Vacation Inspirations: Charleston, SC – Woodrow Testimonial Part 1

Charles and Lillie Woodrow of Hopkins, South Carolina, have been members of Vacation Inspirations for two years but decided to take their first trip to Europe only last year.

“We had a good experience, so we booked another vacation this year through Vacation Inspirations and headed to Hawaii,” said Charles Woodrow. “While we won’t travel as far from home next time, we will definitely utilize our membership with Vacation Inspirations again.”

A 15-day vacation to the Hawaii Islands is a dream vacation for many, and it is definitely one the Woodrow’s won’t forget any time soon.

“We were on a cruise line visiting some of the islands when the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan,” Charles said. “It was incredible, but we were kept informed of what was happening the entire time. The cruise line took us out to sea about 25 miles to avoid getting hit ourselves. It was definitely a new and once-in-a-lifetime experience for all of us.”

Mount Pleasant, SC: A Great Place to Live

Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, is only minutes northeast of Charleston and is also a quick trip from Daniel Island, Sullivan’s Island and the Isle of Palms. Local beaches and upscale communities draw those looking for the convenience and style of living Mount Pleasant offers.

Mount Pleasant was little more than a small town until well into the 20th century, populated in part by Charlestonians wealthy enough to afford summer homes on the other side of the Cooper River.

Mount Pleasant’s growing population supports an ever-expanding array of dining, shopping and entertainment opportunities. The state-of-the-art Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge has linked Mount Pleasant with Charleston since 2005, and extensive improvements are currently underway on Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant.


For those looking for a new place to call home, Mount Pleasant has numerous communities offering wonderful features, amenities and conveniences that make East Cooper one of the area’s most desirable places to live.

The Ponds of Summerville, SC (Part 2)

“Our level of community is one that Dorchester County has never seen,” Davis explained. “Many other areas are subdivisions, while we are a master-planned community. The amenities were put in place before the first homes were sold.”

Among the Ponds’ amenities are access to membership in the on-site YMCA, a 25-meter saltwater pool, the restored 1830s farmhouse that is part of the community center, five parks, two 20-acre ponds, an Amphitheatre and a 20-mile trail system.

We at Greenwood are very careful to be good stewards of the property and to give people more than what they expect. We can go on forever about this very special place. We appreciate the opportunity to develop this property in a sustainable way so people can always enjoy it. It is a unique situation.

The Ponds of Summerville, SC

The Ashley is more than just a river to the residents of South Carolina’s Lowcountry. Because of its length and innate beauty and the sense of direction it provides, it is more like a gift of Nature. The Ponds, a spectacular 2,000-acre community in Summerville, is at the headwaters of this historic river, at Schulz’s Lake.

“We are the highest point of navigation,” said an enthusiastic John Morgan, community manager at The Ponds. “This is the beginning of the Ashley River.”

The Ponds has more to offer than an excellent location and an eternal connection to one of South Carolina’s most picturesque bodies of water.

“We have a diverse range of multifamily homes, town homes and single-family homes that are blended together like a true Southern town. They aren’t sectioned off like most places you find today,” Morgan explained. “The Ponds is definitely a place where you can live, work and play.”
