CHARLESTON, S.C., Feb. 7, 2014 – Offering endless beachfront fun and outdoor exploration, Wild Dunes Resort, by Destination Hotels & Resorts, turns the task of planning a vacation teens will enjoy from tricky to “take me.” Located minutes from downtown Charleston, Wild Dunes Resort is a haven for freedom-chasing teenagers. From kayaking salt marshes to catching crabs to crafting a DIY body scrub, teens are sure to have a blast with a bounty of activities and excursions available throughout the spring and summer found in the Resort’s Family Vacation Planner. A sampling of activities include:

Bike Tour Crabbing- BYOB

BYOB or Bring Your Own Bike: Teens can journey by bike to a number of crabbing spots on the resort property and learn the art of baiting, securing and reeling in the swimming pinchers. Teens are requested to catch and release.

Fly Fishing

Lowcountry experts will teach teens the basics of casting on land so they can reel in the prize at sea. Sessions end with fun competitions, including the longest and the most accurate cast. Open to ages 12 and up.

Three-Hour Morgan Creek Kayaking Paddle

Outdoor enthusiasts can explore some of the most beautiful salt marshes in the Lowcountry on a three-hour kayak adventure. Paddlers are sure to spot a variety of creatures along the way including herons, pelicans, gulls, dolphins, turtles and otters.

SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding)

The fastest growing water sport in the world, SUP combines a solid core workout with spectacular wildlife viewing. A tour guide will teach basic skills and transform newbies into pros in a matter of minutes. Those looking for more of a challenge can also SUP ocean surf or take a SUP Fitness class similar to Pilates or Yoga.

Fear No Easel Art Class

Teenage Picassos can find inspiration in the beautiful backdrop of an ocean view as a professional artist guides them through an acrylic painting. Makes a great early Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift.

DIY Beach Body Scrub

The creative and crafty ones can try out sugar and spice and everything nice with a Do-It-Yourself body scrub station. With a variety of sweet smelling scents and decorative jars available, teens will love creating take-home beauty treatments and showing them off to their friends and family.

Driving distance to downtown Charleston, Wild Dunes Resort offers the “best of both worlds” for teens and parents alike, pairing a beach getaway with the tremendous offerings of historic Charleston. While teens are independently exploring, parents can enjoy the resort’s abundance of amenities including 36 holes of championship golf, 17 tennis courts, watersports, spa services, resort-wide pools, and delicious dining options. While off property, the entire family can take advantage of the many offerings of downtown Charleston including shopping on King Street, the South Carolina Aquarium, Ghost and Graveyard Walking Tours, the Historic Charleston Market, carriage rides, plantation experiences and much more.
