We have a flight to Myrtle Beach for our vacation in Hilton Head, SC.. We will be arriving 2 days before our check in. Looking for any suggestions as to what to do for the two days prior to arriving in Hilton Head?
When we are headed back to the airport the following Friday how much time should we allow to get back to Myrtle Beach?

mrytle beach to hilton head on the island is like 3ish hrs. depending on route.. if you go through charleston add 1/2 hr..

things to do in MB.. hang out.. go the the Ripley museum, see the aquarium at Broadway at the beach.

you did not say when this is happening.. that make a big difference.

I would definitely spend the night in between in Charleston. It's a great city to explore. You can also spend hours driving down the coastal route and exploring along the way. You'll have a great time, no matter when the season!

A few in S and VA, a single resort in NC, MD, PA, and UT, plus Jamaica and the Bahamas
We've done day trips to Savannah twice from Hilton Head but always thought an overnight there would be fun.

Charleston, definitely. Plenty of hotel and motel options, and it will break up your long drive nicely. On the way back you might want to spend a night at a motel in the Murrell's Inlet area and go visit Brookgreen Gardens and also if you have time, Atalaya at the state park across the hwy from the gardens. Then you can get a good night's sleep before catching your flight outta Myrtle Beach. (I personally wouldn't want the stress of driving from Hilton Head to Myrtle Beach airport same day as my flight...but then again I don't know if you're planning on taking a late PM or evening flight, which would make it doable.) Have fun!

A couple of popular areas in MB are Broadway at The Beach and Barefoot Landing - lots of shops, restaurants and attractions at each. MB also has a variety of shows/theatres offering music, magic, etc. - the Pirates of the Caribbean was new last year and sold out on a regular basis. There are a couple of water parks - but if you're only there 2 days, I expect your time would be better spent on other activities. There are a boat load of restaurants to choose from. And of course there's the beach - if you like to play in the waves, I've heard alot of people say they prefer the waves in MB over HHI.

Travel time from HHI to MB will vary alot depending where you are in MB (the "MB" area covers 60 miles of beach) - I'd say drive time from HHI to the airport in MB is almost a 4 hr drive.
