Discover South Carolina's colorful history

For a glimpse at the island's legacy, the red-and-white striped Harbor Town Light is well worth the trip.

Gear up for the PGA Heritage Tournament

Thanks to its coastal setting, summer is high season on Hilton Head Island. Palmetto Dunes is at its busiest during the Memorial Day to Labor Day stretch, when legions of families descend on the resort. For golf aficionados, attending the annual PGA Heritage Tournament in April is a top priority. While it's held at the famed Harbor Town Golf Links, Palmetto Dunes still fill up fast. If you prefer deserted beaches and uncrowded links consider visiting in winter, when Palmetto Dunes feels wonderfully quiet.

A sunny slice of South Carolina

Hilton Head Island is part of South Carolina's sun drenched Lowcountry region. It's fringed by the Atlantic Ocean which means there's no shortage of sandy shoreline to enjoy.

Eternally popular with families, it features grassy picnic areas, outdoor showers, and a lively plaza lined with shops, cafes and seafood shacks. If you want to spot local wildlife, why not day trip to Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge, a salt marsh that serves as a habitat for deer, alligators, and sea birds.
