South Carolina boasts beautiful weather and comfortable temperatures for most of the year, and the temperatures climb through the spring, and through celebrations like Easter and into the summer. Along with the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the combination will have you pointing your compass toward the state and the city of Isle of Palms for a relaxing getaway this Easter. Here are just a handful of Isle of Palms Easter Activities that you and your family can enjoy.

Easter Dinner

Take a vacation from preparing the elaborate holiday meal and let the professional chefs at one of the many delicious area restaurants make the feast. There are various restaurants in the area that will be serving up the traditional Easter meal. Contact your restaurant of choice to find out the details like date, time, reservations, and whether they allow pick up or delivery of the special meal.

Easter Services

Vacationing in Isle of Palms this Easter doesn’t mean taking a vacation from the celebration of the most important day of your trip. The churches of Isle of Palms and the surrounding area are hosting services in observance of the day. Including the Sunrise Service located at Inlet Beach and it’s on the beach! It’s hosted by the First Presbyterian church but multiple churches gather together for this service. Contact your preferred place of worship and inquire about dates, times, and locations of services.


An escape to a beach location means spending plenty of time on the beach, no matter when you’re here. The warming weather and waters of spring mean you can spend a little extra time out in the sun. Sunbathe, talk a walk, build sand castles with the kids, or make your own fun. Brave the still-chilly waters of the Atlantic for water activities like swimming, snorkeling, SCUBA, or adrenaline-pumping parasailing, wakeboarding, and more.

Festival of Houses & Gardens

You’ll have to travel a bit, but the celebration is definitely worth the drive. The annual event gives you a peek at some of the area’s finest private gardens and residences, each heading toward lush blossoming for summer. Make touring as many of the nearly 150 private, historic homes participating in the festival give daily tours of the interiors and gardens of the property a part of your Easter plans. Plan your days right and you can visit eight to ten of the properties each day! More details and tickets are available on the Historic Charleston Foundation website. This year’s festival runs March 15 – April 16, 2023.


Coastal towns are all about the water and its activities. Anglers will want to get in on the fun while also being able to drop a line. There is a myriad of fishing charters that will take you to inshore, nearshore, and even out to the depths of the Atlantic in search of your next big fish story. If your fishing gear didn’t make the trip, most companies offer rental gear, tackle, and supplies for a productive day on the water.

Golf Cart Rentals

Leave the rental car parked and hop on a golf cart to explore the isle’s nooks and crannies you can’t get to by car. Several companies around Isle of Palms rent golf carts. Many are street legal, so you can cruise the road, too, but the best part is when you cruise down the sand for a little beach hopping. Depending on the company, you can rent the vehicles by the hour, half day, full day, or custom length of time that fits your vacation schedule.


If you thought your golf cart could get you everywhere, there are still some places around town that are even too small for it! Take a tour of the area and get some exercise at the same time, as well as negotiate those tight passages. Rent a bike for the ultimate Isle of Palms experience. There is an array of companies that offer rentals that suit your needs and schedule. Choose from adult bikes, children’s bikes, and accessories like child seats or trailers. Rentals include helmets, but you’ll want to ask about lights, extra baskets, and other accessories you may have on your own bike at home.
