Definitely add this to your stroll around town list. Friendly folks and nice shops. Check out the Church of the Cross, built in 1854, really neat.

When my wife and I moved to Bluffton thirteen years ago, Old Town was a quaint throwback to a bygone era. To say there have been some changes would be a gross understatement. Today Old Town Bluffton is replete with good restaurants, pubs, boutiques, art...More

I love Old Town Bluffton. You can go get a cup on coffee, walk around, have lunch or dinner, maybe a cocktail. Go down by the water and enjoy the view. Lots of shops to visit too!

Help with day trip stops on Charleston to Savannah route (4 Replies)
I need help narrowing down what to see on our 1 day drive from Charleston to Savannah. Assuming we want to arrive in Savannah late afternoon, I'm guessing we only have time to stop at a couple places.

One option: Lunch in Beaufort, an hour in Hunting Island State Park for a short Lighthouse hike, then just a brief coffee stop in Bluffton before heading to Savannah. We could leave out Bluffton,...More
