A true slice of South Carolina Lowcountry heaven for people who love to play outside in year-round mild weather, this barrier island just 12 miles long and five miles wide is home to 24 world-class golf courses (and 350 tennis courts). It's also home to a strand of spectacular beaches--Hilton Head Island Beach was the state's most Instagrammed place in 2016--and preserved land that serves as habitat for rare and endangered species. That playground vibe complements the town's sophisticated food and culture scene, making for a perfect cocktail of graceful, Southern living.
