Extra Day HIlton Head / Charleston

On first visit to Savannah, HIlton Head and Charleston. Arrive Savannah for 3 nights, then have the Omni on Hilton Head for 4 nights. Then head for Charleston for 4 nights. We will have a car. However, I now have one extra night and wonder if I should add to HH or Charleston. I plan to play golf one day on HH, and we want to hang at the beach. Not much else. In Charleston, we have tix for the House and Garden tour on Friday. In Charleston, we will be interested in historical things, fine dining, especially seafood, and staying at a B&B in old town.
I also wonder if there might be some interesting little nearby village/town somewhere sort of between where we might have an interesting night before going into Charleston. Any thoughts? We are mid 70's reasonably healthy, but not into hiking or bicycling.

Beaufort is a small town between Savannah and Charleston -

Honestly, if I had an extra day I'd add Jekyll Island or St. Simons Island in GA. Both are off Brunswick GA, about 1.5 hour south of Savannah. Beautiful coastal islands with a variety of options. More "real" than Hilton Head. I'd probably opt for Jekyll which has an historic area of "cottages" near the Jekyll Island Club. When it was a private island, 10% of the world wealth was represented there "in season". The Federal Reserve Bank was created there - in secret. The sea turtle center is nice too. Plus it's a very "natural" island, very different from HHI.

I certainly wouldn't spend another day in Hilton Head. Beaufort of the Islands would be good. I think you have plenty of time in Savannah and Charleston also.
