Many times when you want to take a vacation during the school year, your child’s school is not the most cooperative. Vacations are often not allowed – but educational trips are. So, in order to plan your vacation, you need to satisfy the school’s requirement of a written description of what will be learned while your child is out of the classroom. The good news is that there are plenty of educational opportunities in Hilton Head which will keep your vacation just as exciting as any other.


The Coastal Discovery Museum

Your number one stop for learning about the nature that surrounds the Hilton Head area is the Coastal Discovery Museum. While there, you can choose the amount of time you want to spend in various areas – there are land tours as well as water experiences. Sign up for a tour or do a self-guided tour to learn all about the low country of South Carolina- the flora, the fauna, or even the ocean.


The Arts Center of Coastal Carolina

If you are hoping for an education experience for your child in the fine arts, check out the offerings at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina. Your family can tour their visual arts area or get tickets for a show. This is also the venue for many special events and festivals. Looking for a summer opportunity to immerse your child in the arts? The Arts Center offers various camps for your child to try while in the area for the summer.

Even if you choose to make your trip educational as spontaneity leads you, the opportunities to teach your children or learn yourself about what makes Hilton Head special are never-ending. Come and enjoy all there is to offer.
