The best way to see Hilton Head Island in one day is through a guided trolley tour. You will learn about the history of the island that began when Captain William Hilton landed here in 1663. Hit up all the must-see historic sites along with the beaches, marshland, shopping, and dining spots you will want to explore post-tour. Another great option is to take a boat tour. Hilton Head Island is famous for its beaches, marshland, and aquatic wildlife and a boat tour is a great way to soak in the coastal setting and see the island from the outside. You can also opt for an up-close experience by renting bicycles and taking advantage of the 35 miles of bike trails winding throughout Hilton Head Island— it’s an easy way for a self-guided tour of the gorgeous Lowcountry surroundings.
