5 things to do on Hilton Head when it rains..

Rain at the beach is something that is always expected, but never really planned for. You never really have a “rain plan” and the fear of being stuck indoors all day begins to fill your brain. We have decided to share with you a few of our favorite things to do while it rains.

1. Escape Games on Hilton Head


The best, new thing to do on Hilton Head is the Hilton Head Escape Room. If you haven’t had one pop up in your hometown, here is your chance!

Basically, it is a physical adventure game in which you and friends are put into a room and must solve your way out using a series of puzzles, clues and riddles provided by the game. In other words, you must “escape the room”. Players are given a set time limit to unveil the secret plot hidden within the room. The games are made up of a set of fictional locations, such as dungeons, space stations and prison cells. The clues and riddles will go along with the theme of the room. Doesn’t this sound exciting?

The Escape Room is conveniently located on the south end of Hilton Head at 10 Executive Park Drive and open 7 days a week!
