Rainy Day Activities on Hilton Head

13 Rainy Day Activities on Hilton Head

It’s raining. You’re bummed because you came to Hilton Head to enjoy the beautiful beach and gorgeous sunny weather but you’re stuck inside with the kids and googling “what to do in the rain on Hilton Head.”  We’ve got you!  Here are FUN things you can do today on Hilton Head Island in the rain! 

Chronic Golf

Located on the South end of the Island near Beachside Getway headquarters, you will find this new state-of-the-art virtual reality headquarters. Play golf, hockey, tennis, basketball, tennis and more in an indoor environment. Book a simulator bay in a private lounge setting with your friends and family and they are sure to forget about the rain and missed pool time.

Duck Donuts

Eat your feelings! Just kidding. You will enjoy the process of going to Duck Donuts and choosing your hot, fresh donut and then toppings. Kids love the experience of building their own gourmet donut and you’ll love seeing their happy faces.

The Sandbox Children's Museum

The Sandbox Children’s Museum is a great place to go with kids in the rain (or even to get out of the sun on a hot day.)  Visit the shadow maker room, the giant sandcastle, S.T.E.A.M lab, veterinary area, and take flight with the simulator. It’s a children’s delight and a great way to spend a few hours!

Park Plaza Cinema 

Pop on over to Park Plaza Hilton Head Cinema and catch the latest movie at one of the most charming privately owned cinemas in the country. (Really, it’s won all sorts of awards!) Get beer and wine, a great selection of food, traditional popcorn and candy fare, and kick back in large, comfy reclining leather seats. 

Station 300, SC Zone & K1-Speed (Bluffton) 

Drive about 30 minutes off island and find yourself at Station 300. This indoor arade and bowling alley offers plenty of family and adult indoor fun.  Also consider the SC Zone, which has batting cages, indoor laser tag, a mechanical bull, and a very difficult and trippy mirror maze.  You could also try K1-Speed out in Bluffton which our area’s largest indoor go-carting track. It’s huge! With over 20,000 square feet, you can ride at top speeds (safely, of course) and have a blast with the whole family.

The Art Cafe 

For artsy folks or those who are just really looking for something to do in the rain, consider a visit to The Art Café on Hilton Head!  This pottery painting studio gives visitors a wide range of options of finished pottery to paint. From ornaments to small items, all the way to large bowls, there are many options from which to choose. Then pick your paint! There are dozens of paint colors and you may be surprised to see just how much fun you have painting your pottery piece!

Go Shopping

Whatever shopping you are looking for, Hilton Head and Bluffton is sure to have it.  From outlet mall shopping with big name brands like Nike to small-town boutique shopping, you can certainly kill some time and be entertained by all the Hilton Head Island shopping. 

Atomic VR

Hilton Head Escape Room

Don’t let the rain get you down! If there’s one thing that we have learned living on Hilton Head, is that it rarely rains ALL day on the island. Usually, storms blow in and blow out.  If you find yourself on a rare occasion with a total washout, consider yourself lucky and give yourself permission to embrace doing nothing. Sit on your comfortable couch or bed in your vacation rental, curl up with a book, take a nap, and do what you came to do on Hilton Head – relax! And if your children or family is preventing you from doing that, consider calling a babysitter!  

Wishing you a happy rainy day on Hilton Head from everyone at Beachside Getwaway.
