Edisto Island, SC (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Constant worry about the global economic climate has just about everyone thinking that they better not spend a dime on anything other than essential needs, but that’s because they’ve never heard about shoulder months.
Shoulder months are on either side of a vacation destination’s peak season. These months have no crowds, plenty of vacancies, the absolute best rates, and beautiful weather. So why are they not peak months? That’s simple: they don’t fall into the official summer months of June, July, and August.
For an area like South Carolina, the summer months are just a few of many months full of warm temperatures, blue skies, soft breezes, and sparkling water. That is why many families visiting South Carolina beaches make it a point to stay in the ‘off-times’ so they can reap the savings that go along with that time. One such place for this activity that is popular along the South Carolina coast is Edisto Island.
Edisto Island is 45 minutes south of Charleston and home to Edisto Beach. The beach is a non-commercialized town where visitors step back in time to a place where the simple pleasures in life are appreciated. Its four miles of beach are lined with everything from small cottages from the 1930s featuring nothing more than the basics to brand new structures equipped with the latest and greatest. However, the one thing nobody will ever see on Edisto Beach is a hotel.
That’s because this place is committed to providing vacationers with a place to go where swimming, sun bathing, boating, ecotours, fishing, and shelling are the main sources of entertainment all year long.
Average highs in March hover in the high-60s, but it is not uncommon for temperatures to get as high as 80. April really warms up with average temperatures in the mid-70s.
So, how much can a visitor really save on lodging? “We’re seeing a trending towards people coming to Edisto during the shoulder months where they can save upwards of 50% off peak prices,” Robert Hart, founder of EdistoBeach.com, said. For example, "Great beach front homes like Tropical Breeze, that go for around $5,000 per week in the Summer, can be had for almost half that amount in the fall when the weather is often still very good."
For all its un-commercialized flair, visitors will find that Edisto Beach still manages to offer a variety of restaurants (all of which feature local seafood), one grocery store, a service station, public marina, gift shops, art galleries, a beach-front state park, and hundreds of rental homes all within walking distance to the beach. During these months of savings, Edisto Beach should be on the short list for those looking for a family friendly vacation at family friendly prices.
