You can feel the excitement in the air, and it’s only going to build all month long. February on Hilton Head Island typically serves as sort of a preamble, a prelude if you will, to the rising temperatures and endless fun that spring brings to this subtropical paradise. For most of us, it’s a 28-day waiting period before the fun really begins.
For Coligny, though, February is going to be a season of celebration unto itself. In addition to all the shopping, dining and entertainment that have made Coligny Hilton Head’s downtown for decades, they’re kicking off the festival season early with a slew of great events that you won’t want to miss.
Spring? Spring can wait. February at Coligny might just end up being the most fun you have all year long.
