Of course, one of the main draws to come to one of our SC vacation rentals, be it a luxury house on Isle of Palms or a Folly Beach house Charleston, is the ocean.  A large number of our luxury beach house rentals SC are oceanfront or practically so.

And this weekend, if you’re here in a Charleston beach house, there are a couple events going on that you might want to check out.

As I mentioned in an earlier BLOG, shagging is a Carolina favorite pastime, and the Shaggin’ on the Cooper series at Waterfront Park in Mount Pleasant is a wildly popular and fun summer event.  It’s particularly convenient to our Isle of Palms vacation rentals since it’s east of the Cooper.

Well, Friday is a similar event, also sponsored by the good people at Charleston County Parks & Rec, this one taking place west of the Ashley.  It’s on Folly Beach in fact, and is very convenient to Folly Beach rentals Charleston.  It’s Moonlight Mixers, and it’s going on this coming Friday evening, July 22nd   –  as well as August 19th and September 16th  –  on the Folly Beach Pier.

MOONLIGHT MIXER highlights include:

  • Shagging under the stars on the scenic Folly Beach Edwin S. Taylor Fishing Pier;
  • Music by DJ Jim Bowers, spinning beach music and other classics;
  • Food, snacks & beverages will be available for purchase (please don’t bring outside coolers or alcohol);
  • Gates open and music starts at 7:00 p.m. and the event goes till 11:00 p.m.;
  • Rain date is the following night (Saturday);
  • Tickets are just $10 each, in advance or at the gate.

Here’s a link to the parks’ website with all the info:  https://ccprc.com/1618/Moonlight-Mixers

The Folly Pier really is a lovely spot.  It stretches 1,045 feet out over the Atlantic Ocean, is 25 feet wide, 23 feet above sea level (literally!), and is the second longest such pier on the entire East Coast.  Even if you can’t make the mixer, it’s worth a visit.  It’s also a great place to fish (they have rod rentals and a tackle shop), dine (at Locklear’s Beach City Grill), or swim (they have beach access and showers).

And another fun event near our SC vacation rentals on the IOP…

This coming Sunday, July 24th, is another fun event  –  this one is particularly convenient to our Isle of Palms luxury rentals.  In fact, you don’t even have to leave the island.

It’s the fourth annual Brews & Chews Island Beer Festival and Pool Party, and it takes place from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. at Palmetto Hall in Wild Dunes.

There will be live music and plenty of vittles and libations.  Local, regional and national craft brews will be tastefully paired with cuisine at numerous tasting stations.  Tickets range from $40 for adults, $25 for young adults (age 13–20) and $15 for kids (4-12).  Go to http://www.wilddunes.com/charleston-resort-activities.php or call (843) 886-2218 for tickets and info.  It’s a short drive from our SC vacation rentals.

So mix it up on the pier, enjoy a “sudsy” pool party… and remember to contact Exclusive Properties when you are looking for the very best in rental homes South Carolina, namely beach house rentals Charleston SC.  We’ll put you in the best.


All best,
