Plan on being in the greatest city in the world (that’s Charleston in case you weren’t aware) this Memorial Day Weekend? Here are a few of the best ways to enjoy this Memorial Day Weekend in Charleston:
BBQ + Beach at Sullivan’s Island: Love Lowcountry BBQ? What about the beach? If you said yes to one or both of those questions, then you NEED to be on Sullivan’s Island for Memorial Day weekend!
Before hitting up the beautiful Sullivan’s Island beach (perfect for families, couples, and groups of friends, alike) for some fun in the sun, swing by Home Team BBQ for the best BBQ platters and sandwiches in the south. From award-winning ribs and mac n’ cheese, to the tastiest pulled pork you’ll ever have, and spectacular dry-rub ribs to an unbelievable Pimento Grilled Cheese Sandwich, you simply cannot go wrong at Home Team BBQ. PLUS, they have a great selection of beers on tap and a killer frozen cocktail, brewed daily.

Bicycles can be rented on the island at the Isle of Palms Beach Chair Company.
Picnic on Daniel Island: For a relaxing afternoon beneath the canopying live oak trees drizzled with Spanish moss, visit the Daniel Island Park and set up your very own picnic! Bring a selection of cheeses, fruit, and gourmet sandwiches from The Island Market or Laura Alberts Tasteful Options.
