It’s hard to believe that spring is here, and the weather is finally starting to warm up a bit. Spending time on the Hilton Head Island with the family for a bit of vacation this spring is just what you may need. Staying in one of our Luxury Hilton Head Island vacation rentals will allow you and the family to relax a little more on this trip. Let’s look below at what you and the family can look forward to doing this spring here on the island.
Harbour Town Lighthouse
Have you and your family ever visited the Harbour Town Lighthouse before? If you haven’t, then you are definitely in for a treat on your visit! Located on Lighthouse Road in Hilton Head Island is where you will be able to find this beautifully red & white Lighthouse. For the last five decades, the Harbour Town Lighthouse has become an iconic lighthouse for many captains of ships in the Harbour. Visiting the Lighthouse will allow you and your family to enjoy the museum located inside the Lighthouse. As you climb, you will get to go through the history of Hilton Head Island. They are open every day from 10:00 am to sunset, and don’t forget to visit the gift shop to bring home a little Hilton Head Island history with you!
Coastal Discovery Museum
Another place that you and your family can do this spring here on Hilton Head Island is going check out the Coastal Discovery Museum. Located on Honey Horn Drive, you will find this fantastic museum that will make you not want to leave. You can experience many different exhibits: Lowcountry through the Seasons, Santa Elena, Discovery Lab, Grounds & Gardens, and the Kids Zone. You may find a few things located in the Kids Zone meeting “Myrtle,” who is a Diamondback Terrapin, along with a bird’s nest cam, and even go on a bit of scavenger hunt fun for the whole family! The Coastal Discovery Museum is open Monday to Saturday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, and Sunday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. While admission is free of charge to the museum, they offer tours and educational programs available for additional costs. Think of the fun you will have to explore this museum while on your next trip to Hilton Head Island.
Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge
If you have someone in the family who loves the adventure of seeing wildlife, then head on over to the nearby Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge. Located less than 10 minutes from downtown Hilton Head Island is where you’ll find the wildlife refuge. You may happen to see some of the wildlife while there are egrets, herons, bald eagles, alligators, and yes, even an armadillo! We recommend that you bring plenty of sunscreen and bug spray for your trip to the Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge. Be sure to bring your camera fully charged with you, as well as there will be plenty of photo opportunities while visiting the refuge to remember your trip.
