One of the Charleston metropolitan area's island communities, Isle of Palms, SC, is a town where the beauty of nature and the relaxation of a resort town come together. It's located along a strip of barrier islands that extends from the mouth of Charleston Harbor up along the coast. It's easy to access through Mount Pleasant along South Carolina 517, the Isle of Palms Connector. Residents and visitors can also access their homes via SC-703 which runs through Mount Pleasant and Sullivan's Island after branching from US 17 at the Arthur Ravenel, Jr., Bridge. There are plenty of everyday necessities right in town, along with some local businesses and shopping. However, one of the reasons that people are attracted to the island is that it's a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown Charleston. (read more about living in Isle of Palms)
