With miles of beach, Hilton Head has no shortage of places for kids to play outside. But if you're looking for places for kids to unwind other than right on the shore, here are seven great places for them to expel some energy outdoors.
Named in tribute to the legendary Gregg Russell, who has delighted audiences with his musical performances under Harbour Town's famed Liberty Oak for 40 years, this nature-inspired playground features an incredible tree house embracing a great Live oak and numerous play centers for hours of fun.
The playground is adjacent to Harbour Town's main parking lot and wonderful collection of shops and restaurants, so you can easily grab a bite to eat or relax in a rocking chair with an ice cream cone afterward.
