North of the Charleston peninsula, you’ll find the town of Mount Pleasant along with Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms. While more residential than Kiawah, Mount Pleasant is full of gems such as the 943-acre Palmetto Islands County Park, with paved trails that crisscross the marsh, a playground and 50-foot observation tower, a kayak launch, horseshoe pits, and sand volleyball courts. Travelers who want to explore Mount Pleasant in greater depth should check out new, and reasonably priced, hotels like the Springhill Suites by Marriott Mount Pleasant that are also convenient to Charleston’s historic district. Before you head out into the great outdoors of the Charleston area, turn to the AFAR Travel Advisory Council for guidance, and then book one of their itineraries at target=“_blank”>AFAR Journeys.
