Back to school season is in full swing and we’re here to help you get your thinking cap on! Plan your next Hilton Head Island vacation around the school breaks and find the best vacation rentals available. So let’s take out that school calendar, brainstorm vacation ideas, and let’s get this homework done!

Fall Break

One of the best times to visit Hilton Head Island is during the fall break. Fewer crowds, pleasant temperatures, and plenty of outdoor activities are still available to entertain all pupils and grownups alike! Availability is limited for the fall of 2021, so get pen to paper and book a vacation rental for your fall break soon. 


Holiday Break

A common school of thought is that the time between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s is the best time for a family vacation to Hilton Head Island. Lower rates and bigger homes make for large family gatherings as easy as ABC! And with vacation rentals that offer privacy and resort style amenities, it’s hard not to make Hilton Head Island your playground during the holiday season!

Veteran’s, MLK, and President’s Days

Ace your next long weekend by booking a vacation around Veteran’s Day in November, Martin Luther King’s Day in January, or President’s Day in February! The short stays and long weekends will have your bookworms excited for a little recess during the school year. Plus, after preparing all those school lunches and driving around for after-school activities, you will also be in need of a little R&R to recharge for the rest of the school year.

Spring Break

A show of hands on planning early and getting the best rates and homes available! Booking your spring break rental at the beginning of the school year can help you secure the best homes for your needs at the best rates, so start researching homes for Spring of 2022!

Easter Break

Easter week falls in April, which passes with flying colors as an excellent time to come to Hilton Head Island with your family. With warmer temperatures, fewer visitors than in the summer, and the RBC Heritage taking place that same week, a vacation rental for Easter break will make the grade!

Teacher’s Development Days

No need to play hooky on certain (and seemingly random) days off during the school year. When Teacher Development Days call for some extra time off, you can earn high marks by booking a Hiton Head vacation home in the off-peak season.

Extra Credit: Ace Remote Learning!

If remote learning is still an option in your school district, why not plan a longer stay for work, study, and play? Book a long-term vacation rental so that you can hit the books and the beach, and make the most of the additional time during other random days of no school. 

Lastly, with homes that are fido-friendly, you can bring your teacher’s pet and family pet along for the trip!
