Clements Ferry & Point Hope
Still considered a part of the City of Charleston, Daniel Island is located in Berkeley County and situated between the Cooper and Wando Rivers just northwest of Mount Pleasant. It was once entirely owned by a single-family up until 1997 when it was sold to The Daniel Island Company to be developed responsibly in accordance with the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation plan for the area. The entire community, both residentially and commercially, is still planned on this basis of responsibility today.
The active lifestyle of the community on Daniel Island is supported by hundreds of acres of parks, neighborhoods, shops, and restaurants. All Daniel Island communities are each centered around one of its eight parks. There are also two professional sports facilities – the Family Circle Tennis Center and MUSC Health Stadium.
Charleston is the oldest city in South Carolina and is located on the Charleston Harbor between the Ashley and Cooper rivers. Charleston has a rich history, unique architecture, a vibrant restaurant scene, culture of hospitality, and has received awards including “World’s Best City” by Travel + Leisure in 2016.
The downtown portion of Charleston is on the peninsula between the Ashley and Cooper Rivers. The city also includes the popular residential districts of James Island, Johns Island, West Ashley, and Daniel Island. Charleston has extremely well preserved architecture and easily recognizable home designs.

Isle of Palms & Sullivans Island
Alongside the east coast of Mount Pleasant is Sullivan’s Island, with Isle of Palms located north. Isle of Palms, better known simply as IOP, is well known for its sprawling beach and active community. A mix of year-round residents and vacationers, there is always something to do, like attend a concert on the beach or play a round of golf at the popular Wild Dunes Resort.
Sullivan’s Island is located at the entrance of the Charleston Harbor and once was an active military site during the American Revolution where a major battle took place at Fort Moultrie. Today, Fort Moultrie is a preserved historical site for tourism. Sullivan’s Island real estate is very attractive, boasting larger homes on oceanfront properties. The beaches are kept pristine and it is not uncommon to see surfers, windsurfers, kites, dolphins, and pelicans all year round.
Located just east of Charleston, Mount Pleasant edges along the Charleston Harbor, Cooper River, and tidal Wando River. Just over the Ravenel Bridge, this city is also home to The Old Village District with homes that date back to the 18th Century as well as Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum and Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park. The beautiful parks and historic sites are just a couple of the reasons Mount Pleasant is attracting a growing number of new residents and year-round visitors.
Some favorite points of interest are Boone Hall Plantation, the former cotton plantation with 300 years of history, as well as Patriots Point Links and Charleston National Golf Park for some of the best golf in the area. If you like seafood, look no further than Shem Creek for the freshest catches of the day at this popular restaurant and nightlife destination.
