More About
Bluffton, SC

About BlufftonBluffton was named for its location overlooking the May River. With giant moss-draped oaks, small stores, antebellum houses and quaint country churches, the historic district has managed to retain its small-town charm despite the changing pace as nearby Hilton Head Island grew into a booming tourist destination. The highway that connects the island to the mainland runs through the outskirts of Bluffton.

The wooden, Gothic-style Church of the Cross , on Calhoun Street, was built in 1857 and has survived the onslaught of Union soldiers, hurricanes and modern development.

May River Excursions, 81 Calhoun St., provides water taxi service to and from Daufuskie Island; phone (843) 304-2878 for reservations.
