Things to Do Near Seabrook Island

Posted 02/19/2020

From our racquet sports to our endless social activities, there is always something to do on Seabrook Island. Even with all of the amazing things that our community has to offer, sometimes, you just want to get a little farther from home. If you’ve been searching for some new things to try near Seabrook, this post is for you. We’ll start the list with things to do closest to our Seabrook community and branch out from there.

Freshfields Village

Just like Seabrook, there’s usually something happening at Freshfields Village. Stop by for a smoothie and breakfast sandwich from Java Java or browse the coastal furniture selections from GDC Home.

Bohicket Marina and Market

Bohicket has places to eat and relax, but it is also home to Pirates of Charleston. Bring the kids on a high seas adventure on the Black Ghost pirate ship to the North Edisto River. Have them sing along and follow the maps as the crew attempts to track down Sneaky Pete, a deserter who has stolen the key to a sunken treasure chest.

Charleston Tea Plantation

Just a short drive from Seabrook Island is the Charleston Tea Plantation, the only tea plantation in North America. Entry to the shop and the educational tour of the factory are free of charge. If you wish to take a guided trolley tour through the tea bushes and greenhouse, the admission price is $14 for adults and $7 for children ages 4-11. Those under 3 get in for free. 

Deep Water Vineyard

Deep Water Vineyard produces wine from one of the only kinds of native US grapes. Muscadine grapes, a Southeastern staple, produce sweet and fruity wines that pair well with spicy foods and a variety of meats. Visit the Deep Water Vineyard any Saturday from 12 to 4 pm for their Weekend Wine-Down with live music and food to go along with your wine.

Edisto Island Serpentarium

Although the Edisto Island Serpentarium and the next destination on our list are actually closer in distance to Seabrook Island than some of our other options, they’re on Edisto Island, which requires some circumnavigation to reach.

 

If you have little ones in the family that love looking at our Lowcountry alligators or enjoy all things reptiles, the Edisto Island Serpentarium can’t be missed. This establishment has exhibits dedicated to alligators, turtles, snakes, and lizards, plus educational lectures along the way. The Serpentarium is open from late April to early September.

Botany Bay

Last but not least, Botany Bay. Because of the number of sun-whitened fallen trees on the beach, some people have nicknamed it “Boneyard Beach.” Don’t let the nickname discourage you from visiting, though. Botany Bay is one of the treasures of our area. Be sure to check tide charts before visiting, as the beach is inaccessible at high tide.
