There is so much to do on Hilton Head Island, you probably won’t want to leave; but, if you are staying a while and would like a change of pace, we suggest you take a day trip to one of the following great locations:
- Old Town Bluffton is a beautiful place that is enjoying a renaissance after being neglected for many years. There are numerous art galleries in this small town and It is home to many festivals and other events. There is also a great Farmer’s Market every Thursday afternoon where you can find fresh food to cook in our gourmet kitchen. If you don’t feel like cooking there are a lot of great restaurants here too. Some of them are newly opened branches of Hilton Head Island restaurants, but our favorite is the older Cahill’s Market which is a little more off the beaten track. It serves fresh grown produce and wonderful big breakfasts and lunches. My husbands favorite is a big plate of lightly battered and fried chicken livers. I know that sounds weird but they really are melt-in-your-mouth tender.
- Dafauskie Island,
- Savannah – This historic town is home to many old homes and beautiful gardens as anyone who has seen the movie “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” can tell you. It is also home to many great restaurants. We particularly like The Cotton Exchange Tavern on River Street and The Olde Pink House Restaurant.
