The holidays are upon us!  But winter in Hilton Head may not be the same as where you’re from.  With amazing weather, and plenty of fun Holiday things we have for you here, there’s also some staples and standards for us that you might not get elsewhere!  This is a little list you can use to check out places and things to do around the island.  And don’t forget, the easiest way to get around is on a bike!  So be sure to check out our bike rentals, and everything else we have in store for you.

Keep up on your Golf Game

The Golf Learning Center at Sea Pines has classes all winter long for those that want to keep their chops up.  They offer daily instructions as well as 2 and 3 day packages, and private instructions with PGA trained instructors.  They’re no slouches, and they have great, valuable experience that any golfer at any level can benefit from!

Winter Shopping

There is plenty of shopping that can be done at Shelter Cove Harbour, located across from the entrance at Palmetto Dunes Resort.  Whether you’re in the market for fishing supplies for a winter fishing trip, or Christmas on the Harbour (and that’s the name of the store) such as collectibles, decorations, and more – there’s plenty to purchase.  Not to mention there are a few of our better art galleries, a nail salon, and a few clothing boutiques to peruse.

Christmas on HHI

Finally…  since ‘tis the season after all, if you’re looking for those Christmas happenings you can visit the Dove Street Festival of Lights every night through January 2, 2016.  It’s a 20 year tradition, and true joy to experience, not to mention it’s all for a couple good causes should you choose to contribute!  Harbour Town Lights is also enjoyable if Christmas lights are your thing.  For those looking to get even more Christmas-y, a week from today (this coming Monday at 8pm) the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra will be performing music from The Polar Express (which we’re pretty excited about)!  Find out more details and book your tickets for The Polar Express here.

There are plenty of fun things to do, the beach is warm enough to enjoy, and getting around is a little easier during the winter months here on Hilton Head Island.  Contact us if you’re looking for more, or just want to find out how we can help make your stay on the island more comfy!
