Hilton Head boasts 24 world class golf courses and 350 tennis courts. In between matches, enjoy an easy day in the sun on one of the top 10 family beaches in the United States. If you're looking for outdoor adventure, try horseback riding through a forest preserve or biking on the beach or moss-draped trails.

Day trips from Hilton Head Island
Hilton Head is less than an hour away from Savannah, Georgia, so it's definitely worth a trip across the state line. Savannah is a picturesque southern town with its period architecture, oak-lined streets, and good old southern hospitality. There are plenty of historical sites and museums to explore as well as the supposedly haunted Bonaventure Cemetery. Or, spend the day sipping mint juleps along with fresh seafood and creamy grits! If you'd rather stay stateside, make the trip to Charleston. This historic town is also bursting with Southern charm and hospitality. Take a stroll down Waterfront park while enjoying the view of the Battery and the French Quarter or have a peaceful day at the gardens at Middleton Place.
