Summer at the shore is wonderful, but a visit to the beach in the fall offers its own charms when the crowds and the suns rays die down. The rates drop, too.
Wild Dunes on the Isle of Palms, SC is offering 20 percent off nightly rates at the Boardwalk Inn and Village, select vacation homes and condos through December 31.
We recently stayed in a beautiful condo there and enjoyed walks on the beach, a bike ride around the island and a delicious dinner at Sea Island Grill & Lounge. Charleston is a just a 20-minute picturesque drive away.
