Life's a Beach - Family Trip to Hilton Head Island

We just returned from a great week at the beach with family. We rented a house on Hilton Head Island in Palmetto Dunes Plantation using Vacation Rentals by Owner (VRBO - link) and were thrilled with the house and surroundings. The weather was hot and steamy (typical) and we had one good sized summer storm. We did have a pool at the house which was liberally used. This is a quick return from vacation posting with some pictorial highlights.
A good place to start is the Coastal Discovery Center which includes a museum and art gallery and a nice walk through the grounds - link
An off-island trip to Beaufort, SC, is a must - we highly recommend a horse-drawn carriage tour of the historic district.
A visit to the lighthouse and Salty Dog Cafe in Sea Pines Plantation is a must for first-time visitors!
Another great off-island trip is to Daufuskie Island via ferry and golf cart - quiet and serene.
Shelter Cove Marina has restaurants and shops and, this evening, children's entertainment.
I was able to drag my husband to this design center - I have a VERY hard time staying away from these type of shops.

So, this should have convinced you to make this trip - it is lovely and worth multiple returns!
