Brrr! It’s wintertime, and you’ve booked a Hilton Head Island vacation. Time to pack! You have the general packing list down pat. You know that you’ll need your toothbrush, some changes of clothes, and undergarments, of course! But what should you pack to keep you comfortable in the cooler temps? We have some ideas:

Luckily, the island’s climate generally stays around 60-65 degrees, making it a perfect getaway destination, but it could get a little chilly in the mornings and evenings.

Grab a Light Jacket

There may not be much need for a coat during your Hilton Head vacation, but better to be on the safe side. Checking the weather before your trip can aid you in making the best selections for what to pack; however, the weather can change in a hurry, and you’ll want to be prepared. Ideally, bringing an all-weather jacket could benefit you in the event of any inclement weather.

Sweater Weather

A cardigan is a perfect addition to any outfit! Not only will they keep you cozy, but they’re easy to shed when you get too warm from biking around or shopping the many great stores and markets that Hilton Head offers. Then, when the temperature drops in the evenings, you can slip it back on while sitting by the fire and gazing at the starry sky.


The all-importance of what shoes to bring with you may not cross many people’s minds, but it is essential. The best shoes for hiking are waterproof boots, and the best for simply walking along the nature trails would be a good, comfy pair of sneakers. Of course, if you’re going to a fancy lunch or dinner, you may want to pack a decent pair of low-heeled or flat shoes.

The best tip to remember is that even if you need something that you didn’t pack, there are multiple shopping centers all over the island to help you find just what you need! Enjoy your wintry vacation!
