3 Firworks Celebrations for July 4th in Hilton Head Island

fireworksThe 4th of July holiday is such a fantastic time to be in Hilton Head Island! Picture fireworks, festivities, music and so much more to celebrate our independence and the summer itself.

This year our area has three fireworks displays for you that will be enjoyed whether you’re here on a family vacation, romantic getaway, or are one of our residents!

1. Shelter Cove Harbour
This free and family friendly 4th of July celebration takes place at Shelter Cove Harbour during our annual signature summer event, Harbourfest, which occurs June through August. At dusk on the 4th, you’ll see an extravagant display of fireworks over the harbor and you can even take a guided kayak tour to see the fireworks from a unique point of view! Shannon Tanner, a staple at Harbourfest since 1988, will be performing a variety of patriotic selections at 6:30pm and 8:00pm.

During HarbourFest, Shelter Cove features live entertainment seven nights a week, plus unforgettable food, arts and crafts from an array of vendors, bouncy houses, fireworks on Tuesdays and even more fun activities.

2. For live, outside entertainment, visit any of these three restaurants on the water, starting at 6:00pm:

The fireworks start at 9:30 and will be launched from a barge in the Intracoastal Waterway/Skull Creek. There will be food and drinks at all three locations, so they ask that you do not bring coolers.

3. Harbour Town
Harbour Town will have a variety of festivities including children’s activities, live music, food and drinks, and of course fireworks! The fireworks will begin about 9:15 (dusk) from a barge in Calibogue Sound. There is a $5.00 gate fee to enter the resort (unless you are a resident or guest staying on the resort) and a free shuttle service will be offered between Harbour Town and various parking lots in the Sea Pines Resort. Again, no coolers, please.

If you’ll be here in Hilton Head Island on vacation or are not familiar with the area, town ordinances prohibit the launch or discharge of fireworks within town limits and specifically from the beach.

How do you plan on celebrating the 4th of July this year?

Coligny Beach Park: Best Family Beach in Hilton Head Island

Coligny Beach ParkWhether you’re on a family vacation or your family lives in Hilton Head Island, there’s no doubt that going to the beach is one of the things you look forward to. While our area is home to 12 miles of gorgeous sandy beaches, Coligny Beach Park is the most family friendly AND fun for adults too. In fact, in 2011, Parents Magazine named Coligny Beach Park the #2 Best Family Beach out of thousands of beaches across the United States!

The beach is located at Coligny circle which intersects Pope Avenue with North and South Forest Beach Drive. At the beach, you’ll find restrooms, outdoor showers, pay phones, WI-FI, and is handicap-accessible. In addition to all of that, The Holiday Inn on the beach has volleyball courts as well as a full service outdoor bar called The Tiki Hut.

One of the things that is especially kid-friendly, and safe, about Coligny Beach is the shallow water. You have to walk out about thirty feet to be above 3 feet of water. At low-tide, you can wade and swim in the pools of water and even find a few beach friends like sand dollars and starfish.

Your Guide to the 12 Miles of Hilton Head Island Beaches

This is one of the best parts; since the re-design, Coligny Beach Park features fountains with synchronized jets! Not only are the fountains fun for kids and adults, it’s the perfect way to rinse off the salty ocean water after being at the beach!

Coligny Beach Park has other fun things you can do during your visit. Cool off in a swing under a gazebo, relax in the rocking chairs or Adirondack chairs, and taking family pictures are just a few.

Directly across from the beach is a major retail area called Coligny Plaza. Not just any retail area either, but a place that offers shopping and dining, entertainment, and a movie theatre.

What are your favorite things to do on the beach?
