SKIP MOM AND DAD THIS SUMMER: WILD DUNES RESORT INTRODUCES GREAT GRANDS PACKAGE FOR GRANDFATHERS AND GRANDKIDS

CHARLESTON, S.C., May 20, 2013 – In the past decade, multigenerational travel has been on the rise as a great option for families to reconnect and create memories. Today, “skip generational” travel has become popular for grandparents who wish to leave the parents at home for some one-on-one time with their grandchildren. Therefore, Wild Dunes Resort, located on a lush barrier island minutes from downtown Charleston, is launching its Great Grands Package.

Available from May 29 - September 2, 2013, the two-night Great Grands Package starts at $309 per night and includes:

  • Nightly accommodations in a two-bedroom condominium for up to four guests
  • Capers Island Exploration for two adults and two children: Guests cruise aboard a shaded vessel to Caper’s Island and explore wildlife found in the Lowcountry’s saltmarsh. During the excursion, sightings include dolphins, egrets, herons, crabs, oyster beds and more
  • Carriage Tour Downtown for two adults and two children: Grandpa has seen it all and now he can share a history lesson that will catch the attention of the grandchildren. ¬†Families explore the sites, gardens, churches, mansions and streets of Charleston’s historic district by horse drawn carriage
  • Sunday Night Family Fire Pit at Palm Cove, ideal for grandkids and grandparents to kick back and dine poolside, followed by a marshmallow roast over an open fire pit

Driving distance to downtown Charleston, Wild Dunes Resort offers the best of both worlds, coupling a beach getaway with the tremendous offerings of historic Charleston. Occupying 1,600 acres between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, Wild Dunes Resort’s natural landscape paired with its amenities offers a year-round menu of outings with 36 holes of golf, 17 ¬†tennis courts, watersports, spa, resort-wide pools, children’s programming, dining and recreational activities, all conveniently packaged in the summer vacation planner.

While off property, guests take advantage of the abundant offerings of downtown Charleston including shopping on King Street, the aquarium, eateries, the Historic Charleston Market, children’s museum, plantation experiences, ghost tours and much more.
