Hilton Head's Infamous Traffic Circles
First time visitors to Hilton Head Island are often intimidated by the traffic circles or roundabouts because they are uncommon in the United States. Overall, roundabouts are statistically safer than traditional intersections. The two circles you will encounter on Hilton Head Island are Sea Pines circle and Coligny circle.
A few things to know about either circle: thru traffic moves in the left lane, turning traffic in the right lane. In either circle, if you enter from the right lane of the approach road you will be forced to exit at the first exit, so as you enter the circle get into the left lane until your exit. If you get confused about where to exit, do what I do, just go around again and find the right exit.
Not to worry, the traffic circles in Hilton Head Island are well marked with overhead signs. If you want challenging try a traffic circle in Bermuda. Not only is the mode of transportation a moped but they drive on the left side of the road, that's a story for another time!
Arriving by Train
To travel by train, take Amtrak to Savannah, which is on the Silver Service/Palmetto line. The station has a partnership with Hertz, so make car arrangements in advance and Hertz will arrange to transport you from the station to their airport rental location.
Arriving by Boat
The island is accessible by water, as it is on the easy-to-navigate Intracoastal Waterway. However, reservations for a place to dock should be made well in advance, as marinas on the island have limited space for private boats. Not all marinas accommodate transient boaters and those that do are booked up well in advance.
