Hilton Head In the Winter

by tripholic

We are travelling to Hilton Head at the end of January and we are wondering what to expect at this season of the year. I am hoping for clear warm days with perhaps fog in the morning. We plan to play golf so hope that it isn't too cool at this time of the year. Any information about this time of the year in Hilton Head would be most appreciated.
Thanks

SC in the wintertime is still kind of mild. Every once in a while they have a cold snap, but it normally doesn't last for more than a few days, and normally doesn't get below 30 degrees F. Normally it will be in the 60's during the day in January, and sometimes the 50's. As for fog on the beach, I'm not quite sure, I think it depends on the area you're in. Hope that helps you. Take care.

Thank you for the info on Hilton Head. Now that Christmas is over I am really getting excited to go on holidays. Thanks to finding this web site I am able to plan ahead. There seems to be plenty of things to do as well as golf. We will try the kayaking for sure. Can't wait to have grits....

Currently it's around 70F. Most likely it will be somewhat colder when you arrive but nothing too bad . Fog rarely.

There's other boat type tours available, simple cruises and off shore fishing. I'm sure the resorts have plenty of information about them.

No shortage of places to eat. Crazy Crab, Old Oyster Factory seems to be favorites. Some guys at work swear by a small hole in the wall called the Sea Shack (more of a lunch thing) off of Pope Ave, but I can neither confirm or deny this :)

Most of the nicer home areas are in gated plantations. Most of them do not let visitors drive around unless heading to a specific area such as a golf course, club house, etc. Except for Sea Pines Plantation. If you want to view some of the homes and scenery at a plantaion, head there. It's a $5.00 charge at their gate. In Sea Pines is Harbor Town...Light House, Shops, Restarants, etc.

If you're the type that likes to drive around "house wishing", I'd say get into Wexford if at all possible.

Near-by is Beaufort a nice small town. About an hour dirve away. Historic type homes located in the downtown area. Dock Sides and The Steamers are two nice restarants in that area. Plenty of Golf Courses there as well. Home of the Marine Corps Parris Island...and the Air Station.

Traffic wise Highway 278 can get bad between 4 and 6 PM M-F off island. And also between 8 and 10AM M-F on island. If you do plan on heading to Beaufort or near-by Savannah, GA I'd try to schedule the travel time around that time frame. 278 is the only way on or off island. If you take 278 bypass to get to the south end it will be a dollar toll. You get to the same place by staying on 278 business, just a bit more time and more stop lights involved *shrug*

On Island shopping consists of a number of shopping plazas/villages. One Mall, Shelter Cove Mall, nothing spectacular, you'd find better tourist shopping at the smaller local plazas located through out Hilton Head. A few of the major ones are Coligny Plaza/Circle The Village at Wexford, Pineland.

Travel Tips for Hilton Head Island

Golf, Golf & More Golf!!! - Off Island

by aceensor

There are a variety of spectacular golf courses just off the main island of Hilton Head, and tend to be less pricey. Here are a few and I'll suggest going to the main website for directions to each:

Rose Hills
Old Carolina *
Old South *
* There is a combo special for these - see the website for details. Each golfer MUST have his / her own set of clubs, and if you don't own a set, they can be rented at most courses. For time sake, most courses have carts included in their fees and it's encouraged to use them. Appropriate attire is also a must - no jeans, tee shirts, cut-offs, etc. Shirts must have sleeves and collars and casual or dress shorts are suggested.

Don't feed the gators!!

Lost in the Dark

by grandmaR about The Smokehouse

We had dinner at the Smokehouse - it was across the street from our condo, but we had a bit of difficulty getting there because Bob did not think that he could go into the driveway directly across from us and instead we ended up wandering around in the dark until we came out on the same street again.

We had to wait a little while for a table. While we were waiting the man in front of me was discussing his golf game that day. He said there was a foursome of women in front of him, which was playing slowly and they stayed together and talked the whole time (i.e. they didn't each go to their ball to play it, but went to the first ball in a group etc.). He said they were as rude as they could be, but he didn't want to say anything to them because he didn't know who they might be. I thought this was strange. I had a bowl of Brunswick stew and the pulled pork sandwich. Other possible soups were Smokehouse chili and chicken and corn soup. All the soups were $3.95. Several salads were also available.

Other sandwiches included Sliced or Chopped Beef Brisket, Smoked Turkey & Bacon, Memphis Cheese Steak, Fried Catfish, and Spicy Smoked Sausage. All the sandwiches were served with French Fries, and they all cost between $5.95 and $6.95

Bob had a half bbq chicken, and he took the breast of the chicken home for lunch. All the Smokehouse Specialties are served with a choice of two sides. Bob got red rice and cole slaw, and gave me the cole slaw and ate my fries. The price on the picture of his chicken is for a chicken breast alone, and not for a half chicken.

Other specialies included Baby Back Ribs (full $20.95/half $11.95), Pulled Pork BBQ Plate ($9.95), Texas Brisket Plate ($11.95), Smoked Half Chicken ($10.95), Grilled Pork Chop($13.95), Fried Catfish ($11.95), BBQ Shrimp or Fried Shrimp (both $15.95), Kansas Strip ($17.95) and several combos such as Chcken and Ribs $13.95, Shrimp and Ribs ($14.95), Pulled Pork and Ribs ($13.95) and the Smokehouse Plate which was pulled pork, sliced beef brisket, smoked chicken and ribs for $16.95.

Sides choices in addition to red rice, cole slaw and fries included corn on the cob, potato salad, mac-n-cheese, baked potato and grilled veggies (pepper, onions, zucchini and squash). Most of these were $1.50 to $2.00, but the grilled veggies were $2.50.

The total was $25.04 including tip.

"Sunrise Over the Ocean"

The ocean at Hilton Head is not blue like the Carribean or Hawaii, but always relaxing to listen to the waves and watch the sunrise.

"Dolphins in The Sound"

On the mainland side of the island, there is a Sound. All the marina's are usually found around this side of the island protected from the weather. Dolphins are abundant in the sound and you can see them from the docks. Kayak's are available for day rental so you can try to cruise around and see lot's of wildlife and dolphins. Here's a picture of some viewing from a dock at a marina. This was a group of six with two baby's.

"The Marina at Habour Town, Sea Pines Area"

This is an exclusive area of the island. There is a beautiful marina there with spectacular boats, nice resteraunts and shops. Daily tours from dolphin watching to Eco tours and sailing. There's also a day trip to an adjacent island that has no cars and is inhibited by people living there like they did a hindred years ago.
