September Grandparents Weekend Gets Special Treatment at Charleston Island Resort
Wild Dunes Resort, managed by Destination Hotels and Resorts, invites grandma and grandpa to bring their children, and their children's children for a weekend of activity-packed family fun in the sun in honor of Grandparent's Day. This year, Grandparent's Weekend takes place September 10-12. National Grandparent's Day is the first Sunday after Labor Day each year.
"Gramps Camp" starts with a variety of activities ranging from a scavenger hunt, to a nine-hole afternoon golf outing, to Lowcountry Olympics - an easy-going, local take on the international games. Edgar's Italian Restaurant and the Sea Island Grill offer family dining specials and an atmosphere that fosters great conversation between the generations. After dinner, families can retire to the AAA four diamond-rated Boardwalk Inn, or one of Wild Dunes newly renovated "family friendly" vacation villas - both of which are being discounted up to 15% for the weekend.
Morning sun and the smell of fresh-cut grass welcome families to the Grand Pavilion lawn and two classic games - croquet and bocce ball. After watching the little ones take their shots with the mallet, hop on bicycles available for rent and spend an afternoon riding around the resort, taking in the surroundings and catching up with loved ones.
Evening fun is spelled B-I-N-G-O in the Island House. Play against one another or team up as a family - prizes will be awarded and good times are a given! Cap the evening off with a stroll on the beach, a spread blanket, and a sunset that each generation will remember for years to come.
