What Makes Hilton Head Island Unique for Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend marks the official start to the summer.  So what is it about Hilton Head Island that just beckons people to use the long weekend to come here?  Maybe it’s the twelve miles of breathtaking beaches or the perfect temperatures or the relaxed atmosphere.  Maybe it’s the natural beauty or myriad of outdoor things to do like bike riding on the beach, or walking on the many trails that calls out to people to visit us here.

The three day Memorial weekend here in Hilton Head Island means different things to different people, but there’s no mistaking that this area is unique and full of things to do to enjoy your time.

In addition to the barbeques, friendly gatherings, and pool parties, Memorial Day is a time to reflect on and honor the veterans of war who fought to make the way we live today a reality.  The sacrifices they made will be commemorated with activities such as parades, fireworks, and memorial services throughout Hilton Head Island and nearby areas.

On Monday, May 28, 2012, the annual Memorial Day observance will be presented by the Hilton Head Navy League.  It starts at 10:30am at the Veterans Memorial Park in Shelter Cove, located behind the mall.  Come and honor those that gave their lives for our great nation.  The address will be give by Colonel Robert Jones, Commanding Officer Recruit Training Regiment, Parris Island.  For more information, please call 843-682-3551.
