April is a great month to be in Charleston. The city and surrounding areas are in full bloom, the nights are longer, and the weather here is just perfect. Whether you're getting the boat up and running, doing some spring cleaning in the house, or doing yard work- the temperature here seems to be just about right.
Meanwhile, in between those ambitious projects, there's plenty to enjoy around town:
- Festival of Houses and Gardens, downtown Charleston - Festival tours feature the interiors and gardens of approximately 150 historic private houses in 10 colonial and antebellum neighborhoods during the peak of the city's blooming season. Tickets to the house and garden tours are $45 and can be ordered by calling (843) 723-1623.
- The 2010 Family Circle Cup will be held at the Family Circle Tennis Center located on Daniel Island, April 10 to 18. (800) 677-2293.
- Anything as popular as grits deserves its own annual festival. So come on out to St. George for the World Grits Festival and get your fill, April 11 to 13. Visit http://www.worldgritsfestival.com/ for further information.
- Celebrate the "Blessing of the Fleet" and Seafood Festival in Mt. Pleasant on April 25th from 11:30am to 4:30pm. **It will be relocated this year to the brand-new Memorial Waterfront Park at the foot of the Arthur Ravenel Bridge (843) 849-2061.
