A History With A Little Sand Between Your Toes
From historic homes to sandy beaches, Charleston offers something for everyone.

As for the beach aspect of the trip, we couldn’t have been happier. Our house was inside Wild Dunes, an upscale, gated resort with golf and private beaches just a 15-minute drive from Charleston’s downtown historic district. By splitting the rental fee with friends, the cost for our share of the expenses was about the same as it would have been for a three-star hotel in Charleston. Wild Dunes is just one beach option. Use sites like VRBO.com to find rentals on Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, and Folly Beach, too.
While the water in March was too cold for swimming, the girls didn’t care.
They enjoyed hunting for shells and squishing sand between their toes. We spent long stretches on the screened-in deck facing the water, just taking in the breeze and scanning for dolphins playing in the surf.
All us agreed that our week in Charleston was pretty close to perfect. Don’t forget about this Southern jewel when looking for your next family adventure.
