Holidays on Hilton Head Island

The days on the calendar are flying by, which means the end of another year is rapidly approaching. If you're looking for a memorable way to celebrate New Year's Eve, pack your bags and head to Hilton Head Island. This popular South Carolina destination has everything you need to close the year with a bang.

Thanks to its relaxing atmosphere and endless adventures, Hilton Head is an ideal vacation destination any time of year, including winter. Squeeze in as many memories as possible before the clock strikes midnight by checking out all the NYE fun near your rental from Beach Properties of Hilton Head. To help you get the most out of your final vacation of the year, we've put together a list of things to do and see this New Year's Eve.

Where to Dine

No matter what your plans are, a key to being able to stay up all night is a delicious and filling dinner. Hilton Head is filled with world-class restaurants that provide just that, and some even offer a special NYE menu. We recommend Ombra Cucina Italiana, A Lowcountry Backyard Restaurant, or Skull Creek Boathouse.

Where to Celebrate

From watching ball drops to toasting at local Hilton Head bars, there are plenty of ways to ring in the start of a new year.

  • Make your way to Sea Pines Resort to witness the annual Harbour Town Lighthouse Ball Drop. Enjoy live music and food throughout Harbour town as you wait for the ball drop, which takes place at 7 p.m. and midnight.

  • Get an early start to your celebrations on a New Year's Eve dinner cruise with Vagabond Cruise. Enjoy a tasty meal prepared by the award-winning Sea Pines Resort chefs while taking in the panoramic view. The cruise pulled into the harbor in time for the 7 p.m. ball drop.

  • Purchase your tickets for The Rooftop Bar's NYE Bash. Doors open at 7 p.m. for this 21-and-up event. Enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne as you dance the night away to the beats of three phenomenal DJs.

What to Do

Of course, you don't have to limit your fun to only things after the sun goes down on Dec. 31. Go for a freezing dip in the Harbour Town Pool for the annual Polar Bear Swim on Jan. 1 – check online for event updates as they become available. Go for one last hike while reflecting on your goals for the upcoming year on popular trails.
