Hilton Head Island is primarily known as one of America's most popular leisure and retirement destinations; however, its convenient location, easy travel access, low taxes and recreational opportunities/quality of life also make Hilton Head Island an excellent location to locate a business.
The Town of Hilton Head Island is a resort town of 54 square miles, located in Beaufort County, South Carolina. The Town was officially incorporated in 1983, but the island has a rich history tracing back thousands of years. The island is named after Captain William Hilton.
The Town is a thriving, eco-friendly, micropolitan area with a population of approximately 40,000 residents. It welcomes an estimated 2.6 million visitors annually to enjoy its 13 miles of beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean and other outdoor activities.
