Hilton Head Island Shopping - Sea Pines Plantation Resort - Harbour Town

Hilton Head Island Shopping – Sea Pines Plantation Resort

Its beautiful day on Hilton Head Island; just right to put the top down and take a drive into Sea Pines Plantation. Remember you will need to pay a $5.00 entrance fee but it will be worth your while. On this trip we’ll visit the Harbour Town Marina. I’d like to show you a few shops that I think are special. Are you ready to go?

The shops in Harbour Town are built in a picturesque setting that surrounds this famous yacht basin and are just across the way from the 18th green at the Harbour Town Links Golf Course. The air is so fresh and the soft breeze is just delightful. Dolphin cruises come and go. Para-sailors dot the clear blue sky. There are over 20 boutiques, galleries and gift shops for you to browse.

The Island Gift Shop is where you can find a special gift for a friend or why not treat yourself. There is a wide variety of unusual gifts that have an island theme. Small jewelry pieces, unique silver pieces, delicate wine glasses, beach theme signs and more.

The Cinnamon Bear Country Store is filled with all kinds of trinkets, games, jellies, jams, flip flops, and where you can buy the much coveted Hilton Head Island and Sea Pines stickers to display proudly on your
car window.

How about some lunch? Now it’s time to stop at the quarter deck for a basket of steamed shrimp, a cool drink and listen to some Lowcountry music. The view of the Harbour is just breath taking. Take a picture to remember this perfect day.

After Lunch more shopping.

In Currents, SM Bradford, and The Hatley Store you can find an assortment of ladies clothing to suite your personal style. Casual to elegant, beach to evening outfits can be accessorized on the spot.

Knickers is a shop filled with elegant mens clothing from casual to dress wear. It has accessories as well.

Camp Hilton Head is a great place to buy Hilton Head t-shirts, shorts, hats, visors, cups, towels and more souvenirs.

There are other great shops and galleries that we can visit on our next trip, but now it’s time to stop at the Crazy Crab for and early dinner. She Crab soup, a salad and fresh local fish sound wonderful.

The Harbour is getting very busy with visitors and locals coming to take part in the evening festivities. All are waiting for Greg Russell to sing under the old Oak Tree. Hundreds of folks come, many more than once, to hear Greg’s stories and songs. You will want to sing along as well while the sun sets in the background. It’s the perfect end of our shopping excursion.

Until next time.
