April 2010 Where To Go Hilton Head • 7

Reasons For All Seasons
great restaurants, value Outstanding accommodations,different tennis partners driven & stylish shopping, a golf course for every day of your visit, many enthusiastic (if you didn’t bring your own), hundreds of tennis courts, great sailing, fishing & days of play on and in the water, a plethora of spas to keep you relaxed. Hilton Head Island has become a year-round vacation choice. More corporations, associations and groups are taking advantage of the wide variety of activities for families this time of year as well as other seasons. While you're here, ask about group rates & attractive off-season rates for your next visit. Plan to stay an extra day, just for fun. You’ll be impressed with the professional & helpful staff to help make your next stay the best one yet. Did you miss the golden arches usually seen silhouetted against the sky or dozens of neon signs flashing “Welcome”as you drove onto the island? Not in this town!! Even the Red Roof Inn doesn’t have a bright red roof on Hilton Head (they did manage to get the Town to approve a muted red roof)! Our business community conforms to very strict building codes & signage (very few neon lights) that protects the beauty and integrity of the original plan of development for the Island. If you have been to Hilton Head Island before, you’ll be surprised to see lots of new development and new shops on Hwy 278 from Sun City coming toward Hilton Head. Exit 8 off I-95 has made it much easier to approach the island directly, and the milemarkers on Island as well as the Cross Island Expressway (toll) around the island directly to the Sea Pines Circle, are very helpful as well. (Trust me! Don’t speed!) Hilton Head offers different opportunities each season of the year. There’s always a full calendar if you want to stay busy; or you may elect to lay back, relax and enjoy the tranquility our plantation environment provides. Just a few reasons to visit in even another season, consider the following tournaments, events & seasonal pleasures and this is just the beginning........... APRIL Verizon Heritage of Golf April 12-18 2010. International television coverage. Tickets/details: 1.800.234.1107. Tickets are also available through The Chamber of Commerce. 843.785.3673.

April 2010 Where To Go Hilton Head • 11

The List of Things I Should Not Miss
“Today I will commit one random act of senseless kindness”
HECK OUT TIDE CHART and go for a long walk on our beautiful beaches, (better yet, ride your bike). You’ll pass several beautiful hotels, oceanfront homes, & enjoy the soft breezes you came here for. Tides fluctuate as much as seven feet. Plan ahead & leave your towels & picnic supplies far enough back so they won’t get soaked or washed away. (The tide chart is in the Nautical Notes section, or refer to the Table of Contents or see page 70.) AKE AN EARLY MORNING WALK ON THE BEACH or a bike ride. Enjoy coffee at one of the oceanfront hotels or take your coffee with you. (Check the tide chart in the Nautical section to see how much beach you’ll have for walking. High tide is not the best time.) But only because the water comes up almost to the dunes, and there’s no point getting your tennis shoes wet. Remember: NO GLASS ON THE BEACH! Strictly enforced. And it will NOT BE FREE!



And please varying speed Drive carefully.use especiallystay withintotheindicate Island your turn signals you’re limits. And changing lanes. Be careful on the Cross


Expressway. The speed limit changes dramatically before or after you cross. Believe me, it will not be free!!!!Those tickets, really make for a bad day!!!Have some change for the toll booth. They “take names” (actually license plate numbers) if you speed through and don’t pay the toll. We want you to have fun and not take home bad memories or points on your license. Courtesy usually prevails, but just in case, give the guy that’s in such a hurry all the room he needs. You’ll arrive about the same time he does, but without the stress (or a ticket) And you’ll have that money in your pocket to spend on food and fun.) aster Sunrise Service will be April 4. There are several places on the Island that plan for this special service. Call the church of your choice to get their recommendation. You’ll discover a special atmosphere at a sunrise service on the beach overlooking the awesome Atlantic Ocean. Not to be missed!

