Summer is just around the corner!!!!!

In just a few short weeks full blown summer will be upon us. School will be out and a more relaxed atmosphere takes hold of Charleston. It’s the time of year that a business man can be seen wearing shorts on Broad Street and people leave the office a little early on Friday! It’s why we live in this little slice of heaven known as the Low Country.

Yes summer brings the heat and humidity, but it also brings the boat and the beach which are two of my favorite things. There are plenty of other great activities this summer for the entire family. Let’s look at a few that are in the sand or on the water.

The Party at the Park is most Friday nights at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina in Mt. Pleasant. It’s a family friendly event with great music and atmosphere.

Just down the street every Tuesday in June is the WEZL Party In The Parks at the Mt. Pleasant Waterfront Park. This is also a family friendly event with great music and fun for the entire family.

All the Charleston County water parks are a must do for families. There is Whirlin Waters in North Charleston, which I hear has a new water slide, Splash Zone on James Island, and Splash Island in Mt. Pleasant. All great family fun!

Of course this is just a small sampling of the great things to do this summer. All that is really important is that you get out there and enjoy this wonderful time of year. Before you know, fall will be upon us and that opens the door to a new list of great things to do in this wonderful area we call home. Have fun!
