Other popular Hilton Head activities include fishing and crabbing, kayaking, horseback riding and paddleboarding, all of which take advantage of the area’s wonderful climate. Hilton Head also offers many world-class fine-dining restaurants, cultural tours and experiences, and sightseeing opportunities.
Scenic Surroundings and a Focus on Environment
From its wide sandy beaches to its coastal wetlands, the Hilton Head area is awash in natural beauty. This focus on natural beauty extends to the island’s architectural design aesthetic; there is not a single neon sign on Hilton Head Island. Instead, natural colors and themes are the defining characteristics of building design and signage. With 12 miles of beaches and numerous marinas, it’s easy to dip your toes, or your boat, into the Atlantic Ocean. The region also has some of the clearest and healthiest air in the country, further confirming its reputation as a natural wonder.
Accessible Health Care
The Hilton Head area is home to several state-of-the-art hospitals and medical facilities, including the full-service Hilton Head Hospital located on the eastern end of the island. The Hilton Head Regional Healthcare system provides comprehensive services throughout the area, with several hospitals and providers to choose from. You will be able to rest easy knowing that your health care needs can be addressed by some of the finest medical professionals in the nation.
Stable Economy and Low Crime Rate
Long a center of culture and tourism, Hilton Head enjoys a very vibrant and stable economy, and an overall crime rate that is 42 percent lower than national averages. The island is very walkable and well-lit, and provides wonderful access to the area’s dynamic nightlife. The area’s economy is powered by the engine of a dynamic coastal area that stretches from Wilmington, N.C. to Savannah, Georgia.
South Carolina residents enjoy very favorable tax benefits, including the absence of a state estate/inheritance taxes, always an important consideration when it comes to retirement. Additionally, there is no state income tax on Social Security earnings, and there are numerous tax breaks available for pension income.
