Summer days are slipping away, but there’s still time to take a beach vacation. The last official holiday of summer, Labor Day (Sept. 4), makes the perfect chance. 

Something fun always happens on the coast in the summer, and Labor Day is no exception. The list of activities is long. Go creek fishing or crabbing. Get up early to stroll the sand, searching for seashells. Sip a cocktail while staring at the Atlantic Ocean.  

Fire up the grill at your rental property for burgers or barbecues (or both). Take a plunge into the ocean. Watch the sunset from your oceanfront balcony or deck. Ride a horse along the beach at the Seabrook Island Equestrian Center. Horseback tours make a great way to explore the beach and local trails. 

Enjoy sweet crepes and waffles at Savers Du Monde Cafe near the Seabrook Island main gate. This bistro boasts delicious French cuisine made with authentic recipes and fresh ingredients. Reserve a table at The Atlantic Room, Kiawah Island’s signature restaurant. Located at the Ocean Course, The Atlantic Room emphasizes fresh regional catches procured from local fishermen and complemented by an extensive wine list.

On Isle of Palms, dine on homemade pasta and Italian dishes with an ocean view at Coda Del Pesce. The menu options change daily but feature local seafood prepared creatively. 

Kiawah Island guests can discover their inner Van Gogh and participate in the Sidewalk Chalk Contest from 2-3 p.m. on Sept. 4 at Night Heron Park. Families can team up and have one hour to create a masterpiece. The event is free, and chalk is provided. 

Come out for a free concert with the Labor Day Weekend Music on the Green from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 1, at Freshfields Village. Bring a blanket or chair and enjoy this family-friendly concert featuring Diverse Groove. The group performs Top 40, beach music, Motown, R&B, dance, rock, and reggae. 

There are many reasons to return to the beach before the summer ends. Book a stay and enjoy another sunny getaway before life gets busy.
