Labor Day is right around the corner but that does not mean your summer has to come to an end. If you’re thinking about moving to the Charleston area or simply want to take a first class vacation, there are still numerous vacation packages available to the Charleston area.

If you are planning on flying to Charleston, check into Air Tran’s rates from Atlanta to the Charleston airport. They’re known to be extremely low, and I would recommend booking them separate from your ticket to Atlanta. Of course, if you’re in the mood for a mini-road trip, the drive from Atlanta to Charleston is about 6 hours.

I took the following package information from the Atlantic Journal Constitution:

On one of the region’s most beautiful beaches, Folly Beach Holiday Inn Oceanfront provides families the chance to experience all things summer. The three-day, two-night “Water, Water Everywhere” package starts from $495 weekdays or $575 weekends on stays through Aug. 30 Included are accommodations for two nights in an oceanfront room, a beach bag loaded with summer must-haves such as a beach towel, bottled water and trail mix, tickets to the South Carolina Aquarium or Splash Zone Water Park, and ice cream for the entire family. Call to book, 843-588-6464;

For travelers who like to saddle-up for a bit of adventure, the “Blazin’ Saddles” package with ResortQuest is a perfect fit for a ride into the summer sunset. Guests can explore the beautiful barrier island of Seabrook on horseback along the beach or on trails through a maritime forest. The package starts from $180 per person, per night. Included is a three-night stay in a one-bedroom villa through resortquestcharleston.com (a collection of more than 800 villas, cottages, private homes in the region), an advanced-level trail ride and beach ride and a one-hour Swedish massage. Call to book at 1-866-468-0762 and mention promo code 7013.

Perfect for families looking to make the most out of the season’s final days, the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina offers the “”Sullivan’s Island Beach Experience” package with all that’s necessary to enjoy the city of Charleston and the nearby historic beach town of Sullivan’s Island. With room rates from $129 per night, guests enjoy accommodations, transportation to and from Sullivan’s Island (9 a.m., 1 p.m., 5 p.m.), a tote bag full of beach toys, a boxed lunch and beverages and Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina cooler and koozies.

While you’re in the area, be sure to give Bob Brennaman a call at 843-345-6074. He offers complimentary tours of all the Charleston areas and is the leading area expert on all things real estate.
