HotelTonight – Hilton Head Island Hotels Are Available
I've been working as a magazine writer for a couple of decades now, and that means that I get to travel a lot to places I never would have seen otherwise. That's one of the parts of this job that I've always loved, as you never know what you're going to experience when you arrive somewhere new. For the most part, those experiences have been quite positive. Unfortunately, when I am in these places, I'm constantly reminded that I'm there for work. That means that there is rarely any time for me to take a look around and enjoy myself, as I'm always chasing an interview or documents or something that has to be done before my deadline. I've made mental notes to come back to a lot of places, and someday I hope to start knocking off that list. One entry on the list was Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. I had to go back there for a story recently, but on the way there I found out that my interview subject had unexpectedly left town. That left me 24 hours to myself. I decided to stay, knowing my HotelTonight app would find me a Hilton Head Island hotel room, as soon as I needed one.
Since Hilton Head Island is an island off the mainland of South Carolina, there is a lot of beach land there. I love beaches for a lot of different reasons, not the least of which is that I find them unique. A beach in South Carolina is going to look a lot different than a beach in California. The beach in Hilton Head Island featured very warm water, reeds growing out of the sand and dunes that add an entire tapestry to the area. I walked around for a couple of hours, enjoying the scenery.
Hilton Head Island is known as a resort area, and golf and tennis are enormous draws there. That's great for the people who enjoy those activities, and I certainly do from time to time. There is also a lot of wildlife in the area, and I explored a preserve nearby that was nothing short of amazing. I saw everything from deer to alligators to different types of bird life that I had never seen before. I spent several hours there taking photos and taking it all in.
I wanted something local for dinner, which basically meant that I was having seafood. That was great news, as I adore seafood and heard about a place that does it right. I walked in and thought that I had stepped into a beautiful time warp. I ordered the snapper, and it was so flaky, so flavorful and so filling that I could not believe it was the same species that I buy in the grocery store from time to time. I sat and ate and looked out over the reeds at the edge of the island, sipping wine and falling into deep thought.
