Editor’s Itin­er­ary

Where Charleston - - Contents -

Spend some beach time and learn some history, too, dur­ing a day on Sul­li­van’s Is­land.

An un­spoiled beach, mil­i­tary history, rub­bing el­bows with the spir­its of Edgar Allan Poe: these all are rea­sons to spend a day at Sul­li­van’s Is­land, which is tucked be­tween Mount Pleas­ant and Isle of Palms along the shores of the At­lantic. Op­er­ated by the Town of Sul­li­van’s Is­land, the beach is the area’s most na­tive with no re­strooms or showers (and, with no life­guards, visi­tors must be mind­ful of rip tides and sand­bars). Mil­i­tary history comes alive at Fort Moul­trie, where Poe him­self served in the army in the 1820s; a bar on the is­land is named in his honor.
