In June, I took a short trip down south to Georgia and South Carolina. Since Hilton Head is an island it was much easier to fly into Savannah rather than directly onto the island. So we made use of the day we arrived and spent the day touring Savannah before heading across the bridge to Hilton Head!
To start our day in Savanah we took a stroll along the water and had lunch at a cute little restaurant overlooking the bay. I absolutely loved this street by the water because there were so many cute shops, restaurants, and bars to choose from! After fueling ourselves with lunch we took the trolly around Savannah which was perfect for seeing all the sights while learning about the history of Savannah without the hassle of trying to figure out where everything is.
Before heading to Hilton Head we had to make some quick stops and grab a bag of candy from one of the old fashioned candy shops where some you can watch them make homemade saltwater taffy! I recommend saving the taffy for later because another foodie staple of Savannah is Leopold’s Ice Cream where you can snag one of their many unique flavors of ice cream!
Hilton Head Island was the perfect little getaway spot with the beautiful beaches, quaint shops, and famous towns spread around the island! To be honest we spent most of the time at the beach but also got our exercise in by biking around the plantations on the island. Besides the beaches, another spot to visit during the day is the Harbour Town Lighthouse which is a staple of Hilton head island and a must-visit on your trip! There are so many shops to go into and romantic restaurants overlooking the water. Where if you time it right you can shop while you wait for your seat and then see the sunset while you enjoy a delicious meal!
