Hilton Head Island is a town located on an island of the same name in Beaufort County, South Carolina, United States. The population was 33,862 at the 2000 census, living on a land area of 108.94 km (42.06 sq mi). Although the town occupies most of the land area of the island, it is not coterminous with it; there is a small part near the main access road from the mainland, William Hilton Parkway, which is not incorporated into the town. Hilton Head (the island) therefore has a slightly higher population (34,407 in Census 2000, defined as the Hilton Head Island Urban Cluster) and a larger land area (110.45 km or 42.65 sq mi) than the town. [1] Hilton Head Island is 45 miles (72 km) north of Savannah, Georgia, and 95 miles (152 km) south of Charleston, South Carolina. The island features 12 miles of beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean and is a popular vacation destination.

The island is served by the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport and by the Hilton Head Airport which is on-island. Hilton Head Island is famous for its world class golf courses and each year hosts the Verizon Heritage Classic Tournament, which is played on the Harbour Town Golf Links in Sea Pines Plantation.

Though known mainly as a tourist destination, Hilton Head has developed a rapidly growing full-time population, made up mostly of affluent transplants from Ohio, New Jersey, and other northern states. It is classified by the U.S. Census Bureau as part of the Hilton Head Island-Beaufort Micropolitan Area, which includes Beafort and Jasper Counties and had a 2005 estimated population of 159,247.

History
 
Hilton Head has several places of historical interest. There is evidence of the island being inhabited seasonably by Native Americans as early as 10,000 years ago. The Shell Ring inside the Sea Pines Forest Preserve is all that remains from their inhabitance. There is a large earthworks fort called Fort Walker in Port Royal Plantation. This fort was a station for Confederate troops until 1861 and participated in Battle of Port Royal At the time this was the largest amphibious landing by U.S. troops.

Port Royal also is the location of an experimental steam cannon guarding Port Royal Sound built around 1900. The cannon was fixed but its propulsion system allowed for long range shots for the time.

The Leamington Lighthouse which was built in the 1870s on the southern edge of what is now Palmetto Dunes.

The first bridge to the island was built in 1956; it was a two lane toll bridge. Later a swing bridge was constructed and operated until 1982 when it was replaced. The swing bridge was hit by a barge in 1974 which shutdown all vehicle traffic to the island until the Army Corps of Engineers built and manned a pontoon bridge while the bridge was being repaired.

The beginning of Hilton Head as a resort started in 1956 with Charles Fraser developing Sea Pines Plantation, with the center piece being Harbour Town.

Many of the island's early residents commonly called Geechees spoke Gullah.
