Charleston's Beaches - Labor Day Weekend

Choose form one of three beaches and just relax!  Our favorite, Folly Beach, is just 15 minutes from downtown Charleston.  Sullivan's Island and Isle Of Palms are 20 and 30 minutes form downtown, but it never feels that far!  And lastly, Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island are more private.  Check ahead or book a place for Labor Day Weekend, and get to enjoy all the amenities which coincide!
