8 things to do with kids in Edisto Island, SC

Edisto Island, SC, about an hour south of Charleston, is the perfect place to get away if you're looking for a low-key, family focused vacation.  It's a lazy little beach town where you can rent a house and enjoy the salt air.  And, there are plenty of ways to keep little ones entertained.

1. Beach time, of course!

The beach on the west side of the island (between Louise and Ebbtide streets) offers the most sand even at low tide.  It's also a great spot if you want to capture some sunset pictures.

Worth going to... once. :)  The kids, even the little ones enjoyed it.  Most of the animals are outside so choose a day when the weather is nice.

3. Look for deer

There are deer all over the island.  We saw them roaming in between beach houses around sunset every night.

4. Rent a golf cart

As far as our three year old was concerned, we didn't even need to rent a house.  He could have spent the entire trip going to and fro on the golf cart.  We rented ours for the entire week through Palmetto Cart Rental.  They were friendly, reasonably priced, and dropped the golf cart off at our beach house before we arrived.


5. Go crabbing by boat

If you don't have a crap pot and want to invest, you can get one at the True Value on the island.  Also, be sure to check out the crabbing regulations through DNR.  You do need a salt water fishing license.

6. Go crabbing without a boat

There are several pools of water around the island, just drive around in the golf cart.

7. Make a lowcountry boil.  (check out my past post for a great recipe)

Free to visit but closed on Tuesdays.  There is a nice little nature walk so it's a fun way to spend and afternoon and there are several photo worthy views.
