In the last week of May, we took a trip to Hilton Head. It's about a 4.5-hour drive from Atlanta which took us about six hours with stops. About five minutes into the drive, Owen started asking, "Are we there yet?" By the time we got into hour two, he was moaning, "Why is the beach so far from Atlanta?"
We stayed in a condo that we found on VRBO.com and it was convenient with two bedrooms, a kitchen and living room. It was a short walk to the beach and there was a swimming pool in the complex.
We met up with some friends from Owen's school and he had a
lot of fun with them. We went to a horse farm with a petting zoo. As a
special treat, Owen got to have ice cream at The Salty Dog. After
dinner, we walked to the beach and got to see a dolphin just a few feet
from the edge of the water.
Hilton Head is definitely family friendly -- we'd like to go back sometime!
