There’s been ever-increasing national interest in the charm of the South Carolina Lowcountry, with our hometown Beaufort consistently making headlines. Our latest accolade comes from none other than USA Today – Hunting Island’s beach, just 25 minutes from Celadon, was declared to be #2 in the 2016 USA Today “10 Best” Readers’ Choice Awards. During the last two weeks of voting time, the #1 spot swapped five times between Hunting Island and the Gulf Island National Seashore in Pensacola, Florida, which eventually kept the #1 spot.
The Lowcountry area in general did exceptionally well in the poll. Folly Beach (in Charleston) reached #4 ranking, Myrtle Beach came in just below in the #5 spot, and Coligny Beach (in nearby Hilton Head) took the #9 rank. Kiawah Island’s Beachwalker Beach was nominated, but did not reach top 10 rank. Folly Beach and Beachwalker Beach are located within a two-hour drive of Celadon. Coligny Beach is even closer to home, about 45 minutes from Celadon.
Living on the coast means the ocean is never far away. Schedule your visit to Celadon soon so we can show you everything the Beaufort area has on offer. Bring your beach chair!
