Activities

Fun for the
Entire Family.

Things to do:

People come back to Edisto every year because they enjoy the low-key lifestyle. You can take the children crabbing. Go shrimping or fishing. Or just watch the sun set. As the weather begins to hint of spring we all want to get outdoors.  The sunshine is calling us to play some golf, walk on the beach, or go for a bike ride.  When summer arrives Edisto is at its peak with so many things to do.  We don't have to tell you about the beach. Edisto has been a family get a way for generations. But there's much much more.

Bird watchers find a paradise on Edisto and history lovers go exploring. They immediately sense the roots of this community which reach back to the Native Americans (visit the shell mound in the State Park).  Visiting the sites of Sea Cloud Plantation or Bleak Hall's ice house give an excuse to get out and look around. And nature, as always, is inviting you to Botany Bay, the State Park, to enjoy the bike paths or to take the short drive to Caw Caw Swamp Interpretive Center. Edisto is, after all, the gateway to the 350,000 acre ACE Basin (Ashepoo, Combahee, and Edisto rivers) one of the largest conservation districts in the US. (http://www.fws.gov/acebasin/)

Celebrate the drive along the Edisto Island National Scenic Byway, designated by the Federal Department of Transportation. This designation places Edisto alonside such other scenic byways as Route 66, the Alaskan Marine Byway, the Selma to Montgomery March Byway, the Outer Banks Scenic Byway, the Florida Keys Scenic Byway and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
