On the banks of the May River awaits Bluffton, a little South Carolina town oozing with personality. The downtown area has captured the hearts of South Carolina locals with its trendy atmosphere, its eccentric boutiques and its wide selection of restaurants catering to every preference and taste palette.
Since Bluffton is located right on the riverfront, one of the best things to do in Bluffton is to take a boat trip to the nearby natural areas. Visitors can venture out to explore the wilderness of Palmetto Bluff or take a day trip to Daufuskie Island. There is plenty to do within the town limits itself though -- the various golf courses scattered around enable sports fans to work on their handicap. The weekly farmers market held every Thursday is a great place to pick up local produce, homemade jams and edible souvenirs.
The spring and autumn months are the best time to visit Bluffton. At this point, the temperatures are not too high and humid but they are pleasant enough to enjoy spending outside and on the river.
