Celebrate Memorial Day on Hilton Head Island

Vicki Shivers - Thursday, May 21, 2015

 May is an ideal time to visit Hilton Head Island, with near perfect weather, and lots of planned festivities for the extended Memorial Day holiday weekend. We look forward to and welcome you to join us each Memorial Day for warm spring days that bring backyard barbecues, outdoor concerts, picnics in the park, rounds of golf on manicured courses, and days spent at our favorite Hilton Head beaches.


Celebrated the last Monday in May each year, Memorial Day commemorates U.S. Soldiers who died in military service and is a special day we pay tribute to their sacrifice and celebrate their lives. This holiday is meant to serve as a memorial to our fallen heroes, and is often celebrated with parades and fireworks for the occasion.

During the 20th century, the Memorial Day holiday began to be known as an occasion for a long weekend devoted to shopping, family get-togethers, fireworks and trips to the beach. Even though summer doesn’t officially start until a month or so after the Memorial Day weekend, most of us treat this three-day holiday weekend as the official beginning of summer!


A visit to Hilton Head Island is the perfect way to spend a long holiday weekend with family, friends or that special someone. With a variety of vacation rental choices available from oceanfront villas to golf cottages and marina side condos, make plans to spend and enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend on Hilton Head Island and join us for the festivities and celebration.
