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.
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.
