The Town of James Island is a beautiful, unique island in South Carolina with a rich history and bright future. Nestled by the deep blue waters of the Charleston Harbor and the meandering Stono and Folly Rivers, James Island boasts scenic marsh views and a plethora of majestic trees. Once covered in farmland, James Island is now primarily a residential community that has somehow managed to protect that small-town, rural feel its residents and visitors know and enjoy. One of the original "bedroom communities" of the Charleston area, it's not hard to see why so many want to call James Island home. Make sure to check out Bowen's Island if you're looking for fresh Low Country seafood. If easy access to downtown Charleston and Folly Beach is important to the lifestyle that you're looking for, James Island might be right up your alley. From historic homes circa pre civil war to modern marsh front homes, you have a lot of great options to choose from on James Island!