VERIZON HERITAGE GOLF TOURNAMENT will dominate the 2nd week of April. And if there’s a will, you’ll find a way to make it to the tournament at least one day. But I promise you, it gets to you. One day is not enough. Seeing the players up close, enjoying the crowds, the immaculate course, the concessions and the atmosphere is something you’ll remember for a long time. Stop by the 19th Hole and say ‘hello’. Sunset Rotary Club mans the big booth, complete with beer, food, big TV (so you won’t miss any action), games, and a party atmosphere. If you don’t have a ticket, the 19th hole is outside the course overlooking the Calibogue Sound. You can walk over from Harbour Town and join in the fun. ROSE HILL PLANTATION MANSION TOUR every day. Just call. 843-757-6046 Listed on the National List of Historic Places, its beautifully restored to its former elegance. Its also available for parties or gatherings for your organization or group. Its a perfect way to entertain yourself, your friends or part of your convention program. If you’re looking for a perfect honeymoon cottage. Ask to see their lovely cottage adjacent to the mansion. JAM NIGHT MONDAYS BISTRO MEZZALUNA beginning at 7:00pm. Teri Rini Powers and her Friends will entertain and keep you happy all night. Great food! Exciting music! A good time! And Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday, they also have music for enjoyment, whether for listening or dancing. You’ll have a good time. And their Italian menu items are delicious 843-842-5011

History of the Island
ilton Head Island is a product of many cultures, backgrounds and personalities. Influences from the American Indian, African American, Spanish, French and British peoples are reflected in the names of places, plantations, and other parts of Hilton Head Island. We’ve highlighted a few and you’ll discover more via the tours available. The Indian Shell Ring in the Sea Pines Forest Preserve dates back to 1450 B.C. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this mound of oyster shells, animal bones & clay provides a visible monument to the prolific oyster beds and to the Indians who made them one of their staples. In 1521, the Spanish left their mark on the Island. Cordillo Parkway now bears the name of the Spaniard who discovered the harbor to Port Royal about the same time St. Augustine, Florida was founded. In 1562, Admiral Coligny sent Jean Ribaut to lead French Huguenots in a search of religious freedom and although France and Spain fought over the harbor for many years, Spain was eventually given the land in a treaty by the Roman Catholic Pope. By 1663, England, made her bid for a place in the new world. Sir William Hilton, aboard the good ship “Adventure,” sighted tall pines as he searched for the entrance to Port Royal. Marking the spot on his map, sailors referred to this point as “Hilton Head.” Hilton’s glowing report of the fertile soil and ideal growing conditions on the island promoted British colonization. 1698 saw the establishment of large plantations as a result of barony land grants. In 1717, the agent for those original developers sold the land along Skull Creek. The real estate agent called the Island “Trench’s Island.” Settlers established large plantations. Indigo was the major crop on from the 1740’s until the Revolutionary War. Across the “toe” was “Dawfoskee”. Is has been accepted by most historians that Daufuskie (present spelling) got its name from the Yemassee Indian word that means “land with a point”, (referring to its shape which resembles a pointed feather). The pictured “D’Awfoskee“ chart was published in 1776. The American Revolution fostered a need by the British military for charts and maps of America. Daufuskie Islanders (Tories), supported Britain in the Revolution, while Hilton Head Islanders supported the Colonists. The Civil War was one of the busiest times on the island. Nearly 30,000 Union troops were stationed on Hilton Head after the “Battle of Port Royal Sound” on Nov 7, 1861. Fort Mitchel, built in 1862, and named for Gen. Ormsby Mitchel, who commanded the Union soldiers on Hilton Head in 1862, was part of the defense for the northern end of the Island during the Union occupation. (Remains of this Fort as well as other historical treasures have been preserved as vital treasures of our past. A 1861 map shows the original plantations and landmarks. The Gullah community who were part of the plantation system and so important to the agriculture on the island were freed as a result of the war, and they used money they had hidden and saved from their earnings as laborers to buy land and begin a life on their own land. We have much to thank this community for today; for they continue to share with us their rich heritage. (Be sure to take a tour and hear the many stories of heart break and heroism of these families so important in the history of Hilton Head Island. (Gullah Heritage Tours: 843-681-7066) (I was recently called to account for not mentioning the importance of the Gullah heritage in this article. And for that I do apologize. Designed to give you a ‘taste’ of our history, you will have to ‘read between the lines’ for a more in depth account if you stop your exploration here. Hopefully you will discover more on your own through the books that have been written so well and documented with pictures on the history of our island.) Developers have kept the Island history in mind as they have planned present Island developments.) (Leamington was


