Stan Smith

American tennis pro Stan Smith has called Hilton Head Island home for nearly 50 years. Enjoy this great conversation that Bill Miles had with his good friend Stan about why he loves living here on HHI.

Sea Turtles in the Lowcountry

Every year, hundreds of loggerhead sea turtles build nests to lay eggs on our beaches. On average, these sea turtles lay 120 eggs in a nest two to eight times during a nesting season. The thousands of hatchlings that are born then attempt the trek from the beach to their ocean home.
