`The official welcome center for Hilton Head Island is in the Chamber of Commerce at 1 Chamber Dr. Here, you’ll find all the usual listings of accommodations, businesses and events. The Chamber of Commerce’s website, www.hiltonheadisland.org, also provides a thorough overview of what the island has to offer, including suggested activities for specific types of vacations (family trip, romantic getaway, etc.) as well as information on nearby islands. If you are still in the process of planning your trip, check out their list of reservation companies to save yourself some time.

There is also the Island Visitor Center at 71 Pope Ave Suite B, which can help with everything from making restaurant reservations to buying real estate. Check here for promotions and discounts from local businesses, which often post the deals they are offering with the Visitor Center. These coupons can be found online at www.hhivisitorcenter.com.

Hilton Head Island even has a hospitality association (located at 21 Office Park Rd, Suite 106-A) whose members are mainly local business owners. There is information about annual festivals and island services on the association’s website, www.hiltonheadhospitalityassociation.com.

If you plan to venture beyond Hilton Head to some of the surrounding towns, stop by the Frampton House in Yemassee, just off I-95 at Exit 33. It is home to the Lowcountry Visitor’s Center and Museum, where you can find information about the Hilton Head region as a whole.
