Fodor's Expert Review Old Town Bluffton

Hilton Head Island Town/Village Fodor's Choice

Charming Old Town Bluffton has historic homes and churches on oak-lined streets dripping with Spanish moss, intermingled with newer businesses like the Salt Marsh Brewing Company. The Promenade Street area is newer and features trendy bars and restaurants. At the end of Wharf Street is the Bluffton Oyster Company (63 Wharf St.), a place to buy fresh local seafood. Grab a sandwich from the Downtown Deli (1223 May River Rd.) and head to the Calhoun Street Public Dock for a picnic with a view of the May River. Another incredibly beautiful spot to visit is the grounds of the historic Church of the Cross (110 Calhoun St.). Originally inhabited by Yemassee people who were driven out by the first English settlers, the town's later population of slaveholders played a key role in South Carolina's secession.
