Happy Independence Day! 

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. 

I have been thinking about some outdoor places I can enjoy this weekend and over the summer. I thought I'd share a few  that made my list.

Brookgreen Gardens:

Brookgreen Gardens has always been one of my favorite places. We typically visit the gardens at least once a year and Night of a Thousand Candles has become an annual family tradition.  Though that's not until December, there are summer events that are held in addition to regular admission to the gardens. One thing I am very excited to go see is Bruce Munro at Brookgreen: Southern Light.   Large scale light exhibits by artist Bruce Munro can be viewed in the gardens each Saturday from 8PM-11PM.  Here's the  ticket information, updates, and some FAQs.


Alligator Adventure:

I've been here many times and it's always been enjoyable.  You can explore the park at your pace and view all the animals. You can watch live shows where you can learn about the animals or even have your photo taken with them.    When my family visits from out of town, this is one of the places we visit.  Here's some park information to include current hours and ticket prices.

Myrtle Beach State Park: 

Whether you want to camp or just take a day trip, there's so much to see and do at Myrtle Beach State Park.  If you want to plan activities there's fishing, swimming, boating, and outdoor games. You can take advantage of the nature trails, biking trails, or horse riding trails. Or just relax and enjoy the beauty.  Check out activities and information about the park.  (As per their website, fishing rods are not currently for rent.) 


Huntington Beach State Park:

This is another favorite park with so much to offer.  They have some great nature and biking trails, kayaking, and swimming.  Huntington Beach State Park is also home to Atalaya Castle which is a beautiful place to visit. It's also a popular photo spot and wedding venue.  Here's some more activities and information about Huntington Beach State Park. 


I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Remember.. if I can help with any of your real estate needs, even a general question, don't hesitate to contact me!

Happy 4th of July!
