Cruise the Lowcountry in style! Come explore Hilton Head and the surrounding areas in a Polaris Slingshot. These exotic cars are open, unencumbered by windows, doors, or a roof. Experience the freedom of the open road while taking in all the beautiful scenery the Lowcountry has to offer! The Slingshot is a unique roadster that connects driver and passenger to the sights, sounds, and smells of the scenic Lowcountry area. From first ignition, the only thing you’ll want is more. Every push of the pedal strips away the elements that restrict you from enjoyment, excitement, and freedom. The only thing you’ll need to worry about is how far the road will take you.
From the helicopter you get a unique perspective and a whole new feel for the Lowcountry. You’ll see miles of beaches and meandering creeks teeming with wildlife. Fly over the beautiful Harbour Town Marina and even the Lighthouse! Take in a multitude of islands and even see a Civil War Fort. This is great fun for all ages from infants to seniors.
