Thanksgiving at Edisto

I am planning a trip to Edisto during the week of Thanksgiving. I've been there in the spring, summer and once in October, but never in November. Whats the weather like and is it crowded during Thanksgiving week? I loved it in October. I've rented Stone's Throw at 3124 Palmetto--anyone ever stayed there? Thanks for any information! Really am excited about getting to the beach.

It will probably be pretty quiet and peaceful with no crowds at all. The only times Edisto is what you could call "crowded" is during the summer.

It is hard to predict what the weather will be, especially this year (it was 91 here in Aiken yesterday & in the 80s at Edisto). I have seen Thanksgiving weeks with the temps in the 70s during the day; then again, I have seen weather that time of year that was very cold & windy. Best bet is to check a site like www.accuweather.com (my personal favorite) a few days before you come down. The water should be fairly chilly by that time, most likely in the mid to upper 60s.

I always spend Thanksgiving at the beach outside of Charleston. Each year is different, but they have all been enjoyable. We grill our turkey on the grill, and walk the beach no matter what the weather. The great thing is that if the weather is rainy and/or cold, you can head into Charleston on Friday for a museum or shopping. My Island is never too crowded at that time, but haven't driven over to Edisto during Thanksgiving. We also spend the week after Christmas thru New Years at the beach. Just being there anytime charges my soul! Have a great time! And Happy Thanksgiving early.

Oh, are you flying from Ky.?
