Hilton Head Island is a favorite vacation destination for all ages.  Golf courses are found throughout the island, several of which are top rated in the region.  There are plenty of opportunities for tennis players and the island's unique sand beach not only offers great swimming but is a wonderful place to ride bikes, run and hike.  There is a nature preserve on the island within Sea Pines and several other parks allowing one to see various species of birds and alligators. The paved bike trails are a favorite feature, connecting all points of the island with a series of paths, tracked by user signs at key locations.

The choice of restaurants is endless with excellent and varied food offerings.  Shopping boutique and art gallerys can be found throughout the island, and furniture consignment stores are exceptional. The performing arts scene is top notch, from musicals and plays to orchestral and choral to an indie film theater in Coligny.
