Wow. Not even sure Im gonna bother with that battle. Seriously Coatalbum?
Yea, if you like spending money and status Charleston (downtown) is for you, If you are a normal , casual person choose Wilmington or Myrtle. Understand?

For me, it's the beauty & peace of the place. Charleston's beaches give me the most of what I'm looking for.
I am glad you asked Joyeaux,

Here is what attracts me. I grew up all my life on the coast. So, I am very thankful for the beautiful creation (ocean, rivers ). I love salt water areas. Yes, they are all beaches, but for example the beach can be more than just the water.
1. The waves , since I surf, make or break a local area.
2. The people there, Is it a young crowd, music playing, older crowd, certainly different atmospheres with different beaches
3. Are there resturants on the beach? A place to go up to and sit and eat or drink and look out at the water and beach. I love this. Are there multiple oceanfront places to do this. Music playing , maybe even a band.
For Jersey Girl, the beach she will like depends on the person she is.

For me:
IOP : family beach, pretty cool beach, medium waves when there are waves
Sullivan's Beach: very boring, worst beach in Charleston, never go there
no waves
Folly: the best beach in Charleston for my interests, A few places on the beach you can go to, younger people and families, and the best waves when we have them. Prefer to go east or west streets at Folly, and not to the Tides (Old Holiday Inn) Tourist Central
Kiawah- Family, tourist beach, far out from Charleston, but nice and clean, not really a spot for waves

I understand...you really didn't need to repeat yourself. So "normal" people don't spend money on nice things? I'm "normal" and "casual" and I like nice things and shopping. I could care less about status. Status does absolutely nothing for me. Understand?

I am enjoying this thread and was glad to give a different perspective on local beaches for Jersey Girl.

I have to keep an open mind an understand some people like Sullivan's Island Beach. It is quiet , with no waves, and not much happening, but I am glad you all like to go there. I know others (particularly women that like it there).

I also want to apoligize to klysik for stating normal people would not be shopping in Charleston, I understand normal people can like nice things and shopping and not care about status. I understand status does nothing for you. So, how do you enjoy living with all the rich people on Daniel Island?

"Rich people" is all relative coastalbum. But I can tell that you are bitter about it. Truth be told, I had to move my family there to help take care of my bedridden late stage dementia father that needs 24-hr care from myself and hospice. Amazing that you are shallow enough to put a "label" on someone because they have a certain address. My address has nothing to do with status, so stop ranting like an idiot because right now I'm going to bet this forum thinks you're one.

Klysik, I was joking about Daniel Island. I am sorry you had to go there for your father. I will say a prayer for him.
See I respond with kindness.
Regards,
Coastalbum
