Destination: Hilton Head Island

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina is a town that feels like it was built solely for tourists and golfers. Golf resorts that cater to both own most of the prime real estate, so tourists who golf are in for an extra-special treat. During the warm months (which are 10-11 out of the year), bicycles are almost as common as cars in this oceanside community.

But don't expect the flashing glow neon of Myrtle Beach; Hilton Head is for the traveler who wants to relax and spend time on the wide, white sandy beaches. Day cruises are also popular, whether chartering a boat to fish or hopping aboard one of the many dolphin cruises.

Feel like shopping? Hilton Head offers several destinations, such as the popular Coligny Plaza – sometimes referred to as "downtown" Hilton Head – and the nearby Tanger Outlet in Bluffton, which boasts more than 85 brand-name stores, such as Gap, Banana Republic and Nike.

Food is almost as celebrated on Hilton Head as golf. Popular restaurants feature a range of four-star selections, from seafood (naturally) to Thai to Gullah (the local native islander culture) to four-star dining. Celebrity chef Robert Irvine, of Food Network fame, owns a restaurant called Eat!, or try more relaxed fare at popular lunch destination, Signe's Heavenbound Bakery. After dinner, for entertainment, head over to the Jazz Corner for live music or catch a show at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina.

And, oh yes, there's golf. Seemingly, all of the big architects have golf courses in Hilton Head: Arthur Hills and George Fazio at the Palmetto Dunes resort, Hills and Robert Cupp at Palmetto Hills, Gary Player at Hilton Head National Golf Club and, of course, Pete Dye's Harbour Town Golf Links is always a must-play.
