With the end of August just around the corner, the summer is officially coming to an end! But that doesn’t mean the beautiful weather, fun outdoor events and laid-back Coastal Carolina vibes are disappearing along with it. North Carolina’s Crystal Coast is lucky to experience excellent temperatures and sunshine well past summer’s official close and must-visit events in Beaufort, Emerald Isle, Atlantic Beach, Morehead City, Havelock, Newport and the surrounding communities will continue throughout the year!
As your local real estate experts, Gena Gilbert Real Estate is happy to include just a few of these events taking place this month, so you can send summer off with a bang!
