Visitors have been coming to Hilton Head Island for decades for a relaxing vacation with great food, entertainment and family friendly activities.
But if you haven’t been coming to Hilton Head for your annual vacation, it can be rather difficult to figure out not only where things are located, but also if they are family friendly. A big portion of Hilton Head Island is geared towards adults, so how are you to know where children will fit in?
Here is are some great family activities all over the Island that both kids and parents are sure to enjoy:
Shelter Cove Towne Centre has become a big shopping destination on the island, with multiple boutiques and brand name stores, along with amazing places to eat. Poseidon, arguably the most popular seafood restaurant of the season, boasts great food and a fun rooftop bar. Not to mention it’s right across the street from Shelter Cove Community Park.
Located at 40 Shelter Cove Ln. For more information, call 843-686-3090.
2. Hilton Head Dolphin Cruise and Nature Tour
This family friendly activity may cost more, but with guaranteed dolphin sightings on every excursion it is well worth it. Drifting down Hilton Head’s Broad Creek, you and your family are bound to see multiple species and take in some amazing views of the Island. Just be sure everyone wears sunscreen out on the boat!
Located at 18 Simmons Rd. For more information, call 843-681-2522.
This museum is a great place for the family to visit since there is no age limit on fun! Come here to learn about the wildlife, history and traditions of the Lowcountry and its surrounding areas, by experiencing it first hand at the Coastal Discovery Museum located at Honey Horn.

4. The Sandbox
This immersion discovery museum aims to teach younger children science through play. Families are welcome to join in and learn along with their children inside this great museum. The Sandbox hosts various events all summer long, as well as throughout the rest of the year, to help engage children in learning and fun since, as you’ll learn at this museum, the two are far from exclusive.

5. Pirates Island Adventure Golf
