If your idea of the perfect bachelorette party weekend is having tons of casual fun in the sun with a few of life’s luxuries thrown into the mix, a private beach house rental on
Head Island is just the ticket. We recommend Island Getaway Rentals for their fantastic knowledge of their properties and tremendous service. (Ask for Amanda!) Top of the line amenities and
extras make these properties truly special, including private pools, oceanfront
views, and the very best in interior furnishings. Best of all, these gorgeous private
homes are all located within two blocks of the beach or less than a five minute
bike ride to the beach.
Spend the day with your toes in the sand listening to live guitar (The Tiki
Hut) and sipping fun fruity frozen drinks (Pool Bar Jim’s) -- or relaxing by
the pool while you nosh on chili cheese fries and share a gallon jug of slushy
adult fun from The Frosty Frog). After a nice cool shower, hail a Diamond Cab SUV
and head to the outdoor upper deck at Sante Fe Café for dinner, followed by
after dinner drinks and live music at The Jazz Corner at Wexford or The Piano
Bar in .
To wind up your fun in the sun bachelorette weekend, a casual, laid back patio
Sunday brunch at Sunrise Café -- featuring the Sea Pines Center Island’s
-- is a must. PS: The
shrimp hash is to DIE for! BEST Bloody Mary
For brides who are looking for a little spice to heat up the Southern sweet in their bachelorette party weekend,
Savannah – just a 45
drive from the beaches of Hilton Head Island –
is the perfect blend of bright lights and historic gentility, making it a
fabulous destination. Named one of the Top
30 Hotels in the South by Conde Nast Traveler, The Bohemian Hotel, located
historic riverfront, is one of the hippest and hottest hotels in town,
featuring a roof top bar that boasts the best view of the city bar none. Spend
the day shopping and lunching on famous Broughton Street, return to The
Bohemian in time for Happy Hour at Rocks
on The Roof, enjoy a fabulous Italian dinner at Garibaldi’s, and then head out
for a hot and spicy Southern night at the clubs on River Street.
