Last month on a vacation to Hilton Head, South Carolina we stayed in a house that we rented on the beach via Homeaway. We had our 2 kids with us and of course we had a blast! But, what if you want to do more then just go to the beach and pool everyday? What else can you do in Hilton Head with kids? Here’s some fun ideas and my review of a day spent in Sea Pines.
Fun Kids Activities On Hilton Head
Of course, you’ve got a wide open beach to enjoy in Hilton Head!
But What Else To Do With Kids?
Behind the gate at Sea Pines, we found the following fun activities to do with kids. It costs $6 at the gate to gain entrance to Sea Pines. Once inside, you have plenty of activities to keep you busy. Here are some of the fun things we did.
Fantastic Big Playground
The playground is mostly shaded and has lots to do for the kiddos! The playground has a sand ground which is soft and beach but, keep in mind. Most kids were going barefoot.
LAWTON Horse Stables and Animal Farm
There are tons of horses and ponies here and they are very friendly. The gift shop had a lot of fun souveneirs for kids (toys) and popsicles (for everyone.)
Bike Riding Local Animal Wildlife
Watch out for the gators! We spotted this monster at the entrance of Sea Pines! Luckily s/he was on the other side of the pond. We saw more swimming in other ponds throughout the community.
Grab a Family Friendly Lunch or Dinner in Harbortown
We ate at the Quarterdeck which is waterfront and was pretty good they had plenty of kids menu items along with complementary crayons and coloring paper. The kids liked it!
Hilton Head is very family friendly and we especially enjoyed our day behind the gate of Sea Pines which had a ton of fun stuff to do rather easily because of the close proximity of all the fun items above. We had a great time!
