    Big things on Sullivan’s Island

    It’s easy to dismiss Sullivan’s Island based on its size—this quaint hamlet at the mouth of Charleston Harbor has a total area of only 3.3 square miles. Still, this picturesque holiday haven must hold the record for most fun per square inch, because few can rival its jam-packed social calendar and myriad natural attractions. From the golden sand of its protected beaches to its array of historic structures, this island has many surprises in store for guests that nab a Sullivan’s Island vacation rental, proving that big things come in small packages.

    Sullivan’s Island celebrations

    The locals on Sullivan’s Island love nothing more than big festivities, so visitors can expect year-round activities to keep the whole family entertained. The Polar Bear Plunge sees hundreds of islanders rushing into the chilly ocean to celebrate New Year’s Day, while the Tree Lighting ceremony in early December brings families together in the festive season. Bring a blanket to Town Park for the annual 4th of July fireworks display, or feel patriotic on Carolina Day, which celebrates the seminal battle that was fought against the British on Sullivan’s Island on June 28th 1776.

    Sullivan’s Island holds down the fort

    Fort Moultrie is one of the oldest still-standing forts along the eastern seaboard, and holds a particular importance in South Carolina’s history. During the Revolutionary War, the structure fended off an attack by the British, with witnesses reporting that the local palmetto logs repelled cannonball fire before construction was even complete. During the Civil War, the fort went on to become a Confederate stronghold. Today, the National Park Service operates guided tours of the original fortification, while self-guided tours of the visitor’s center are also available.

    Shifting seasons on Sullivan’s Island

    The summer months on Sullivan’s Island see temperatures soar to the low 90s, making it the ideal time to snap up beachfront Sullivan’s Island vacation rentals. These months also see more frequent rainfall, normally in the form of passing showers, so be sure to pack your raincoat. Still, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to hit the beach or get out and about. Your best chance of finding Sullivan’s Island vacation rentals is during the off-season winter months, when temperatures are lower but precipitation is rare. You won’t have to stand in line at top attractions and you can explore the area without the crowds.

    Take a stroll around Sullivan’s Island

    With its enviable location along the Atlantic Ocean, Sullivan’s Island boasts some of the most beautiful coastal viewpoints that South Carolina has to offer. The island has invested in 650 feet of boardwalks and observation decks to facilitate strolls along the shore, while benches provide stopping points at which you can unwind. The promenade is perfect for taking a long evening walk, watching butterflies and birds in the dusk light, as you make your way back to your Sullivan’s Island vacation rental after a day on the beach.
