Fall totally head over heels for "I Love Palms"

With an Isle of Palms vacation rental, you can have your cake and eat it too. Not only do you get the chilled-out island life, complete with beaches, boating, and some of the best golfing in the state, but you also get all the cultural attractions and events of Charleston right on your doorstep. Just off the South Carolina Coast, Isle of Palms is a classy sort of place, catering to a mixed group of permanent and temporary residents all looking for a slice of the good life out on this deliciously laid-back barrier island.

Spike that volleyball like you're in Top Gun

Beaches like these don't come into your life often, and they're going to be a huge part of your stay in your Isle of Palms vacation rental. Whether you're wanting to laze on the sand, swim in the sea, or play some beach volleyball, these beaches have got you covered—and if you turn up at the right point, you might even catch some live music too. There's a busy marina catering to easy-living boaters, while lots of vacationers are drawn to Isle of Palms for the golf scene. The shopping and dining scene isn't bad either.

There's more history round here than you'd have "fort"

With downtown Charleston just a 17-mile drive away, it's difficult to beat an Isle of Palms vacation rental in the awesome location stakes. From theaters and live music to performing arts festivals, South Carolina's first city is a cultural powerhouse, and attractions range from museums and historic buildings to the stingrays and alligators of the vast South Carolina Aquarium. If Civil War history is your bag, then there are plenty of sites hereabouts. Neighboring Sullivan's Island has Fort Moultrie, while the coastal Fort Sumteris one of the most significant monuments in the area.

So what if it's a little bit humid round here?

Isle of Palms isn't the sort of place where you're going to be needing igloos and husky dogs. Even in the middle of winter, temperatures are pretty mild and it doesn't freeze very often, though it can get a bit windy sometimes. Summers in this part of the world are hot, but can also be mighty humid, and you'll need to be prepared to get a bit wet. Thunderstorms are pretty much a daily occurrence, and over 40% of the annual rainfall happens in the summer months. If you like it a bit drier, spring or fall are the most ideal seasons for visiting.

There are no barriers to relaxation on this island

Isle of Palms is a barrier island on the coast of South Carolina. It's got the Intracoastal Waterway separating it from the mainland on one side, and the Atlantic Ocean stretching away into infinity on the other. The terrain round here is all about sandy beaches and salt marshes, and sunrises round here are the stuff of legend. And the coastal situation and hospitable habitats draw in more than just the travelers. The island might be a favorite spot with affluent vacation home owners, but the real celebrity residents are the nesting sea turtles.
