kids learn the “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” song, get those delicious hotdogs, and have a good time together. If you have little ones who are big ball players, check out the camps they offer at the stadium. Think of the new memories you’ll make as you watch a ballgame or two.
Explore the SC Aquarium
If you have little ones who aren’t into the above activities, head on to the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston. Here the family will enjoy the many different exhibits that they have to offer. There is an exhibit for everyone from seeing the Carolina Seas, The Shallows, the Touch Tank, and even the Coastal Plains area. Even Kids Coast has different activities on how the water filtration happens at the aquarium. This would also be a great activity to check out on a rainy day.
There are many other fun activities that you can pick from in the area, but we wanted to share these. If you haven’t booked your next trip to stay with us at Carolina One vacation rentals, now is the time. We can’t wait to hear how you enjoyed your summer vacation here on the South Carolina Coast!
