6 Reasons Hilton Head is the Perfect Family Vacation Destination

It’s a well-known fact that Hilton Head Island is an incredible vacation destination. In fact, around 2.5 million people visit this gorgeous and entertaining place each year. The views are stunning, the attractions are exciting, and the food is delicious. 

Yes, it’s pretty clear that a vacation in Hilton Head is a good choice for adults, but many people wonder if Hilton Head is a good place to vacation with kids. The answer? Absolutely! Hilton Head is most definitely a family-friendly vacation destination. 

This island is fun for all ages, and that includes even the youngest kids and the most senior of seniors. Because of this, Hilton Head is an awesome place for your annual family vacation, or even a family reunion.

Don’t just take our word for it though; read on to learn precisely why we think this lovely beach town is such a fantastic vacation option for families with kids. 

Pristine Beaches

Hilton Head Island is well known for its incredible beaches. These gorgeous, sandy recreation areas are an absolute paradise. They provide a wonderful place to sunbathe, walk, or simply relax in the sand. They can also become an ideal play area for children. 

We’ve yet to meet a single kid who didn’t like playing at the beach. Splashing and swimming in the ocean waves can provide hours of entertainment, and building sand castles, collecting shells, and digging are all activities that most kids are pretty quick to get excited about.

Hilton Head beaches are some of the best places to enjoy these classic beach activities, because they provide a clean, beautiful, and family-friendly environment that we can all feel comfortable spending time in. 

Family-Friendly Recreation

Those pretty beaches and their surrounding areas also provide some great opportunities for recreation. Sure, the area is famous for its golf courses, but golfing isn’t exactly fun for the vast majority of kids out there. Fortunately, it is also far from the only recreation available. In fact, there are numerous awesome options for families. 

One of our favorite beach recreation activities is renting a bike and going for a ride. Bike rentals are readily available all over the island. However, we’ve made it even easier by offering bike rental delivery to the campground. Therefore, if you’re staying in our resort, you will have no trouble at all securing bicycles for your recreational needs. 

Other wonderful family recreation options found on the island include mini golf, skating, horseback riding, ziplining, bowling, sailing and so much more.

Of course, those staying at Hilton Head Island MotorcoachResort will also have access to the pool, tennis courts, pickleball courts, and other recreational amenities offered by the park. 

Educational Exploration

We always like to sneak a little bit of learning into our family getaways. Seeing new places and meeting new people is the perfect opportunity for learning, and Hilton Head is an especially great place to find some quality educational activities and attractions, especially if you’re traveling with kids. 

Some of our favorite educational options for fun in the area are centered around nature and history. This is because the area has such an amazing ecosystem, as well as an intriguing past.

That said, there are plenty of other educational opportunities too. There are local galleries and museums to explore as well as nature based adventures to enjoy. 

Entertainment for All Ages

We feel that no vacation is truly complete without some quality entertainment. Fortunately, Hilton head delivers on this front.

Not only is there plenty of entertainment available, there are also several choices that are appropriate and fun for all ages. Whether you’re looking for a concert, a magic act, or something else entirely, you can find it on Hilton Head Island. 

Surrounding Cities

Another great thing about Hilton Head Island is the fact that it is a fun and exciting place surrounded by even more exciting and fun places. This means that if you somehow manage to run out of things for your family to see and do on Hilton Head Island, you don’t have to drive far to find even more family-friendly attractions and entertainment.

The two best cities to visit near Hilton Head Island are: ● Savannah, GA — At just an hour away, Savannah makes an awesome day-trip destination. Here you’ll find plenty of charm, especially in the adorable Historic District. ● Charleston, SC — Charleston is a bit further away. However, even the two-hour drive to this city isn’t too bad, and you’ll be rewarded with historical sites, yummy food, and fun attractions.

Relaxation and Connection

All of this fun and excitement is great, of course. However, it tends to overshadow the final wonderful thing about visiting Hilton Head as a family: Our island is the ideal place to relax and unwind. 

If you have kids, you know how stressful raising a family can get. Vacation is your time to push “pause” on the hustle-and-bustle of everyday life and truly connect with the people you love most. Hilton Head allows you to do just that, and we highly recommend taking full advantage of it while you’re here.
