Hilton Head, South Carolina

No. 1: Hilton Head, South Carolina
Score: 88.35

Even as the secret about Hilton Head gets out, repeat visitors say it hasn’t lost any charm. Pristine golf courses and local wildlife (including loggerhead turtles, dolphins, and cormorants) have made it as popular for honeymoons as it is for family reunions. Other reasons to love Hilton Head? Quiet beaches, yachts bobbing offshore, and the view from Harbour Town Lighthouse. After a 114-step ascent, you’ll be rewarded with a 360-degree panorama of marshes and fairways. “Look forward to crossing the bridge to the island,” wrote T+L reader. “You know you are arriving at a very special place.”
