Hilton Head rentalWhile winters here are not so bad — we have yet to see a single snowflake (and rarely ever do!) and have had only a handful of “chilly” days — we are still looking forward to springtime on the island.

Here are five reasons why:


1)    Azaleas in bloom – If you haven’t seen the glory of the azaleas in bloom in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, you are truly missing out. These wild, bushy blooms dot the side of the road and fill Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort with beautiful colors of purple, pink, white and red.

2)    Kayaking and canoeing – Spring is perfect for hopping in our 11-mile inland lagoon system for a peaceful paddle without having to worry that you’ll be too cold if you get a little wet. Get in some exercise while exploring the natural beauty of Hilton Head Island.

3)    Wildlife – The wildlife start to come out and about as the weather warms from our plentiful birds to colorful butterflies and of course, dolphins and even the occasional otter who swims up into the lagoon behind Hilton Head Outfitters.

4)    Bikes, bikes and more bikes – We love biking the 50 miles of paved paths on the island in spring, as they are as busy as they are during summer and the weather is perfect for wearing shorts — or maybe even your swimsuit — as you head to the beach, the oceanfront Dunes House or even the General Store for some yummy fried chicken.

5)    Walks on the beach – While the water may still be a bit chilly for a dip, the sunshine makes it plenty warm for a walk on the beach. With the ocean breeze during winter, it can be a bit too cold for comfort. Spend time running, beachcombing or keeping an eye out for dolphins.

As the seasons change, it’s inevitable we have to start putting away the shorts and flip-flops and digging out the jeans, boots and sweatshirts. Of course, here on Hilton Head Island, the temperatures stay mild through fall and we regularly have 70-degree days throughout winter. So we can hang onto those flip-flops just a bit longer and even bring out the shorts here and there :) .

We’ve recently gotten some fashionable and trendy apparel in store here at Hilton Head Outfitters … just in case your wardrobe needs a bit of an update for fall and winter!

Hilton Head OutfittersTo help you with your Hilton Head Island vacation planning, we recently updated the Hilton Head Outfitters website to make reserving your equipment rentals in advance even simpler. Now, you can book everything from Hilton Head bike rentals to beach chairs with just a couple clicks of the mouse.

Go to the home page of our updated website at www.HiltonHeadOutfitters.com, and on the right hand side, you’ll find our new reservation system. Simply choose from bike rentals, kayak or canoe rentals, surfboard or paddleboard rentals, or beach chair and umbrella rentals. If you select “equipment” in the system, that will show you items, such as bike baskets, helmets and tag-a-long bikes for kids.

Select the dates you’ll need the items and the length of time, and you’ll be able to see what’s available and at what price. Then, you’ll add the items you’d like to reserve to your online shopping cart and then check out.

Reserving items like bikes ahead of time is important, especially during weekends and busier seasons on Hilton Head Island when we sometimes sell out of some rentals. Not only will you be assured a bike or kayak or beach chair will be waiting for you upon your arrival, but it’s one less thing you’ll need to worry about on your vacation.

You can also reserve your bikes via our mobile site if you’d prefer to do your booking on your smart phone or tablet device. Simply text BIKE to 843-627-0007 to get a link to the mobile booking site. One more tip for you: if you “like” us on Facebook, you can get a special promo code to save 15% on your total bike order.
