Every July 4th, our military takes flight over the entire South Carolina coast in an event known as Salute from the Shore. This inaugural flyover which was assisted by a C-17 from Charleston AFB, received rave reviews so they’ve continued this patriotic tradition year after year. Head down to the beach at 1 pm and get ready to cheer on the armed forces fly down the coast – a symbolic reminder of our freedom as we celebrate our nation’s birthday!
