Summer vacation may be a chance to while the days away, but with the increasing popularity of wellness travel, it’s also a way to kick start a healthy lifestyle or stick to your current fitness routine. Whether you’re planning your first visit or are returning to Palmetto Dunes for another summer vacation, there are plenty of ways to stay active and have fun while you’re staying at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort.
