Hilton Head Island is one of the most beautiful places on this earth. Last summer I was able to visit and have been in love ever since. For starters, its an Island… which is awesome. Completely surrounded by water with amazing beaches. Second, as you can tell from the picture below, it is shaped liked a foot. From a design aspect, that is really cool.
To better explain its Genius loci, I am going to point out some of the islands amazing features. The landmark for Hilton Head is the lighthouse, when at the top you can see the entire island. Not only is the design of this island beautiful, but the weather is such a great complement to it. Consistently 65-90 degrees year round, with 65 tending to be the low in the winter and 90 or a little above being the high in the summer. When you are there, you sense so much peace, the people are happy, things are more alive than anywhere else, and you feel a sense of belonging when you are there. Hilton head is a very special place and I plan to go back very soon!
