Hilton Head

A Hilton Head vacation may be heaven for a golfer, but the area also offers all kinds of other options for sports fans.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Dolphin & Whale Watching and Coligny Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Hilton Head: Beaufort (Hunting Island State Park & Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park). There's still lots to do: zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, kick back and relax at Alder Lane Beach Access, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and cast your line with a fishing tour.

To find other places to visit, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, use the Hilton Head route planning site .

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Hilton Head. In September in Hilton Head, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 71°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) early enough to drive to Charleston.

Charleston

Many visitors describe their Charleston holiday as a warm embrace by an old, dear friend--who lived about 200 years ago.
Kick off your visit on the 14th (Sat): get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and then contemplate the long history of Fort Sumter National Monument. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, then pause for some serene contemplation at Grace Church Cathedral, and then kick back and relax at Folly Beach Public Beach.

Plan my Charleston trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can drive from Hilton Head to Charleston in 2.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. In September, daily temperatures in Charleston can reach 84°F, while at night they dip to 70°F. On the 16th (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive back home.
