ACTIVITIES

Kayak Hilton Head - Photography by Joyce Harkins, Hilton Head Island Photography, INC.

Boasting miles of white-sand beaches and paved public pathways, dozens of world-class golf courses and tennis facilities, pristine waterways and every imaginable water sport, wildlife preserves and nature tours, thousands of luxury hotel rooms and fully-equipped villas and homes, on Hilton Head Island it is not a matter of finding something to do, it's finding time to do and see everything.


Established in 1985, the Coastal Discovery Museum offers hands-on exploration of the Lowcountry‘s diverse cultural heritage and complex natural history with an array of programs, presenta­tions, exhibits and tours for all ages.

Royal, Beach Discovery, Turtle Talks & Walks and much more.

The last significant parcel of open space on Hilton Head Island, the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn opened to the public in 2007.

EVENTS HONEY HORN HISTORY WALK The Honey Horn property has over 200 years of history, from the time when it was used as a working plantation for indigo and cotton to the Hunting Era when the property was a retreat for wealthy northern hunters. Learn about the Honey Horn cemetery, visit the Museum’s Heritage Garden and learn about the Hacks who lived at Honey Horn from 1950 until the late 1990s. Thursdays, 10-11:30 a.m. $10 adult; $5 child. Reservations required by calling (843) 689-6767 ext. 223 or register online.

Comprising 68-acres of salt marsh and maritime forests, centuries-old live oaks, open fields and a dozen historic structures, Honey Horn is located at the inter­section of Highway 278 and the Cross Island Expressway. Over its 300-year history, Honey Horn has been home to Indian tribes, indigo and Sea Island cot­ton plantations, Gullah families who hunted and farmed the land, a hunt club established by northern busi­nessmen and, starting in 1950, Fred Hack’s private residence and farm. In the late 1990s, the Town of Hilton Head Island purchased the site and leased it to the Coastal Discovery Museum for 95 years. Construction of the 6,000-sq.-ft. hunting lodge began in 1859 and, today, is known as the Discovery House, complete with permanent and temporary exhibits, a Kids Zone and gift shop. Self-guided tours of the property via salt marsh boardwalks and an oys­ter shell trail include the Karen Wertheimer Butterfly Enclosure, a Lowcountry Heritage Garden and a Camellia Garden. Guided History/Nature Walks & Talks, live animal programs and seasonal kids camps are offered on a regular basis. Off-site tours and programs include the Forts of Port 6

This historic property is also avail­ able to rent for wedding receptions, corporate events and is home to some of the Island’s annual festivals.

SALT MARSH DISCOVERY The Salt Marsh is a unique environment with a fascinating tale that is often overlooked. The role the Salt Marsh plays as a filter for water and a nursery for many of the creatures that inhabit the coast is vital for the functioning of the coastal ecosystem. Learn from an expert how and why this particular environment is so important. Fridays, 10-11:30 a.m. $10 adults; $7 child (ages 4-12). Reservations required by calling (843) 689-6767 ext. 223 or register online.

Lowcountry

ANIMALS

Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin

Local waters host a large, year-round popu­la­­tion of these playful, airbreath­ing mammals. The South Carolina Lowcountry is also one of the few places to witness strand feeding–a learned behavior where dolphins work as a team to corral fish, chase them onto a muddy bank and then temporarily beach themselves to eat their catch.

Marsh Tacky

Once the most common horse found in the Southeast, this Colonial Spanish breed is unique­ly adapted for sur­vival in swampy ter­rain. On the Sea Islands, Gullah families used them for transporta­tion, hunting and farming. Today, fewer than 400 of these small, gentle horses exist.

Alligator

Keep your distance from these feder­ ally-pro­tected, prehistoric reptiles often seen sunning themselves on the banks of lagoons. It is ille­gal to feed these cold-blooded animals and, although they may look listless

12

The Official Guide Sept. 2015-Feb. 2016

and slow, they can out­run humans over short distances.

Loggerhead Sea Turtle

Every summer, dozens of female log­ gerhead sea turtles travel thou­­sands of miles to Hilton Head Island, return­ ing to lay their eggs on the same beach where they hatched two or three decades earlier. It is a federal offense to harass these ancient reptiles which can weigh up to 300 pounds.

Green Anole

Common in South Carolina and Georgia, this lizard is called a chameleon for its ability to change color. The only anole species native to the United States, males have a pink throat fan they display when protecting their ter­ritory or finding a mate.

Southeastern Five-Lined Skink

Named for the five white or yellowish stripes running down their backs, these moderately large lizards eat a variety of insects and spiders. Like many other lizards, their tails will break off if attacked, but it is only a myth that they are venomous.

Recreational Pathways Guide The Town of Hilton Head Island provides nearly 60 miles of public path­ways and nature trails for the enjoy­ment of pedes­trians and cyclists. At low tide, the Island’s 12 miles of beaches are ideal for biking. Public beaches are indicated on the Public Pathways Map. Our map also shows the existing public pathways. Many kiosks are located along the pathways with an Island-wide map on one side, and a localized map of the area on the other.

RULES FOR THE ROAD: Please obey all traffic signals and pathway markings. Stop signs must be obeyed for safety. Bicycles are vehicles and must obey SC traffic laws. Travel the pathways at speeds that allow for the safety of pedes­­­trians and other users. Never ride within the roadway against traffic. State law requires bicycles to drive like all other vehicles. Please do not ride on roads where a pathway is available. Please ride single file and keep a safe distance from other bicyclists. WATCH OUT FOR MOTORISTS! Motorists must yield to pedestrians and bicyclists within marked crossings, but they may not see you. Please yield to pedestrians. When resting or stopped, please move off the pathway. Most sections of the pathways are not illuminated. If you must bike at night, please wear light-colored clothing or carry a flash­light. Bicycles must have a red rear reflector and a headlight when biking at night. When approaching slower pathway users from behind, please sound your warning device, or call out, “Passing on your left.” Always pass on the left. Bicyclists should always wear a helmet, especially children 12 and under. Make eye contact and use hand signals. Assume other bicyclists and motorists don’t see you. Hand signals tell motorists and other path users what you intend to do and will ensure everyone’s safe enjoyment of the pathways. Be courteous, alert and predictable.
