Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Hilton Head Island or simply Hilton Head is a Lowcountry resort town located on an island in South Carolina, USA. It is 20 miles north of Savannah, Georgia and 95 miles south of Charleston. The island gets its name from Captain William Hilton. In 1663, Captain Hilton identified a headland near the entrance to Port Royal Sound, which he named "Hilton's Head" after himself. The island features 12 miles of beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean and is a popular vacation destination. In 2004, an estimated 2.25 million visitors pumped more than $1.5 billion into the local economy and that infusion of money is clearly visible in the facilities provided in the island.
There are numerous resorts to stay in, each with their own access to beaches, golf courses, tennis courts and restaurants. Hilton Head is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation, with just the right mix of physical activities and mental relaxation or vice versa if needed.
