Charleston vacation rentals

An outdoor lover's paradise

If you're an outdoorsy type, it makes sense that you'd book a Charleston vacation rental in the hopes of experiencing the area's beauty. Why not take the family and go camping at Sunset Bay State Park? If you're feeling a little adventurous, a guided boat excursion is a fun way to explore what's going on under the sea while taking in the area's magnificent beauty. Shopping junkies will find paradise at the Charleytown Marketplace, a shop packed with one-of-a-kind finds and souvenirs designed by some of the area's finest artists.

There's nothing average about Charleston

No average park, the Shores Acre State Park is home to an exquisitely landscaped botanical garden with a lily pond. Continuing with the nature theme, the Charleston Marine Life Center provides visitors with a taste of aquatic adventure, focusing on various ecosystems and undersea creatures. Nature lovers will also appreciate visiting the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve, where you'll find everything from freshwater wetlands to opportunities for kayaking. There's even some art in the mix. Feeling lucky? Try your hand at The Mill Casino!

You won't find a flake here!

Unless you had snow in mind when you booked your Charleston vacation rental, you won't miss the fact that flakes don't fall here. In July, it may top out at a comfortable 70 degrees. In fact, proximity to the water is what makes Charleston so cool, breezy, and relaxed. If you're in the area during winter, be aware that it can get as cold as 40 degrees, which is, at the very least, light jacket weather. It's not always sunny in Charleston, but the weather is particularly pleasant if you appreciate a light breeze and don't miss the occasional drizzle.

Frothy waves and adorable sea lions

Perhaps the most humbling site here is the view of frothy waves crashing against the rocks at Shore Acres State Park. The area is also home to over 40 miles of sand dunes, which provide a desert-like atmosphere. Charleston also sits at the entry to Coos Bay, over which craggy rock formations add character to an already breathtaking spot. Cape Arago State Park is just a mile south, and its highlight is an overlook that offers near flawless views of sea lions, seals, and other fun marine creatures below. If you book a Charleston vacation rental for no other reason, make it this.
