Holiday Inn Resort has something for every member of the family, all within steps of your room. Kids will love the aquatic-themed suites outfitted with bunks, beanbags, and gaming consoles. There’s even a dedicated game room full of arcade favorites. The resort’s famous backyard features a seasonally heated, 250-foot lazy river with cascading waterfall. Mermaids and pirates are known to show up unannounced, so be sure to keep a lookout for these special visitors. While you wait, feel free to pull up a stool at the bar where you’ll find some of the best beachy cocktails, great service, and super chill atmosphere. As the sun begins to set, gather around for a poolside movie under the stars!
Staying true to its fun-loving spirit, Riptide’s Grill and Tiki Bar serves up American comfort food and friendly service. You’ll find dishes the whole family can agree on and over-sized screens broadcasting your favorite teams. Even better, kids under 12 eat free. When you’re ready for more sunshine and salty air, stroll over to the poolside tiki bar out back.
