Why Isle of Palms for Charleston Vacations?
Isle of Palms is the ideal destination for guests who are seeking to experience the best of Charleston. Just a few short miles away from all of the sights and sounds of downtown Charleston, Isle of Palms offers many sights and sounds of its own.
A seven mile long and one mile wide island, Isle of Palms is home to roughly 5,000 full time residents and sees between 20,000-50,000 visitors per year. The island was developed in 1953 for American servicemen who served in World War II to give them affordable options for housing. The island quickly grew and became a very popular tourist destination due to its beauty and close proximity to America’s favorite city– Charleston, SC.
Currently, Isle of Palms is a vacation oasis. With numerous bike and walking trails that afford extraordinary scenic views to its guests, Isle of Palms is extremely popular among vacationers who enjoy the outdoors. Other outstanding features of the Isle of Palms include:
