Pet friendly island



Hilton Head has long been known as a family-friendly vacation destination, and now more than ever families are choosing to stay and play with their four-legged family members in tow.

Boasting dog-friendly beaches, an abundance of dedicated walking paths, endless outdoor activities and a variety of pet-friendly restaurants, Hilton Head’s dog-loving community might sway you to want a dog if you don’t already have one.


Where the views are as stunning as the meals

Paradise is all around us, but even the locals know that the ultimate relaxation on the island is a great meal with a stunning water view. Fortunately for you, this list of Lowcountry proprietors has perfected this unbeatable combination.

Hudson’s Seafood House On the Docks


The restaurant with one of the best views of Port Royal Sound also takes much of its signature shrimp from the sound — one of two remaining shrimping operations on the islands uses the Hudson’s dock in exchange for the restaurant having first right of refusal on its catch. The décor is simple and old school and the boat-shaped gift shop kitschy, but the food and the views are still top notch.
