Sunset at the beach of Hilton Head Island
Curator’s statement

While traveling internationally adds that extra layer of excitement, sometimes with small children, it's not always feasible. If you are looking for a quick, easy to get to, domestic getaway, Hilton Head Island is a fantastic option. During the pandemic, we took a trip here and I absolutely loved it! You can get your fresh seafood fix, relax by the beach or the pool and engage in an array of activities perfect for the whole family!
