Traveling with the Grandpops

We're traveling with our two grandfathers, both in their early 80s. What in the world can we do on Hilton Head? They don't golf.

    I used to live there last summer, so I'll try to be helpful!

    Well, it shouldn't be a problem since it's a nice, quiet place with amazing nature. Something like walks on the beach which is miles and miles long, or a walk over the island could be interesting. Definitely visiting Harbor Town, it's really nice. Sunset watching on cruises must be nice. But, yeah, there's generally not much to do, it's great destination to visit, really peaceful with people saying Hi to strangers in the street, but other than maybe nice restaurants like "The Coast", which is just gorgeous, or maybe restaurants in South Marina, "The Wreck of the Salty Dog" peaceful restaurant with an amazing on the water view, or more family-like The Salty Dog Cafe... I think personally it could be great to relax there for them, and it's better to visit of season, avoid Jun, July... September is the greatest!

    And maybe organizing trips around the island, definitely it would be interesting for them to visit Savannah and all the historic features there, it's really not far away, and also, and it may even be better for a nice day trip for them- a visit to Charleston, it's a small picturesque city, definitely interesting for elderly people.

    I hope I have helped!

    Do they play bridge? I know it's a big thing there and they can go to the Port Royal Plaza Shopping Center where a bridge group meets on Saturdays (my great uncle loves this!). They might also like the Coastal Discovery Museum.

    Take them to the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn. They'll love it... and you might, too.

    You could also take them at low tide to the beach for some beach combing. The Northern shore near Port Royal Sound is a great place to find many kinds of shells.

    There is an actual real lighthouse on Hilton Head Island on the Arthur Hills Golf Course at Palmetto Dunes Leamington Lighthouse Unfortunately it is in bad shape and is on the endangered list. The one at Harbour Town is really an advertising sign for the marina and is not and never has been an aid to navigation.

    If one does not golf, bike, play tennis, shop, or beach there's not a lot to do on Hilton Head besides eat. I do recommend the Coastal Discovery Museum The museum also has various tours (boat and land like a segway tour) depending on the season. If they are interested in wildlife Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge is close by. The interesting little town of Bluffton is right next to Hilton Head

    There are several nearby places for a day-trip. Daufuskie Island which is only accessed by boat.

    Savannah has already been mentioned. You can take a city tour on one of those trolleys. Fort Pulaski National Monument is just outside Savannah. Thunderbolt has the famous Bonaventure Cemetery immortalized in best-selling "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." Tybee Island has a fort and a lighthouse.

    In the other direction is Beaufort which has a historic homes tour of the Antebellum mansions, a museum, a Spanish Moss walking trail and some nice places to eat. Near there is Hunting Island State Park Beach which has a lighthouse and a little museum. I haven't spent much time there but Port Royal is also in that vicinity.
