Hilton Head Main

Imagine a country club by the sea and miles of sandy beach for watersports, low-tide biking, or just relaxing under the southern sun. Welcome to Hilton Head.

Here in South Carolina's Low Country, the world moves at a slower pace - but it sometimes takes visitors a while to discover that, simply because there are so many things to do. An abundance of great golf courses and more tennis courts than you can shake a racquet at ... nature walks through Sea Pines Forest Preserve (bring binoculars for a look at pelicans and herons, deer and alligators) and a network of paved fitness trails (rollerbladers, bikers, joggers all welcome)... and beaches where surfers can practice their cutbacks while watching parasailors, kayakers, and waterskiiers also at play. Shopping and gallery walks can also be a part of the daily calendar, along with tours of Civil War fortifications and the Hilton Head Museum with more than 75,000 artifacts relating to the island's history. When the sun finally sets (and the last grown-ups' toys put away for the day), you can look forward to the best in local cuisine, a Low Country barbecue.
