A real estate blog has named Hilton Head Island the No. 1 place to retire in South Carolina.

Movoto, a website that covers real estate trends around the country, touted the island's weather, low crime rate and activities for retirees as reasons for its ranking.

The site mentioned similar aspects about Bluffton, which was ranked No. 2. Beaufort finished No. 7 and Port Royal was No. 11.

The statewide rankings were based on cost of living, crime rates, weather, ease of travel and amenities, according to an email from Movoto spokesman Chad Stiffney. The list only covered municipalities with at least 10,000 people, he said.
