Great news coverage for HIlton Head and surrounding municipalities

Our family has loved and enjoyed the news coverage which is objective and interesting.
We rely on the internet version on our IPad and iPhone which makes the coverage available to us whenever and wherever. Sometimes we will get a pop-up while we are resting during a long walk on the beach or paths.

It is a great way to keep up on the local news, even while we are traveling to visit our kids in NY - Mass or when we are in our summer house in the Adirondacks

Love the Island Packet on line

I love reading the Packet every morning with a cup of coffee here in Asheville NC.
I have lived away from HHI for almost 15 years and the Packet helps me to feel a part of the Island community. I especially love David Lauderdale's human interest stories.

It’s a great way for us to keep up with what is going on at a place we can’t wait to return to.
