Our kids are still talking about the great time they had exploring the island during last year’s scavenger hunt. From delivering doughnuts and taking a photo with our local fireman, to a group swim in the surf, we discovered places and met families that were new to us even though we’ve lived on the island for over 10 years. We came away with stories, island trivia, and good laughs that we will never forget. We are so excited to see what this year’s event has in store!

My family LOVED last year’s Flip Flop Family Scavenger Hunt! We had a blast touring around the island in search of different items, and learned some things too! It was such a creative event, my husband and I enjoyed it as much as our 5 and 11 year old kids! We were very surprised, and honored, to be the 7th team to check into Bailey’s, find the right person, and win a very special prize donated by Lily & Company Jewelers!! Our only regret was not having more friends join our team! It was definitely a memory that will last a lifetime!
