Morn­ing on beach, af­ter­noon at Fort Moul­trie, din­ner at Poe’s or Fiery Ron’s.

MORN­ING

Af­ter work­ing on that tan at the beach, check out the Sul­li­van’s Is­land Light­house. The struc­ture it­self may be fenced off to the public, but the grounds are still ex­ploratory and, with the Life Sav­ing Sta­tion and its coastal ar­chi­tec­ture nearby, it all makes for an ex­cel­lent photo op­por­tu­nity.

AF­TER­NOON

Steer your way to Fort Moul­trie and its visi­tors cen­ter—it was here that the first decisive vic­tory for the Amer­i­can colonies oc­curred and from which the first shots of the Civil War were fired upon Fort Sumter. Ad­mis­sion to the cen­ter and fort grounds is a rea­son­ably priced three bucks for adults.

EVENING

Head to Poe’s Tav­ern for a juicy burger and a cold beer while mar­veling at the kitschy in­te­rior, in­clud­ing Poe T-shirts. Or, if bar­be­cue’s more your han­ker­ing, Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ also is lo­cated nearby; in ad­di­tion to pulled pork and chick­den, it fea­tures live mu­sic on week­ends.
