EASY GETAWAY FROM: Atlanta; Baltimore; Charlotte, N.C.; Chicago; Detroit; Miami; Nashville; New York; Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.

WHAT YOU GET A golfer’s paradise, bike trails, several miles of beaches.

WHY NOW Average daytime temperatures are in the high 60s and low 70s, ideal weather for golf, tennis, biking, birding or strolls on the beach — which is what this quiet barrier island about 20 miles south of Charleston, S.C., is all about. While much of the tiny resort community belongs to the private Kiawah Island Golf Resort, 11 miles of beach is open to the public at Beachwalker Park. If you don’t want to stay at the resort, there are plenty of rentals available ranging from golf course condos to beachfront homes. Southwest Airlines began flights to Charleston this month from Baltimore, Chicago, Nashville and Houston.
