How to Have an Unforgettable Thanksgiving on Hilton Head

1. Surround Yourself with Coastal Beauty

Though getting away for the holidays is a refreshing change of pace, it’s tough to find a place that feels both new and just like home. One of those rare places is the Hilton Head area! There’s idyllic beauty at every turn here—especially in Old Town Bluffton, a hidden gem tucked away just 25 minutes away from the island. Whether your ideal Thanksgiving on Hilton Head includes a marsh hike, sipping coffee with your sweetheart at a local cafe, or simply relaxing in your luxurious accommodation, you’ll experience a truly special Thanksgiving retreat here.

2. Let Someone Else Do the Cooking and Cleaning

What’s better than a wholesome feast with your loved ones on Thanksgiving? Not having to worry about cooking and cleaning, of course! If you’re ready to experience a one-of-a-kind holiday in the Lowcountry, Old Town Bluffton is the absolute best place to stay. There are so many top-tier restaurants here—both a few miles away on Hilton Head and steps away in Bluffton. Allow experienced local chefs to do all of the cooking and cleaning so you don’t have to!

There are even plenty of spots for retail therapy here (if you’re looking to get a head start on Christmas shopping).
