There’s A Tiny Town In South Carolina Completely Surrounded By Breathtaking Natural Beauty

When you think of “tiny towns” in the Palmetto State this one might not be the first place that comes to mind. But the Isle of Palms, in spite of the fact that this barrier island is 6.5 miles long, really is a small town. The main retail area encompasses only a few blocks. Residents on the island even rely on public school systems in neighboring Mt. Pleasant and Sullivan’s Island.

The Isle of Palms has somehow managed to curtail major developments and to keep the high-rise hotels from moving in – and for their efforts this place has managed to retain its small town feel. As a result, one thing this island delivers in a big way is breathtaking natural beauty.
