Hilton Head, South Carolina
Laid-back, classically coastal Hilton Head lies 20 miles north of Savannah, Georgia (and its party-till-you-turn-green St. Patrick's Day festivities), with plenty of golf courses, lighthouses, bike trails and the royal blue Atlantic Ocean. By spring, says Kayak.com spokesperson Kevin Turner, not only is the water warming up but the beach crowds are at a minimum (high season is summer), meaning can't-miss deals on rooms and condos.
