A trip to South Carolina isn't complete without a visit to Hilton Head. The outdoor activities, cultural attractions, and historical sites are sure to delight any visitor.
There are many things to see and do in this town, regardless of your interests or passions. The Penn Center has one of the largest collections of African-American cultural artifacts in the country. The building dates back to the Civil War, and it covers more than 50 acres. Some might prefer the Pirates of Hilton Head, which is a replica pirate ship that sits right on the water. You can see all of these attractions and many more when you book your trip through Orbitz.com.
There is almost never a bad time to visit Hilton Head because the city experiences warm and mild temperatures year round. Winter temperatures can reach more than 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and the temperature rarely drops below 40 degrees. The warmer summer temperatures and hours of sunshine bring more travelers to the city. With summertime temperatures ranging from the low 70s to 90 degrees, you can visit the golf course, go hiking, or spend time at the beach nearly every day. More travelers visit in the warmer months, but you can still experience great weather and get cheaper prices by booking a trip to Hilton Head during the off-season with Orbitz.com.
