Because of the pleasant conditions at Hilton Head in spring, many of the island's most popular events and festivals are held during this time. Spring visitors are treated to everything from live music performances, to sporting events, and classy food and beverage festivals.
Perhaps the most recognized event at Hilton Head during spring is the RBC Heritage PGA tournament which takes place in mid-April. Each year over 100,000 spectators visit to watch the pros take on the beautiful yet challenging Harbour Town Golf Links course at Sea Pines Resort. The RBC Heritage is great fun to watch, especially when you book a vacation rental close to the action.
