Escape to Freshfields Village this Summer

Summer is in full swing here at Freshfields Village, which means there’s plenty of activities for you to take advantage of. In order to make a full day out of being on the island, we’ve included a roundup of fun activities and things to do for you and the family.

Explore the Island
Wanting to spend the day on the water? You’re in luck. SeaCoast Sports and Outfitters rents kayaks and paddleboards so that you can have a fun day at the beach or in one of the island’s creeks. If water sports aren’t your style, SeaCoast Sports and Outfitters also offers bike rentals for you to explore the island!

Enjoy Live Music
Music on the Green takes place every Friday from 6:00 to 9:00 pm until August 30th. This family friendly, outdoor concert series features local groups and top acts from across the Southeast in all genres of music. The concerts are free, and guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair. Leashed pets are also welcome! The full schedule is available here.

Watch a Movie Under the Stars
Join us for Starlight Cinema on Wednesdays at 8:30 pm through August 21. Guests can bring a blanket, chair, and picnic and enjoy a free family outdoor movie under the stars. Don’t forget to bring popcorn! View the full movie schedule here.

Take a Step Back in Time
The old fashioned atmosphere you experience at Vincent’s Drugstore & Soda Fountain is like no other. The soda fountain features all the classics, from root beer floats and malts, to banana splits and sundaes. Not only does the soda fountain offer ice cream desserts, but they also have a delicious food menu!

Get Creative
For the days it’s too hot to do anything outside, fragrance pouring at Palmetto Scent Studio is a fun activity that everyone in the family is sure to love. Whether you choose to pour a home fragrance or a body product, you’ll find your perfect custom scent and will definitely have fun creating it. As an added bonus, enjoy Christmas in July in the studio this month! When the kids are out of school, sometimes it’s hard to find activities to keep them busy. Sign them up for in-store activities at Wonder Works every Thursday at 11:00 am! It’s only $8 per child and they get to take home their creation.

Bring Fido to the Village for a Pet-Friendly Outing
Have fido with you? A majority of events happening in Freshfields Village allow pets. Additionally, pet-friendly stores and patios are indicated by decals. If you’re planning to go into stores that aren’t pet friendly, Freshfields Village’s new DogSpot is a safe space for your dog to stay while you finish shopping. Learn more about our new pet-friendly initiatives here.

Grab a Beach Read
Indigo Books is one of the few remaining independent bookstores in the state. They offer a wide selection of books for you and the little ones. Not only do they have books, but they also have jigsaw puzzles, stationary, and so much more. This is the best place to stop and grab a book before heading to the beach!

The Village offers fun for the whole family (four-legged family members included). With so much to do in the Charleston area this summer and so little time, we encourage you to make a “Freshfields Village Bucket List” and give the activities on this list a try!
