Hilton Head

A January 2004 trip to Hilton Head by lyte

Quote: We never miss a year here! Port O' Call is a wonderful timeshare inside Shipyard Plantation and close to the beach. We bicycle all over Shipyard and on the beach. Hilton Head is paradise for golf, tennis, and shopping.

Port O' Call

Hotel

Quote:
The units are excellent, well-equipped, and furnished. The location is excellent -- close to the beach and next to the Shipyard Racquet Club. There's a heated outdoor pool, an unheated outdool pool, and two outdoor hot tubs. It's a small resort, but first-class cabins!

Big Bamboo Cafe

Restaurant

Quote:
This small place is upstairs at Coligny Plaza. They serve good food in a fun atmosphere, decorated like 1940s Pacific island bar. There was a wintertime two-for-one dinner special on Tuesdays, I think?

Adventure Cove

Attraction | "FunWorld - Adventure Cove?"

Quote:
Indoors, there's a large arcade with lots of games, a virtual roller coaster, bumper cars, a 3-D show, etc. Little kids like the "FunWorld" part, which is a giant, enclosed climbing thing and ball pit like they have at McDonalds. Outdoors, there are two miniature golf courses (included in the all-day pass), batting cages, and a golf driving range. Look for a coupon for $5-off coupon in the magazines!

All the courses on Hilton Head are great! Even the less expensive courses are quite fine. Some discount coupons are available in the travel magazines.

Shipyard Plantation

Attraction | "Biking"

Quote:
Relatively flat but scenic paths for the whole family to bicyle are all through Shipyard Plantation. Also, the beach is wide and flat for great bicycling. Access by the big hotel. In Hilton Head, there are bike paths everywhere, so you can venture out, too.

Hilton Head Island Skatepark

Attraction | "Skateboarding"

Quote:
Hilton Head has a great skatepark in a public park. It's free and all daylight hours. Excellent selection of wooden ramps for skateboards and rollerblades. Has inline hockey rink too. Go to Sea Pines Circle and go right - the park is just before the new bridge over the Creek.
