Magic Island

Magic Island, located between the Kanawha River and Charleston’s West Side, provides everyone with the chance to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Even though it is actually connected to the mainland, Magic Island may give you the feeling that you are indeed at the beach. The sandy area towards the eastern most tip of the park is known unofficially as Rockaway Beach to many of the local park regulars. The piece of land serves as a public park for the city, featuring sand volleyball courts, and walking track, and numerous picnic areas. The island gained its name due to the rise and fall of the river level in the Kanawha, which caused the island to slip underwater, as if by "magic". Magic Island also hosts Family Movie Night throughout the summer months. Check out local listings in your paper to see what movies and when show times are happening.

The Holiday Inn is just around 10 minutes away from Magic Island. If you are in the Charleston area on business or vacation it is a great place for you and your family to check out. Go running or walking with those you care about, or take the family to see a movie, there are numerous options at Magic Island.
