Summer like a local in the Lowcountry

Spencer Special Events - Friday, June 10, 2016

Hilton Head Island is home to fabulous beaches, golf courses, tennis courts, bike paths and extreme humidity in the summer months. Hilton Head has great summer activities for all ages like entertainment at the iconic Harbour Town Marina, festival and fireworks every Tuesday at Shelter Cove and of course relaxing on the beach. Below are a few summer activities with a local flare that you should try!

Adventurous Boat Tour

Lately when out on the boat, I spotted some funky looking boats that I have never seen before. Come to find out, they are called Craigcat boats and recently just came to the Island! Backwater Adventure operates scenic waterway tours on the boats and describes them as "Go carts on the water". If you are feeling adventurous, you found the perfect activity!

Daufuskie Island

For an authentic experience, head over to Freeport Marina on Daufuskie Island to see the local boat outing spot, especially on the weekends! You will meet all sorts of characters here and can enjoy a meal and a cocktail listening to live music. While you are on Daufuskie, we recommend renting a golf cart and riding around to see the mostly untouched Island. You will be amazed how much time you can spend doing this! Click the local ferry schedule so you don't have to feel excluded for not having a boat. 

Farmers Market

Drop by the local farmers market to enjoy fresh produce and other goods. Plus, summer and strolling through a farmers market goes hand in hand. Sea Pines Center Farmers Market is on Tuesdays from 10:00-2:00 Bluffton Farmers Market is on Thursdays from 2:00 - 7:00 with complimentary parking and trolley service from Bluffton Village.

Palmetto Bluff Concert Series

We have never needed an excuse to visit Palmetto Bluff, but this is a festive summer activity that shouldn't be missed! Catch some live bands, a couple even local, underneath the oaks on the Village Green. Picnics and coolers are welcome or you can purchase food and beverage. Click on the concert series link for the schedule. 

Beaufort Water Festival

Mark your calendars for July 15th-24th. A scenic drive on 170 will land you in the charming town of Beaufort. This fun community event has daily arts and crafts markets, numerous tournaments to participate in, yummy lowcountry food, and daily entertainment including a concert from country artist, Canaan Smith.

Happy Summer Y'all!
