Say what you will about Daniel Island — it’s a manicured wasteland of sameness and nouveau riche snobbery with less soul than a PR agent who claims to have one — but it’s one of the better places around to take a jog. With walking and running trails snaking through the neighborhoods (some through woodland areas, some over marshes) and nearly empty sidewalks along the main roads, Daniel Island is a peaceful, easy place to get your cardio on. Oh, and if it’s a night when the bad boys and girls at Bishop England face off against the punks at Porter-Gaud, you might see a turf-war beat-down on a street corner. It’s funny because it happened.
