If you’ll be spending the Thanksgiving holiday in the area you’ll quickly come to realize there’s no better place to kneel down and give thanks than in front of the beautiful blue Atlantic Ocean. It has a certain way of putting things into perspective for all of us.
While everyone seems to be arguing on whether or not stores should be open on Thanksgiving and who is going where and when on Black Friday, you can just kick back at water’s edge, or on your balcony in a lounge chair, and just be grateful for the things that really matter – family and friends. There’s no more beautiful place to give those thanks than right here along the coast in South Carolina. So why not make the most of it while you’re here!
