Thanksgiving in Hilton Head Island
How would you like to be fishing, golfing, taking in a spa treatment before filling up on the big Thanksgiving feast or strolling down the beach? A Thanksgiving getaway to Hilton Head sure beats the usual family tradition (once in a while). The island is located about 30 miles from Savannah and about 100 miles south of Charleston, with first class resorts and spas, world-class dining, and miles of sandy beaches to walk and maybe get a late fall tan. Fishing and golf are major draws here, and a multitude of championship courses including the world renowned Harbour Town golf links will easily tempt you away from watching holiday football.

VACATION RENTAL PROPERTIES - The best value for your family vacation
More and more travelers are discovering vacation rental properties all over the United States. Unlike traditional accommodations in a hotel or motel, finding the right vacation rental property can be one of life's greatest joys. Have you ever spent a week in a hotel where all the kids' clothes are thrown all over this 12 by 12 room? That's no fun. Vacation rentals in a place such as Hilton Head Island, South Carolina offer families their own homes away from home. Establishing this way to vacation with your family reduces stress and increases the pleasant memories you'll take home afterward.
Many vacation rentals are actually much less costly than a comparable hotel room or suite. The reason is simple - the overhead for an owner's single-property vacation rental is much lower than the promotion fees built into the rates of a major hotel chain. It follows the Coca-Cola example: the can costs 1.5 cents, the ingredients cost about a nickel, and the advertising and marketing cost 35 cents a can. How would you rather spend your money, on promotion or on product?

Traveling with “a Bump” and/or Small Children
When you're expecting, anticipate a different vacation from what you're used to. Preparation is essential. Plan carefully, spend a little more on nicer accommodations and rent a bigger more comfortable car for your trip if you own a small sporty one. Simplify your itinerary — and plan on bringing a sense of humor!
Traveling pregnant is just a warm-up exercise for your life for the next few years. It’s a peek into your future living with a 2- to five year old. You'll know the location of every restroom along your route! Then there's the moodiness - being bothered by everything, including but not limited to whining, crankiness, and cravings. And is there ever room for all the stuff you have to carry, much less for the actual people in the car?

It's Hurricane Season... But We Are Visiting Hilton Head Island
What if a storm hits Hilton Head Island before I get ready to go on vacation? The answer is simple... stay home!
But before you unpack, just check to make sure whether the Island has been affected. We have had many tropical storm warnings over the years, but unlike Florida we've been extremely fortunate. In our opinion, the best offense is defense. We recommend purchasing travel insurance. Even the most basic travel insurance will provide some compensation if flights are canceled or the island is closed down due to a hurricane.
