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!
Are you and your family traveling the Charleston area this fall and are looking for something to do? Then look no further as you can take advantage of fishing right here on the Coast of South Carolina. Staying in one of our Carolina One Vacation Rentals will keep you and your family close to the action. We have come up with a guide on where you can go fishing together this fall in the Charleston area.
When you vacation on Edisto Island this fall, there are
several places that we can recommend. Not only is fishing during the fall
months fun, but it’s also relaxing too. Edisto Beach State Park will allow the
family to experience some saltwater fishing together and more. Admission into
the park is $8 per adult, $4 per child (ages 6-15), and free for kids five and
under. Another great location on the island is to head over to the Botany Bay
Plantation Heritage Preserve. This area is open, and we do recommend that you
bring plenty of sunscreens and bug spray with you. If you have younger kids
with you, then this may not be the place for you. There are also plenty of
charter boats to take advantage of as well that you don’t want to miss.
Folly Beach is an excellent location to not only vacation at but to go fishing too. Known to many as the “laid back” island is where you will find some great places. Head over to the Folly Beach Pier as you soak up the sun and catch the fish. Depending on the time of year that you go will depend on the price of parking. Daily fishing on the pier is $5 per adult, Kids 12 & under are $3, seniors (60 & up) are $3, and Active Military are $4. You can also rent a rod and bait for the full day of $10 plus a $25 deposit. Think of the fun you and your family can have while on vacation to Folly Beach and enjoy a little fishing too!
Isle of Palms
Just a short drive from Isle of Palms is the Mount Pleasant Pier that has the same pricing for daily fishing. Not only is there the pier but there are also shops close by to where you will be able to do a little shopping too. Another great option is doing a charter fishing trip. There are many in the area, and we can tell you that each one offers you a great time on the boat while you make new memories.
While there are many other fun locations in the Charleston area to fish at this fall with the family, we wanted to share these with you. If you haven’t booked your fall vacation to stay with us in one of our Carolina One Vacation Rentals, now is the time. We can’t wait to see you and your family as you enjoy the cooler weather and the great fish this fall!
Do you and your family have a vacation planned to stay in one of our Edisto vacation rentals this 4th of July? If you do, then we want to share with you what you can do while staying with us. While this 4th of July may be different than other years, there is still plenty to do in the area. Edisto is a great family-friendly destination that has many families wanting to vacation here more and more every year. Let’s look below at what you and your family can do while you are on vacation in Edisto.
Explore Fort Sumter
One of the things that are great about vacationing in the
Charleston area is the available fun things. You’re in luck because Fort Sumter has
officially opened to visitors, and they are open daily. While some of the park
sites inside the fort will be closed, your family will still be able to explore
the fort. Fort Sumter is approximately an hour from Edisto, but we promise that
this is an experience like no other.
Learn to Surf
Another fun activity that your family can do together this 4th of July is learning to surf. Edisto Beach surf lessons are available and are suitable for all ages. They do offer a weeklong class for your family or kids to enjoy. In these lessons, you will learn how to ride your first wave to learning how to stand up on the surfboard. Think of the new memories that your family will make while learning to surf together.
Do you have someone in the family who loves to collect shells? If you do, then why not schedule a Shelling Excursion with the family. On the day you do this excursion, you will be able to head over to Otter Island, which happens to be a family favorite. Please note that this fun adventure will take place only during low tide. Make sure to bring your own water (for drinking), towels, snacks, sunscreen, and bug spray. Also don’t forget to bring your phone, camera, and binoculars. What a fantastic way to spend the day with your family on this excursion!
While there are many other fun things your family can do this 4th of July, we wanted to share these. If you haven’t booked your next family vacation to stay in one of our Edisto vacation rentals, now is the time. We look forward to seeing your family as you celebrate the 4th of July in Edisto this year!
