Sea Pines: The area at the end of the island is called Sea Pines. The park area ( Harbour Town) is fun to walk around in, with lots of huge boats and entertainment most evenings.  There are also lots of good restaurants in the area. The kids will love the performances by Greg Russell under the big Oak Tree—check the paper for times and dates.

Shelter Cove: Fireworks every Tuesday night during the summer, plus entertainment most nights. Plenty of shopping and restaurants in this area to fill your evening.

Restaurants: there are over 100 restaurants in the area, from sports bars to elegant dining. Casual attire is generally acceptable in most establishments, and many are appropriate for children.
