Seabrook is beautiful, and close enough to spend a day or two in Charleston, but just isolated enough to get a little "stranded" feeling. The location results almost in forced relaxation, but that can be a good thing. Loved walking or biking around roads lined with beautiful homes and trees. The roads to Charleston are not interstates but have very few stop lights until close to the bridge to downtown. The market/grocery store at Freshfields nearby is perfect for the area. The island is beautiful but larger than expected. Driving is easy as traffic is very light, but at 25mph it's about a 9 minute drive from the southern tip of the island to the gated entrance. Stay toward the southern part if you spend alot of time at the beach club. An ammenity card is highly recommended as the beach pool complex is not accessible without one. We spent most of our time there. Red's Ice House has found a nice niche as a reasonably priced, very casual restaurant at the picturesque Bohicket Marina. Drop by the unusual Angel Oak tree if you're around the McDonald's and Piggly Wiggly area off Maybrook Rd. It's free, but on a dirt road and closes at night. The large beach house across the street from the main pool complex looks impressive but seems very formal and underused. Spent about two minutes there. Hints: Patriot's Point is a must, especially with kids old enough to climb the ships' stairs and ladders. Liked the location of Sealoft Villas where we stayed since it was close enough for an easy bike ride or very short drive to pool complex.
