Now that Thanksgiving has passed, the sights and sounds of Christmas are everywhere on Hilton Head Island. Your holiday vacation wouldn’t be complete without seeing all the bright, festive light displays that will delight any age! Thankfully, there is no shortage of places to visit on the island to do just that!

Lights, Camera, Christmas!

Shelter Cove Towne Centre
Of course, the Shelter Cove Lane stores have decorated everything with snowflakes, nutcrackers, and lights! Shop, play, and make memories.

Shelter Cove Marina
Come see lights, festive décor, and King Neptune in a Santa hat! This time of the year, you’ll likely see some boats at the marina festooned with lights too!

Harbour Town
The kids (and adults!) will be delighted to see animated snowmen, trains, and maybe even St. Nick himself at Harbour Town. The shops are sparkling with hundreds of lights, and even the lighthouse has decked its halls! The holiday lights twinkle in their reflections in the water, a magical sight!

South Beach Marina Village
Christmas-themed inflatables will lead you to light-covered canopies and decks at South Beach Marina Village and amongst all the shops is a small nativity scene that captures that warm and fuzzy holiday spirit.


Hoping to get a peek at Santa before the day arrives? He and Mrs. Clause will be hanging around Shelter Cove this holiday season on various days. So, you better not pout, you better not cry, and you better have your Christmas lists ready! Don’t forget to bring a camera!

Grab a cup of cocoa, leave out those cookies for the big guy, and soak up all the Christmas cheer on your vacation. Come and have a holly, jolly Christmas on Hilton Head Island. Reserve your spot today!
