Sullivan’s Island

History lovers won’t want to miss touring Fort Moultrie, the series of citadels on Sullivan’s Island where the victory over the British Navy took place on June 28, 1776. Edgar Allan Poe was also stationed here as a US Army private in 1827. History aside, there’s plenty of beachy things to do here, like stand up paddleboarding and embarking on a fishing charter.
