Daufuskie Island, South Carolina

Life moves blissfully slowly on this five-mile island just a 30-minute ferry ride from Savannah, Georgia. There are no grocery stores or traffic lights. Instead, you can rent bikes or golf carts to go from the shell-covered beaches to the golf course to the dock, where everyone watches the sunset with a glass of sweet tea vodka and lemonade in hand.

Sure, there’s kayaking alongside dolphins and horseback riding under mossy oaks—but the best activity of all may be napping in a waterside hammock.
