Embrace your most Zen-like self in Edisto Beach

Set on Edisto Island, the lovely little town of Edisto Beach is at the edge of the ACE Basin, where the Ashepoo, Combahee, and Edisto Rivers combine to form one of the largest undeveloped estuaries on the Atlantic Coast of the U.S. The community is proud of its reputation for unspoiled natural parks and wetlands, and very little in the way of noisy industry. Vacationers come here to reconnect with the part of themselves that doesn't need to work, run errands, or gas up the car. Pick out a photogenic Edisto Beach vacation rental and just be.

You can snooze in the sun or keep an eye out for dolphins

The most popular pastimes in Edisto Beach are the ones that give families, couples, and friends a chance to relax and revel in the beauty of the outdoors. Charter a boat in the ACE Basin and cast a line for flounder, trout, and red drum. Take an ecotour in nearby Botany Bay or cruise with dolphins in the Atlantic. Of course, you can stick close to your Edisto Beach vacation rental and simply lounge on the sand or picnic in the park. The only rule around here is that you must enjoy the scenery.

Take in some American history under swaying Spanish moss

Part of Edisto Beach's magic is its remote location and lack of commercial enterprise. Nearby attractions tend toward the serene and historical. Travel a bit outside of town (11 miles, to be exact) and visit the William Seabrook house, a plantation built around 1810 and with the gabled roof and columns that characterized the Early Republic architectural style. Then check out the Edisto Island Museum, featuring exhibits on everything from the Civil War and the island's school for African Americans, to vintage children's toys and the art of weaving a shrimp net.

Hot, stormy summers and perfect temps in spring and fall

The balmy climate of Edisto Beach coupled with its laid-back atmosphere makes the place feel warm year round. This is especially true in summer, when highs hit the 90s. Book an Edisto Beach vacation rental then if you do a good cat-in-the-sun impression when the weather is hot. Summer is hurricane season, so make sure you're watching weather reports. The spring and late fall are perfect for most, with temps in the 70s and less rain than in summer. In winter, things cool down to the 50s, so it's still pleasant to walk, hike, and bike around town.

Shy turtles, great parks, and a good-looking garbage heap

The natural wonders of Edisto Beach will keep you coming back for more. The loggerhead sea turtle may as well be the town's mascot. These turtles climb ashore between May and October. If you're lucky you'll spot one, and if you're kind you'll keep a safe distance. Then, head to Edisto Beach State Park and hike a nature trail through forests of live oak and palmetto trees, or pass by the midden (that's a fancy word for "ancient trash pile") created by Native Americans around 2,000 BCE. It consists mostly of oyster shells and is cooler than it sounds.
