Coming down first week of June - arriving Thurs night leaving Sunday.
Looking for some feedback. Thinking about renting a car Friday morning to see a few beaches and drive around a few towns outside of Charleston to check them out to potentially look for a retirement destination. My wife and I will continue to work for another 5-10 years and are active and want to find a place that is warmer than NJ, and has a nice town to walk to restaurants and into town for shopping. Walking is important to us but we are not city people either (more suburban) but would love to go into Charleston for restaurants and to visit. We love the beach and would prefer to be close by but not sure we can afford the pricey homes in Kiawah etc ($500k range would work). Any areas to recommend for our Friday drive to find our future place.
Then we plan to return late Friday afternoon and enjoy Charleston for the rest of the weekend on foot and have reservations at Magnolia (Fri) and Circa 1886 (Sat). We can't wait. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
