This is the time for you to plan a full day of activities for the entire family on the island. Enjoy the beach, eat out at the local restaurants, and pretend that you have traveled many many miles for this paradise when in reality you only had to sit in the car for 20 minutes. That is my kind of vacation, cheap, easy and fun. Here are some tips and ideas that you can use to make the most of your money in the Hilton Head area:
- Use COUPONS - I'm pretty sure that I've said this before, but knowing where to find the coupons is the key. Hilton Head businesses spend thousands of dollars each year to print these coupons and it is our job to use them.
- Check websites for specials and happy hours
- Ask if the restaurant or business offers any locals discounts, many do but they aren't advertised and they want your business in the off season, so even if they don't have an actual special, they may give you something just to bring you back in again.
- Join the Hilton Head Insiders Club which offers a card that brings with it many discounts in the area: http://www.hiltonheadisland.org/hilton-head-insider/restaurants.php

If you are located outside of the Hilton Head area, vacation close to home this year. Go online and check out the specials, visit a museum or historical site that you have never toured - take advantage of what your city has to offer!
