Hilton Head Island is in South Carolina, with an approximate population of 33,000. It is fairly close to Savannah, Georgia. It is located on a beautiful, semi-tropical 12 mile barrier island. It is a vacation playland with famous beaches and great golf courses that overlook the Atlantic Ocean.

Contents

Get in

By car

  • US 278. This US Highway is the main thoroughfare of Hilton Head and can be reached by Interstate 95, a primary interstate highway on the Eastern Seaboard.

By plane

  • Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, SAV. It is located near Savannah, about an hour away from the island.
  • Hilton Head Island Airport, HHH, which is serviced only by USAirways Express, connecting through Charlotte, NC.

Get around

  • A car is a near necessity in Hilton Head. Walking and biking paths are very limited, and most businesses are along 278 (known as William Hilton Parkway on the island).

See

  • Harbour Town. Visit to see how the other half lives. Admire the multi-million dollar yachts in many different marinas and sailing in the Atlantic Ocean.

Do

  • Championship golf courses - There are almost too many to count. Among the best:** Harbour Town Golf Links - While it has one of the most expensive greens fees in the Hilton Head area, here you can play the same course as the pros, as Harbour Town hosts the Heritage (currently the Verizon Heritage) golf tournament every April.
    • Hilton Head National - Just off the island on US 278, this course is a Gary Player design. It has 27 holes with the "original" 18 of a more traditional design, the newest 9 are the most challenging. Always in great shape, but also always very busy: expect 5 hour rounds and delays.
