Bluffton - Hilton Head Island Relocation Information

Hilton Head Curb Appeal

South Carolina vacationers cannot get enough of Hilton Head Island’s chic beach community! Named as one of the Top 10 Family Beaches and voted by Conde Nast readers as one of the Top 10 Best U.S. Islands, it is no wonder Hilton Head Island is the ultimate beach paradise and the beaches are pet friendly. Clean, soft sands encompass the twelve mile long island and over 100 miles of bike trails intertwine the nearby boutiques and cafes. 

Experience nature at its finest as you set sail into the Atlantic Ocean and catch a glimpse of the local bottle-nosed dolphins. In the nearby Low Country of Bluffton, the salt water marshes are a natural wonder, and one of the most plant-productive ecosystems in the world. Shrimp, crabs, and oysters thrive off of the lush marsh grasses, as great blue heron swoop in from the sky. 

The historic downtown of Bluffton, known as the old town, sits along the May River and host a plethora of shows and cultural events in its notorious Ulmer Auditorium. Calhoun Street fills with visitors for its weekly Farmers Market and local art galleries display the finest of paintings and sculptures. Here you'll find Bluffton homes in the historic district or at gated Bluffton golf communities.

Tucked between Savannah and Charleston, Bluffton is considered one of the last true coastal towns in South Carolina and it is the fastest growing municipality in the region. Bluffton - Hilton Head Island is easily accessed by major highways and nearby to the Hilton Head Airport making travel to and from the area a breeze. Home sweet home lies in the pristine beaches off Hilton Head Island, and its charming town of Bluffton!

So many of us are transplants from other states. The community has deep sense of interconnectedness and has become our extended family.

Wish we had been told about the rail cars dumping gravel every Tuesday night. This should be part of a noise ordinance. Please help us.
