May in Washington

You MAY want to visit this month!
April typically kicks off our event season, and May is when we’re full steam ahead. This month is a great time to visit Washington and the Inner Banks area. Perhaps check out a quaint bed and breakfast like the Pamlico House or Elmwood 1820 in Washington’s historic district. Treat mom to a cruise on the Jeanie B, shopping spree in downtown Washington, or a painting class at Wine & Design. May is also a month to celebrate graduations. Plan a special dinner or fun night out with friends. Whatever you choose to celebrate in May, make Washington a special part of your memories.
