Place: Beachwalker County Park, Kiawah, SC. (1 Beachwalker Dr, Johns Island, SC near Charleston).
Distance from Charlotte: A little over 3 hours.
Description: These long stretches of beach are extremely dog friendly. I was able run around without a leash and play chuck-it in the sand and surf. The “people” part of the beach requires dogs to be leashed, but that portion is just the small initial entrance part. Be sure to bring some sort of shade for me and a tie-down stake works well to tether naughty dogs like me down. It was an easy day trip from Charlotte.
I served as the official beach welcome committee, self-appointed, and greeted every person and dog that passed our way. After watching M and P wade around in the water, I finally figured out how to jump the waves and swim around a bit.
One salty dog = best day ever.
