Can–Am days means spring is here.
Along with many area businesses and residents we wish to extend a heartfelt Southern welcome to our friendly visitors that have been arriving from Canada on their spring break this week.
To many area residents Can-Am Days is a few fleeting days that are over before we know it. Although events are centered in Horry County, many Canadian visitors venture South to explore the Murrells Inlet, Pawleys Island and Georgetown. Area businesses frequently welcome them with open arms and fly the Canadian flag to invite them in.
We have all heard it said that March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb, but in our neck of the woods March also brings a sweeping wave from the North of warm hearted, friendly Canadians on spring break. They seek sun, sand, shopping, great food and golf. They are among the first of the weekly migrations of visitors that is so important to our region’s economy.
This has been an especially tough Winter here, and also across all of North America. While it’s probably safe to say that Canadians would not be too troubled by weather we consider harsh, we hope it is especially nice for our Northern visitors to enjoy.
We thank our Canadian visitors for choosing our area for their holiday destination and the economic boost it brings. We also look forward to enjoying the start of the warmer weather just as much as our visitors do.
