Charleston or Savannah Beach Communities

Jump to last reply

We are looking to purchase a property that would offer a respite from the Northern winters, among other things. We have been to both Savannah and Charleston on short trips and like both towns. We would probably be looking to buy in a nearby beach community. We have stayed at both Kiawah and Hilton Head, but both seemed a long drive into town.

A walkable community –one where we would not have to get into a car to get a cup of coffee at a café—would be tops on our list. We like to walk, bike, fish and kayak. We would be going down in the winter for the next few years. We might rent out for the other months, so it would have to appeal to others.

We are making a scouting expedition this December, so we would appreciate any suggestions to narrow down our search. I have been checking the forums and other sites and have considered Isle of Palms, Tybee, even Beaufort, but I am still stumped. Thanks.
