Kick Off Christmas in the Isle of Palms
Heading to Isle of Palms at the beginning of December is a great way to kick off the month of festivities. The Holiday Street Festival starts the season off island-style, with its light-strung palm trees and location on Front Beach. This family-friendly event offers a visit from Santa Claus, live music, carnival rides, and craft vendors perfect for kick starting your Christmas shopping.
Make Sand Angels
Isle of Palms’ shining gem is its six miles of pristine white sand beaches. While the water will be too chilly for swimming at Christmas, the oceanfront provides a beautiful backdrop for quality family time and memorable photos. Build sand castles, make sand angels, and build a sandman! This is island living at its finest, even in winter.
View Charleston’s Magical Lights Displays
Head into downtown Charleston to view some of the best Christmas light displays. Celebrate Christmas Charleston-style with its annual Parade of Boats. Festively decorated boats meander down the Cooper River while thousands of spectators view the parade along the route from Mt. Pleasant to Charleston. For more spectacular lights, take the three-mile driving tour through James Island County Park, a display that has received accolades around the country. Shops and family-friendly activities make this more than a simple drive-through experience!
