How would you show visitors what it’s like to live here?

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At a handbell choir rehearsal at St. Luke’s Church on Hilton Head Island, we asked: “If you were hired to show tourists what life is really like where you live, what would you show them or have them do?”

Elizabeth Glick, Hilton Head Island: “I’d take them on a Salty Dog sunset dolphin cruise.”

Nina Rodman, Hilton Head Island: “I would recommend the new Lowcountry Celebration Park – and a turtle walk on the beach with the Turtle Trackers.”

Annie Smithers, Hilton Head Island: “I’d show them anything Gullah, and take them to Coastal Discovery Museum. They have so many programs!”












Jan Hunter, Hilton Head Island: “I’d take them to the Gullah Museum on Gumtree and tell them there are people who still live here that are descendants of those long-ago residents.”

Vicki Sayers, Hilton Head Island: “I would take them to Honey Horn and let them explore the grounds and museum.”
