Can you believe it is already the end of April! In a few weeks schools and colleges will be getting out for the summer. In the Lowcountry, with the end of spring and the warmer temperatures of early summer, visitors and residents alike start spending more time outdoors, especially around and on the water. Another benefit of the warm weather is the decline of the pesky “no-see-ums” or biting midges. If you live or have visited the Charleston area during the March/April or October/November time periods, and spent any time outdoors around a marsh, then you know what I am writing about. While most would agree Spring in Charleston is special, it is the late Spring months that bring out all Charleston has to offer.

This past weekend Boone Hall hosted the annual Lowcountry Strawberry Festival. While the weather was not the best, the atmosphere, entertainment and fun were not hampered. As usual, kids of all ages entered with excitement, wonder and anticipation and left tired, happy and a little muddy. If over the weekend you were thinking toys for "grown ups", then you probably spent some time at Brittlebank Park and Bristol Marina for the Charleston In-Water Boat Show. Not only a good place to purchase a new boat, if you are like me, it is a great place to dream about being the captain of your own luxury ship. 

There is always plenty to do in the Lowcountry. The Charleston Stage at the famous Dock Street Theatre is presenting the last week for the local rendition of “Catch Me If You Can”. By the way, the real life main character Frank Abagnale is a Charleston resident. In Mount Pleasant, on Sunday April 26th there is the Blessing of the Fleet and Seafood Festival held at the Memorial Waterfront Park. This annual event features a boat parade, ceremonial blessing of the shrimp/fishing fleet and as the name suggests plenty seafood delights for purchase.

Whether Spring, Summer or the rest of the months, Charleston and the surrounding areas offer so much to residents and visitors to do and see.  When, where and how much to do and see is always left up to you.
