“But did you know that “it’s a great vacation spot for the furrier members of the family as well? If you’re looking to travel with your pet this year, let FlipKey help you find the perfect place to stay. When browsing our available properties in Hilton Head, use the pet friendly search filter to find the vacation rental that is right for you.

 Once you’ve settled into your home away from home, you’ll be ready to hit the beach with your dog. During the peak summer season from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day, dogs are not permitted on the beach between the hours of 10 am and 5 pm. Otherwise, your retriever is golden. During non-peak season, your pup is always welcome as long as he or she doesn’t mind wearing a leash.

If you and your dog need a way to work off all that good food, you can head to Chaplin Public Park and check out their enclosed dog park. It’s a terrific opportunity to relax and enjoy watching your dog make some new friends. If your pup prefers to be a lone wolf, it may be the perfect time to take advantage of Hilton Head Island’s 50 miles of public bike and nature trails instead. And with boat rides, sunset cruises, ziplining and parasailing, there are plenty of adventures for the human members of the family to enjoy as well.” Read more here.
