DVC: Hilton Head

About ten years ago I had the opportunity to stay in the Disney Vacation Club property on Hilton Head, South Carolina.  This was a region of the country that I had never had the chance to explore.   When we arrived on the property, we were able to settle into a very comfortable property that had many of the comforts that one would find at Walt Disney World.  There were four adults on this trip and we stayed in a two bedroom unit.  Just like the Disney Vacation Club resorts at Walt Disney World, there were two comfortably sized bedrooms and a living room/ kitchen area between the two rooms.  There are also two full size bathrooms.   On the property of the resort there are a number of different activities, pools and access to the ocean. 

Off the property of the resort, there are many areas worth exploring.  We had rented a car and spent time in the cities of Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia.  If you are a movie buff, the movies Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and Forest Gump both have scenes featuring various spots within the city of Savannah.  The city of Charlotte has a lot of history and charm.   If you have never gone, they are definitely worth checking out.  Both are charming southern cities with a lot to offer both residents and visitors alike.  Some other things we were able to visit included the Middleton Plantation and Beaufort where we explored the town and rode on a horse drawn carriage.   

I certainly had a lot of apprehension about going on a vacation to a new part of the country.  I would definitely say that the trip was well worth it.  It would be a perfect spot of you wanted to simply relax and enjoy the beach or if you are looking to explore the local area.
