Families traveling for spring break this year need more than just one good reason to choose a destination. Palmetto Dunes, an oceanfront resort on Hilton Head Island that’s been serving families since the 1970’s, offers five great reasons for families to head south to the Lowcountry resort this March or April.

2) Boredom Busters – Parents can rest assured they won’t hear any complaints from their kids about being bored at Palmetto Dunes. The South Carolina resort, which offers 2,000 acres of space including three miles of beachfront, offers a full range of activities for all ages. Families can rent bikes, ride the beach and pedal the 50 miles of paved bike paths on the island, take in a round of golf at one of the resort’s three championship courses, play a round of tennis on the resort’s 25 courts or kayak the resort’s peaceful 11-mile inland lagoon. Other activities include stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, fishing charters, canoeing, crabbing, dolphin tours, and of course, relaxing at the beach.

3) A Golfer’s Paradise – Palmetto Dunes is known by many as a golf resort because of its variety of opportunities to play at its three championship courses. With numerous accolades, including being named among the top 25 best family golf resorts by a top-ranked golf publication and Fodor’s/Golf Digest bestowing four stars on all three courses, each provides a different playing experience. Among the most memorable holes is the oceanfront Par-5 10th on the Robert Trent Jones golf course, one of only two oceanfront holes on the island. Family opportunities are plentiful with kids younger than 12 able to play free with an adult and spring break junior golf clinics, family golf school, and Little Swingers classes for ages 3-7. Additionally, Palmetto Dunes has one of the only courses on the island with Junior Tees.

4) Plenty of Sunshine – Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort can be a welcome respite from the cold, sleet and snow northerners have experienced all winter. Hilton Head Island boasts an average high of 68 in March and 76 in April, great weather to get outdoors and enjoy all of the resort’s activities before the heat of summer. The resort also offers two very popular outdoor and kid-friendly dining options, including the beachfront Dunes House open to resort guests and the new Big Jim’s BBQ, Burgers & Pizza, a restaurant at the resort’s oceanfront Robert Trent Jones golf course.

5) New Music on the Harbour Series – New this year, Shelter Cove Harbour, located just across from the resort, will be hosting a special Music on the Harbour live music series on Thursday evenings in April and May, featuring several local bands. In addition to family-friendly live music, the shops and restaurants at Shelter Cove Harbour will offer specials, giving families an entertaining way to spend one of their spring break evenings.
