Charleston is Not a Monolith

When you hear of Charleston you probably think of the peninsula; Downtown Charleston gets all the attention and accolades, while the surrounding areas of charleston County seem to get left in the dust. But one of the great things about Charleston that makes it so unique is the different atmospheres available on the surrounding islands that make up Charleston as we locals know it. Mostly within a 20 minute drive from downtown, each stop offers its own individual take on the salt life and good vibes that continue to drive us to be the #1 destination in the US, and sometimes the world. Staying downtown can be a bit pricey, too, but luckily you can stay in any of the surrounding areas and still enjoy the Charleston you’ve heard so much about.

Rantowles Creek

Rantowles Creek

Not feeling the crowds at Shem Creek? We hear ya. That's why we like to explore many of the creeks and rivers in the Lowcountry. Sections of the Edisto River and Penny Creek are some of our favorites, as well as the ACE Basin in all of its glory. Those are less than 30 miles from Charleston and make for great half day excursions.

Total Eclipse 2017

Everyone is getting excited for the 2017 total eclipse coming up on August 21st.

A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun and completely shields the overwhelmingly bright light of the photosphere (the sun’s surface). This affords observers the unique opportunity to see the two outermost layers of the sun’s atmosphere (the corona and chromosphere).

Up Shem Creek without a paddle?

Shem Creek Kayaking

It is one of the staples of things to do during a visit of Charleston, South Carolina. Shem Creek is just a few short miles from the downtown peninsula and over the majestic Arthur Ravenel, Jr. Bridge spanning the Cooper River (pronounced Cup-ah by the natives).  It offers so many treasures in a calm, secluded bay.

Charleston Kayaking Review

I cannot say enough good about Nature Adventures! From the get go, they were extraordinarily nice. I am grateful for the constant reminders to not touch the oysters or get out of the kayak as I got stuck in an oyster bed and had to be rescued. Dana and Ben went above and beyond to rescue me and not make me feel like I was an idiot for getting stuck. 5 stars is not enough!- Diana A.
