magine waking up on a bright and sunny morning in Hilton Head Island’s famous Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, walking out your front door and realizing that in your haste to start your vacation, you forgot to bring bikes. The carefully planned group beach bicycle tour evaporates and, as you gaze longingly at the wide, flat, hard expanses of sand 10 paces from your patio, the images of your family cheerfully pedaling down sun-drenched beaches together collapses like a water raft with a hole in it. A true vacation disaster, right? Not quite. Home to nearly 60 miles of paved public pathways and 12 miles of hard-packed beaches, Hilton Head Island is recognized as one of the top 25 Bicycle-Friendly Communities in the United States with so many rental options, even your [sometimes] cranky mother-in-law and picky teenager will find bikes they like.

arrowly escaping a bike-less vacation, once the rentals arrive you and your family breathe a sigh of relief, jump on the bikes and pedal like mad along Palmetto Dunes’ amazing bike trails, underneath Highway 278 and hang a left into Shelter Cove Harbour. After parking your bikes and hanging up your helmets, you regroup at water’s edge near the towering King Neptune statue, hailed as the world’s largest figurative sundial and the site of weekly concert series in the spring and fall. While snapping some amazing vacation shots of the marina as the yachts, kayaks, paddle boarders, pirate ships and fishing vessels glide by, you realize your stomach is rumbling since, in your haste to explore, you forgot to eat the most important meal of the day!

T

he smell of freshly baked goods wafting from Hilton Head Social Bakery draws you closer and it’s difficult to decide which savory pastry to try first with your organic coffee as the kids (and your mother-inlaw) clamor for chocolate croissants. Placing your order, you then secure seats at an outdoor table overlooking the water to plan the rest of the day. Of course, the only thing everyone can agree on is bringing extra cinnamon pecan rolls, rustic sourdough bread and lemon tarts back to the rental for later consumption.

Feeling adventurous? Pitch a tent or rent a cabin to experience the true essence of the “Slowcountry.” Start the day off right with a hot cup of freshly roasted coffee and hearty breakfast at any of the restaurants around town—many offering locally sourced menu items—before heading out to explore South Carolina’s second oldest city by foot, bike or horse-drawn carriage.

Owned and operated by a native Beaufortonian, the award-winning Sea Island Carriage Company offers a 50-minute narrated tour through time in the 304-acre National Landmark Historic District with its high concentration of 18th and 19th century homes in an unusual variety of Federal, Early Classical Revival and Greek Revival architectural styles. These former in-town plantation estates of wealthy Lowcountry planters were spared destruction following the Civil War’s Battle of Port Royal Sound in 1861 and many were used as hospitals by the occupying Union forces. After a friendly introduction to the ex-Amish Draft Horse pulling the carriage, city-certified guides take passengers clip-clopping under live oaks dripping with Spanish moss and cloaked in resurrection fern and past the Parish Church of St. Helena. Established in 1712, the Parish Church is one of the oldest churches in North America and served as a horse stable during the American Revolution. A little further along, view the Milton Maxcy House, a.k.a. “Secession House,” where the town’s founding fathers met and eventually drafted the Ordinance of Secession, making South Carolina the first state to secede from the Union prior to the Civil War. 30

he charming carriage then passes The Arsenal, erected in 1798 and the original home of the Beaufort Volunteer Artillery, a citizen militia officially recognized in 1776 and dedicated to protecting the town in times of war. The Arsenal now serves as the Beaufort Visitors Center and the Beaufort Museum. In this coastal city, a proud military past meets the present, so be sure to thank the U.S. Marines you’re sure to encounter from Parris Island and the Air Station for their service. The tour continues crossing over Boundary Street to The Point neighborhood and its treasure trove of Victorian-era homes. Get the camera ready to snap a picture of “The Castle,” go under “The Hanging Tree” and see The Green (a city park featured in The Big Chill and The Great Santini). Movie buffs will jostle for position to view the various historic homes where notable celebrities have resided, including Lowcountry literary icon Pat Conroy and movie stars Sally Field (in town for Forrest Gump) and Barbra Streisand (while filming The Prince of Tides). Sufficiently awed and impressed after nearly an hour of surveying Beaufort’s historical sites and fabulous architecture, it’s time for a leisurely lunch while deciding on the next adventure—shopping, pampering or launching out on the water from the Downtown Marina. It’s now mid-afternoon, and adventure lurks around every corner, but the sun is getting a little too hot to bear! An oasis of serenity awaits at one of Beaufort’s lovely spas, set against the charm of the Old South, where hospitality is the order of the day. Enjoy the tranquility of the enchanting surroundings, de-stress in a relaxing, aroma-laden room and anticipate a massage or facial, manicure or pedicure, or any number of soothing skin treatments. Thus refreshed, next on the agenda is a walking tour of downtown’s acclaimed art galleries, amazing jewelry stores and the mouthwatering chocolate shop spotted earlier. Then it’s rushing and giggling back to your charming accommodations to shower and change. Once everyone has wiggled into their cute dresses and strappy sandals, it’s time for a cocktail! After a quick rundown of local seafood restaurants, BBQ joints, international fare, Gullah cuisine, American classics and pub grub, it’s off to the perfect Happy Hour spot overlooking the water and a royal sunset celebration.

