Sunny Side Up Day Trip

Rather just spend a day at the beach? Visit our Charleston Beaches page to determine where you want to set up camp and then come back here to get your checklist of essentials for a successful outing to the beach!

I'm not going to lie... I am a beach fanatic and there is no better way for me to have a nice day of R&R mixed with a little recreational fun than to head out to the "Edge of America." And while you may want to visit the beach as a quick "stop and look," the beach is a place you can completely plan an entire day. If you've gotten to this page, then I'm guessing you share my passion for the water and sun, so don't let me stop you from heading out for some fun in the sun! Read on and start packing!

I've not done a formal itinerary for a day at the beach... I'm hoping you don't need one! Just pick a beach and go enjoy!
