South Carolina is known for its beaches. Part of the reason why they are so popular is due to barrier islands. This small chain of islands, called the Sea Islands, covers about half the coastline of South Carolina and stretches into Georgia and Florida too.
These Sea Islands have been inhabited for hundreds of years, first by the native peoples of the Edisto tribe and later on by settlers and their slaves in plantations. This area of the country also saw heavy fighting during the Civil War in the 1860s.
To say Edisto Island and the other Sea Islands are home to a lot of history is an understatement to be sure!
Today, Edisto Island is a trendy tourist destination for both native South Carolinians and visitors from all over the world.
