10 Things To Do In Sullivan’s Island South Carolina

SULLIVAN'S ISLAND:Sleepy Little Beach Town


If you been following my blog these past few years, then you know I am in love with Coastal, South Carolina. A few weeks back we took a road trip to Charleston to see the Women’s Family Circle Tennis. We spent the night. The following morning we headed to one of my favorite places called Sullivan’s Island it is only 15 minutes outside of Charleston.

Sullivan Island is a quaint town which is only  2.5  square miles long. It’s one of South Carolinians best-kept secret. What I love about this sleepy town is its small time feel. Both my husband and I  with my dog Luigi walked down the quiet streets. Cheerful cottages with multi-colored facades are what makes this adorable coastal town a popular place to vacation.

One of the beautiful things about taking a leisure stroll through a quiet town its reminder of how things can stay true to its original life.

Real estate has been busy with vacation homes being purchased, but town ordinances keep this small town vibe.

Sullivan Island is known as well for some good eateries such as Poe’s Tavern, the Obstinate Daughter and Sullivan Restaurant. One place that left a sweet taste in my mouth was Beards Cat Sweet Shop, it is right below Obstinate daughter. It’s a coffee shop and gelateria with amazing home-made pastries.


I know there will be many more trip back here for me. How about you?  Love to hear about them. If you are looking at places to stay in Sullivan Island check out Trip Advisor for great hotel deals.
