Daniel Island was voted in “the top 50 best mastered planned communities in the US” by Where to Retire Magazine. This marks the 5th year Daniel Island has received this award.
The magazine was impressed by the two private golf courses, and the recreational activities at the Family Circle Tennis Center and Blackbaud Stadium. Boating, crabbing, parks, shops, restaurants, and proximity to Charleston’s abundant medical services were also reasons that the magazine ranked DI so highly. And they didn’t even mention the hospitality that the citizens of Charleston are duly famous for.
So if you haven’t moved or visited Charleston yet, what are you waiting for? Life is short, come live the low country life y’all!
