We're looking at coming down this August...although the more I read this message board the less I think I can wait that long!! What's it like in AC in August? We will be celebrating our 20th anniversary as well as my wife's (ahem!) 40th birthday! What will the weather be like? Does anything shut down during the off-season? We may be over 40, but we still like to get out and shake a leg! Here in Colorado, off-season means great hotel rates, but most of the restaurants and shops in resort towns shut down. What can we expect? I want to make this a really special occasion...ya think I can get Barefoot Skinny to sing happy birthday to my wife??

August is not that bad at all. It is a bit hotter but not bad. We have been down there many times in August and have not ever had any bad weather, an occasional rain shower but nothing major. I do not think anything is closed at that time of the year either. Have a great time!

Diann, that sounds like a kick! I'm not familiar with the restaurant you mentioned. We're kind of partial to seafood (isn't it great being landlocked?!)...are you familiar with Jax in Lodo?

Sounds great, BC! That's a bit of a drive from where you are, but sounds like a blast. We'll try and land someplace convenient for all. Diann, what do you think?? Is Lodo convenient enough for all?

sorry, i hate to be the "downer", i was there last august, the 16th - 23rd. it was sunny nearly everyday, with a few showers. it was hot, and i mean hot. and very humid. had to wear my hair tied back tight day & night (frizzball!). most days there was a great breeze. then there were the bugs...they were...well...proliferative. yeah, proliferative. this was particular to windless days. now, i was north of the cut, where they are worse than in town, and i was told it was a bad year, worse than usual. the mosquitoes were feirce and the flies were all over our food. again, i understand it was an anomoly. otherwise, i had a super trip! (bring lotsa bug spray, it is $$$ there. we used 7 cans in a week, but shared it too.)oh, most every place was open tho. one place only closed for lunch. again, everthing else was great.
