Top 5 Things to Do for Labor Day Weekend on Isle of Palms
1. Visit the Beach
No vacation to the South Carolina coast would be complete without a trip to the beach. When you stay on the island, be sure to visit Isle of Palms Beach. Our beach is quieter than others in the Charleston area, but does see larger crowds during holiday weekends. We recommend getting to the beach early during Labor Day weekend to stake out the perfect spot in the sand!
2. Dine on the Water
The end of summer is a great time for outdoor dining on Isle of Palms. During this time of year, temperatures are usually in the low 80s. Pair that with a sea breeze and you’ve got the perfect conditions for outdoor dining! Be sure to visit The Boathouse at Breach Inlet, a waterfront restaurant specializing in local seafood and classic Lowcountry cuisine.
3. Golf at Wild Dunes Resort
Did you know that one of the best golf courses in the state is right here on Isle of Palms? Considered among the “Best in the State” by Golf Digest, Wild Dunes Resort is a premier golfing destination.
