A taste of lowland life in McClellanville

Once you’re sitting in one of the enclosed porches or around a cozy firepit that some of these Airbnbs offer, it can be tempting to while away the warm South Carolina days doing absolutely nothing! However, the area is so full of things to see and do that it would be a mistake not to venture outside your rental. Canoe or kayak through the lovely creeks and marshes. Sun yourself on the beach. Visit the historical towns and sights of the area and travel a number of years into the past. Whatever you choose, be sure to pick one of these rentals to be your home away from home during your trip!
