Trolley Driver, Palmetto Breeze Trolley

For a stress-free way to navigate the island and its summer traffic, hop on the Palmetto Breeze Trolley, Hilton Head Island’s version of public transportation. This nostalgic turn-of-the-century looking streetcar will connect you to some of the most popular destinations on America’s favorite island: shopping and groceries, world-class restaurants, the beach, movie theatres, arts and culture stops, and a host of island activities and adventures. Once aboard, you may run into Dave Kennemur, who will be your guide for this trip.

What is the most popular stop on the trolley route?
That would be Coligny Plaza and Shelter Cove Harbour. I would say those are the main two attractions.

How long have you lived in the Lowcountry and what brought you here?
I’ve lived here for about three years but have been visiting for a lot longer than that. There’s something about this island that lures you in and makes you want to stay.

What do you love most about living here?
The people and the beaches. Best beaches in the world.

What is the most frequently asked question by our visitors, and what is your answer?
Where should we eat? I have a lot of answers for them. Three I mention frequently are ELA’s, One Hot Mama’s and Captain Woody’s.

What is your favorite annual event or festival?
The fireworks at Shelter Cove Harbour, and there’s always some sort of food festival going on.

If you could advise our visitors to do just one thing while they are here, what would it be?
Go to the beach—and if you like sites and attractions, Harbour Town is very beautiful as well. Get to know the island’s history; there’s a lot to it. Enjoy the wildlife as well. How many people have alligators in their backyard?
