Isle of Palms is a barrier island with everything. There’s lush vegetation, from age-old live oaks to the flowering crepe myrtles and oleanders. For the sports-minded, there’s golf, great fishing, crabbing and shrimping. Getting around the island is easy, with most roads having marked bike paths for safety. Bicycle and rollerblade rentals are available on the island.
Live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss are around every corner and crepe myrtles, oleanders, and azaleas are like a scene from a painting. Speaking of, take a painting class, grab a glass of wine and relax here because life is simple on the Isle of Palms. In fact, if you are over 65 you can take a FREE painting class at the local college.
