We love to take our kids to Fripp island. They love to ride the golf cart and look at deer. The kids pool is perfect for them. There is also an adult pool that is nice. The beaches are pretty and the whole area.

I think some of them are open. I honestly never went to a sit down meal on the island. Only snacks by the pool. Usually if we are eating out we go off island To Beaufort or one of the other islands. Mostly we cooked.
