Sunny, beautiful Hilton Head Island is known worldwide for its top-notch golf courses and tennis facilities.

It's also home to long stretches of white, sandy beaches, great shopping and some of the best fineand casual dining in the South. Located 90 miles south of Charleston and 30 miles north of Savannah, it's the second-largest barrier island on the East Coast. It's 12 miles long and 5 miles wide.

Just over the bridge, Bluffton is one of the fastest-growing areas in the state. More than 40,000 people currently reside in greater Bluffton. Known for its zany eccentricity, Bluffton is a hot spot for Lowcountry artists, antiques and collectibles, as well as retail shopping centers.

Experience Hilton Head Island & Bluffton features community events and activities that occur between Memorial Day and Labor Day, including music, theater, tours, sports exhibitions, art festivals, museum walks and educational opportunities for the whole family.
