The beginning of April is a slower, more peaceful period and an ideal retreat for visitors needing a quiet sanctuary before the island activity picks up. Indulge in off-season activities and fully experience the shift from winter’s lull to summer’s excitement!  Whether you want to view the eccentric appeal of the gingerbread houses or the tranquility of the Polly Hill Arboretum, you can bask in the beauty of nature to welcome the spring.
