Rita's Italian Ice is always one of our "mandatory" stops in Hilton Head. We have been going here for over 8 years.

We have already been 3 times this trip. I love the ice flight so you can try 4 different flavors. My kids loved S’mores and I love Swedish Fish!

Love Ritas! Always have to make a stop here! The gelati is my family's favorite...italian ice with frozen custard on top. Yummy and reasonably priced.

Rita’s has become a family favorite. The custard is even more creamy than Culver’s. I found a new love when I was there this time. The Strawberry Gelati with a dap of vanilla custard, WOW!

This was a typical Ritas, offering frozen custard drinks, cups, and cones. My husband ordered a hot fudge sundae and said it was wonderful!

Skip the fancy desserts at the restaurants and make Rita’s a regular stop during your vacation. Our fam is a fan of the gelato but they have lots of great options! Always good!!
