This little Island is hopping!  You can expect a little extra traffic, and lots of extra pedestrians and cyclists on and around the bike paths for the next few months, so please use caution, both the drivers and the walkers!

That being said, Hilton Head welcomes our Island guests with grace and dignity.  We have bike ambassaors at some tricky intersections, we have lovely visitors and famies staying here who also LOVE this Island, and have a great deal of respect for it.  Frequently we get asked about what it is like to live on Hilton Head during tourist season, and we generally all agree that Southern Hospitality prevails.  During the prime season and out of season, living, working and playing on Hilton Head is equally pleasant all year round.  In the Summer, you may just have to give yourself a few extra minutes to get around the Sea Pines Circle!
We have been urging folks lately to buy now.  This is not just a 'QVC' sales pitch, all things align right now to indicate that buying now and retiring later is one of the best things you can do if your retirement plans include Hilton Head Island.  
Find out what is possible; you may be surprised after talking to a mortgage professional, that you can buy that villa in Sea Pines!  It makes sense on so many levels.
