For most people in the United States (and across the world) the last year has been one filled to the brim with stress. The restrictions on traveling have also not allowed many to simply throw off the stress of both confinement and simply big city living. Life has changed – and for most that has meant huge adjustments. The good news is that those restrictions seem to be slowly lifting. That means it might be time to get out and enjoy the company of family and friends on that long-anticipated vacation.
Once the decision has been taken to recharge those tired mental and physical batteries the next choice is where to go? For some people staying close to home (relatively) is the best choice – and for those who really want to get away from it all into the bosom of Mother Nature, but still enjoy great amenities Hilton Head in South Carolina’s Lowcountry region is a perfect choice. It’s easy to access due to the fact that this barrier island is only 30 miles from Savannah, Georgia (and from 45 minutes from the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport) – and the natural beauty of this popular vacation spot is simply stunning, with 12 miles of Atlantic facing beach and nature trails (including some great biking options) that will have any lover of the great outdoors grinning from ear to ear.
Those who simply want to settle back with a cocktail or enjoy some fabulous cuisine will also be spoiled for choice. 250 Restaurants mean that there is something for everyone.
However, the great joys of Hilton Head are not only limited to the natural beauty or the cuisine (although sampling the many choices at the Old Oyster Factory is highly recommended) it’s also about the choice of accommodation. There really is something for everyone. It doesn’t matter the size of your party or your individual needs there’s a vacation rental option that is right for you and your party. There are home and villa rentals, as well as some fabulous resorts to choose from. There’s not only the option of enjoying your vacation on your own terms at a seaside cottage or luxury villa – you can also be pampered in five-star luxury. The Marriott Hilton Head Resort and Spa, or the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort and Spa are popular choices for those who want that full-service option.
For those who want to combine some sporting activities with the enjoyment of the fabulous natural attractions of Hilton Head, there are numerous opportunities to enjoy either tennis or golf. Golfers especially will be spoiled for choice – there are 24 courses available for those who want to tee-off in a place that boasts exceptional natural beauty (Harbour Town Golf Links is recognized as one of the premier courses in the country).
When all is said and done Hilton Head is one of the most sought-after vacation destinations in the U.S. for very good reason. If you need to recharge or destress then this is a destination that will meet your every need.
