While being large enough to support a wide range of cultural, recreational, and entertainment activities, Bluffton is still small enough to have a real sense of community. High on the banks of the May River, historic Bluffton has antebellum homes, historic churches, eclectic shops, local galleries, and friendly restaurants.
The historical charm of the Old Town brings character to the community and provides its heart, while the elegance of new developments brings world-class golf and retail and commercial convenience close to home.
If golf is what you’re after, Bluffton has eleven public courses to challenge any skill level and views that will leave you breathless!
