Want to wake up to scenic views? Enter: Kiawah River. Complete with stunning homes, neighborhood parks, and more, here’s why you may want to call this piece of paradise home — or schedule a local staycation at one of its riverfront bungalows:
By the numbers:
- 2,000: Acres of riverfront for year-round outdoor wandering and discovery.
- 100: Acreage of local farm featuring fresh eggs, grassfed beef, and a goat dairy.
- 20: Miles of trails perfect for biking along marsh fields, tidal creeks, and the Kiawah River.
What to do:
When you stay by the sea, you can start the day by sliding onto a paddle board and grabbing binoculars to see the colorful wildlife, which includes spoonbills, bottlenose dolphins, and white-tailed deer.
Want to start the day by getting active? Greet the day with a sunrise hike — or follow the leader on mushroom foraging excursions and wildflower planting parties.
Pick up fresh produce for a delicious Lowcountry dinner and say hello to the baby goats at the farm, then enjoy outdoor dining under great live oak trees. Say goodnight from Sea Island Park at sunset as you walk home in the twilight.
