Is Summer Really Over on Hilton Head?

It seems that the holiday season is just around the corner! Here at Beach Properties of Hilton Head we cannot believe that the summer is actually over. The skies are still blue, the ocean waters warm and the beaches relaxing and peaceful! Hilton Head Island is a great place to visit – especially during the “off season”. Actually, we really don’t like to use that term—because there really is nothing “off” about our Island any time of the year!

Hilton Head comes alive in the Fall and Winter seasons. Many of our vacation homes and villas run specials on weekly and partial week stays. And when you get here – there are a ton of activities to do. All of our Island’s great restaurants, shops and water activities are open and the Fall & Winter season bring a variety of festivals and special events. Just this past weekend, I attended the Italian Heritage Festival where I was able to feast on homemade zeppolis, Italian inspired foods and learned the proper way to make pasta. Coming up for the month of October is the Cajun Food Festival on October 16 th, and the Bluffton Arts & Seafood Festival on October 17 – 24th – both great events for the entire family!

Hilton Head ends the month of October on a high note with the Concours d’Elegance & Motoring Festival from October 29 – November 7th. This annual event is a Hilton Head tradition and brings together great cars, great food, and thousands of car enthusiasts in a number of motoring events. The pinnacle of the weeks is the Concours d’Elegance itself—held at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn on November 6th & 7th where cars will be judged in a variety of categories.

Many of the activities in November & December are centered around the holidays. Some of our favorites are the Dove Street Lights (the month of December) and the Hilton Head Choral Society’s “Fall into Winter – A Harvest of Carols” (November 22nd). The holidays are also a great time to get away from your everyday routine and spend time with the family—and Hilton Head is a great place to do that.
