Kiawah Island, SC – Happiest Seaside Town in America

80466001Dubbed the “happiest seaside town in America” by Coastal Living, Kiawah Island, SC, is the exclusive retreat you’ve been searching for. Named after the Native American tribe that originally inhabited the land, Kiawah Island has miles of pristine beaches and a maritime forest that boasts a significant amount of native habitat. This private resort community offers individuals a chance to enjoy nature preserved right outside your back door.

Communities like Seabrook Island are situated right on the waterfront so you can take advantage of all that coastal living has to offer. The communities take care of the rest. With golf courses, tennis centers and marinas, you’ll be hard pressed not to have a good time. National spotlight has shone on Kiawah Island several times, hosting the 2012 PGA Championship as well as mentioned by Brides magazine as one of the best honeymoon destinations, by Travel Channel as one of the “Top Ten Beaches for Families” and by National Geographic Traveler as the “Second Most Romantic Beach in America.” With that many notable mentions, you might begin to wonder why you haven’t moved to Kiawah Island sooner!

All it takes is one trip to be entranced. Laze your days away getting lost in a book at the beach or take a canoe trip through the many marshes that line the intra-coastal waterways. If you’re in the mood for a shopping trip, there are several shopping centers that can provide something unique for even the most seasoned shopper. Staying active is easy to do on Kiawah Island, but it’s not mandatory. Why not fit a game of tennis in before relaxing at the spa for the rest of the day?

176879755Of course, even on a small island, arts and cultural activities are abundant. Catch an old flick at The Sandcastle on a casual Friday night or get all dolled up and head to a show by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. Did we mention that historic Charleston is only 21 miles away? So when you feel like you need a faster pace, just hop in your car and head down the road. You’ll still be able to watch the summer sunset from your porch after having an early dinner in the city.

On the island, the one thing that you’ll find throughout your entire experience is the value placed on community. When you’re surrounded by water, it’s hard not to know your neighbors. They say that the more people you know, the longer you live and on Kiawah Island, it’s easy to stay connected. Another bonus: no property taxes, which makes many residents very happy. The island government is committed to preserving the beauty of the land through the Kiawah Island Community Association, which provides beautification and preservation efforts as well as develops many programs on the island.

Kiawah Island has a great location in South Carolina and offers all the amenities that will make your retirement the one you’ve been dreaming about for ages. Come to Kiawah Island and find out why everyone is so happy.
