Best Family Getaways: Cloister at Sea Island

The Annual Destination

Some places are so special that returning to them year after year becomes a cherished family tradition. For the Holleys of Washington, D.C., it’s the Cloister at Sea Island ($$$), off the coast of Georgia. Eight-year-old Pierce reunites with his friends at Camp Cloister, the resort’s kids’ club, where activities include scouting for turtle tracks and hatchlings along the beach. Six-year-old Palmer raves about the Wonderland milk shakes from the old-fashioned soda fountain. “And we always watch the Fourth of July parade and fireworks,” Pierce says. “It doesn’t get any better than that.” —Lindsey Olander
