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
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. If you haven’t booked your next getaway to stay with us at Carolina One Vacation Rentals, now is the time. We hope to see you and your family as you help us ring in the New Year here on the South Carolina Coast!
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
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
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!

Are you and your family vacationing in Charleston this summer and are looking for some free things to do? We at Carolina One Vacations can give you the scoop on what you can do for free in the area. When you stay in one of our Isle of Palms vacation rentals you will be close to some of the fun. Let’s look below at what three things your family can do for free while on vacation.
Visit the Charleston Tea Plant
Has your family ever been to a tea plant before? If not, then you are definitely in for a treat while on vacation to Charleston this summer. You can go to the only tea garden in North America and enjoy a free tour of the factory at Carolina Tea Plantation. Learning how the tea is made to having the opportunity to look at the whole process is something fun for every family. After you finish up the tour, you will be able to sample several different flavors of tea in their gift shop. What a great activity that your whole family will enjoy and learn a thing or two as well!
Another great location that your family can visit while you’re on vacation to Charleston is visiting Waterfront Park. Here you and the family will be able to see the pineapple fountain that may remind you of a particular cartoon character but more elegant. Swing on the pier while you are spotting dolphins in the water nearby. The views at this park are absolutely breathtaking and can be a great location to let the kids enjoy some fresh air. Be sure to bring a camera or your phone to capture the beauty of this park!
Visit the Angel Oak Tree
Charleston is known for having a lot of history, and the
Angel Oak is one you can’t miss. You and your family will be able to take a
drive to visit the 1500-year-old Angel Oak, which has been reported to be the
oldest living structure on the east coast. This tree is located on Johns Island
but is only a short drive away. Take pictures of the tree and marvel in all its
beauty and structure!
While there are many other things that your family can do for free in Charleston, these are the three we wanted to share with you. If you haven’t booked your summer vacation to spend it with us at Carolina One Vacations, now is the time. We look forward to seeing you and your family this summer, making new memories!
