We are heading for our seventh trip to HHI in a couple of weeks, and my husband and I (we're in our 50s) are looking for something out-of-the-ordinary to do. We've done all the usual things, including Daufuskie Island (our first time there was in 1985 with NO development!), and are looking for something different. We stay in Sea Pines, so we've done just about everything there. Maybe an eco-tour? Would prefer one for adults.
How can I get free brochures to plan our trip in November? I don't want to miss any great sites in Hilton Head area plus, Savannah area.
Where can I find blue crab live or steamed at Hilton Head Island?
Which bicycle rental shops are the best in Hilton Head and which ones that you had a bad experience with?
Also which kayak outfitters are the best?
Appreciate any info that you can supply.
We are a beach vacation family and normally spend summers on beaches in FL or AL. We want to travel to Hilton Head this summer. Can you recommend a condo/town home that is near the beach and not pricey? Which areas would be preferred for families that like to play games on beach or just read a book? Any restaurants to recommend and other things to do/see would be greatly appreciated! (We will travel with our 13 and 20 yr old girls.)
Best Beach and area with children at HHI?
Last year my miniature schnauzer met his first rattlesnake in bushes close to a sidewalk, he was smart enough to heed the warning rattle and immediately back off. We didn't have a clue the snake was there until my dog disturbed it. What recommendations to you have to keep inquisitive dogs away from poisonous snakes in the Hilton Head area?
Is the water too cold for Stand Up Paddle Boarding in October? Heading to HHI this weekend.
can you walk from palmetto dunes to the airport by beach.? i have been before but never as far round as that.we are arriving at night and going back to the airport in the morning to pick up hire car as they are shut when we arrive and thought as we are not strangers to long walks we thought it would be nice to walk the beach on our first morning killing two birds with one stone
We are currently staying in shipyard plantation until the day before Easter. I would love to know where the best places to view dolphins are at and if they're best seen at high tide or lower. We will be taking a dolphin cruise near the end of our stay but we'd all love to view them sooner! Thank you all.
I will be visiting next summer with my family. We have a 5yr old who has to eat a gluten free diet. Is there any restaurants that offer a gluten free menus for him.
I will be staying at the Marriot Harbour Club at Harbour Town towards the end of November 2010 and would like to know places to see, entertainment and weather.
Where in Hilton Head is there a club that allows 18+ on certain nights? I have friends that aren't 21 and we all wanna go out and dance and stuff...but can't find a place to go that allows 18 years and up! PLEASE HELP!!!
Looking for an inexpensive place to stay on Hilton Head. We have about ten people in our group, but we don't need beds for everyone. We don't mind sleeping on the floor, couch, whatever, if it will save some money. I was thinking a house or condo rental would be best so we can have access to a kitchen. We are a bunch of 30 year old ladies, no kids, no pets - just celebrating our 30th birthdays with a trip to Hilton Head. We are looking at four nights in June 2010.
I know alot of renatls are concerned with having more people stay than there are available beds, but beds for 10 people gets pretty pricey!! Maybe an independent homeowner who won't be home for a weekend in June and wouldn't mind renting their place to a bunch of very responsible former Girl Scouts?
Anyone know a place like that to rent? I would offer to house swap, if anyone is interested in coming to Columbus, Ohio. :)
Are there limitations to purchasing alcohol on Sundays on HHI?
My family and I are vacationing in Hilton Head Island for the first time this July. We enjoy blue crabs and would like to know if there is anyplace on the island where we can buy them by the bushel (alive or steamed). Thanks!
We are planning on visiting Hilton Head in mid-march. Is it going to be possible to see dolphin's at this time of the year? If yes, what is the best way to see them?
My wife and I plan to stay at a time share the week of November 3 and use HHI as our base of operations to visit both Charleston and Savannah FOR THE FIRST TIME FOR ALL THREE PLACES. We plan to book one night at a Charleston hotel and stay over, stretching our visit to two consecutive days. (Holiday Inn sounds great--Trip Advisor)
We would like to cut down on our driving after that excursion. Are there any sailings directly from HHI to Savannah? I know there's a ferry to another island. How about Savannah? Or, should we also plan to stay over one night in Savannah?
Many thanks for taking the time to read this and for any tips you can give us.
I am going to be at Hilton Head Island soon and I am looking for a less crowded place on the beach. I am willing to walk or bike a few miles to do this as well. I am going to stay at the Comfort Inn. I know there are 4 public access sites to the beach and was thinking about trying to bike in between two access points. Do you think this would work?
We are going to be in HHI this Sun 4/29 thru Wed. 5/2 on a golf/eating/nightlife trip. We are from Chicago. It is a business trip (ha ha ha). We are entertaining clients who like to party! Any suggestions?
We are staying at the Port Royal Plantation near the Westin.
I hear everything closes early is that true?
Thanks - Jim
I've seen several comments about riding bicycles. Are there places to rent? If so, where, and what are the average rates?
My wife and I will be taking a vacation with our 1 year old (his first real trip) in April, and are considering going to either Kiawah Island or Hilton Head Island. We haven't been to either location and have heard pros/cons for both places but would like to hear the opinions of others who have been to both places...
Has anyone paricipated in the Taste of Gullah or Gullah Celebration Art and Food Expo? Any recommendations? We'll be on HH from 2/10 to 2/18.
Any recommendations for fly fishing (without guides) on or around the island. I will be there for the month of February and do not have a boat...Thank you...
Hi, i'm new here. Searching around for awesome things to do down in Hilton Head this May. Three girls coming from detroit... we're looking for a lot of night life. Also we loves these hauntings we keep hearing about. Like the Lands End Light aka Frog More Light????... Also how's the weather usually down there in May? Is the ocean warm enough to swim? A lot of people on the beach during the day????
I was there about a month ago and found a darling pair of shoes at a women's shop, I believe the name was Currents?? Anyway, I didn't buy them at that time, but would like to have them. How can I contact them and order the shoes to be sent to me?
Anyone have any recommendation for dog boarding on the island? I wouldn't mind bringing my pooch down there.
I'm planning a trip to HHI later in the summer and need some advice as where to stay. Currently I'm looking at the Hilton Head Grand Hotel & Suites and also the Hilton Head Marriott Beach and Golf Resort. Can you give me any advice on either of these two places or recommend something else? I prefer hotel style accommodations rather than renting a villa, etc.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me,
We'll be traveling to HH for the first time. We're looking for the local pub where we can get a local feel and good food. Nothing fancy. Only requirements - good food, good beer and maybe a tv or two. Any suggestions?
