We just got back to the US, after a week in AC. Before we left, the weather people said it was thunder storms the whole week we planned on being there. We had only one day of full rain, and it was the day we left. The rest of the time was beautiful. It rained a couple of times at night, but sunny and wonderful during the day. I think if you take an umbrella, you will be fine. And, water proof shoes if you wear them...flip flops flip the wet sand onto your rear end, but barefoot works, too. Have a wonderful time.
