Hunting Island & Charleston SC

My husband and I are planning to spend 3 nights in Hunting Island and 3 nights in Charleston - leaving Florida on the 27th of December. Can any of you tell us about what we can expect weather wise? Any suggestions for a good, upscale restaurant in Charleston? Thanks! Laura

PM Captain Hank. He lives nearby and knows the area really well.

Enjoy the Low Country.

You might camp at James Island county park--very convenient to Charleston

Weather in these parts can be tricky. It could be 80 during the day, 60 at night or it could be 50 during the day, 38 at night. Hopefully its not a cold spell but I typically would expect a windy 60 degree day.

I am from Hilton Head which is not too far from Hunting Island. May I suggest a stop in Hilton Head? We have a tremendous RV park right on the water. I have never stayed over night there but I had my boat at the docks there for a little while and the restaurant is great
Hilton Head Harbor and RV Resort and Marina

As far as Charleston, I would suggest a visit to Boone Hall Plantation, it is a very picture perfect southern style plantation with the typical big southern estate house and working farm. They decorate it with beautiful Christmas decorations for the holidays.

For dinner Try The Pennisula Grill on Market street- their cocoanut cake is famous all across the country Peninsula Grill, Fine Dining, Restaurant, Historic Market, Charleston, SC

We always like to walk through the Charleston place hotel and have a drink as well


Close to Hunting island get fresh seafood from the Gay Fish Company
Gay Fish Company

And stop by the Beaufort downtown park and find one of many waterfront restaurants after some shopping
Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park

If you are looking for anything specific let me know

On your way to Chas, you should take time to see Savannah and Beaufort.
Both beautiful historic cities.
This week it is going to be in the high 60's to mid 70's. Never know when it will change though.

Good information here! Thank you! We actually tried to get into Hilton Head Harbor and it was booked. We do most definitely plan to go into Hilton Head and have a dinner or two there but Charleston was going to be our New Year's Eve place and thought we should go ahead and book something there! I sure appreciate all of the info! Laura

We ended up booking a place at the KOA, tried the James Island County Park as it was our first choice - but no room at the inn! Thank you!

We love Savannah but have never been to Beaufort, so we'll have to check it out! Thank you!

Lucky dog. My dream is to be right on the may river someday with a dock

In Charleston, I would recommend three spots: High Cotton (I don't like grits but love their shrimp & grits), 82 Queen (best She-Crab soup on the planet), and Hominy Grill (more casual with fabulous Bloody Mary). Enjoy! Charleston is one of favorite American cities.

My wife and I will be in Savannah and staying at Red Gate Farm for a couple nights , and leaving New Year's Day for Charleston depending on the weather.


I did book dinner at Alligator Soul. Not sure of where to eat for New Years Eve. I think we will go to Hilton head for lunch as I would like to see the Harbour Town Lighthouse.

Thanks for the tips on Charleston places to Eat.
