Are you looking for a vacation this spring that isn’t all about the relaxation? Did you know that Hilton Head is one of the top active spring break destinations around? Better still, Palmetto Dunes offers some of the best ways to get out and do something without even having to leave their resort.
Top Active Spring Break Destinations: Hilton Head’s Palmetto Dunes
Five miles of bike trails, 26 tennis courts, 3 golf courses, 3 miles of Atlantic Ocean beach, 11-mile inland lagoon system for fishing and kayaking — there’s no excuse not to get outdoors at Hilton Head Island’s Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. This family-friendly resort, named to Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Family Getaways and Conde Nast Traveler’s Top 20 Resorts in the South, offers sunny skies, mild spring temperatures and a pristine natural environment with sand dunes, oaks draped with hanging moss and plenty of palm trees, to boot.
Please consider Palmetto Dunes for any upcoming Spring Break or summer destination stories, especially for families. Not only is there a wealth of activities, the resort is affordable with rates for vacation rentals that include separate bedrooms, full kitchens and washer/dryers starting at only $165/night — less expensive than many hotel rooms.
