Spend Father’s Day on Holden Beach this Year

This year instead of getting dad something that he may never use, gift him with a family vacation to Holden Beach this year. Staying in one of our many Holden Beach vacation rentals will keep you and your family together. Let’s take a peek at a few of the things that you and your family can enjoy on your Father’s Day vacation this year!


One thing that is good when you rent a vacation home here on Holden Beach is that there is a vacation rental large enough for the whole family. We can tell you that we have homes that will fit the smallest to the largest sized families and we even have pet-friendly rentals too. Don’t worry about not having enough rooms for the kids as they can all have their own in some of the vacation homes, we have available. And you will also have a fully stocked kitchen (without the food), washer & dryer and even beach access. There is something about staying in a vacation home rather than a hotel on any family vacation!

Family Game Night

Another thing that your family can do after a long day at the beach is to play a family game together. It doesn’t have to be all about competition, but it’s about spending time together as a family and with dad. It’s his day too, and his vacation, so let him pick the first game to play and then just have a good time. And no, it doesn’t mean that you have to play Monopoly because like most families that can get out of hand very quickly. Just have a good time together and make new memories.

Spend the Day at the Beach

Spending the day at the beach is what vacationing on Holden Beach is for. It’s not for staying indoors all day long, it’s all about the new adventures you can make with your family. Be sure to bring the beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys, and a cooler onto the beach with you. If you happen to have an oceanfront vacation rental, then you can just go back inside for refills of your drinks or food. Listen to the kids play in the background as they build a sandcastle, or they try to make sand animals. Sit back and relax while you’re on vacation!

While there are many other fun things that you and the family can do together in Holden Beach, these are the few we wanted to share with you. If you haven’t booked your Father’s Day vacation as of yet, now is the time. We can’t wait to hear all about the new memories that you made together on this fun trip!
