Hilton Head or Amelia Island for a week in July (with 2, 18 year olds)

Jump to last reply

I've finally lost my battle of vacations... instead of a nice, "national park" vacation with TONS of hiking, we are going on a "relaxing" beach vacation.

I am going with my wife and two 18 year olds. We are driving from southern Indiana through Savannah to.... well, that's the point of my post - I'm not sure where we should go from there. As a nod to me, we'll be spending the first two days in Savannah. It sounds interesting and will give me a chance to get my history fix. We'll then go and spend the next five days in a rented condo on the beach for the rest of the family.

A friend of mine went to Amelia Island and thought it was a nice place. However, in reading these boards, it sounds like Hilton Head is a nice stop as well (and an hour closer). Ideally, I'd be looking for somewhere with some nice beaches (the hard-pack "dirt" beaches on Hilton Head sound a little discouraging) as well as plenty of other little things to do (for me). I'd like bike riding, tennis, hiking, kayak rentals, and historical stuff. Also, we would be interested in small shops, etc. with some local character and charm as opposed to strip malls with ABC stores....

Do you have any opinions about these islands (or some other option)? I'd love to hear any opinions.

Thanks!
