It’s possible that every month is the best on Edisto Beach, but October is really amazing. If you’re down here this month, then you have got to experience what the island has to offer.
Take a look at this list of the best things to do on the island in October.
Fall Means Festivals
There are numerous festivals here on the island and in Charleston this time of year. For instance, this weekend (Oct. 8) there is the Art Guild Fall Show and Sale. This is located outdoors by the Edistonian General Store.
This is a great fall event that locals and visitors look forward to each year. It gives you the chance to purchase some local art made by talented lowcountry artists. Plus, it helps support the local art scene on the island.
Venture off into Charleston for a variety of fall and Halloween-themed festivals and events all throughout the month.
Go For a Ride
Take the bikes out for a ride all over the beach or in the woods of the state park. Take advantage of the cooler temperatures and experience the way the colors of the leaves and marsh change.
Not into riding a bike? Rent a golf cart and traverse the island in style. That way you can kick back and relax while feeling the wind blow through your hair.
Get the Boat Out
Fall boat trips are possibly the best. Sure, if it is splashy enough you could get a little chilly, but it’s well worth it.
This is the perfect time of year to take the boat out to Pine Island, drop the anchor and spend the day exploring. Just remember to pay attention to the tides and currents so you don’t find yourself marooned on the island.
Spend the Day at the Park
Even if you’re staying in a rental home, try booking a spot at the state park for a night. That way, you can build a fire and enjoy the amazing Edisto fall nights.
The stars are incredible this time of year, so you’ll want to take the time to head out after dark and gaze upwards.
Plus, this is the final time of the year when the sea turtle hatchlings make their way into the water, so if you’re outdoors on the beach long enough, you just might see them.
