Reasons to Visit Pawleys Island in the Spring

Pawleys Island is beautiful during any time of the year, but there’s just something extra magical about the

spring. Spring in Pawleys Island brings warmer weather, lush foliage, higher water temperatures, and more visitors.

Thinking about visiting Pawleys Island in the spring? Here’s a list of reasons why to visit Pawleys Island in the springtime:

Weather

While Pawleys Island tends to experience a mild winter, the springtime brings even warmer temperatures. The average air temperatures for the spring months are as follows:

  • March: 56°F
  • April: 63°F
  • May: 71°F
  • June: 79°F

Scenery

Along with warmer temperatures, the spring brings greener surroundings and blooming flowers. This is a great time to hang out at the beach as well as visit places like Huntington Beach State Park, Brookgreen Gardens, Hobcaw Barony, These attractions present visitors with beautiful natural surroundings such as marshes, rice fields, animals, beaches, gardens, and more!

Shopping

Of course, one of the main attractions in Pawleys Island is the famous Hammock Shops Village. Visitors will enjoy perusing the specialty shops here, as well as checking out and testing out a true original Pawleys Island rope hammock. Those shopping at the Hammock Shops will also love the natural setting, complete with oaks and azaleas. There are also dining options here, so if you get hungry after shopping all day, try out a delicious restaurant like bisQit, Pawleys Prime, Cerra Sushi, and more.

Outdoor Activities

Because Pawleys Island sees warmer temperatures in the spring, that makes it a great time to participate in some outdoor activities. While visiting Pawleys Island in the spring, be sure to check out some of the following activities in addition to visiting Brookgreen Gardens, Hobcaw Barony, the beach, and Huntington Beach State Park:

  • Black Rivers Outdoor Center: Black River Outdoors Center provides guided kayak tours in the Pawleys Island area. These kayak tours are guided through marshes, swamps, creeks, and rivers. In addition, Black Rivers Outdoor Center also provides eco-tours that are guided by experienced naturalists.

  • Fishing Charters: Relax and spend the day fishing with a fishing charter in Pawleys Island. The following fishing charters can help you find the perfect spot where the fish are biting:

Top Five Reasons to Visit the Grand Strand During the Holidays

 

 

 

Our Top Five Reasons to Visit Myrtle Beach for the Holidays

 

One thing those of us who work in hospitality along the Grand Strand  love is getting to know repeat visitors. We get to see families return year after year, get to watch kids grow up … and Christmas is no exception! Many families make an annual holiday tradition out of their trip to beaches of South Carolina (specifically, Pawleys Island). Here are the reasons they tell us they prefer to visit the beach in the winter:

 

1. Forget about crowds.
Those noisy summer crowds aren’t a concern when you come to visit Pawleys Island in the winter.

 

2. The weather.
You won’t find the almost tropical heat southern summers are known for when you visit the Grand Strand in the fall and winter, but you also won’t get as much rain. In fact, November is much drier than August here in Pawleys Island, and December’s even less wet! So as long as you’re not afraid to dress in layers, you can enjoy clear skies and long walks on the beach.

 

3. We’ve got great Christmas shows.
Carolina Opry and Alabama Theatre in particular offer up annual Christmas shows that people come back for year after year after year. Something’s always a little different, but you can see your favorite performers mature and grow in their careers. And with the amazing holiday decoration displays at these theaters, you will absolutely feel the Christmas spirit move you!

 

4. Less family stress.
Look, we know you love that aunt or grandma or sister-in-law who also happens to drive you crazy every year at Christmas. But you can still send her holiday cheer via a Skype call on Christmas morning from the comfort of your quiet and serene Pawleys Island vacation rental.

 

5. Awesome shopping.
If you go on vacation along the Grand Strand for the holidays, you can get your own shopping done, whether you’re shopping for others or for yourselves. Shoppers cite the Tanger Outlets on Hwy. 501 and Hwy. 17 as well as the trendy Market Common. And if you’re looking for some Christmas cheer in your shopping, be sure to check out the annual Myrtle Beach Dickens Christmas Show Nov. 14-17, 2013.

Plantation Tours in Georgetown, SC

On March 22 &23, 2013 , just south of Pawleys Island, some of the most beautiful, historic plantation homes and churches in the Georgetown, South Carolina area will be graciously shared with the Episcopal Church Women of Prince George, Winyah Parish, and will be open for ticket holders between 9:30am– 5pm.

The Sixty-Sixth Annual Plantation Tour offers a different group of pre-Revolutionary and antebellum  homes in downtown Georgetown, on area plantations and even some churches each day. Visitors are invited to the Winyah Indigo Society Hall for tea each afternoon. In the Prince George Parish Hall, home baked goods, original framed art from local artists, books from the Georgetown Historical Society, and the church’s award winning cookbook, PLANTATION TOURS AND TASTES, will be available for sale.

Histories and maps showing the routes for the day are provided with tickets.  Hosts and hostess will be on hand to answer questions concerning the houses that are open. Visitors provide their own transportation.  Only cars and vans are allowed on the tours because of the many low-hanging oak limbs and soft roadbeds.  (no buses)

All Visitors are requested to wear low heeled shoes for their own comfort, as well, as for the protection of the old floors and rugs. You are also reminded that no photographs may be taken inside homes.

For ticket information, visit the website: http://www.pgwinyah.org/
