The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island holds various holiday events for guests, our favorite being the Easter egg hunt. The staff hides 4,000 Easter eggs on and surrounding the huge back Grand Lawn, which was designed to look like an English garden. At Christmas time, several events take place, including a visit from St. Nick. Festivals and celebrations for the Fourth of July, Labor Day and other holidays throughout the year offer fun for the whole family. Whether it's fireworks, parades or taking part in kayaking and boating tours, you will have a way to celebrate the holidays at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel.
