“ The times, they are a changin” (Bob Dylan)
Unspoiled beaches, championship golf and pristine oceanfront pools define the vacation experience at Seabrook Island, South Carolina. If you are considering vacationing here, consider adding these four activities to your "to do" list.
I just read the results of the CondeNaste Readers Poll for 2014 and though there were some surprises in the favorite destinations worldwide amongst the nearly 1,000,000 votes from highly experience travelers, I was not at all surprised to see that Kiawah Island in South Carolina was ranked as the #2 island in the world and #1 in the United States.
That said, it is a remarkable achievement when you consider it ranked above magical places such as Bora Bora, Moorea, the Great Barrier Reef and Islands and even Maui and Kauai here in the US. I say that I am not surprised as I have spent considerable time in Charleston and the barrier islands of Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island, which are contiguous "sister" islands located only 20 miles from Charleston. It is, as one million voters agreed, a place that feels “like you are world away”.
