We are considering the Bluffton area, maybe even The Inn at Palmetto Bluff (cottage rental) in March of 2014 with our well behaved 45 lb. dog. We want to be able to walk daily on long runs/walks with her and also explore the area for dining, play a little golf and pickleball and generally get away from Northern Michigan snow. Would you recommend this area, or should we go further south? We are not beach or pool people, so the cooler temps are okay with us. Friends have suggested Hilton Head, but it looks too congested to us. Suggestions appreciated.
