Traveling to Kiawah in the month of October

A fall visit to Kiawah and Seabrook Islands during October is probably one of the best times of the year to go. The temperatures begin to finally get into the comfortable eighty degree range with much less humidity of which golfing, tennis, and horseback riding become much more enjoyable. In addition to cooler air temperature, the water temperature of the Atlantic Ocean remains quite warm given the long summer months of gradual heating up. I usually prefer the months of May and October to be optimal times to visit the low country. The other benefit to travelling during October is the reduced rental rates offered from some resorts and private owners. Before settling down to one particular villa or rental home, shop around to see which property management company or resort offers the lower rates as some will begin to lower prices effective October 1st, while others maintain the “summer rate” until November.

The other benefit to October travel is the reduced population on the island, though I have never really seen this island congested with tourists. I suppose the quiet peaceful tranquility will hit a snag next summer with the 2012 PGA tournament coming to the island. The availability of golf tee times also appear more plentiful during this fall season which allows one to get in that round of eighteen much quicker and with greater flexibility in scheduling.

If perusing Southeastern U.S. travel destinations to visit in the month of October, consider the Charleston area as one of prime areas to visit.
