A Hilton Head vacation may be heaven for a golfer, but the area also offers all kinds of other options for sports fans.
On the 5th (Mon), see the interesting displays at Coastal Discovery Museum, then fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and then race across the water with a speed boat tour. On the 6th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: cast your line with a fishing tour, then get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and then putt your heart out at Legendary Golf.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Hilton Head using our trip planner.

Savannah to Hilton Head is an approximately 1-hour car ride. You can also take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in August, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Charleston.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: admire the sheer force of Laurel Falls, cool off at Outdoor Gravity Park, and then whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.
