Hilton Head and the Low Country Sights


Bluffton Review

Tucked away from the resorts, charming Old Town Bluffton has several historic homes and churches, an active artists' colony in the Calhoun Street area, good restaurants (including the fun-named Squat 'n' Gobble, Sippin' Cow, and Pepper's Porch), and oak-lined streets dripping with Spanish moss. At the end of Wharf Street in Old Town Bluffton is the Bluffton Oyster Company, a place to buy fresh raw local shrimp, fish, and oysters. Grab some picnic fixings from the Downtown Deli (27 Dr. Mellichamp Dr.) and head to the boat dock at the end of Pritchard Street for a meal with a view. Another incredibly beautiful spot for a picnic is the grounds of the Church of the Cross on the May River at 60 Calhoun Street. Bluffton's chain hotels—including Candlewood Suites, Holiday Inn Express, and the Comfort Inn—a few miles from the Old Town district provide a nearby alternative to Hilton Head's higher prices.
