Things to do

Civil War history and architecture in Bluffton

Visit the Heyward House and Historical Center, a mid-19th century farmhouse surrounded by green grounds. The house serves as Bluffton’s welcome center and as a period museum, and you can take guided tours around its Civil War-era interiors. Nearby, in Old Town, see the Church of The Cross, a carpenter-Gothic church dating right back to 1857. If you fancy a day trip outside of Bluffton, take a 15-mile drive west to the vast Savannah National Wildlife Refuge. The visitors’ center includes a mini-museum about the refuge – a perfect prelude to exploring its forests and wetland.


Wilderness walks in and around Bluffton

Outdoor adventurers can take a walk on the wild side along the New River Linear Trail – a hiking path that runs along a disused rail line, completely swallowed by lush plant-life. There are a few historic highlights parallel to the trail, too, including an old rice plantation. For a true slice of wilderness, visit Bluffton’s Victoria Bluff Heritage Preserve, an overgrown, luxurious 1,100 acre eden covered in various pine tree species, and home to white-tailed deer and darting foxes. Sports fans, meanwhile, can enjoy a round of golf at one of Bluffton’s courses.


The month of May is tops in Bluffton

Like much of South Carolina, Bluffton has a humid subtropical climate. This means swelteringly hot and humid summers with heavy thunderous rainfall, warm spring months, and mild winter months, where daytime temperatures hover between the 40s and low 60s. The height of summer itself – June through August – can be a bit too hot for some, with temperatures hitting 90 and above. The spring and fall are prime times to travel, with cooler but still pleasant temperatures, and less rainfall. In May, there’s also an enormous annual festival – Mayfest – with live music, food stalls, and parades.
