Beaufort Co. Town Named "Best Beach Town in America"

Posted: Updated:
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -

Its summer and Hilton Head's beaches are filled with families splashing in the surf or sunbathing in the sand.

"It seems like its supposed to be a family destination, the people are very kind, and nice you know, they're not obnoxious people," said Tim Walsh.

"You can like play in the sand and ocean while your mom and dad are up there doing whatever they want... Relaxing," said his daughter, Madalyn.

Reasons like this helped make Hilton Head the "Best Beach Town in America" according to 'Parents' magazine.

The publication lists the island's 12-miles of sandy beach as well as family-friendly restaurants as some highlights, and local officials are thrilled with this designation.

"People are inundated with travel information, absolutely inundated with a million different resources to choose from, so when something like Parents magazine says we are the number one beach town in America,or Condinats Traveler says we are one of the top islands, which they have, it kind of shortcuts things for people, its somebody else saying that's a great place you need to check it out, and a lot of families actually follow suit and do that," said Charlie Clark of the HHI-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.

For the Kindall family--who travel from Connecticut-- its a safe place for their children.

"We never worry about anything when we come to Hilton Head, and the beach in particular, we never worry about anything like that," said dad, Paul.

And they urge everyone to experience this piece of paradise for themselves.

"Come here! Definitely come here... There's free parking, its easy to get to the beach, there's always space for everyone on the beach, its not crowded, lots of fun huh?!"
