Family Fun on the Isle of Palms at Wild Dunes Resort

Wild Dunes Resort on the Isle of Palms

Isle of Palms, one of Charleston’s barrier islands, is located just 30 minutes from the historic city of Charleston, South Carolina. The island offers sweeping  views of marsh, the intracoastal waterway and six miles of white, sandy beaches. Located at the northern end of the Isle of Palms is Wild Dunes Resort, a Destination Hotel with its AAA Four-Diamond rated Boardwalk Inn and the Village at Wild Dunes. Having recently stayed at Wild Dunes Resort, I can highly recommend it for a relaxing and fun family vacation. Check out all my recommendations for what to do and where to eat on the Isle of Palms.

Years ago, Myrtle Beach, S.C., was a popular golf destination for all-male buddy trips, corporate executive outings and bachelor parties. Men would make their annual golf trek, leaving the wife and kids behind. Today, visitors are discovering a family-friendly golf mecca that also offers upscale entertainment, a bustling nightlife, outstanding restaurants, shopping and sandy beaches where flip-flops are always in style.

Myrtle Beach’s 97 kilometres of picturesque coastline, aptly called the “Grand Strand,” is most famous for its bustling beach atmosphere, replete with live entertainment, amusement parks, acclaimed seafood restaurants, great shopping and world-class golf. But the area also has a quieter side thanks to the beaches, wetlands and quaint fishing villages on its southernmost end.
