    This is a really nice spot with gorgeous beaches, lovely resorts, and plenty of activities to keep an entire family busy for a week. Great for a relaxing getaway.

    It is definitely a family destination and renting a vacation home for a week is an ideal thing to do. We saw license plates from all over like Virginia, New York and even Illinois. The sandy beaches here are clean and the water is warm. We met another family here so the trip was really nice.

    Absolutely the best, most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. Went with two friends and we plan to return next month.

    Nice tourist spot to water, to live an exclusively tourist oriented island.. small shop shopping. Hilton head itself entertains you for about a week.. you will not need to go anywhere thereon. Clean waters too.

    There's a lot to do on this island off the very southern coast of South Carolina! Outdoor enthusiasts will love the bike trails throughout the island; the beach and ocean draw families and nature lovers. Close by is Bluffton SC which has a very walkable historical section of the city. There are plenty of art pieces for sale throughout the island and the surrounding areas. Tanger Outlets are a reasonable distance away if you want to shop. Hilton Head Island has many retail stores and restaurants on the island; thrift stores also abound. There are also several different supermarket chains if you're staying in a condo and need food supplies. No matter what your age this is an island that appeals to all.

    Hilton Head is a beautiful vacation spot, with its postcard-perfect beaches and lighthouses. Unfortunately it seems to have overgrown itself in the past few years, with chain restaurants crowding out the authentic charm.

    "This was our first trip to Hilton Head and it was exciting to see the area. It is a beautiful place with lots of great places to eat. We enjoyed trying different restaurants as well as shopping at the outlets and local shops."

    My grandparents lived in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for many years, and growing up I was lucky to visit them once a year at their plantation. Hilton Head is lush and pristine, the beaches are perfect and the seafood and Southern cuisine is fantastic. My favorite part about Hilton Head Island is that neon signs, bright street lights and tall building are not allowed on the Island so that residents can see the stars at night. My kind of place!

    Hilton Head is also a very profitable golf community...just be careful of the alligators!

    Hilton head is a really good place for families. You can go to the coligny beach and catch some waves, or shop at Island Girl and other little boutiques. I'd recommend going to Pool Bar Jim's if it's warm out. Sea pines is really fun! You can climb the lighthouse and look over the marsh. It's beautiful! Hilton head also has great seafood!

    Fun place to play in the waves and on a beach. The beach is big and spectacular. The Tiki Hut on the beach is a great place to go for snacks, lunch, drinks and volleyball watching.

    We've been coming to Hilton Head since I was 4 years old. We love staying at Ocean One because it's in the center of all the action...the beaches are sandy white and there is a ton of things to do!

    Hilton Head Island should be at the top of the list for places to visit on the East Coast and if you haven't already done so, my guess is if you make here once, it won't be your last!

    A little too uninclusive for my tastes. If you like golf and old white people, then it is ideal.

Description

The Florida Keys and the Hawaiian Islands excluded, Hilton Head Island is one of the most beautiful island vacation destinations in the United States. This semi-tropical stretch of thirteen miles of paradise is a supremely popular tourist destination, especially for fans of golfing and sport fishing. The island's 33,000 residents are afforded a pleasant climate year-round, enabling locals and visitors with world class golfing and fishing without having to worry too much about the weather. There are over nine miles of beautiful white sandy beach on which to enjoy the sun, and the warm Atlantic waters here are home to various sport fish and even a bustling population of dolphins that can be enjoyed from the comfort of a number of dolphin excursion providers. Dining options here are varied, but exceptional southern barbecue is one of the most easy-to-find types of the cuisine here. Hilton Head Island is indeed a vacation paradise, and although the climate, attractions, and various ... read more
restaurants are certainly a draw, the real charm here rests in the abounding southern hospitality that comes complementary with everything.
