The Beaufort Gazette (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Enough al­ready with the “day trip­per” snark­i­ness com­ing from the main­land. We Hilton Head Is­land res­i­dents know how so very im­por­tant you all are to the sur­vival of Hilton Head.

Geez, if it wasn’t for Bluffton, where would I eat Viet­namese cui­sine? I’ll make sure all the is­land’s peo­ples un­der­stand they need to pros­trate them­selves upon the ar­rival of the main­lan­ders. I like old town Bluffton. It re­minds me of Croy­don, Penn­syl­va­nia, with Span­ish moss. The rest of that area is be­com­ing, sadly, “Any Town USA” very quickly.

It’s what I drive through to get to Sa­van­nah, Charleston, In­ter­state 95, Day­tona. There’s a bowl­ing al­ley some­where over there I hear. It’s where they pro­duce the “Is­land Packet,” I’m told. Ah yes, sin­cere apolo­gies to all you put-upon day-trip­ping main­lan­ders. Wel­come to Hilton Head. Make sure to bring your wal­lets ... y’all. – Chuck LeBold Hilton Head Is­land
