Hilton Head is so much fun in the Spring. There are a lot of special things happening. Here are just a few you should not miss if you are coming to Hilton Head:
One of my favorite places, The Art Center of Coastal Carolina at Shelter Cove, has some great performances this Spring. Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash starts February 10 – March 1. From the songbook of Johnny Cash comes this unique musical about love and faith, home and family, struggle and success and rowdiness and redemption. More than two dozen classic hits – including “I Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and the title tune paint a musical portrait of The Man in Black.
Another very special evening at The Art Center will take place March 7th for one evening only. Two time Grammy Award winning pianist, Peter Nero will leads his unrivaled pops orchestra blending classical, swing, Broadway, blues and jazz — all performed with virtuosity, authenticity and engaging sense of humor. For more information on either of these shows and to purchase tickets, go to www.artshhi.com.
If you are looking for a new place for dinner before or after the theatre, check out the newly opened Poseidon Restaurant and Roof Top Bar. The newest addition to Shelter Cove, it offers a wonderful menu and magnificent views of Broad Creek. Their website is www.poseidonhhi.com. Be sure to call for reservations; they are the most popular spot in town!
Don’t forget Valentine’s Day on February 14. If you want to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a really different way, how about taking the Alligator Wine & Cheese Cruise! I didn’t even know there was such a thing until just recently. You and your “honey” can enjoy a sunset cruise on the freshwater lakes of the Sea Pines Forest Preserve and discover indigenous plants and animals while enjoying complimentary wine and cheese. How many people can say they spent Valentine’s Day with some alligators! Reservations are required (adults only), and may be made by calling The Nature Center at (843) 686-5323.
