A Hilton Head vacation may be heaven for a golfer, but the area also offers all kinds of other options for sports fans.
Fort Pulaski National Monument and Tybee Island Lighthouse Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step off the beaten path and head to Folly Field Beach Park and Hilton Head Distillery. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Islanders Beach Park, explore and take pictures at Mitchelville Freedom Park, putt your heart out at Legendary Golf, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Francis by the Sea Catholic Church.
