1. Plan a Beach Day 

The Isle of Palms is a quiet beach community to the East of downtown Charleston. Isle of Palms Beach spans six miles of pristine shoreline that’s perfect for sunbathing, surfing, or building a sandcastle. So, an afternoon trip to the beach is a must for your family getaway.  

Simply packing up the kids and bringing them to the beach is a daunting task. That’s why we recommend taking advantage of Isle of Palms equipment rental companies to make your beach day easier.  

For basic beach equipment, we recommend IOP Beach Chair Co. This rental company offers pick-up or delivery service, so you don’t have to worry about a thing! We also recommend Beach and Games to Go. This company rents beach games like cornhole, bocce ball, ping pong tables, and more!

Kids get restless on the sand? Don’t worry. There are plenty of other kid-friendly activities on Isle of Palms! Be sure to make memories that they won’t soon forget with Lowcountry activities like crabbingfishing, and more.