called Leamington even in 1861.) Call the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn: 843-689-3033 ext 221 and make reservations to take one of their many special tours. “Modern” Hilton Head began in the 50s and the Island has seen phenomenal growth thanks to wise and carefully planned development. But before Charles Fraser could begin his mark on the Island, a man named Alfred L. Loomis, and his brother in law Landon Thorne, bought 17,000 of the 25,000 acre island for quail hunting. Had he not purchased all the parcels included in that tract of land, Charles Fraser would not have been able to build his dream because that land was owned by freed ‘slaves’ after the Civil War. The term “plantation” had not been used since the turn of the century until the development of Sea Pines Plantation. Charles Fraser conceived and pioneered the concepts of respect for the environment. His philosophy was to offer amenities first (golf courses, marinas, bike paths, etc.) and development would follow. The result of that philosophy you see today. (Mr. Fraser died in an untimely accident in Dec, 2002. He is buried under the Liberty Oak in Harbour Town. A fitting tribute to a man who meant so much to the recognition and growth of this island.) Hilton Head recognizes over 35,000 permanent residents and hosts more than two million visitors each year. The Island has become a year round resort destination. There are two lighthouses on Hilton Head. Most famous is the 90 ft. tall Harbour Town lighthouse in Sea Pines. Climb to the top. Take your camera. (You’ll also find a great shop with the best selection of lighthouse memorabilia anywhere.) The other one is on the Arthur Hills Golf Course in Palmetto Dunes Resort. Turtle Lane is so named for the Loggerhead turtles who come to bury their eggs then return to the sea ( white markers along the beach designate a protected area where Loggerheads make their way to their nesting area). And in years past, we even had a Leatherback Turtle make her way to our shores. More than 250 species of birds are seen on Hilton Head during the year. “The Birders Guide to Hilton Head Island And The Lowcountry,” published by Hilton Head Audubon Society, is considered to be the ‘birders’ bible. The SC State Tree is the Sabal or Cabbage Palmetto. Hardiest palm along the coastal plain, the trunk is covered with overlays of thick husks. Palmetto means “small palm” in Spanish. This tree was a symbol of the Revolution because of its ability to repel bullets during combat. The Palmetto is pictured on our state flag & state seal. The State Shell is the Lettered Olive. Our State Bird, the Carolina Wren, is pictured on some SC license plates. Yellow Jasmine: the State Flower. The State Dance : “The Shag”. The Peach, the state fruit, and the State Beverage is (nope, not gin & tonic), but milk). (The state social drink is iced tea.) The state fish is the Bass. The State Animal: the Whitetail Deer (Bambi & friends), not the alligator. And also listed in the SC Legislative handbook is the State Spider: the Wolf Spider. Shaped like a shoe (toe, instep, heel & ankle), Hilton Head is about 12 miles long, up to 4 miles wide and encompasses about 42 square miles. The beach extends almost the entire length of the Island. Trees grow right up to the beachline. Beautiful palms and palmettos, magnolias, tall pines and ancient oak trees are abundant. This natural protection as well as God’s smile have preserved our Island from heavy storm damage. Hilton Head is a very special Island that more than 35,000 call home. Not without our growing pains (or maybe we can call them “growing gains”), we’re concerned with our environment and Island growth with its accompanying problems. We continue to define and implement ways to make our Island an even more wonderful place to live or visit.. Come again and be a part of the new history you are helping develop on Hilton Head Island.

