I haven’t ever met a person from Ohio I didn’t like. They are usually so happy to be on Hilton Head Island away from the cold in the winter and enjoying our 14 miles of beautiful beaches in the summer. Have you wondered why Hilton Head Island is filled with so many property owners from Ohio? And how did they get here?
1. They were invited. Hilton Head Islands Charles Fraser had Sea Pines marketing team come up with a strategy to target landlocked states like Ohio as the best family vacation place to visit. They wanted people to come on vacation to see what a beautiful island we have and ultimately buy real estate.
2. It is easy to get to Hilton Head Island. From Ohio, it is a straight 10-12 hour drive down I-77. If you don’t want to drive, flying is easy too. There are numerous direct flights to both Savannah, a short 45-minute drive, and the local Hilton Head airport.
3. Hilton Head became Ohio’s home away from home. With 14 miles of pristine beaches, miles of bike trails and never a lack of activities, Ohio families return year after year and I am glad they do. I have been fortunate to meet and sell many vacation properties on Hilton Head to families from Ohio. I always enjoy working with them and especially how they love the island as much as I do.
Last year my husband and I had the opportunity to visit and attend a Buckeye Football game with some clients. What fun and I will never forget the Horseshoe.
