Vacationing in South Carolina's Hilton Head

by: Jennifer Bailey
Families have flocked to Hilton Head, South Carolina as long as there have been people on the eastern seaboard. Early Native Americans of the area wintered among the yellow pines and palmettos of this barrier island, enjoying the mild climate as they feasted on the plentiful seafood. Later, as the new colonies were settled, Spanish, French, and English explorers and entrepreneurs spent time among the high bluffs and beaches of this 12-mile long island. Visionaries later saw the unique beauty of this island and have protected its wildlife and marshes, enabling visitors to enjoy clean beaches, lush forests, and clean air.

Now, the abundance and variety of vacation rentals available in Hilton Head allows visitors to enjoy the sun and cool ocean air in comfort. This natural vacation wonderland, once home to sugar, rice, and indigo plantations, offers a full range of outdoor activities, from tennis and tournament golf to hiking in the nature preserves and walking along the beach. Rentals in Hilton Head allow vacationers to stay in a resort hotel, condominium, villa, or private home in comfort, while enjoying the balmy 65˚ F weather all year long. Visitors can shop, dine in fine restaurants, or enjoy the scenery when they tire of the multitude of outdoor activities.

Vacation rentals, both privately owned and commercial resort properties, are available all year and fit a wide variety of budgets. The original plantations scattered over the island have been turned into resorts offering the latest amenities. There are beach-front properties available as well as rentals in the interior of the island that are close to the nearly 30 golf courses, 300 tennis courts, and hiking and in-line skating trails in the parks. Most facilities are open year-round, and offer bargains during the off-season. With over 10,000 hotel rooms, 6,000 rental houses and fourteen resort plantations to choose from, every vacationer should be able to fine just the "right" rental on Hilton Head Island.
