Real Estate – Murphy NC – Events and Festivals In and Around The Area Of Murphy NC

Lake Hiwassee

Its been another wonderful week with all the activities, events, festivals, and concerts in the area that were occuring last weekend. As for me I traveled to South Carolina to visit with Family and the best way to beat the heat there was to visit the Water Park in Myrtle Beach. The heat and humidity are almost unbearable in SC. I could feel the difference as soon as I passed thru the Nantahala Forest on my way back to Murphy last Sunday. August is fastly passing us by, so get out there and enjoy the warm weather, low humidity, while you can. Make memories this weekend and enjoy some of the events we are highlighting this week.

Enjoy The Rest Of The Week And Have A Great Weekend From All Of Us At Exit Realty Mountain View Properties.
