This year Easter Sunday arrives on March 27, 2016. How do you plan to celebrate Easter this year? If you haven’t given it much thought it’s a good time to do so. We turn the clocks forward one hour this weekend and that’s a sure sign that spring is moving right along, ready or not. Brunswickland Realty has plenty of Holden Beach properties that have Easter availability but just like the Easter candy — these won’t last forever!
Our favorite place to spend Easter is right here at Holden Beach on the Southern Brunswick Islands of North Carolina. It’s peaceful, the weather is temperate this time of year, and it’s just an overall great place to get away to. If you’ve never visited our beautiful Holden Beach it’s time to treat yourself and Easter is a lovely time to do just that.
