Moving to HHI


When you make the decision to move to Hilton Head Island you are making the decision to live your life on Island time. A dream come true for many, life on Hilton Head Island is at a decidedly slower pace. Life is meant to be savored here, and the salty air and ocean breezes offer a serenity not found in many places. Quite simply, it’s paradise.

Of course, paradise and reality must co-exist, and Hilton Head Island makes that combination a reality. With an abundance of outstanding medical facilities, excellent public and private schools, ample shops to meet all your daily needs, nearly unlimited opportunities for outdoor and indoor recreation, and much more, many folks find they rarely need to leave the Island. When you do need or want to leave, Hilton Head even has its own commercial airport. What more could you ask for?

Here are some essential links to help guide you as you settle into your new life on Hilton Head Island. For more information on specific topics, including utilities, places of worship, healthcare and more, check out those individual pages of our Relocation Guide.
