Fun out of the SunHilton Head's beaches are great for families, but on rainy days and in the winter, an indoor play space is a welcome respite. The Sandbox is an interactive museum where kids can pretend to be dinosaur hunters, pilots, pirates, and puppeteers. Children can learn about local wildlife, nature, and sea life, create art and music, and have fun with the many make-believe exhibits. There's a toddler area for very young kids, a porch to bring a picnic lunch, and regular story times. There are special programs during the school year and "parents' night out" events in the summer. Should the ocean beckon, Coligny Beach is minutes away.
