“Worth the stop....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

If your are looking for an alternative, Daniel Island is worth the stop. Though it is situated a 15 minute drive to the beach or downtown Charleston the atmosphere is comfortable and laid back. It was fun to check out the island and I especially liked Semet, the restaurant. There are other restaurants to choose from on the island, a grocery store, hotel etc.
Plan on returning and getting to know more about Daniel's Island.

“Hidden gem with easy access”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Daniel Island is a relatively new housing development just upriver from Charleston with easy access by car or boat. It is not yet fully developed so it will be a few years before it has the look and feel of a complete community, but it already has several very good restaurants and wonderful amenities.

“A Very Family Community!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Daniel Island is old time "Americana". Never have seen a community so family oriented. Multitude of parks, children, bicycle riders, walkers, joggers, small shopping area, etc. etc.

Daniel Island is well manicured with a variety of new homes and many still under construction. A very nice place to raise a family just outside the Mt. Pleasant and Charleston area. Family Circle Tennis Stadium on Island with many events during year!
My son and daughter-in-law ride their bikes to concerts from their home.
I love it here and if I didn't live in FL would enjoy this piece of life, also near/on the water as well!

“Family Circle Cup tennis venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We saw Hootie and the Blowfish at the Family Circle Cup stadium. It offered great fast food, including a food truck that sold cornbread! All the seats are good and bathrooms aplenty!
