Hilton Head Island Pop Culture

Seeing as Hilton Head is a small place where people mainly come to relax and play golf, you won't find any big references in pop culture here. It's not like you can go there to see, but parts of "Full Metal Jacket" were filmed at nearby Parris Island and "The Longest Yard" was filmed here in 1974. Swampy Daufuskie Island was also made famous by Pat Conroy in his autobiographical book "The Water is Wide," in which he called it "Yamacraw Island." And you won't find any famous singers or bands from Hilton Head, but a number of celebrities have been known to vacation here.
