The list of nine islands — written by Adrienne Jordan and published online last week by the national lifestyle magazine — touts Daufuskie’s local artisans, top-of-the-line golf facilities, and outdoor activities such as horseback riding.
The other vacation-worthy American islands included on list were: Amelia Island, Fla.; Sea Island, Ga.; Antelope Island State Park, Utah; Brunswick Islands, N.C.; Newport Island, R.I; Padre Island, Texas; South Bass Island, Ohio; and San Juan Islands, Wash.
Never miss a local story.
The magazine does not specify how the list was compiled or what criteria was used to decide which islands made the cut.
Daufuskie Island has been attracting quite a bit of attention from national publications in recent months.
Last month, the “up and downs of the market” for homes on Daufuskie Island were the subject of a story written by Nancy Keates and published by the Wall Street Journal.
Also in July, Condé Nast Traveler, a luxury travel and lifestyle magazine, named Daufuskie Island one of the country’s most underrated islands.
