With temperatures averaging in the high 60’s to low 80’s during Spring in Charleston, this is a perfect time of year to take the family for a stroll to the Daniel Island Waterfront Park. There you’ll find picnic tables, swings overlooking stunning views of the Wando River, and a pier for fishing and crabbing. Winding forested trails provide a serene space to run, walk, or bike.
Perhaps one of the finest attributes of Daniel Island is its proximity to some of the most gorgeous beaches in the country.

And for locals, there is no better time than the Spring to take advantage of all the beach has to offer.
