Where to Live
Anywhere on Daniel Island is a good spot to be. As most residents will tell you, the neighborhood is a short drive from everything. Downtown Charleston is roughly a 20-minute drive from Daniel Island, but the area also has a quaint downtown that’s all its own. There, you’ll find condominiums that allow you to walk to everything, but if space and serenity is what you seek, consider any of the “park” communities centered around schools, churches, and places of business.
Daniel Island offers a good number of affordably priced homes in addition to a selection of grand estates in the multimillion-dollar range. You’ll generally find a greater square footage per dollar in Daniel Island than on the Chucktown peninsula.
Where to Eat
Daniel Island residents love a good pizza, as evidenced by the plethora of pizza parlors and eateries in the area. If you’re looking for something more Lowcountry, try Laura Alberts—their crab cakes are delicious, and they offer fantastic dinner-to-go options.
