Hilton Head Island is a town located on an island of the same name in Beaufort County, South Carolina. Hilton Head Island is 45 miles (72 km) north of Savannah, Georgia, and 95 miles (152 km) south of Charleston, South Carolina. The island features 12 miles of beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean and is a popular vacation destination.

The island is served by the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport and by the Hilton Head Airport which is on-island. Hilton Head Island is famous for its world class golf courses and each year hosts the Verizon Heritage Classic Tournament, which is played on the Harbour Town Golf Links in Sea Pines Plantation.

Though known mainly as a tourist destination, Hilton Head is home to many 'native islanders', made up of African American communities that have lived on the island for generations and other groups who have migrated from northern states.

The beginning of Hilton Head as a resort started in 1956 with Charles Fraser developing Sea Pines Plantation, with the centerpiece being Harbour Town.

Many of the island's earliest residents, sometimes called Geechees, spoke Gullah. Although threatened by the rapid increase in tourism Gullah culture can be seen at the annual Gullah festival, tours offered by native islanders and at craft shops around the Low Country.
