Ultimate Locals Guide to a Lowcountry Girls Getaway

Updated: Aug 12, 2019

Kiawah, Seabrook, and Johns Islands are the perfect destinations that will give you a girls trip to remember whether it’s a weekend or a week long! You will of course need somewhere to stay for this adventure. The place to start your search for the perfect rental is Vacasa. If you do a search on which island you want to stay, the website offers you 3D tours and photos so you get a good look at where you may potentially be staying. Akers Ellis also has a very user friendly website that’s easy to search rentals specific to the Lowcountry. You’re sure to find the perfect pad to accommodate each and every one of your girlfriends.


Now on to planning your gal pal activities! We already know you’re here for the beautiful beaches, so here’s some great ideas to add to your girls trip to-do list.

What’s a girls trip without shopping! The lovely Freshfields Village offers an array of boutiques for you and your girlfriends to check out. Scout and Molly’s is definitely one to consider. They will make you feel comfortable and welcomed while their in-house stylists help you choose pieces that best suit you. New to Freshfields is a Lululemon pop-up, scheduled to be open throughout the summer and early fall months. They sell all kinds of sportswear for the fitness-focused girls in the group. Besides diamonds, makeup is a girl’s best friend. Bluemercury offers expert opinions on all the luxury brands every makeup lover adores. Just a few ideas for you!

And of course, we can’t forget to mention that you MUST come to Palmetto Scent Studio! While you can buy something right off the shelf, the fun thing to do is to sit at the fragrance bar with your girls and create your own signature scent in not only a candle, but other home fragrance products like room/linen sprays, diffusers and wax tarts. And don’t forget that we also offer body products like goat milk & honey body creams, roll-on fragrances, body washes, body mists and sugar scrubs - that can all be custom-scented! A fun way to top off your custom product is to add a souvenir label or unique custom monograms to commemorate your girls trip! The icing on the cake is that we are BYOB and if that doesn’t sell you, we don’t know what will!
