Hilton Head Island planning notes

Posted on: May 28, 2009

Free public tennis courts:   Chaplin Park. Turn left out of the resort, and go 2 lights (at the Exxon station). Turn right and then a left into the parking lot for the courts. They were beautiful courts, and since DD plays on the HS tennis team, I’ve seen quite a few courts lately  these blew away a lot of the “club” courts that I’ve seen.

Directions to Frankie Bones from Disney’s HHI resort:  Turn left out of the resort and it’s in the Main St Village towards the north end of the island. It’s up in the Hilton Head Plantation area.

Directions to Flamingo’s Cafe:  Turn right out of the resort. Go towards Sea Pines, straight thru the traffic circle and turn left into the shopping center right before the Sea Pines guard gate. It’s in the shopping center with the Harris Teeter & Mellow Mushroom. Go past those, and Flamingo’s is on the far end of the shopping center next to the UPS shop. While they do the doughnuts in the morning, it’s also a Mediterranean Cafe for lunch and dinner.

Resort tips & notes: We really liked the pool side room, it wasn’t loud at all, then again it really wasn’t busy. We were able to pick up the Wi-Fi signal from the balcony and when the kids were down at the pool area, we could watch them or toss down the goggles they forgot.   We had a marsh view room (bldg 27) last time we were there, and it was nice but the bugs can be bad. I actually asked when we checked in how the bugs were and she said “they’re getting better, let’s put you in next to the pool” No problems at all with bugs there, and we often had the door open to the balcony.
