Questions about Kiawah/Seabrook/Wild Dunes

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are considering spending a week on Kiawah with our daughters (5 and 8). We know little of the area, but we're looking to try something new. I've always wanted to see Charleston and we all love the beach, so it is intriguing. However, we know very little about the area and despite searching these forums and the internet and general, I still feel a little unsure about commiting to a rental (and a very long trip from Mass.). I'm hoping some of you can answer my questions and help me to get a better sense of the area and whether it would be a good fit for us.

1. I've been looking at rentals on Kiawah, Seabrook Island, and Wild Dunes. Pros and cons? Any one better than the others for a family?

2. We don't golf or play tennis. Is it still worth a visit?

3. What is the beach like? Water temp, size of the waves, type of sand, etc.?

4. How child-friendly a city is Charleston? I've seen a lot of great looking high-end restaurants, boutiques and galleries; sadly, these will not likely be on our itinerary this time.

5. Is Savannah a feasible day trip? Worthwhile?

6. Is there any other area that you can compare with Charleston and the islands so I can get a better sense of the place?

I love to travel and we take a vacation at least once a year. In the last few years we've been to DC, Sarasota, Orlando and Newport CA; I just want to be sure that I don't pick a disappointing destination this time around.

Thanks for any help and opinions you can provide!
