Family Friendly Dining on Hilton Head

If you’re bringing the whole gang out for a bite to eat, here’s where you can make everyone happy.

Taken as a whole, Hilton Head Island is enormously kid-friendly. This should be fairly evident based on a quick drive down William Hilton Parkway, where putt-putt courses line the street on either side.

And let’s face it, this is a place for the kid in all of us. Families have been coming to the island for years, to enjoy our beaches, golf courses, tennis courts and waterways together. Young or old, this is the place where you can let loose and have fun with the whole family.

But when it comes time to dine out, you might find that Hilton Head Island’s sophisticated dining scene hasn’t left a lot of room for the chicken fingers and crayons crowd.…

Hilton Head Public Art Display

Hilton Head Island has a long history of supporting the arts, not only through its famed galleries and theaters, but through the support the town has given to artists and their creations. Historically a haven for the arts community, the island has long been home to famed artists including commercial illustrator Joe Bowler, author John Jakes and musicians like Duncan Sheik.

But it’s in the town’s support of the visual arts that we find one of the most impressive displays of community support. The public art fund was created by Community Foundation of the Lowcountry to promote public art throughout the island, and works hand-in-hand with the town of Hilton Head Island to create eye-catching sculptures all across the island.

As far back as you can see in our history, you will find the oyster playing a huge role in South Carolina. The most visible reminders we have of the Paleo Indians who once called Hilton Head Island home are the massive shell rings they left behind. Scholars are split as to whether the rings hold any ritualistic significance or if the Indians just happened to discard their shells in a ring around camp, but either way, they clearly went through some oysters.

Fast forward a few centuries, and you will find oysters playing a huge role in the antebellum period of South Carolina’s history. The structures from that period were largely made from a material called tabby, which was composed of oyster shells. Once again, we see these bivalves playing a large role…
