Edisto Reviews

My experience on Edisto is awesome. I grew up on Edisto as I went to school there. It's a great place to live, not to mention the beach that's less than 10 minutes away. Edisto is like a family. Many people bond as they get together for cook outs or events. What I like about Edisto is that you develop that feeling of togetherness knowing that someone has your back. What I'd like to change about Edisto is the limited amount of stores and restaurants. There are only a few and people like their variety of places they like to go.

Small town, with a beautiful, peaceful atmosphere. It is the best place to come and relax. Friendly people everywhere you go. Great always fresh seafood.
What I love the most about Edisto is it's a very peaceful place not a lot of crime in this area. Edisto is known for its popularity of seafood restaurants.
