All about the golf courses
I would mostly suggest this trip to an avid golfer. As I said before I was pretty much still a kid when I was there, so other than the beach and the beachside bar (I had just turned 21), there wasn't much else to do, other than mini golf (as I'm not a regular golfer). My aunt and uncle have briefed us on the golfing as my uncle is an avid golfer. I loved the beach and the beachside bar. We stayed at a family friend's time share condominium as a favor owed to my dad.

A few gems
If you enjoy bargain hunting, then here a few tips for you. The Eclectic Collection on arrow road is in my oppinion one of the island's best kept secrets. Full of all sorts of decorative items and treasures.
The Habitat for Humanity sells donated furniture and decoration at the Bluffton warehouse. Located on Route 46 in Bluffton, a 30 minute drive from the island.
Off Island Thrift in Bluffton offers second-hand clothing and household items for sale, proceeds are donated to cancer research.

If you want to find anything on the island with ease I suggest you go to the visitors center and museum first to get maps and free coupons for discounts all over the island. You can get a free packet called Celebration visitors card at the museum or
This is a no clip coupon card, you can get 10% to 20% off and phone numbers of many store and points of interest.
Bikes, Boating and Beaches (plus Golf and Tennis)
Except for our first trip, when we stayed at the Outdoor Resorts for one night, we've gone from Beaufort to Thunderbolt on each trip on the ICW.
So in 2005, we stopped by Hilton Head for a week when we were traveling by car. The main Hilton Head activities at this time of year (winter) are biking, tennis, and golf. None of those were of interest to us, but I wanted to see something of the island other than what we saw at the marina.
Hilton Head has been inhabited as early as 10,000 B.C.
It got its name when in 1663, it was surveyed by William Hilton, an English sea captain, sailing from Barbados. Hilton claimed it for the British crown, and named it for himself .. Hilton's Headland.
