We are only four weeks away from our first trip to Hilton Head Island. I enjoy everyone's pictures and start each day by checking the long range weather forecast and watching the web cameras in Sea Pines resort. I'd appreciate any advice you think helpful for a newbie.

What's the best grocery store near Sea Pines resort?

Is there a good family friendly seafood restaurant?

What activities are there for young children on rainy days?

First day of DST and 66 degrees at 7:30 AM! Another beautiful day in the Lowcountry. Hopefully you'll have nice weather for your visit.

There's a big Harris Teeter just outside the front gate of Sea Pines. Hudson's is a good seafood place with outdoor seating on the water. Old Oyster Factory is another. I think Oyster Factory takes reservations. The Coastal Discovery Museum is a good place to take the kids. Our grandkids LOVE to go up to the town of Port Royal to Sands Beach (on the Beaufort River) to look for sharks teeth. Bikes can be rented pretty expensively and delivery and pick up are included. Bike trails are every where. Hope you enjoy your stay.

Thank you Dave. Sands Beach and searching for shark's teeth is a lovely idea. My extensive searches on Google did not turn that one up. This is why I like the idea of asking people instead of looking only at blogs and articles. The bike rentals don't seem overly expensive and will make packing much easier.
