Another notable thing is that Hilton Head Island is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends.

During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
One of the nice things about Hilton Head Island is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays.
