11/10/2009 Lowcountry Coastal Island of Edisto Offers Variety of Events for Every Season

Edisto Island, S.C. – While perhaps best known as a summer refuge, both Edisto Island and Edisto Beach, with their scenic vistas, slower pace of life and temperate climate, have become a haven for residents and visitors throughout the year.  For those looking to fully experience the Edisto way of life, a wide variety of events awaits history buffs, environmentalists and nature lovers, arts enthusiasts, families, and those in search of the simpler life of days gone by. Set amidst the scenic live oak canopy along Highway 174, recently designated as a National Scenic Byway, or along the beachfront, the 2010 Edisto Island calendar of events offers something for everyone, any season of the year.


Set in a rare, sparsely-developed corner of the world, Edisto, with its vast green spaces, ancient live oaks, wide open marsh views, and quiet, pristine beach, offers a coastal island experience uncommon today among Eastern seaboard communities. Visitors and residents alike enjoy a slower pace of life coupled with a broad range of year-round recreational activities, all set in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. This is the coastal island destination that is said to offer its own “state of mind…any time, any season.” For more information, please call the Edisto Chamber of Commerce at 843-869-3867 or 1-888-333-2781 or visit www.edistochamber.com.
