Spring Break at Hilton Head, South Carolina

A March 2005 trip to Hilton Head by Dallen

Quote: With my 19-year-old daughter, 23-year-old son, and my wife, we spent a week visiting the coastal lands of Georgia and South Carolina. The March spring weather was cold and wet. However, the people and historic towns of Savannah, Hilton Head, Beaufort, and Charleston kept us warm and delighted to be there.

Spring Break at Hilton Head, South Carolina

Overview

Quote:
We spent a chilly but fun day walking along the streets of Savannah. We spent time (and some money) investigating the antiques and art galleries along the Savannah River and cobblestone/brick lanes in the center of the city.

Quick Tips:

The small town of Beaufort, South Carolina, had some of the oldest and most picturesque houses and gardens of all the towns. Go and see them!

Best Way To Get Around:

Have your car available... Savannah is about a 45-minute trip, Beaufort is about 30 minutes, and Charleston is about a 1 1/2-hour trip. The traffic around Hilton Head can be frustrating!!

Beautiful location overlooking the inland bay. We had the mahimahi and scallops at the Old Fort Pub, which were some of the highlights on our trip. We were surprised and loved the entertainment provided by a dozen male-singing group from Yale. The preppy college boys wearing blue blazers and blue-and-gold ties entertained us at the Old Fort Pub, singing old college tunes.

We heard the waiter's stories of ghosts while we ate some of the best she-crab soup in the area. We had grilled scallops, grouper, and flounder that were delicious. See their website. Excellent place to visit with a great deal of "color".

One of the best seafood restaurants. We had sizzling flounder, crab cakes, and albacore fish. All were cooked to perfection... not fancy with noodles, etc. The dishes allowed the seafood to "speak for itself." For appetizers, we had she-crab soup and boiled peanuts. And our desserts of cheesecake and their homemade bread pudding were too good.
