Overnight stay before HHI

Overnight stay before HHI

We have rented a house starting on 4/5 but thinking of coming in a day earlier. Can't wait to get back on the island! Any suggestions for where we can stay for one night that won't break the bank? We have 3 little ones (under 12) It doesn't have to be on the Island, maybe another fun, close town that will entertain us until we get to our "official vacation!" Again, not looking to spend too much. Our budget is quite tight after our weekly house rental which we ended up paying an additional $880 a week for pool heat! (how crazy is that?!!!) Thanks!

Best way is to book through Hot wire.

I second the suggestion for Beaufort. It's not a resort area, but it is a very attractive southern coastal community. There's a drive-in movie theater in town that may be a lot of fun for the kids, in addition to the quaint downtown and the waterfront park. Also check out the Kazoo Factory, which is a ton of fun for kids (and adults). Beaufort's about 45-50 minutes from Hilton Head, so it's not too far away. You should be able to get a decent hotel room for about $100 or less.

Airbnb.com is also a very good website for affordable accommodation. Close to HHI, I really like Bluffton which is very small and "arty". And here is some information about what to do with kids in downtown Bluffton: hiltonheadisland.org/island-vibe/…

Beaufort is a great suggestion. I have 2 little ones and we take them to Hunting Island State park. Look it up online it is a great way to spend the day with kids.
