Why Hilton Head Island is the Best Vacation Destination for New Year’s Eve

Hilton Head Island is one of the most beautiful vacation destinations in South Carolina during any season of the year. If you’re planning a holiday trip to the Lowcountry, Hilton Head is one of the most festive locations to spend New Year’s Eve. Here are some suggestions for ringing in the New Year on the island.

Art on the Corner

On Saturdays throughout December, Caretta Coffee Co highlights the works of local artists with Art on the Corner. Plan to have lunch on the patio, enjoy coffee or a celebratory glass of wine and purchase art from local artists. A different artist is showcased each week. The event benefits the Savannah Veteran’s Center and the Coastal Discovery Museum.

White Christmas

Experience a bit of holiday nostalgia on New Year’s Eve and attend the live musical adaptation of the classic film,
White Christmas featuring Irving Berlin’s timeless Christmas song. The musical is performed at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina and is a wonderful event for the family.

Dove Street Festival of Lights

One of Hilton Head’s favorite holiday traditions is the Harbour Town begin at 7 pm with a ball drop from the Harbour Town Lighthouse. The giant golf ball drops again at midnight. The fun continues at Harbour Side Burgers and Brews at the Quarterdeck and Topside Waterfront Restaurant, with food, drinks and party favors.

Nightlife On New Year’s Eve

One of Hilton Head’s glitziest clubs, the XO Lounge at the Hilton Oceanfront Resort, features live music and dancing, cocktail specials, party favors, and a champagne toast at midnight. The resort features the more formal Ballroom party with an open bar, favors, and a dessert table.

If you love smooth jazz, head to the Village At Wexford’s Jazz Corner for music and an early dinner with four courses, or the late, five-course dinner. Robert Irving’s Eat! features a five-course, New year’s Eve menu, a midnight champagne toast, and a complimentary breakfast buffet.

Hilton Head is the ideal choice to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Whether you want to dance into the early hours at a trendy club, or experience more upscale or family-friendly celebrations, Hilton Head has something for everyone. If you are looking to be close to all the New Year’s Eve action and need a place to stay, consider a vacation rental from Beachside Getaway. They offer a wide variety of vacation homes that can accommodate any size group, and are right near all these activities and more.
