  For the Kids!

Hilton Head Island is the perfect place for a memorable
family vacation, and the kids will have a great time, too.

There is truly a variety of children's activities to choose from. There is a recreation center on the island for those rainy days that occasionally occur. The library is a short distance from Palmetto Dunes, just off 278. There are great "young golfer" programs with reduced rates for the young golfers who go out in the afternoon. Tennis programs and clinics abound with some of the best instruction anywhere. Ledgendary Miniature Golf offers golf all day on their two courses for about $10.00 a day. Blockbuster's has a large video rental store across from Wexford Plantation; we and the kids often use this nearby resource as a conclusion to our active days.

Here's the statue of Poseidon in the center square at Shelter Cove, where Shannon Tanner holds forth, and where the young folks gather. All around this delightful spot you'll find many shops, good places to eat, and lots of people, both young and not-so-young!

The kids can take a walk along the harbor just to the left of this scene and stare wide-eyed at the many fabulous yachts berthed in the beautiful marina.


For a family outing, enjoy a day at the WaterFun park, or explore the many acres of Forest Preserves on the Island. Miniature golf is a favorite, and Hilton Head has several courses sure please everyone. You can also enjoy the miles of bike trails while rollerblading or biking with your family. The true family favorite is the beach, and beachgoers are often treated to offshore dolphin displays as fine as those seen from the "dolphin watch" charter boats. The picture to the left was snapped from the boat while dolphin watching in Broad Creek, in the center of Hilton Head Island.
