Aspen Square Management Blog Post
By: Dylan Burke

When I think about one-of-a-kind towns in the U.S., Bluffton, South Carolina is always at the top of my mind! Moss trees line the streets of “old town Bluffton” and guide you through this charm of a hidden gem along the coast of South Carolina!

Corner Perk - Bluffton, SC

Caffeine & Live Music

Cozy up at the newly remodeled Corner Perk for a cup of locally roasted coffee as you start your day in paradise. While Corner Perk is a favorite local place to grab your daily dose of caffeine, the café also doubles as a phenomenal music hall! Just upstairs, in the newly renamed “Roasting Room”, local artists as well as popular bands making their way cross-country stop here to perform for the locals of Bluffton. Talk about a place that really offers a multitude of excitement! Visit their website to view their menu and see what musical acts are coming next!

Bluffton's Prime Location

Another wonderful perk about Bluffton is its prime location. Just a fifteen-minute drive east and you can kick back on the beautiful Hilton Head Island beach. Meanwhile, 30 minutes in the opposite direction is the idyllic city of Savannah, Georgia. Should you choose a beach day, drive to Coligny Beach Park at low tide, rent a bike and leave your worries behind you as you journey along the coast. Aspen Square has three different apartment communities located in Bluffton, SC.

Enjoy farm to table cuisine at FARM Restaurant

A Foodie Hub

In the evenings, Bluffton is a “foodie-hub” of the East Coast and has countless dining options. Among personal favorites are FARM and Buffalo’s. FARM offers an unparalleled experience for all the senses. Located in the heart of the delightful downtown area, this farm-to-table concept restaurant infuses locally-farmed ingredients into its menu which changes daily. FARM’s head chef, Brandon, challenges himself to prepare every dish to perfection as food is his absolute passion. This revelation is comforting to a fellow foodie like myself who always enjoys dining with a sense of purpose. Visit their Facebook page to stay up to date with what's on the menu.

A second recommendation is Buffalo’s. Don’t be thrown off by the name as it is one of the most charming and elegant restaurants that South Carolina has to offer. Buffalo’s offers a well-curated “modern-American” menu which pairs well with the restaurant’s laid-back, Southern-styled interior.  Located in the ethereal Palmetto Bluff neighborhood, you are able to sit and sip seasonal craft cocktails while you enjoy the wonderful ambiance of the neighborhood – the kind of ambiance that keeps South Carolina safely locked away in your heart forever.

Enjoy the beautiful Bluffton sunsets.

With a paramount of activities and sunsets that set fire to the sky, Bluffton is certainly a city to keep your eye on for future travel!
