The Rhett House Inn, situated one block from the Intracoastal Waterway, is nestled among 18th-century mansions and moss-draped oaks within Beaufort’s downtown district. The seaport town’s three centuries of history are on display throughout historic forts, churches, and homes—including the pre-Revolutionary War William Elliot House. Walking tours showcase select homes such as the John Mark Verdier House Museum, which illuminates the life of a 19th-century merchant planter before the days of robot tractors. The Saltus River Grill, a five-minute walk from the inn, specializes in Lowcountry fare, a cuisine unique to coastal South Carolina. Chef Brian Waters, a Beaufort native, sources local ingredients for dishes such as clams steamed in beer with roasted-garlic puree ($7) and sea-island shrimp with creamy stone-ground grits ($23).
By founding Bon Bicycles, Adam Kurtz is just following his natural inclination to assist those in need. In his free time, when he isn't delivering rental beach cruisers across Hilton Head Island, Adam works as a paramedic. He is devoted to helping others, and his business reflects that. A portion of the business's profits goes to Hope in the Light, a mission in Boucan, Haiti, committed to providing safe living conditions, clean water, nutritious food, and an education for the children in their orphanage and school.
Adam helps out his clients by making the rental process as simple as possible. Customers reserve a HHWheels beach cruiser and arrange to have it delivered anywhere on Hilton Head Island at any time of any day. A week later, a Bon Bicycles representative picks the bike up. Five sizes of bike are available, from attachable trail-a-bikes up to full Adult models. Youth sizes and above come with a basket, and renters receive a combination lock for every two bikes to keep them from being stolen or to help them, maybe, fall in love.
Featured on ESPN, MTV, the Today Show, and numerous other media outlets, Fathead’s high-definition images of athletes, team logos, mascots, and stadiums turn vertical surfaces into full-fledged fan meccas. Unlike posters or framed photographs, the images’ high-grade tear- and fade-resistant vinyl adheres directly to the wall without the need for nails or tape. The low-tack adhesive that backs each Fathead makes it easy to remove and relocate stars such as Tom Brady to any smooth surface, allowing his likeness to infuse game rooms with playoff excitement or act as a scarecrow during troublesome Baltimore Raven infestations. The store’s stock even goes beyond athletics, as Fatheads of musicians, cartoon characters, and artistic images add personalized flair to kids’ rooms or living areas.
