Weekend escaping to Kiawah Island, South Carolina

Kiawah Island is one of South Carolina’s great secrets: a beautiful, quiet beach town surrounded by nature!

Earlier this summer, Logan and me escaped life for a long weekend.

In the brief window between graduating law school and starting bar prep, I knew we needed a quick getaway. Something relaxing, rejuvenating, and not stressful to plan or involving too much travel.

We grabbed Logan’s best friend Taylor & wife Savanah for a beach weekend in Kiawah Island, South Carolina! Taylor & Savanah are some of our favorite people ever, and awesome travel friends! It’s almost embarrassing how little we see of them even though we live only 3 hours away – life gets so full. But this little weekend made up for lost time!

Kiawah has great bike paths everywhere. We spent hours exploring the island on wheels!

Even with the cloudy weather, it was beautiful!

Taylor was our alligator expert, and we managed to find a whole bunch of them in various ponds around the island!

I don’t know how I’d feel to wake up with one of these in my front yard though. Yikes.

Our first day was cloudy, but we still spent most of the day outside with our bikes or on the beach. Don’t you love friend who you can relax with and “do nothing” with all weekend?

Clouds didn’t rule the weekend, though. We managed to get some bright sunny days too! After a gorgeous day at the beach, we drove north to Charleston for some wandering back streets and a seafood dinner.

There’s something captivating about meandering through old cities. History around every corner, and back streets that let you step back in time.

The clouds glowed as the sun set over the city.

The next morning we had to leave, but not before one last biking excursion. Look at that sunshine!
