When & Where

You might be a little intrigued by this fun race in Charleston, especially if you’re an avid runner. This race is on Saturday, September 25th, beginning at 8:00 am on Coleman Blvd in Mt. Pleasant. They will be shutting down the streets to run safely on the roads in the morning. Getting to the race is easy peasy as there will be shuttles to get you to the start line. As long as you’re wearing your bib, you can get onto one of the free shuttles.

10K Run

If you’re looking to register for the race, but you’re unsure of how long it is, then look no further. The Bridge Run will be a 10K, which is 6.2 miles, which many of us may walk daily. Another thing that you don’t want to miss is the Expo that will be on September 23rd  & September 24th at the Charleston Area Convention Center. Here you’ll not only be able to pick up your race packet, but you’ll also be able to do a little shopping too. Please note that you will not be able to pick up your race packet on the day of the race. This is done for your safety.

While many other fun things are happening in the Charleston area in September, we had to share this fun info on the run. Now is the time if you still haven’t booked your stay in one of our Charleston vacation rentals. We can’t wait to see you before and after the race.

Plan Your Labor Day Vacation to the Charleston Area Today

Labor Day weekend seems like it’s a long time away, but it will be here before we all know it. Now is the perfect time to start planning for your Labor Day vacation with the family to kick off the end of the summer together. Staying in one of our Carolina One vacation rentals will allow you and your family to stay close to the fun. Let’s look below why you should plan your vacation to the Charleston area for Labor Day weekend today.

Spend the Day on the Sand

One of the best things about spending your Labor Day vacation is being able to take advantage of the low crowds on the beaches. This year let the kids build enormous sandcastles and let the teens play catch the frisbee. There is something for everyone to do and enjoy a day at the beach. Don’t forget to bring the essentials with you on the beach, such as a beach umbrella, towels, sunscreen, a book to read, and the toys for the kids. Relaxing and spending time together is just what every beach vacation should be about.

Try a New Restaurant

Vacations are the best when it comes to not feeling like cooking for the family in your vacation rental. This year take the family out to a new restaurant that may have just opened or just trying one you’ve never eaten at before. If your family likes seafood, then give The Kingstide a try on Daniel Island. They have a classic raw bar that includes oysters and stone crab claws, and they offer the classics such as lobster rolls and even a steak. Many new restaurants are opening up this summer and fall that you will try maybe a few on your vacation.

While there are many other fun things that you can do this Labor Day this year, we wanted to share these few with you. If you haven’t booked your Labor Day vacation yet, now is the time. We don’t want you and your family to miss out on a great vacation to end the summer and begin a great school year!
