How To Impress Your Valentine

How To Impress Your Valentine

Valentine Day 2017 is coming!  Are you ready?  Do you need an idea or two about a great Valentine gift?  You’re a true romantic who is looking at more than a box of chocolates or dozen roses.  You want something really special that will create a memory for many years to come.

We have the perfect gift – Hilton Head Island.

Yes, Hilton Head Island.  It is back, stronger than ever after last Fall’s bout with Hurricane Matthew.  This Island Paradise offers you a romantic getaway for RVers with one of the finest motorcoach resorts in the country – the Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort as well as it beautiful beaches, award winning bike trails, world class restaurants, … well, let’s take a quick review of the things you and your loved one will enjoy about a romantic getaway in your motorcoach to Hilton Head Island and HHIMR.

BEAUTIFUL BEACHES AND WATER FUN

In a recent Trip Advisor survey of couples, 21% stated that a beach trip was their favorite getaway venue.  Laying out in the sun with your loved one, taking leisurely walks hand in hand, the scent of the ocean but not just any beach for your loved one!   If you are looking for a wonderful beach, be sure to include Hilton Head Island on that list.  ROMANTIC TIP:  The beach at Hilton Head Island is a wonderful breakfast spot, snuggling on a blanket, watching the sunrise one beautiful morning. In the evening, it is another relaxing place to walk hand-in-hand to the sounds of the surf.  Did you know the HHIMR is less than 2 miles from the best beaches on Hilton Head Island?  When you wish to get off the beach, you can swim, kayak, canoe or take a cruise in the Sound or off the Coast for fun and discovering our resident marine life, including the beloved bottle-nosed dolphin.  But what about those who want a faster mode of travel?

BIKING HERE IS AN ART

The Town of Hilton Head Island is recognized as one of the top 25 bicycle-friendly communities in the United States and one of 21 to achieve the Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community (BFCsm) award from the League of American Bicyclists. But if you don’t bring a bike with you, don’t worry.  Hilton Head Island has many bicycle rental businesses to meet the needs of our guests.  The Bike Doctor, for example, gives $5 off its rentals to our guests at HHIMR.  Bike riding on the Island is very popular on the bike trails and on the beach!  At low tide, couples can often be seen riding their cruiser bikes on the beach from the North Side to Coligny Beach to Sea Pines or on any of the incredible bike trails around HHI.   Biking is not only healthy for you but also fun as you can each ride a bike or rent a bicycle built for two!

FOOD FOR ANY TASTES

After spending time on the beach, then riding around the Island, you will build up quite an appetite.  So what are you hungry for; BBQ, seafood, steaks, fine dining, take out or a pizza on the beach at sunset?  You can even have your romantic dinner cruising on the Calibogue Sound or off the Coast.  The variety is endless in Hilton Head but world class chefs live on this Island Paradise so whatever your tastes, you will find a restaurant here ready to cook up your meal!

Signes Bakery on Arrow Road offers her famous stuffed French toast, seen on the Food Network, which was Rachel Ray’s favorite!  Aunt Chilada’s Easy Street Cafe has delicious tacos – and we mean all types of tacos from Fried Grouper, Pulled Pork, Grilled Mahi, Avocado – for as little as $4.50!   Annie O’s Southern Eats, just outside HHIMR, was voted HHI’s best southern food.  They currently have a BOGO special throughout February 28 and they offer pick up on their Supper Club meals.

If you desire a little vino before or during your meal, our restaurants offer the finest wines for your selection but the Island also boasts excellent wineries and vineyards for the discriminating wine connoisseur.  And for dessert?  There are outstanding selections for ice cream, frozen yogurt, bakery specialties and more.  After indulging in all of the culinary treats from breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night, you and your love might wish to get back on those bicycles!  🙂

ARTS FOR THE CULTURED IN US

Looking for classical music?  Our Hilton Head Symphony offers concerts this year offering Lowcountry Pops (February), Mendelssohn (March), Braham’s A German Requiem (April) and Beethoven Seventh Symphony (May).  If you are looking for a little Broadway on the Coast, check out the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina with their productions this year of Leading Ladies (February), Sister Act (April-May) and Mama Mia (June-August).

The Arts Center also offers a Presenting Series of one-night performances featuring stars from Broadway such as Laura Osnes, another night with the Broadway Tenors and many more.  Plus there are many more offerings to enjoy from community theaters, live bands, dancing the night away and making memories singing Karaoke to your loved one.  Not saying what kind of memories, though.

THE MOTORCOACH RESORT

Beyond all that this Island Paradise offers, when you bring your motorcoach to the HHIMR, we also offer many popular activities throughout the week, a Fitness Center, a great pool, first class tennis courts, Pickelball, basketball, Wi-Fi and a comprehensive cable lineup if you should choose to stay in one evening for an evening of TV.  If you are in the Resort on a Friday evening at 5:30pm, stop in at the Clubhouse for their Meet and Greet with owners and other guests.  They will also have some other local favorite spots you might wish to check out.

So as you look for ideas for a special Valentine Day gift, think about a special trip to this Island Paradise we call Hilton Head Island.  Even if the gift is not for a trip in February, when you do visit in the warmer months of 2017, you can count on a memorable time on Hilton Head Island and the Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort.  See you soon and Safe Travels!
