Isle of Palms, near Charleston, South Carolina NC

Description

Isle of Palms is a lovely area, near Charleston. It has pretty, colorful homes with tropical landscaping. It's fun to just drive around the streets taking in the atmosphere. There is a main strip, Ocean Blvd, with cute cafes and stores under red roofs. Have an ice cream at Ben and Jerry's here. You can park in a large lot and access a wide beach with a pier.
All the way on the east end of the island, the beach has a good feel to it near Boardwalk Inn, slightly more narrow and cozy than wide-open Sullivan's Island Beach, and with nicer sand. Between Sullivan's Island Beach and Isle of Palms, stop at Thompson Park to check out Breach Inlet, a very pretty spot. 
On your way back to Charleston town, eat a meal enjoying amazing views at the three-level Saltwater Cowboys Restaurant, and stop for a stroll below the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge at Mt. Pleasant Pier.
