    November is a beautiful time to get out and enjoy the world-class golf courses, marvelous restaurants and amazing shops and boutiques spread all across our boot-shaped island. With cool weather finally settling in, theres no better time to enjoy the outdoors and do a little exploring, so be sure to grab a bicycle and see where the 50 miles of bike paths take you!

    It might be a little too chilly to go swimming but that doesnt mean you cant get out on the water with dolphin and discovery cruises and off shore fishing charters. Just dont forget to relax and enjoy this beautiful gem of the Lowcountry, which has 12 miles of shoreline, beach parks at every other beach access point, hammocks hanging around resorts as well as beach volleyball and tennis courts waiting to be enjoyed.

    Whether you decide to stay in Shipyard, Palmetto Dunes, Harbour Town, South Beach or around Coligny, there are all kinds of excit-ing activities going on that are sure to grab your attention. The Oyster Fest will take over Shelter Cove Community Park November 13-15, while Salty Dogs Thanksgiving Homecoming will take over South Beach on November 25. All kinds of other exciting happenings can be found on our Calendar of Events, including the Turkey Trot, which Katie Hatfield talks about in her piece, Hot on the RUNway.

    Also in this issue, Jessie Renew lets us know which of these fun events make it a point to give back to the community and shares how we can make November A Giving Month, while Miles Altman and Kathleen McMenamin take us to the waters and teach us about flounder and Atlantic ribbed mussels. Golf Instructor and former PGA Pro Doug Weaver brings us back to land and takes us out on Hilton Heads world-class golf courses to share why he is thankful for the sport and Georgene Mortimer takes us to her winery to explain what wines we should pair with pizza.

    We hope all of our listings are helpful in guiding you to some of the very best that the island has to offer. As always, the best of the Lowcountry and the Coastal Empire is just a click away at hiltonhead.com, hiltonheadisland.com, bluffton.com, savannah.com, stsimonsisland.com and beaufort.com. Its there youll find digital copies of all of our publications and a wealth of information about what to do while youre here. All of our websites are accessible via smartphone, so you can find the best shops, restaurants and activities no matter where you are.

    We hope you enjoy your time on Hilton Head Island and come back to see us again soon!
