Top Things to Do on Your Winter/Early Spring Vacation in 2020

Experience Pawleys Island in the off-season! The crowds are gone, the temperatures are mild and the off-season rates can't be beat. Reserve your vacation for a week, a month, or book a long weekend in one of our beautiful homes or condominiums. Make Pawleys Island a vacation tradition in the months of January, February, March, and April. We have oceanfront and off ocean properties, and Pet-Friendly homes are available, too! The off-season at Pawleys Island is beautiful, and a perfect place to unwind and relax with a view of the ocean and a walk down the beach.

This is our favorite time of year for many reasons, one of which is Oyster Season. A true coastal delicacy is an oyster roast! Steamed to perfection, the shells slightly cracked open, and served with melted butter, cocktail sauce and saltine crackers. You'll find many restaurants that serve local oysters. Don't miss out on these very special gifts from the coastal waters of South Carolina.

Another favorite reason to visit during this early season is fantastic golf courses. Be sure to play one of the local award-winning courses in Pawleys Island. You can literally play a different golf course every single day of your vacation. Try different challenges including saltwater creeks, tidal rivers, cypress swamps, and dense natural oak trees created by famous designers like Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and William Byrd.

For activities to suit all ages, the 2020 Events Calendar is filling up with historic and wildlife tours, concerts, festivals and educational events that shouldn't be missed. They make a perfect excuse to plan on being at the beach!


January begins with the Taste of the MarshWalk. Eight award-winning restaurants will present their chef's favorites, including the freshest seafood as well as land lover dishes. Enjoy live music, kid's activities, local artisans, crafters, and small dish tastings of the area's best restaurants! Also in January, the Lee Minton Signature Series of the Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Arts features a performance by Jazz Singer Alexis Cole, accompanied by jazz pianist, arranger and producer, John di Martino.


February events include Brookgreen Gardens Winter Teas in the Magnolia Cafe. Serving hot teas and sweet and savory treats on Saturdays and Sundays. Another fun event will be an oyster roast at Hobcaw Barony. You'll not only enjoy the freshest local oysters possible, but also learn the proper way to pick oysters and cook them.


March brings in special events at Brookgreen Gardens and activities for kids. Celebrate "A Seussical Day to Read and Play” on Saturday, March 7, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., at the Wall Lowcountry Center.


April is the time for one of our most popular events - The 73rd Annual Plantation Tours. Every spring, the Women of Prince George Parish host the Prince George Plantation and Town House Tours. Visitors are able to go inside most of the elegant dwellings on tour and many are on the National Register of Historic Places. Begin the day's tour at Prince George Church Parish Hall, where visitors can pick up tickets, maps, brochures and bag lunches.

Brookgreen begins their special summer event on April 8. This year's exhibit is especially exciting as they present internationally known artist, Bruce Munro's Southern Light. This exhibit will feature seven works of art in light and mixed media, each designed specifically for the natural garden rooms where they will be installed. The illuminated installations will consist of tens of thousands of components. This will be the only chance to experience Bruce's incomparable installations in the Eastern United States in 2020.

April 12 - Experience a Sunrise Service on the beach for Easter 2020. Services are at two locations, Litchfield by the Sea Oceanfront Clubhouse and The Litchfield Inn.
