If you plan to celebrate the New Year on Edisto Beach, there are plenty of things for you to do.
On Friday, Dec. 30, Green Boat Discount Liquors is having a Bloody Mary tasting from 4-7 p.m. to get everyone in the mood to celebrate. Think of it as preparation for New Year’s Eve. The store is located at 436 Hwy 164. Everyone aged 21 and older is welcome to come.
On New Year’s Eve itself, The Edisto Bookstore is having a book signing with C. Hope Clark, the author of the Edisto Island Mystery Series from 3-5 p.m. The bookstore is located at 547 Hwy 174.
If you’re into sports, head out to the Edisto Coffee Shop for the New Year’s Eve Bowl Game, which starts at 6 p.m. The Edisto Coffee Shop is located at 3731 Docksite Road.
You can also visit any of the numerous bars on New Year’s Eve to celebrate with friends, family, and locals.
If you’re looking to do something a little bit more wholesome, head into Charleston to the James Island Festival of Lights. This Christmas-themed event offers visitors thousands of lights to view, opportunities to visit Santa, and the chance to get any lingering needs for holiday cheer out of one’s system.
You can also opt to stay at home to celebrate, which is always fun when you’re at the beach. The weather is supposed to be nice on New Year’s Eve, so if you care to celebrate early, take the boat out and spend some time on the water. Don’t have a boat? Spend some time on the beach and enjoy the sunshine.
This time of year is great for an oyster roast, steamed local crab and peel-and-eat shrimps, so if you decide to hang out at home, take advantage of Edisto’s seafood options. Plus, you can pig out and then resolve to stop pigging out in 2017, so it’s really a win-win situation.
Whatever you decide to do on New Year’s Eve, we hope you have a great time and are ready for another wonderful year on Edisto Beach!
