Daniel Island
Located within the City of Charleston, Daniel Island is a 4,000-acre island town featuring traditional neighborhoods, professional golf, tennis, and soccer facilities and a growing collection of amenities in a self-contained island town setting. The island's downtown is home to schools, churches, medical offices, boutiques, restaurants, banks, a supermarket and many other conveniences. Hundreds of acres of parks, 23 miles of rivers and creeks, leisure trails and a private country club provide residents with endless recreational options, and the community's central location within Charleston puts it within a 20 minute drive of the city's famous downtown historic district, area beaches and airport. A highly-desirable destination for Charleston real estate, Daniel Island has been honored with numerous accolades including a prestigious “Award for Excellence” by the Urban Land Institute.
