As every 13 year-old girl posts on social media at some point, “the tan lines will fade, but the memories will last forever.” Granted, we live in Charleston where the tan lines never really seem to fade, but the lesson endures — sit back, relax, and enjoy summer a little because even though it sometimes seems like it, the juicy peaches and the Freezee Pops will eventually run out. We’ve included tons of activities to make sure your summer is a stupendous one, so take advantage of it.
