Plan an Unforgettable Trip to the Lowcountry with this 7-Day Itinerary to Fripp Island 

Day 1: Settle In 

No matter how you get to Fripp Island, we recommend getting settled in at your home away from home on your first day. Upon your arrival, you can expect a warm welcome from us and stop by guest services to ask us any questions about the resort or the area and get helpful local tips. Then, you’re welcome to head over to your vacation home and unpack your bags. Afterward, feel free to take a stroll or golf car ride around the island, see everything Fripp has to offer, and start crossing things off your 7-day itinerary to Fripp Island!  

Day 2: Explore the Area 

Once you spend a restful night, wake up, and prepare a delicious breakfast in your vacation rental’s spacious kitchen. You’ll be well-rested and fueled up for a fun-filled day on Fripp! Our Activity Center is happy to offer local recommendations and give you insight into the top attractions. Still, one of the best ways to get acquainted with the area is to head into town and explore. Downtown Beaufort is a short drive away from the island, and it’s packed with shops and restaurants to give you a taste of the area’s welcoming southern charm.  

Day 3: Embark on an Island Excursion 

Now that you know the area better — and maybe got some ideas for activities during your stroll through the island— it’s time to embark on an adventure. There are so many exciting possibilities in the Lowcountry, including dolphin spotting tours, fishing trips, kayaking, and so much more. You can even take advantage of our Family Fun in the Sun, or Get Hooked on Fripp Fishing packages! We created these convenient vacation packages to help you enjoy the experiences rather than stressing the details.
