There is shopping and the large stadium which has tennis and concerts as well as other family friendly festivals. There are golf courses. This is a... More

After living in DC for 3 years, we were in search of a destination that more closely matched the sense of community and neighborhood that we had for 3 decades in Cleveland, OH. As great as DC is, you're hard-pressed to find neighborliness, or even conversation. We found an incredible job opportunity on Daniel Island 8 months ago, and haven't... More

If you are looking for a house go here but there wasn't much else ot do . We made a plan to check out the islands while in SC so Daniel was no exception. There was a concert venue and a park but we found much more to do on Sullivan and Foley . Homes are beautiful though. I guess... More

Ride around to see the beautiful house and then park and take a stroll on the hiking tails. Watch the boats along the Wando river. It's a great spot to picnic too

I love Daniel Island! It isn't necessarily a vacation destination as another reviewer mentioned. However, it is great for locals and anyone who loves smaller town feel. There are also tons of walking trails that go through gorgeous neighborhoods and along the water. Overall, it is one of my favorite places in Charleston.

Daniel Island, named after colonial governor Robert Daniell, is a 4,000 acre extension to Charleston proper. While primarily residential, it is also home to the Volvo Tennis Center and MUSC Health Stadium. It is accessible via 1-526 and water taxi. I would not call it a destination but, if you have time and are in the area, one could spend... More

Spend a day sauntering about through a maze of fantastic walking and hiking trails. Meet up with other like minded outdoorsy folks walking dogs (on leashes *by ordinance) or on bike. Trails are well marked and take you thru the town, school district or by the water.
