​Join us for a July 4th Celebration on Hilton Head Island

Vicki Shivers - Wednesday, July 01, 2015

 The holiday weekend on Hilton Head Island promises to be a “big bang’ for the whole family with lots of planned activities and fireworks displays – you won’t want to miss all of the fun on Hilton Head Island!

One of the best things about a vacation on Hilton Head is that you can do as much or as little as you want to during your visit to the Island. If relaxing is your thing, renting a beachfront vacation home or villa may be just the ticket to help you de-stress and unwind. Kick back on one of our pristine beaches and let the Lowcounty tides wash away your stress or enjoy a refreshing dip in an ocean side pool with your favorite cocktail! If you’re looking to be in the middle of the action for the July 4th holiday, a harbourside villa vacation rental at Shelter Cove Harbour or Sea Pines’ Harbour Town will put the action at your doorstep!


There are plenty opportunities for fun on Hilton Head Island this July 4th weekend. For those looking to get out and get moving, “The 30th Annual Firecracker 5000 Road Race and Fun Walk” will be held on Saturday July 4 at 8:00am at the Shelter Cove Community Park. The Hilton Head Firecracker 5000, is the largest and oldest road race in Beaufort County.
