Enjoy these 4th of July Activities near Charleston

It’s hard to believe that the 4th of July will be here before you know it, and we have all the details on where your family can enjoy the festivities. If you happen to be staying in one of our Carolina One vacation rentals this 4th of July, then you’ll be close to the fun. Let’s look below where your family can head to check out the fireworks and other things happening in the area.

Fireworks Galore

This year we are all so excited that the fireworks are back for the 4th of July celebration. Head on over to Riverfront Park, beginning at 7:00 pm for the excitement. Not only are the fireworks happening, but there will also be plenty of food options to choose from too. Bring your beach chairs, blankets, snacks & water so you can sit back and wait for the show. Admission is free to this fun event.

Stars & Guitars

It seems that many things are getting back to normal, including the Stars & Guitars event on July 2, 2021. This event is taking place at Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens, beginning at 5:30 pm. Stars & Guitars did not happen last year due to COVID-19, but we are excited they are back this year. This is a summer tradition that many love to attend as they listen to country music and they can dance the night away. We suggest that you purchase your tickets now before the show to be sure to attend.

Beach It

Another thing that your family can do this 4th of July is spending the day at the beach. If you are staying in one of our Oceanfront vacation rentals, then you can go pick out your spot on the beach in the morning. Be sure to pack the cooler full of ice, water, drinks, and snack for the kids. Set up the beach chairs, umbrella, beach blanket, and toys. Then spend the day watching the kids play nearby as you relax in your chair.

While many other fun things you can do in the Charleston area, we wanted to share these with you. If you’re thinking about booking a trip with us in one of our Carolina One vacation rentals this fall, give us a call. We hope that you and your family have a fun and safe 4th of July 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.

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!

The Kids Coast is a great hands-on learning experience that will allow your kids to learn about water filtration and participate in different activities with others. There is also a Saltmarsh Aviary where you’ll be able to step outside and check out the Charleston Harbor, where you’ll see pelicans and more.

Ring in the New Year in the Charleston Area

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.

Make New Memories this Holiday Season at the Beach

Make New Memories this Holiday Season at the Beach

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are here, and pretty soon, it will be time to celebrate the new year. This year instead of spending the holidays at home, spend them at the beach. One of the best things you can do is surprise your family with a vacation to stay in one of our South Carolina vacation rentals. Let’s look below at some fun things that your family can do while on vacation this holiday season.

Bake Sweet Treats

Make New Memories this Holiday Season at the Beach

As you are staying in one of our vacation rentals this holiday season, your family can bake some pretty sweet treats in your kitchen. Each of our vacation rentals comes with a full-sized kitchen that your family will feel like you’re still at home but on the beach.  Bake up some snickerdoodles, peanut butter chocolate cake, or make peppermint bark with the kids. Let the kids decorate their own gingerbread houses that you make while on vacation and let them eat them afterward. Think of the new memories that your family can meanwhile you bake and enjoy these tasty treats.

Watch Holiday Movies

Another fun thing that your family can do is watch holiday movies this year while on vacation. When you stay in one of our vacation rentals, you will have high-speed internet so you can stream the film. Some of the classic movies that your family can watch are White Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, or even Elf. Be sure to make some tasty popcorn or snack on some of the delicious treats you have made while on vacation. No matter what movie you watch, just spend as much time on vacation together as a family.

Spend the Day at the Beach

Make New Memories this Holiday Season at the Beach

Since you will already be on the South Carolina coast, then head to the beach for a day or two. In between baking and watching movies, relax on the beach as a family. Some of the fun things that the kids can do are have a sandman building contest, build sandcastles like the kids were building gingerbread houses, or sit and relax in the sun. Even though you will be coming during the holiday season, be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen with you. The sun is just as bright as it during the summer months.

While there are many other fun things you can do this holiday season here on the South Carolina coast, we wanted to share these with you. IF you haven’t booked your next vacation to stay with us in one of our South Carolina vacation rentals, now is the time. We hope to see you and your family as you experience the holidays at the beach this year!
