It’s been a spring like no other, but fortunately things are looking up, with more businesses reopening each day.

It’s now officially peak season.  Our Isle of Palms luxury rentals are fully open.  Similarly, more and more local entities are opening their doors, including restaurants, shops, sites and activities.

The weather at the beach is gorgeous, with blue skies and warm but not hot temps.

The good folks at Hulafrog are a great resource of fun things to do, especially if you have children in the mix.

They’ve pulled together a helpful list of businesses reopening in the Lowcountry.  They offer ideas for a wholesome outing for your family while visiting the Charleston area.  Many are ways to get physical exercise safely, which is just the ticket after kids have been cooped up inside during the COVID quarantine.
