New Year’s Resolutions for the Travel Lover

For travel lovers, the start of a new year can mean the exciting welcoming of new travel plans and adventures. We’ve compiled a list of New Year’s resolutions for you to try in 2018, to make this your best travel year yet!

1. Try New Things

With our hectic lives and busy daily routines, it can be easy to forget to change things up. But what better time is there to try something new than while on vacation? Whether it’s a new dish you’ve never thought of trying, surfing lessons, or Pickleball, add something new to your travel itinerary in 2018!

2. Live Like a Local

Wherever you choose to travel in the New Year, make it your goal to act like a local. Try a local cuisine (like a Lowcountry meal of Shrimp & Grits on Hilton Head Island at Alexander's Restaurant), explore new areas you may not have read about in your guidebook. Speak to the people you’re staying with about where to go, or strike up a conversation with locals when you’re out and about. Who knows what interesting, hidden gems you can discover!

3. Take Time to Unwind

Sometimes when planning a vacation, we try to squeeze in as much as we possibly can. To get the most out of your vacation days, make sure to schedule some time to relax and unwind. Luckily, Palmetto Dunes has three miles of idyllic, pristine beachfront, so grab your beach towel, sunscreen, and a good book, and head to the beach to relax, soak up the sun, and enjoy some of the little pleasures life has to offer.

4. Get Active

There are so many fun activities at Palmetto Dunes that keep you active while still allowing you to enjoy and explore a new place! Whether it’s biking across the island, taking part in water sports like kayaking and water skiing, taking a swing at golf, or even a nice stroll along the beach at sunset, there’s something for everyone. So get out there, release some endorphins, and experience your vacation through a more active mindset!

5. Spend Time with Loved Ones

Whether you’re traveling with friends, family, or a significant other, there’s no better time to catch up and enjoy time with a loved one than while on vacation. Whether it’s taking part in all of the family-oriented activities Palmetto Dunes has to offer, or going out for a relaxing, romantic dinner, make sure to make time for loved ones and enjoy the company they have to offer in the upcoming New Year.

6. Take Risks

Do something risky and outside of your comfort zone. Everyone has different boundaries, so choose something that feels a bit daring to you! Some options could include a speedy CraigCat boating adventure or shark fishing.

7. Create & Document Your Memories

When we’re living in the moment and enjoying ourselves, we sometimes don’t stop to think about all the wonderful memories we’re creating. Document your family’s vacation by taking lots of photos, or perhaps even jotting things down in a travel journal. These will then become memories you can share with others that will last a lifetime!

What are some of your New Year’s resolutions? Regardless of your goals, we can’t wait to welcome you to Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort for a memorable Hilton Head Island vacation!
