Winter didn’t forget about Pawleys Island this year, unfortunately. As you might have seen on the news, we had snow! Which is so unheard of on our little island. In fact, I discovered a few things about snow. It is pretty, it is wet and it is coldddd! Also, it has been determined that snow is best viewed from indoors, wrapped in our snuggly blankets, fuzzy socks and enjoying hot chocolate.
I came to the unsurprising realization that I am in fact, a beach bum and prefer to stick my toes in the sand instead of leaving footprints in the snow. Thankfully, spring is on the way. A beautiful array flowers will emerge, the friendly sun will beat down in warm welcoming rays, saying “oh, there you are. I’ve been looking for you”. Spring is a time when we run outside without shoes, sprawl in Adirondack chairs and forget the cold weather ever stopped by to visit.
There are many events in the Pawleys community during the spring time that are sure to strike your fancy. The Myrtle Beach Marathon, Easter activities, and Earth Day Festival are just a few events to be mentioned. And we can’t forget…. You say Spring, I’ll say Break! Spring- Break! Spring- Break!
We have a variety of nightly and weekly rentals for your spring break get away. Ranging in amenities, bedrooms, location and availability, just call our office to begin the search for your perfect get away. Spring Break availability is plentiful and we look forward to having you and your family spend school-free days lounging on the beach.
The Myrtle Beach Marathon comes to town (well, close to town) March 1st-3rd. This event includes a marathon, half marathon, 5K and family fun run. Good for everyone that enjoys running. Or exercising. Or drinking beer afterwards.
Easter is on Sunday, April 1st this year, so get ready for the Easter Egg hunt at the Hammock Shops! Always a fun affair for the kids and parents alike. Parents can sneak over to BisQit and view the egg-citing egg hunt while enjoying a spiked shake, veggie frites, or a specialty cocktail. You won’t need to hunt for those special treats. I also recommend the Sunrise Service for the early risers. People gather on the south end of Pawleys Island at sunrise on Easter Morning to hear a special message as the sun rises over the ocean. While beautiful and inspirational, it also tends to be a tad bit chilly- bring your own chairs, beach towels or blankets. Then, go home and feast on a wonderful Easter Breakfast!
Earth Day is April 22nd and what better way to celebrate than a festival at Brookgreen Gardens on Saturday, April 21st! Brookgreen has it all! The gardens host demonstrations, plant sales, nature stations, crafts for all, area tours and animals.

Although there are many activities and events to find around our area this spring, don’t forget about the pleasure to be found walking out of your front door. If the water is too cold for your taste, have a sand castle competition! Search for Pawleys Shells! The one who finds the least sharks teeth has to jump in the ocean. We are thrilled to share our beautiful island with you during the spring time when the island is slowly waking up from a heavy winter slumber preparing to welcome our summer visitors!
Call our office with questions about booking- 843-237-2000. We look forward to seeing you and your family at the beach!
