Coastal regions make for some of the best vacation spots during the summer, and it’s no surprise as to why. If you’re from somewhere exceptionally hot, the summer heat can be pretty tough to get through, especially when you’re keeping busy at work and getting through the day. So, what better way to escape it all than by having your own scenic island retreat to enjoy? Hilton Head Island gets warm during the summer, for sure, but it stays at a comfortable temperature, especially with the added benefits of the cool coastal breeze.
While you’re enjoying that wonderful coastal air, there will be plenty of different activities for you to enjoy. Obviously, one of the most popular choices is to head down to one of the scenic Hilton Head Island beaches and enjoy the moment, maybe even go for a swim if you’re looking to really cool off. Wildlife watching and golfing are also great things to do while you’re on your Hilton Head vacation, with plenty of guided tours to help you spot all of the local wildlife and quite a few challenging links style golf courses for you to sharpen your skills at. Whatever your choice, you’ll be able to finish the night off in style at one of the amazing restaurants that make their home on the island.
Booking in Advance Saves Money
Budgeting can be the hardest part of putting a vacation together, so it’s important that you’re smart about it to avoid any potential stress somewhere down the line. The more money you save on all of the travel necessities, the more money you’ll have to spend doing the things you love while you’re enjoying the rest and relaxation you deserve. One of the best ways to start off on the right foot is to book your vacation home pretty far in advance, that way you can make sure you’re getting the best possible rate on your stay. Not only that, if you wait too long, there’s a good chance you’ll find the perfect home for your stay only to find that someone else beat you to the punch. The more proactive you are, the less you’ll have to worry later.
There are definitely some other benefits to booking early, too, like avoiding any potential last minute booking fees that you might have to worry about without proper planning. You’ll also have your choice of location on the island, meaning you can choose a rental that’s closer to all of the things you want to experience during your stay. Cutting down on all of that extra travel time gives you more vacation time to make the most of.
Extra Planning Time Is Always Good
You’re going on vacation to decompress, and you’ve been working hard for weeks, months, or maybe even longer to make sure everything goes according to plan. If you wait too long to start putting your trip together, you might just end up creating more unnecessary stress for yourself, since making last-minute arrangements can be really tough and you might even run into some dead ends. Trying to fit all of that planning into a short span of time might start your trip off on the wrong foot and avoiding that is important since you want to have a good time from the moment you start your trip. You don’t necessarily even need a full schedule for your trip but having some ideas will definitely help you spend your time wisely.
If you’re looking for some unique things to enjoy while you’re visiting the island, don’t be afraid to look up what the upcoming events are in the coming months. If there’s something that speaks to you as a summer event, you might even be able to shift your schedule around to make the trip happen at the same time.

Sometimes the harsh winter cold and constant snowfall can get to be too much, and as nice as having a white Christmas can be, sometimes you want to get away from it all and enjoy some warmer weather and not worry about shoveling your driveway. Hilton Head Island is a great destination for that very thing, and it’s filled with opportunities to hit the beaches. In fact, it stays warm enough that on some sunny days you’ll even be able to go for a swim if the weather’s right.
Hilton Head Island also has its fair share of Christmas-themed events for you to enjoy while you’re visiting. Just because you’re away from home doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the holiday spirit, giving you the best of both worlds. That being said, here are some recommendations for things to do while you’re spending Christmas in Hilton Head Island.
Brunch with Santa
Alexander’s Restaurant & Wine Bar will be hosting an all-ages event where you can participate in their annual brunch with Santa. Guests will be treated to a two-course meal, and there’s plenty of spare time to get photos with Santa before you head out. This is a wonderful way to enjoy some upscale seafood and seasonal-themed cuisine with a holiday twist. Reservations aren’t required, but they’re definitely recommended. You won’t want to miss out on your chance to get a table.
Holiday Fun in Harbour Town
Centered around the Liberty Oak Tree in Harbour Town, this event will treat you to viewings of classic holiday movies, roasted marshmallows, and train rides around the harbor. It’s a great family friendly event for a good cause, because entry is free as long as you provide at least a single canned food item for the Deep Well charity, so get in the generous holiday spirit and help those less fortunate while having some fun.
Live Music at the Jazz Corner
If you’re in town on December 11th, there will be two concerts happening at 6:30 and 9:30PM, featuring Cranford Hollow. This is a former touring band that opened for large international acts, and has since decided to stay local, meaning you likely won’t be able to see them if you aren’t from the area. They’ll be performing their unique “low-country stomp” style for you to enjoy, so don’t miss the opportunity.
Hit the Beaches in Your Spare Time
Though this might seem like it goes without saying, you’ll have a great time hitting the beaches while you’re visiting the island. They’re absolutely gorgeous year-round, and since you’re visiting outside of peak season, you’ll have plenty of extra space to enjoy the peace and quiet with. You’ll be able to walk for hours every day if you like, and with miles of beach to explore you can always find something new.
Explore the Island
With plenty of fine dining and shopping all in a relatively short distance, you can spend plenty of time taking in the sights and finding what helps make Hilton Head Island the unique place that it is. Since it doesn’t ever get down to freezing weather, you might enjoy renting a bike and taking it for a ride around the island. It’s a great way to get around, and you can make plenty of different stops in a short amount of time.
Enjoy Christmas Dinner in Your Vacation Home
Christmas dinner is often the main event of the holiday, giving family and friends a chance to get together and show their appreciation for each other over a nice meal. Just because you’re away from home doesn’t mean you have to miss out on dinner, because our vacation rentals come with fully equipped kitchens. You’ll love using our modern appliances to put together the Christmas meal of your dreams, and you’ll have plenty of space to make that happen. You can even put together a uniquely local meal by getting ingredients on the island.
With plenty of open seating space, you and the family can gather at the dining room table to have a traditional sit down with each other, and when dinner finally comes to a close, head to the living room to share your gifts with each other.
