This year's perfect vacation could well mean that you want to search Hilton Head summer rentals. The boot-shaped island off South Carolina's southern coast has been extolled for far longer than the 50 years it has been a world-renowned U.S. resort. You're not restricted to visiting in the summer, of course. Hilton Head's semi-tropical climate means pleasant temperatures all year. Winter means 70° rather than 90° Fahrenheit.

Enjoying Hilton Head Summer Rentals

Visitors to Hilton Head seem to keep returning, year in and year out. The most obvious reason is the island's 12 miles of wide sandy Atlantic beaches. That, however, is only the beginning. The beaches roll up to sand dunes dotted with sea grass. Hilton Head summer rentals could mean leisurely walks along the beaches. It might mean sailboat cruises from one of Hilton Head's inland marinas.

Then, too, perhaps you might enjoy the challenge of the 24 championship golf courses. Their 4,000 acres of lush fairways weave in and out amidst lagoons, freshwater wetlands, and salt water marshes. Many Hilton Head summer rentals offer views across them. Four of these courses are listed among America's top 100. Designed by architects such as Tom Fazio, Arnold Palmer, Trent Jones, and Jack Nicklaus, any of them will demand your finest swing and most careful course management.

The varied wildlife habitats are delight to any naturalist. Its dense maritime woodlands, grasslands, and salt estuaries are home to alligator, beaver, countless species of bird and butterfly, and loggerhead turtles, to name a few. You'll see many of these as you hike or bike the many trails that crisscross the island.
