Take a Driving Tour Of Sullivan’s Island – “Hop in the car y’all”
Sullivan’s Island is the quintessential in historic, Southern, island living. The island is neatly positioned seven nautical miles to the north of Historic Charleston. The island is easily accessible from Mount Pleasant via the Ben Sawyer Bridge (SC Highway 703) or the Isle of Palms Connector (SC Highway 517). Sullivan’s Island is home to nearly 2,000 residents.
The town was incorporated in 1817 as Moultrieville and later renamed Sullivan’s Island. The island has no motels or B&B’s and has just a few short-term rentals. The homes on Sullivan’s Island vary from classic beach cottages to aesthetically pleasing new construction.
When you speak of Sullivan’s Island, one of the first things that comes to mind, besides its sheer beauty, is the islands rich history. Sullivan’s Island is home to historic Fort Moultrie. The fort boasts over 171 years of history, from the early shots of the American Revolutionary War to WWII protection from German U-boats. Sullivan’s Island was also, at one-time, home to Edgar Allen Poe, which is where he penned the classic The Gold Bug. These moments are but a snapshot of the rich history of the island.
I encourage you to let me give you a tour of the island, and I will point out some more of its history and beauty. Personally, I have spent many summers on the island, which is why I understand the islands popularity.
Before the comfort of air conditioners, many Charlestonians would spend their summers on the island enjoying the beach and cool summer breezes.
Today, Sullivan’s Island has added to its mix of natural enjoyments, great restaurants, quaint bars, art shops, and a centrally located park with basketball, tennis, soccer facilities and a children’s play park. Spending time on the island is a real joy and truly calls one to relax and slow down.
Home prices for the island have steadily risen over the past few years, and most homes are priced at $1 million and above. So much is desirable about Sullivan’s Island: the proximity to Charleston, world-class dining and shopping in neighboring Mount Pleasant, average island temperatures of 65 degrees and the draw of gracious southern living. These features have helped propel Sullivan’s Island to a new level, which is proving to be more and more appealing each year. I invite you to read some of my other island facts and explore the rest of my web site.