A word of concern from WHERE TO GO. We care about you and your safety. There is nothing pleasant about spending your vacation in the Beaufort County Jail. They are nice folks over there, but there is no “Happy Hour” (and they do not accept VISA or MasterCard) In fact, we can almost guarantee you will NOT have a good time. DUI’s go directly to jail. They do cross the bridge, but they do NOT collect $200. In fact, you may end up paying that amount. And SC law prohibits open containers of any alcoholic beverages in the passenger section of your car. Judge Rita Simmons, is very personable, but you do not want to see her in court. The speed limit on the Island is 45 mph with 35 posted in many areas. Our Law Enforcement team is very effective so do not exceed the limit. Believe me, they do not want to “make your day.” The speed limit coming onto the Island is 55 mph TOPS. It’s 45 at the foot of the bridge and they mean it! Watch it on the Cross Island Expressway, and especially on Palmetto Bay Rd. Unmarked Thunderbirds are watching for you and their sole reason for existence is writing tickets.
It would be smart not to mix boating & alcohol. The Beaufort County Marine Patrol may be watching you. Be smart & safe. And watch those no wake zones.

Package stores are identified by the red dot. They close at 7:00 p.m. Mon-Sat. Closed on Sunday. You may buy an alcoholic beverage Sundays in most restaurants serving food. Beer & wine are available Sundays at the grocery stores. An ordinance prohibits alcohol on the beach!

Daufuskie Island & Eco Dolphin Trips


each person Daufuskie trip only


Capt. Eulice 60’ Antique Show Boat Award Winner!
5 trips daily to Daufuskie Island. All trips are fully narrated dolphin watches. • You can choose to go just for the ride or get off on Daufuskie, the ‘Island of Mystique’. • Once on the island, you can take our two-hour historic bus tour given by one of the locals and considered the island’s best-narrated tour. • Perhaps you would prefer to self-tour by renting a golf cart for 3 or 6 hours (beach comb, look for arrowheads, search for old relics, shark’s teeth, etc. on one of the most beautiful beaches on the eastern seaboard.) • Visit the Freeport General Store & The Old Daufuskie Crab Company right where the boat docks at the boat landing at Freeport Marina. Indoor and outdoor dining. Gullah lunch buffet, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. A full menu that includes the famous Daufuskie Deviled Crab, as well as steaks to hamburgers is available Tuesday thru Sunday.
If the ride over to Daufuskie weren't enjoyable enough, passing beautiful homes, seeing smaller islands, watching the dolphins swimming along side the boat; then the experiences on Daufuskie Island will definitely make you glad you chose to make a trip to one of the most scenic and historical islands on the East Coast. There are buses to take you in comfort around the island, and golf carts to allow you to experience the island on your own. Maybe just enjoying the quiet breezes as you lounge outside at one of the picnic tables overlooking Calibogue Sound will be one of your lasting memories. In any case, there's plenty to do on this special island Pat Conroy wrote about in "The Water is Wide" so many years ago. And there's the special history tour with Roger Pinckney, author of "Seventh Son on Sacred Ground" and "The Right Side of the River." The Sapelo Queen is a classic passenger ferry, Coast Guard approved for 149 passengers. Before coming to Hilton Head, it was the boat used to ferry passengers from the mainland to Sapelo Island, GA. You've come this far to enjoy the ocean and its surroundings, complete your visit with a trip to Daufuskie Island. Daufuskie Island is a beautiful location for a wedding, reunion, graduation party, family gathering or any fun occasion. Special discounted rates are available for groups. Consider spending the night in one of the comfortable air-conditioned Daufuskie Crab Cottages. "Rustic elegance" away from it all and an experience you'll love sharing with your friends when you get back home.
