We interrupt this season of snow, ice and cold to bring you the warmth of Isle of Palms,(correctly said as "Olive of Palms" with a Southern accent.) Isle of Palms is a barrier island off the coast of Charleston, SC. It is separated from the pleasant suburb of Mt. Pleasant, SC by the Intracoastal Waterway. The closest beach to Charleston, it is filled with locals and tourist alike. Really only a one-street town, you can stay at a few hotels, or rent a condo. But alot of visitors like to rent massive beach houses which can hold your entire extended family for a family reunion week at the beach.(Most rentals require a week stay from Memorial Day to Labor Day) Close by, in Mt. Pleasant, you can try some delicious southern cuisine, visit Boone Hall Plantation or visit the usual shops of suburbia.
We went there over Labor Day last year and had a gorgeously hot day at the beach. Ate lunch at Coconut Joe's right on the water and then headed over to Sullivan's Island, stopping to take in the beautiful sunset and views over the marsh of the Holy City of Charleston. A perfect day at the beach that couldn't be beat!
