With Labor Day knocking on our doors, we already know that this summer season is going to end soon. For most of us, this means going back to work, taking the kids back to school and starting to prepare for the fall and winter holidays. For others, September is just another month to …go to the beach.
Yes, some of the great beaches in September can be found in South Carolina. The weather is not hot and wet anymore and you can enjoy spending time on the beach and tying outdoor activities.
If you want a place with few crowds where to soak up the sun, then Kiawah Island is an excellent choice. It’s close to Charleston, so make sure to consider this airport when you look for cheap flights to South Carolina . A round trip flight from New York during the second weekend of September (9 to 12) will set you back $374 per person (with a stop in Charlotte). Alternatively, you can fly into Charlotte ($234 RT , same weekend) and rent a car to get to Kiawah Island.
Or , if you don’t mind to share the beach with other travelers seeking sunshine, head to Myrtle Beach. There are direct flights from Charlotte to Myrtle Beach , but the rates are quite high and you are better off driving.
It’s not hard to find affordable Myrtle Beach hotels , especially if you avoid the Labor Day weekend. Rooms in 3-star hotel during the second weekend of September start at $49 per night.
