Edisto Beach Bucket List

Now that summer is winding down, it’s likely that many of you who visited this year forgot to do something while on vacation. It happens.

Even after years of coming to Edisto Beach it’s possible to never find the time to do something you’ve always wanted to do. However, that doesn’t mean you should stop trying. Think of these undone activities as your Edisto Bucket List.

Here’s just a glimpse of the things you can put on your Edisto Bucket List…

Actually riding around the entire bike path

This is something I’ve wanted to do since the bike path was created. I’ve gone on parts of it via bike, foot and golf cart (the latter of which is not actually allowed), but I have never traversed the entirety of the path. People do it year after year, and I’ve always meant to, but I just haven’t.

I think it would be amazing to ride around the entire path and see all the parts of the town that I’ve never seen. Plus, in the off season when the weather is heavenly and the humidity is low, it would be an exquisite bike ride.

Camping at the beach

The Edisto Beach State Park is something that thousands of people know and love. However, many of us have never experienced that type of Edisto experience.

Camping in a tent at the state park seems like it would be amazing. After all, the sound of the surf crashing throughout the day and night and feeling the ocean breeze is nothing short of heaven.

What I think would be amazing about camping at the beach is having the ability to be fully immersed in the environment of the beach. Sure, staying in a front-row house is similar in terms of easy access to the beach, it’s not quite the same as staying in a tent and feeling that wind, hearing the animals and insects, and waking up to the sunrise.

Heading out into the deep

Going deep sea fishing or boating isn’t for everyone. You may love boat rides, but heading out to a point where you can no longer see land is something that can be a bit daunting. However, to experience the Atlantic Ocean in all of its greatness and seeing nothing but water as far as the eye can see would be the most relaxing thing in the world.

Some people say that the farther out one goes on a boat, the clearer the water becomes. It can be so clear you can see some of the marine life that lives beneath the surface.

Staying out on the island

The island differs so greatly from the beach that I’ve always wondered what it would be like to spend a couple of weeks out there without going to the beach.

Walking through the woods, kayaking through the creeks and watching the abundant deer on the island all seem like incredibly relaxing activities. Plus, the island is stunningly beautiful, which is something that many people don’t spend enough time appreciating.

What’s on your bucket list?

Everyone’s list is different, so what’s on your bucket list? What have you always wanted to do on Edisto but never took the time to do?
