A resort community, sometimes called a resort city or resort destination, is a town or area where tourism or vacationing is a primary component of the local culture and economy. Typically, the economy of a resort community is geared almost entirely towards catering to tourists. The typical Charleston resort communities has nice beaches, oceanfront luxury homes, shops and luxury boutiques selling locally-themed souvenirs, motels, world class golf courses, tennis courts, and unique restaurants within their boundaries. I believe there are four resort golfing communities in the greater Charleston SC area meeting these criteria; they are Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, Daniel Island, and Wild Dunes.
Kiawah (Key-a-wah) Island perpetuates the name of the Kiawah Indian tribe who used the Island for hunting and fishing during the 1600s. Kiawah Island is approximately 10 miles long and 1 mile wide and the beach is over 300 feet wide at low tide. There approximately 1,300 full time residents. Today Kiawah Island is a private resort and residential community that combines exclusive style with relaxed island living. Picture a place where tradition, tranquility, and respect for nature create an exceptional lifestyle for individuals seeking luxury real estate for a primary residence or vacation home.

Here you can dine in five-star luxury or spread a simple picnic on the beach. There are 20 miles of bike paths. Wildlife abounds on the island. There are five golf courses on the island the Ocean Course, Osprey Course, Turtle C
