There is always SO MUCH happening around the Lowcountry that my social calendar is constantly packed! With all of these wonderful events, it’s hard to ever be bored here. Spring is the BEST time of year with the azaleas in bloom and warm temps which gives us the excuse to sneak in beach days before all of the tourists arrive for the summer season. This year, our favorite event, the RBC Heritage golf tournament, will wrap up on Easter Sunday….which means that week will be non-stop FUN on the island.
Be sure to mark your calendars this Spring for the following FABULOUS events!
Hilton Head Chamber FASHION WEEK- March 31- April 8, 2017
