Head island, located in South Carolina just north of Savannah, Ga.
is a world famous vacation destination for families who enjoy the
beach and for golfers and tennis players. Hilton Head has 14
miles of beautiful beaches, two dozen golf courses (on the island or
nearby), hundreds of tennis courts, and about 200 restaurants.
Hilton Head is a favorite of nature lovers as well. Hilton Head's
climate is semi-tropical and dress is very informal.
Hilton Head Island
was originally occupied by various Native America tribes. The first
Europeans to arrive were the Spanish, in 1521. The Spanish
mistreated the local Indians and were eventually driven off by them.
In 1663 an
Englishman, captain William Hilton, arrived looking for a place to
plant sugar cane and indigo and claimed the island for the British
crown. Hilton Head soon thrived as landowners established
plantations of these crops and cotton.
