Best Winter Holiday Destinations

Enjoy the Mild Weather  

We’ll admit it — we don’t know what real cold is. That’s what most of our guests from up north say when they see us shivering in mid-50-degree weather. Our low tolerance makes sense when you consider that temperatures usually only drop to the mid-40s, even in the coldest winter months. So be sure to leave your heavy winter coat behind, because a light sweater will be more comfortable!  

Celebrate the Season with Festive Events 

Of course, you can always experience holiday cheer at Fripp’s festive celebrations. Whether you’d like to venture through a holiday wonderland of twinkling lights with the kids or try your skills at a Christmas-themed golf tournament, there’s an event for you. 

These are some of the best winter holiday celebrations on Fripp Island: 

  • Thanksgiving Dinner at the Beach Club 
  • Breakfast with Santa 
  • Reindeer Run 5K 
  • Annual Santa Scramble Golf Tournament 
  • New Year’s Eve Dinner 
  • New Year’s Day Brunch