Just across the South Carolina border, Georgia’s First City awaits with cobblestone streets, brick sidewalks and canopy of live oaks shading the squares surrounding 17th and 18th century buildings scattered throughout the National Historic Landmark District. Strolling through Savannah is almost like being transported to a European city with its bustling bistros, cozy cafes, excellent Southern eateries and upscale restaurants. Enjoy the intricate architecture, incredible art galleries, unique boutiques, historic (and often haunted) hotels, magnificent museums, eerily beautiful cemeteries and monuments memorializing historic figures. Get a taste of the city and discover all her secrets by going on one of the many tours and then head out to Tybee Island, a.k.a. “Savannah’s Beach.”

Why is

SAVANNAH

One of America’s MOST HAUNTED

Cities?

Everyone from USA Today to the Travel Channel includes Savannah on their lists of “America’s Most Haunted Cities,” along with New Orleans and Salem, centers of paranormal activity for centuries. But what is it about Georgia’s First City —the 13th colony—that captures the souls of spirits and spurs them to stick around? To find these answers, one must dive into Savannah’s somber history and discover how the city came to have such enigmatic energy on its cobblestone streets underneath moss-laden tree canopies. Here are a few of the most chilling reasons Savannah’s supernatural side makes it one of the most haunted cities in the United States:

Bloody Battles To walk the bloody fields of past wars is often unsettling, but many say it’s not just a feeling, but a reality in Savannah, where catastrophic conflicts abounded throughout the

centuries. From the Siege of Savannah in 1779 (240 killed, 600 wounded), to the American Civil War’s Savannah capture by General T. Sherman, fatal clashes have left their mark. Speculators say that these battles left a spiritual residue and souls of unsettled soldiers lingered on the land and homes of the bloodstained ground.

Deadly Diseases Soldiers aren’t the only restless spirits in Savannah. Many believe victims of the 1820 Yellow Fever epidemic are bound to this earthly realm. In 1820, this disease decimated a tenth of Savannah’s population and nine more epidemics followed—one in 1876 killed 1,066 Savannahians. When harrowing happenings such these befall a community, it is said that those who lost their lives feel they can’t move on because of the agony they endured.

Fearsome Fires The outbreak of disease in 1820 was accompanied by additional devastation on the morning of January 11. A rapidly spreading fire broke out in a stable, destroying

500 buildings before dwindling that afternoon. But this wasn’t the first catastrophic fire Savannah endured—in 1796, a deadly fire ravaged the city, destroying 229 houses and 146 outbuildings. The untimely deaths resulting from these fires is said to have perplexed the deceased, thus linking them to the place of their passing.

Mysterious Murders Everything has a little more dramatic flair in Savannah, even its murders (and ghosts). If you participate in one of the 40+ ghost tours in the Historic District, no doubt, more than one murderous tale will be told: for instance, the crime made popular by “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” (the murder of Jim Williams’ assistant, Danny Hansford, rumored to be a local male prostitute) at the Mercer House on Monterey Square or the controversial 1959 murder of three sisters at 432 Abercorn Street on Calhoun Square. More than a few Savannah antebellum mansions’ pasts are anything but pretty, and the city’s dark secrets are often hidden inside these historic buildings.

Savage Slavery From the settling of Savannah in 1733 until the start of the Civil War, Georgia’s First City was heavily dependent on slave labor. The bustling port city of Savannah played an integral role in the Atlantic slave trade and stories suggest those once enslaved still seek vengeance against their captors. One of the most infamous stories recounts the sinking of French ship Grietely, which arrived in Savannah in 1854 to pick up 71 escaped slaves. The ship sank while exiting Savannah Harbor and sailors still say they feel a force pulling them off course and hear voices speaking in French and Bantu.
