Now that the global pandemic has ingrained social distancing in our minds, Americans have discovered a few individual (or small group) activities that can continue to be fun once the world has been set free again. A scavenger hunt is one of those activities perfectly suited for vacation towns like Hilton Head. Interested in trying one out? Here are a few to get you started.

Tickets for this scavenger hunt can be purchased on the internet. This walking hunt will start in Harbour Town and take you just over one mile around town. The focus is on history and art, and there’ll be plenty of fun along the way. Put aside about two hours to complete this event.
