(4.4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)

Take in Hilton Head from above at the observation decks. If you like to fish, drive Fish Island trail to the center of the preserve, where you'll find man-made lakes. Learn more about the preserve with the help of a guide on a bicycle or with a bird-watching tour. A vacation package that includes lodging and activities at a discount is available on the website.
