Any Events Scheduled for First Week of March?

by sgoet

We are flying in the HH Airport at about 11 PM on March 4 for a week. I'm presuming they have taxi service. We are hoping not everything is closed down for the winter. Are there any events on or around the Island during that week? We would like to take a day trip to Savannah. If you had to choose between Beaufort and Charleston for a day trip, which would you pick? (We like Civil War history) The rest of the time we would like to stay on the island to ride bikes, kayak, hike.

RE: Any Events Scheduled for First Week of March?

I will answer may own question, as I have now returned from my visit. The airport does have taxi service. Fares are reasonable and a fixed price to certain destinations/zones of the island. The only event of note is the Annual Winefest, which is the biggest outdoor tented wine tasting on the east coast. This event was on our last day of the visit - over 1000 wines. Other than that, the Island was pretty quiet. Later in the month there are other events in an around Hilton Head. The nation's 2nd largest St. Pat's celebration is in Savannah (who would have guessed?). The Savannah Music Festival begins March 17. There are also some home tours in H.H. and of historic homes in Savannah in the last week of March. Savannah is a 45 minute drive (off-peak) and one of the most beautiful cities to walk around in that I have ever visited. We rode bikes, hiked, fished (too early to catch anything from shore) and kayaked, so we didn't have time for any other off-island day trips. We ate alot. The best key-lime pie was at a little cafe in Shelter Cove marina (Parrot's Cove Cafe). Best all around meal (value and food) was at Il Carpaccio at Pineland Station Shopping Center. We will definitely return to Hilton Head for another stay - we were very impressed.

Travel Tips for Hilton Head Island

SUN SCREEN IS A MUST!!

by CristinaMIA

Make sure to take along some form of sun protection. I am fairly dark complected and using an SPF of 50, I still managed to get a little pink. You don't want to spend your vacation sore and out of the sun so make sure you bring protection!

The Island's original seafood house

by doolemma about Hudson's on the Docks.

Hudson's is said to be the oldest seafood house on the island. It's been there for more than thirty years. Therefore they must be serving good food. The fishing and shrimping boats pull right up to the docks so you know your getting fresh fish. The sunsets are beautiful.You can also make arrangements right next door at Tammy Jane's, to go out on one of the boats (about $40.00) and share in the catch. The oyster poor-boy was as good as you will get in New Orleans. Also, try the crabmeat stuffed jumbo shrimp.

The big activities are golf...

by bhodgson

The big activities are golf and tennis. For the other folks there is miniature golf, biking and hanging out on the beach.

You also must go to the fudge shoppe in Coligny plaza which is at the beach end of Pope Ave. I really like the stores in Coligny shopping area because they have some character and the people in the shops are very friendly like in a small town. This area is one of the older areas on the Head in between Sea Pines and Shipyard Plantations.
