|About these ratings|
Tony yachts glitter in the marina; seafood restaurants beckon; the iconic red and white lighthouse stands tall in the not-so distance. We're describing Hilton Head's Harbour Town district, of course -- a pocket located inside the island's gated Sea Pines resort community. Here's where you'll find a smattering of gorgeous rental properties, the aforementioned scenery, good food and ambience. Vacationers say that you could easily spend a day exploring the area.
"From the docks, charter a boat, rent a Waverunner or try an adventure cruise," suggests one Virtual Tourist. "Hungry? Eateries range from ice cream shops to upscale restaurants. Various stores sell everything from postcards and T-shirts to unique gifts and artwork." Some of the best shopping opportunities include Planet Hilton Head and the Cinnamon Bear Country Store. For food, we'd recommend The Crazy Crab or The Quarterdeck. Stroll out toward the water after your meal; sunset is particularly enchanting and much of the time there's even live music.
Harbour Town rests in the bottom boot of Hilton Head Island. Visit its page on the Sea Pines Resort website for further details on visiting and activities.
