Fall in Love With Pawleys Island this Fall!

I am going to begin this post by being completely biased. I LOVE summer. I love the sun rays, the never ending days, boiled peanuts- all of it. Summer will forever be my favorite season. But fall on Pawleys Island is pretty great and has a special piece of my heart also.

If you vacation on the Island in the summer, I invite you to visit in the fall as well. Pawleys Island transforms through the passage of seasons. As many visitors have packed up and returned home, the Island converts into a quiet solitude of cool nights, starry skies and bonfires on the beach.

Check out my top 5 reasons to visit the beach in the fall:

  1. No Traffic

While the summer traffic can cause minor delays which is frustrating at times, we all agree it is worth it once your toes are in the sand. However, that is one thing that i love about fall- no traffic! That means plenty of room to jog on the causeways, fish from the surf and peacefully stroll the beach.

2. Fall Memories

While the summer memories consist of splashin’ in the ocean and embracing warm sun on your skin, the fall vacation memories have a different feel.  For the seafood lovers, it is Oyster Season! Grab a bushel at the local seafood market and enjoy a oyster roast. A favorite activity of mine is having a bonfire on the beach, s’mores and stargazing. Bonfire permits are given out at Town Hall. In my family, we play a nice, calm(yeah right) game of flag football on the beach; creating lasting memories, several bruises and in one unfortunate situation- a broken finger.

3. Save on Price, not Quality

The prices of these homes are at the lowest point in the fall. Enjoy a five star vacation rental for a fraction of the summer price. Saving money and visiting the most beautiful Island, win-win!

4. Activities in the Area

Pawleys Island has awesome fall activities! Brew at the Zoo is held at Brookgreen Gardens. Sip your way through the zoo and visit with all type of animals. Also, Annual Lip-Rippin’ Chilympics Chili Cookoff and Annual Surfriders Oyster Roast and Bloody Mary Contest are fun fall events to attend and participate!

5. Views

As the days grow shorter, the skies at both sunrise and sunset glow with the most spectacular display of colors. Vibrant pinks, fiery reds, passionate oranges and bold purples race across the sky. The light from the sun passes through much more atmosphere before reaching our sight so it comes into contact with many more molecules in the air. Our sunsets will leave you breathless.

Spend some time this fall on Pawleys Island, where memories are created no matter the season!

I’ll see you on the beach!

 

 

 

Here’s to Never Saying Goodbye to Summer

Labor Day came and went, along with the remnants of Summer 2018! The days are beginning to get dark earlier and school has gone back in session. But on Pawleys Island, we never say goodbye to Summer!

Come spend a week or long weekend on Pawleys this fall, where summer never ends. Splash in the cool water, lay under the smiling sun and enjoy the quiet, peaceful beach.

Pawleys Island is a special place where unforgettable moments are made year after year. Whether it be a summer vacation or a quick getaway weekend, the memories made on Pawleys will stay with you for a lifetime.

Let the grand memories created this summer carry you through the colder, less welcoming months. Summer carries a sense of fun, relaxation and a period of slow down. Where time moves slow and told by the tides. The biggest decision is what to cook for dinner.

So here is to Summer! The fun times and sunshine. The laughter and excitement. The longer days spent with family and friends. Here’s to Summer 2018 and here is to all the summers to come.
