Vacation needs to be fun for everyone! And while your teenager might be content to lie on the beach every day, your younger kids might need something a little more active once in a while. Not to mention, even your teenager needs some help on rainy days. Never fear! Hilton Head has enough kid-friendly activities to keep your kids looking forward to vacation even as much as the adults.

The Sandbox Children’s Museum

The Sandbox is the perfect way to get your smallest tykes excited about vacations to come when they remember the fun they had here. This attraction is perfect for babies through preschoolers with educational and fun exhibits.

Coastal Discovery Museum

Kids or not, the Coastal Discovery Museum is one attraction that should be on everyone’s list. Whether your kids are into history, art, or nature, there is something for anyone. Younger kids will enjoy scavenger hunts and other weekly events, shows, and tours. This is the ideal place to visit on a rainy day.

Adventure Cove

Your active older kids (over age 5) will love a day to play at Adventure Cove. The miniature golf course could be a building block for your budding young golfers. But more than likely, they will enjoy the arcade even more. Gaming away from the home games (with prizes to boot!) will keep even the most pessimistic kid motivated to have fun.


Of course, these ideas are only the tip of the iceberg. And if your family is all planned out? Go ahead and freestyle it for the week. Relax on the beach, watch some nature, or go for a bike ride. Nothing is wrong when you’re in Hilton Head!
