Hilton Head some of the most amazing architecture of any US city. There are many things to do throughout the city; we outlined a few of our favorites and we hope they’ll be yours too.
Hilton Head Bike Trails
I think we can safely say that Hilton Head Island is one of the best places on the planet to go biking. The island 60 miles of trails through shaded, paved pathways through peaceful nature that anyone with a bike can appreciate – be you an experienced avid cyclist, amateur, or beginner. Many of these trails are flat and concrete, so visitors young and old can safely ride. More rigorous trails are available to those who are up for a bit more of a challenge. On or off the trail the entire island is very bike accessible. Almost everywhere you go you’ll see a bike lane or other bike-friendly path. When you want to relax after a long afternoon of cycling, you can bike on down to one of its fine beaches. And when you get hungry, you can bike to a good restaurant. Anywhere else you may want to go on the island, you can bike there!

Coligny Beach Park is very popular amongst tourists and South Carolinians alike. Once you get there, you’ll see why. The beach is very large, clean and beautiful. Ideal for a nice stroll, relaxing, and picnicking. There are nice amenities like the clean bathrooms, outdoor showers, and gazebo-like shelters. There are also paths with copper artwork and a boardwalk. Relax on one of the swing benches with a view of the ocean. Large sprinkler fountains. There is Wi-Fi on the beach should you need it, and it is close by to a few hotels and a shopping center.

Shelter Cove Marina
Shelter Cove Marina is a great place to kick back and relax. It is the largest and best marina on the island. It features a harbor and waterfront, perfect for an evening walk. There are many boats and yachts on display, as well as some you can rent yourself. There is no shortage of shops and restaurants (both fine dining and casual) in what they call a “Mediterranean-style” village. If you come here in the summer, don’t miss HarbourFest, a fun celebration with live music, family and kids’ entertainment, and a firework show on Tuesday nights.
