    • first family trip to Hilton Head

      by SEHS Online Now Mar 25, 2014 at 9:47 AM

      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.)

      poisonous snakes

      by RonM56 Online Now Feb 15, 2014 at 12:13 PM

      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?

      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.

      Big Group - where to stay Cheap!

      by kateylou Online Now Dec 10, 2009 at 9:01 AM

      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. :)

      Thanks!!

    • Any Ferries or Water Travel directly from HHI to Savannah?

      by kenvil63 Online Now Jul 22, 2007 at 1:06 PM

      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 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.
