Things to Do

When you think of a coastal vacation, your mind immediately goes to the beach. Right? Yes, our beaches are spectacular (all year ‘round). But the region offers other activities to keep you busy during your stay.  

Head to Freshfields Village, an outdoor shopping mall with 30 shops, diverse restaurants, spa services and entertainment. The Village Green hosts a seasonal farmers market, outdoor concerts, movies in the park, and more. 

There’s no wait for a tee time during the off-season. Tee off at the Wild Dunes Harbor Course, known for its challenging design and stunning views, or the Wild Dunes Links Course, which features coastal dunes, challenging straightaways, towering palm trees, and more. There are also practice facilities across from the Links Clubhouse, including a putting green, chipping area, and driving range. If you are staying on Kiawah Island, choose between five courses (or play 18 holes at each). From its Ocean Course, situated on the Atlantic, to the popular Osprey Point Course, each of Kiawah’s courses delivers a high-caliber golfing experience.

Get around on two wheels on both Kiawah and Seabrook islands with Alligator Bike Rentals, a trusted bike rental company serving the Charleston Coast for over 30 years. Alligator Bikes deliver the gear to your property, including a lock, handlebar pouches, baskets, and additional add-on items.

On Seabrook, mosey on over to the Seabrook Island Equestrian Center, which offers riding lessons, tours, and more. With roughly three miles of trails to access from the center appropriate for beginners to advanced riders, the Seabrook Equestrian Center is a family-friendly activity. There are even pony rides available for children up to 8 years old. Tours are a great way to explore the scenery of Seabrook Island beaches and coastal habitats. You can also get private instruction at the equestrian center from award-winning trainers.  

Unwind at the Spa at Sweetgrass at the Wild Dunes Resort, where you can enjoy a full menu of spa services. Relax with a deep tissue massage, island body scrub, or body wrap. The Spa provides a space to de-stress, restore physical and emotional balance, detoxify, and boost vitality and immunity. Hit up Urban Nirvana Spa at Freshfields Village when staying on Kiawah or Seabrook islands.

Of course, you can always stroll the beach as temps can hit the 60s and are far less crowded than peak season. Catch a sunrise or sunset on an empty beach, and enjoy some of the most magnificent views you’ll ever witness.
