HILTON HEAD SOUTH CAROLINA AREA 2018
VACATION RENTAL PERFORMANCE REPORT
Hilton Head named South’s best beach
Another summer, another honor: Southern Living magazine recently named Hilton Head Island the South’s Best Beach for 2018, earning praise for its flat, wide Atlantic beaches and waterways that readers said are perfect for paddling. And access to world-class golf at resorts like Sea Pines and Palmetto Dunes didn’t hurt, either.
COMPLETION OF LONGER RUNWAY TO DRAW MORE REGIONAL JETS
Air travel to the Lowcountry is changing: Larger, sleeker, commercial airliners soon will start landing on the newly expanded runway at Hilton Head Island Airport. Now that the project is completed, regional jetliners will start arriving July 5. The larger Embraer 175 jet will replace the familiar sight of the American Airlines Dash 8 Turboprop descending from the island’s blue skies in approach to the airport. The more modern Embraer 175 has 76 seats and is configured for first class and coach. Depending on the model, the Dash 8 carries up to 48 passengers.
