HEAD OUTDOORS IN NATURE ON HHI TO HAVE A GREAT TIME

A WHEEL GOOD TIME

Hilton Head Island recently saw its Gold-Level Bike Friendly Community status re-affirmed, with the added bonus of being named the most bike-friendly community in South Carolina. It’s a well-earned title; the island boasts 6 miles of bike lanes, 117 miles of shared-use pathways, 108 miles of paved shared-use paths, 14 miles of planned pathways, and 1 mile of single track stretching across the island. Bikers of all abilities are sure to find the perfect path for their two-wheeled exploration of the island.

PREP EARLY FOR HURRICANES TO STAY SAFE

Recently, Gov. Henry McMaster warned residents of the Lowcountry and the rest of the state to get ready for an active storm season. 

“Here we are, in hurricane season in the middle of a pandemic,” said McMaster, who called the next five months “a heavy hurricane year” because forecasters predict an above average number of hurricanes with greater than normal strength.
