One of America’s most beautifully preserved historic treasures, Charleston, South Carolina encompasses a 300-year heritage. This Colonial port city features cobblestone streets, pre-Revolutionary War historic buildings, museums, classic arts venues, fine restaurants, shops and exciting nightclubs.
In addition to sightseeing, shopping and dining, visitors to Charleston discover that recreation comes in two forms: land and water. On land, you can play world-famous golf and tennis. In the water, you can fish, surf, kayak, ski or slide. Perhaps no other resort in this Southern playground does both better than the Wild Dunes Resort.

Wild Dunes Resort is located on the northern tip of the Isle of Palms, a barrier island off South Carolina that’s just 30 minutes from the charm and grace of historic Charleston.
