4 of the Best Things to Do for Spring Break on Hilton Head
"You can cut all the flowers, but you cannot keep spring from coming." —Pablo Neruda
1. Spend Time With Your Kids
Between school, work, soccer games, piano lessons, and everything in between, it can feel challenging to find time for bonding with your children. Take advantage of spring break by prioritizing your relationships with the kids. Create lasting memories, take incredible photos, and enjoy quality time with your loved ones.
Sandbox Children’s Museum: For an interactive, hands-on learning experience, take your kids to Sandbox Children’s Museum! It’s the perfect place to let their imaginations soar. Get creative, play, learn, and have a blast.
Horseback Riding at Lawton Stables: Do something a little different this spring break and opt for horseback riding! Lawton Stables offers Western-style trail rides through the 605-acre Sea Pines Forest Preserve. They also have a petting zoo.
Dolphin Tours: Watch your kids’ faces light up as dolphins breach the surface of the ocean. There’s truly nothing more magical. Share this experience with your kids, and you’ll have a memory that will last a lifetime.
Adventure Cove Mini Golf: Leave your phones behind and get engaged. A rousing round of mini-golf is sure to include lots of laughs, some holes-in-one, and a great deal of fun for the whole family.
The Coastal Discovery Museum: You and the kids will have so much fun learning about the Lowcountry’s diverse ecosystems at The Coastal Discovery Museum! You might even get the chance to see some local species of animals up close.
2. Be Adventurous
With the weather well on its way to warmer temperatures, now is the perfect time to get outside! Enjoy the fresh air, work out your muscles, and enjoy the beauty of nature. Maybe you’d like to get out on the water. Perhaps you would prefer soaring through the sky. Regardless, you’ll find that there are so many outdoor adventures waiting for you on the island!
Kayak Tours: Immerse yourself in the island’s beautiful marshland and explore local waterways on a kayak tour! Not only is it a great workout, but it’s also an excellent opportunity to take in the natural beauty of the island.
Bike Trails: Pedal your way across the island’s 60 miles of paved bike paths and 19 miles of densely-packed sandy beaches. Remember, when you book a stay at Beach Properties, you’ll enjoy special discounts on bike rentals and equipment.
Fishing Charters: Have you ever been deep sea fishing? Now is your chance to experience the thrill of reeling in a massive catch! There are plenty of outstanding fishing and charter opportunities available on the island.
Water Sports: One of the main draws to the island is its endless opportunities for fun on the water! Try anything from renting catamarans and parasailing to jet skiing and paddle boarding.
& so much more!
