Biking: Some may suggest that there’s really no need for a car on this island that’s twelve miles long by five miles wide, with relatively flat terrain. One can travel from place to place on the 60 miles of designated bike lanes and more than 200 miles of shared paths. Sometimes you can see much more when you go slowly and take it all in.
Explore the Great Outdoors: You’ll find no shortage of activities to keep you busy outdoors. Aside from biking, hiking, and golf, there are over 350 tennis courts, preserves, wildlife refuges, zip lining, numerous water activities, and neighboring islands to visit. Explore Daufuskie and Pinckney Island. Embark on a catamaran or dolphin cruise. Parasail at H20 Sports. Check out the Sea Pines Forest Preserve. The opportunities are endless.
Festivals: Hilton Head is host to many festivals throughout the year. Make a special visit to attend a festival or stumble upon one while on vacation. Either way, you won’t be disappointed!
Relax and disconnect: Take a walk, ride a bike, BBQ with friends, layout by the pool, swim in the ocean, or just enjoy nature… anything to soak in “Lowcountry living.
BONUS: Savannah and Bluffton: If you have some extra time before or after your visit to Hilton Head, check out Savannah, a coastal Georgia City separated from South Carolina by the Savannah River. You can also visit Bluffton, which you pass on your way onto Hilton Head Island. Bluffton is a cute, little town with a downtown area known as Old Town.
