The first day of summer is quickly approaching, and though we may have to modify some of our activities this summer, there are plenty of ways to enjoy all that the Lowcountry lifestyle has to offer during these warm and sunny months.
Visit the Beach. Whether you like to read, walk, sunbathe or swim, Charleston’s beaches are the perfect place to cool off on hot days. Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island and Folly Beach all have their own unique beach lifestyles to experience.
Plant a Colorful Garden. Charleston’s temperate climate is well suited for beautiful, colorful flowers and shrubs all year round. You can also incorporate fruits and vegetables for super fresh ingredients for your next family cook out. Explore Southern Living‘s guides to summer gardening here.
Have a Picnic at the Park. Downtown Charleston is home to many beautiful parks and green spaces, from Hampton Park in the Upper Peninsula to White Point Garden and Waterfront Park with Charleston Harbor views. Bring a blanket and a take-out meal from your favorite Charleston restaurant and enjoy a summer picnic.
Cool Off on the Water. From the open ocean to sparkling waterways and rivers, the Lowcountry has no shortage of places to explore via boat, kayak or paddleboard. If you don’t have your own, Charleston has many options for renting equipment for a fun day out on the water.
Explore Historic Charleston. From secret gardens to colorful windowboxes to stunning historic homes, historic Charleston neighborhoods never cease to impress. Take a stroll through South of Broad, Harleston Village, the French Quarter and more to enjoy downtown Charleston’s timeless beauty.
Create the Perfect Outdoor Living Space. Set up the ideal outdoor living space at home. If you like to unwind with a glass of wine on the porch at the end of the day, invest in a great set of patio furniture and outdoor lighting. If grilling out is your style, create an outdoor kitchen set up with space for your equipment and seating for an alfresco meal.
We hope you have a wonderful summer!
