Well, duh! Generations of both sides of Big T’s family are from Sullivan’s. His aunt still lives in the oldest house on the island! We love Sullivan’s because it is a mile from our house, the beaches are pristine and laid back, and you can hop over to Home Team to get a Game Changer if you’re thirsty!
Every time we drive onto Kiawah, our blood pressure lowers. The natural beauty of the island is just amazing. The beach is generous and the ocean is as far as you can see. It’s a great place to ride bikes to simply sightsee or pick up groceries at the Freshfields Harris Teeter. Wildlife is everywhere on Kiawah- where else can you look up and see a bald eagle staring down at you? Amazing!
Talk about another place to totally let go and relax. Pawley’s is like a step back in time. It is an old school beach, often called "arrogantly shabby" and it's 100% true! There are a lot of things to do in Pawley’s, but all you really want to do is sit on the beach and drink a cold beer!
The beaches of 30-A:
Little T grew up going to the gulf coast beaches and has never quite gotten that sugar white sand out of her mind. The beaches are a little more upscale than they used to be because of the planned communities of Seaside, Watercolor, Rosemary and Alys Beach. All of these beaches have gorgeous homes, fun restaurants, and great shops, but it’s the sand and clear blue water that make this place so memorable.
We love to visit Amelia. The beach sand is a little different than in Charleston, but no less awesome. It’s laid back and it has lots to do to keep everyone entertained. It really is a hidden gem along Florida’s east coast.
