This Summer was a sweet one at the Palmetto Dunes General Store

The Palmetto Dunes General Store has breakfast and lunch, a candy wall, beach toys, towels, drinks, snacks, souvenirs and an abundance of essentials, but your Hilton Head Island beach vacation isn’t complete until you make a stop (or two) to the General Store for an ice cream or icee.

The General Store welcomed visitors from near and far to Hilton Head Island

Visitors stop by time and time again for their favorite affordable cold treat. We welcomed guests from Philadelphia, Baltimore, Ohio, Virginia, New York, Michigan, Kentucky, Texas and so many more wonderful places.

Hundreds of guests would arrive through the front door of the Palmetto Dunes General Store filled with excitement, as they would head straight to the ice cream machine to make some of the tallest vanilla cones we’ve ever seen!

We hope you shared sweet moments together here at Palmetto Dunes General Store on Hilton Head Island. Thank you to everyone who took the time to visit during their beach vacation at Palmetto Dunes and we look forward to being a part of your Hilton Head vacation next summer.
