A barrier island with lots of openings for wildlife

If you wander on the westward side of this barrier island, you'll be amazed at the maze of inlets, bays, and waterways. On the Atlantic side you'll find out why this straight strip of coast may be why Charleston Locals refer to it as the "Edge of America."
