Turtle Talks, Butterflies, and Horses at Coastal Discovery
The Costal Discovery Museum is a great family attraction. It's located a little off the main drag in H.H.I., but that's because it is a rather large establishment, on a sizable plot of land. There are horses, butterfly gardens, guided walks and tours, art exhibits, and even turtle talks to inform guests about the healthy population of Loggerhead Sea Turtles that nest along the beach. Also, the property is beautiful, and worth the trip in its own right.

Learn to Cast a Net
Cast-net fishing is one of the oldest forms of fishing, still used in the Lowcountry estuaries for catching shrimp and small fish. Try it out yourself with a local angler, and discover a different Hilton Head pastime than golf.
The class meets at the Coastal Discovery Museum on Tuesdays at 3 p.m. in spring and fall (check online for dates and to register). The fee is $10 per person (open to ages 12+) and a "loaner" net can be provided if you don't have your own.
