Drinkin Henny and I'm tryna forget

Will my 9 and 6 year old be super bored? Will i be super bored? Thinking about flying down for a long weekend in early August.
Actually Allegiant is very good at what they do. They are great for nonstop flights between secondary markets/airports. The planes (A319/320s) are clean. I haven't had any major issues.Thursday afternoon/evening - pool, walk, dinner. Friday - sight see, pool. Saturday - beach (Tybee Island). Sunday morning fly home. Can take Allegiant (yuck) direct for like $90 round trip.
Best Kid-Friendly Things to Do in Hilton Head, South Carolina | Atlanta Parent MagazineWhat's the problem with Tybee? What's the allure of Hilton Head? Legit asking. Hilton Head will run the cost of this up exponentially, though I could do a night there using a free night certificate from Marriott. Then pay the other two (which will be like $800 min).
We have a "beach trip" to Ocean City (Tuttle's suggestion) planned for the end of August. This is just a quick getaway. I dig the Southern Gothic stuff and kind of see this trip as New Orleans light.
Edit: Actually, the Marriotts on Hilton Head won't accept points that weekend so no certificate redemption available.
Edit 2: Could I day trip to Hilton Head instead of Tybee?
You get used to it. I was born and raised in NY. First year in Atlanta I was dying from April-Sept.Yeah we walked around Charleston last July, and I kept thinking to myself "this would be the most perfect place on Earth... if I could breathe."
Hope you found a place in HH to stay. It’s prime season there right nowSo here is the plan at this point (which i've modified based on some suggestions here).
Fly down Thursday and do touristy stuff in Savannah that afternoon/evening. Find a way to get to Hilton Head on Friday and Saturday. Fly home Sunday morning.
That's not a lot of time, but the tickets are $90 round trip, so we can always go back again if we dig it. I know the boys will dig Hilton Head (they'd probably dig Tybee too). Frankly, they'd be cool with Onondaga Lake if there were a few little waves and some sandy area. They just love the ocean.
