OK Locals, I need your advice...our flight just got changed and we arrive at 7pm (instead of 5pm); we originally wanted to pick up the car & drive straight to Hilton Head Island but now I'm not certain...we will be there in mid-February
- how early does it get dark?
- is it an easy, well lit drive?

The other option is simply spend the night at an airport hotel & head out in the morning? Which hotel would you recomend?

Decisions, decisions....

You're flying into the Savannah/Hilton Head Airport? It's only a 35 mile drive, if that, to HHI and is all 4 lane highway and is very clearly marked.

It gets dark around 6:30 this time of year but it would not be a difficult drive to your destination.

Thanks for yoour quick reply Ellie!

Yes we arrive in SAV (Savannah/Hilton Head Airport).

I'm so glad that you answered, a 4 lane highway I can handle at anytime, and 35 miles will not kill me even after 14+ hours to get there...

"head out in the morning?" no! no! no!

traffic onto HHI can be very bad in the AM.
the employed drive onto the island to work
my rule is do not try to get on island until after 10 am and be off before 3 pm
