Food TOurs Help Folks on HHI "Savor the Lowcountry"

Posted: Updated:
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -

Food Enthusiasts on Hilton Head listen up, there is a new way you can sample several different restaurants in one afternoon---it's all part of a food tour called "Savor the Lowcountry," which was created by Alice Reed after she took a similar tour in Arizona.

"We really loved it, it was probably the most fun thing we did the entire time we were there, and it was my sister that came up with the idea, she turned around and looked at me at the end of the tour and said you don't have one of these in Hilton Head Island and you really should."

And she did......."Savor the Lowcountry" walking food tours last several hours and give folks a chance to savor some food at restaurants in Hilton Head's famous Coligny Plaza.

"We just have so many good restaurants here, that when you come here to vacation, even people that live here, I've taken locals on my tour, and the restaurants that I take them to, they've never been to. So there are so many to choose from, sometimes you miss some of the good ones," said Reed.

For Jay Johnson it was a chance to experience our Island's rich food fare.

"Well we had friends that came to the area, and we have been coming here for the last three years and and they did the tour and loved it. We rent a house every year for the masters, and come up and had seen a lot of restaurants and didn't even realize all these restaurants are here."

Even just a few stops-in he was already a happy customer.

"I love it so far, the food is outstanding, there were certain restaurants that we heard from other people, but these are hidden treasures and we will be coming back to all of them."

And Reed says it isn't just benefiting vacationers---the restaurants are cashing-in on the business from the tours as well.

"They are finding that people are coming back and they are making great, even long-term customers, people who took the tour last year, and are now vacationing again this year so they are seeing an increase in business and it has been great for them," said Reed.

Great for them, and great for our area as folks keep coming back to "Savor the Lowcountry."
