For an island that’s only 12 miles by 5 miles, Hilton Head offers hotel guests an impressive array of activities. You can tee off at one of 24 golf courses, dine at the more than 250 restaurants and just begin to satisfy your shopping craving at the more than 200 stores and outlets.
The limited size of the island means it’s easy to get from Hilton Head hotels to the areas many attractions by foot or bike. Follow the more than six miles of paved trails through shaded forests and safely along roadsides; or for an adventure, pack a picnic and ride along the beach during low tide. While there, you can search for shells to create your own unique souvenir, or wash the sand from your feet and head to the Mall at Shelter Cove.
This tiny island is also home to a rich culture, and annual festivals make it easy to learn more and have fun. If you book your hotel in Hilton Head during February, then be sure to join in the Native Islander Gullah Celebration. May’s BRAVO Arts & Cultural Festival isn’t to be missed, and regardless of the time, you can always visit the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina.
