Bring the Beach To You

All we want is to relax on the beach and soak up the sun,

so get in the vacation mindset early as you count down the days until your next stay with Island Realty. Here are our top five ways to bring the beach to you until it's time to pack your bags and visit the island in person!

1. Watch the waves on your screen!

Nothing says beach vacation like the sights and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean. Luckily for you, the Windjammer (Isle of Palms' beachfront music venue) has five live beach cams to transport you straight to the beach. Put these up on your TV or computer for the whole family to enjoy!

2. Play Some Beachy Music!

Grab your speakers and blast some tunes with our IOP Beach Vibes Playlist! We've made a playlist of 100 upbeat songs that are perfect for Summer, and it even features some local artists to put you in the Southern mindset!

3. Fix Up Some Charleston Recipes

One thing that everyone loves about the Charleston area is the cuisine. Try these recipes to bring your favorite restaurants home with you:

4. Plan a Happy Hour at Sunset

Although happy hour can be enjoyed anywhere, there sure is something special about having an iconic Charleston cocktail while watching the sunset. Stream the Windjammer's live beach cam and whip up one of these drinks to recreate the ambiance at home.

5. Bring Charleston to Your Living Room

You've probably heard of the hit Netflix show, Outer Banks, but did you know it was filmed in Charleston? Scenes filmed at Shem Creek, the Old Village in Mount Pleasant, and Sullivans Island will bring you back to the familiar scenes you're used to (read all about the filming locations HERE).

If you love Charleston and reality TV, Southern Charm may be the perfect show for you! The series depicts the lives of several socialites who reside in Charleston and focuses on Southern culture while featuring local landmarks and businesses. Tune into this show with Amazon Prime, Bravo TV, Direct TV, YouTube TV, and more!

Classic film, The Notebook, is a must-see when you're missing Charleston. Not only was it filmed locally, but it highlights the culture and beauty of the Lowcountry. If you don't already own it, you can stream it on YouTube, Google Play, iTunes, and Amazon Prime.

When you're ready to visit us in person, we'll have the perfect property ready and waiting for you! Book your next stay on the Island Realty website today!
