Stuff To Do
Hilton Head Island
Hilton Head Island is the largest barrier island (42 square miles) off the Atlantic coast between Long Island and the Bahamas. Hilton Head is located on the Intracoastal Waterway, 40 miles north of Savannah, GA, and 90 miles south of Charleston, SC. Hilton Head island is a popular vacation resort, to over 2 million visitors per year. With 12 miles of broad Atlantic beaches, water sports, world-class golfing and dining, there's something for the entire family.
The nation's largest registered Urban Historic Landmark District, Savannah's 21 green squares and 1,600-plus historically and architecturally significant structures are all within a 2.5 square mile area. Culture flourishes in Savannah, home of one of the largest art schools in the country. The faculty, students and graduates of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) exhibit in numerous galleries city-wide, energizing the local art scene. Artists invite you into their studios in the old City Market. Theater, film and music scenes are also vibrant. Savannah is becoming as famous for its food as for its historic sights. Fresh local seafood, Southern home cooking and nationally known chefs are the ingredients of a cuisine scene that's cookin', in more ways than one. With more than 150 festivals every year, Savannah is all about celebration. Music, art, culture and food are just a few of our excuses for city-wide parties. See the sights by bicycle, carriage, trolley, bus or boat! Architecture, history, fiction, wildlife, heritage and ghosts are ready to be explored in our touring city. And only 20 minutes from Savannah's Historic District, fun and funky Tybee Island offers sand, sea and history, plus great food and rustic accommodations. Tybee also hosts a wildlife refuge, and is home to dozens of notable varieties of birds, turtles and other precious species.
