Christmas Lights on Hilton Head Island

Visitors are invited every year to see the lights shine bright on Hilton Head Island for the holidays. Bring your friends and family while on your vacation and enjoy the magic of the season.

Shelter Cove Towne Centre and Community Park 

Shelter Cove gives you a reason to “Believe”. Walk down the main road and visit a mixture of local and popular stores (see above). Enjoy unique decorations that each store has put up to celebrate. A favorite and popular place to visit is Kilwins for a delicious cup of holiday hot cocoa. With the cocoa warming you up,  take a  walk around the beautiful Christmas tree that sits in the center of the park.

Harbour Town Marina

Visit Harbour Town Marina for a fun-filled walk to the Harbour Town Lighthouse! On the walking path, you will pass the beautiful yachts decorated for Christmas! The owners take great pride in decorating their boats each Holiday Season to show off their unique light decorations. You will also pass the shops that have decorated their store windows and the walking path. A popular sight is the Lighthouse. The structure is calming and exciting all at once. On display from  November 25 to January 1, don’t forget to take photos to capture the memories. There is also a gorgeous Christmas Tree for fun family photos!

Fire Station

The Hilton Head Firefighters Christmas Lights display is back at Fire Rescue Station 3 (534 William Hilton Parkway)! Every corner of the station has a different unique display. Keep an eye out for Santa Claus!


Santa & Sirens

Every year, Fire Rescue plans this fun and popular tour of Island neighborhoods, featuring Santa aboard a fire engine. From
December 2 to December 15, at 6:00 p.m., keep an eye out on the Town of Hilton Head Island’s website and social media pages for information on which neighborhoods Santa will be visiting each night.

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and enjoy the holiday lights around Hilton Head Island.
