Things to Do on Hilton Head in February
Attend an Oyster Roast
When February rolls around, oyster season is well underway, but this is still one of the best times of year to try these tasty little mollusks. Oysters are in season during any month with an “R,” which means the season basically runs from September through April, but January, February and March are some of the most popular months for oyster roasts. You can find many different oyster roasts taking place on Hilton Head in March including the much anticipated Hilton Head Island Seafood Festival, which kicks off at the end of February. Here, you’ll get a taste of local oysters as well as a variety of other seafood and regional specialities.
Book a Tee Time on the Golf Courses
Golf is one of the main attractions when visiting Hilton Head. The island itself is home to 24 championship golf courses while the entire area has more than 40 courses to play. Even in the middle of winter, you’ll be able to comfortably play outside and enjoy the Lowcountry scenery. Check out the top courses like the Harbour Town Golf Links or the Robert Trent Jones Course.
