Rotary Club Chili Cook-Off on St. Simons Island

Many of our friends from the north, including several travelers from Canada, travel to Real Escapes Properties on St. Simons Island to get away from the cold winter blues. There’s nothing quite like a delicious fresh bowl of chili to warm your heart during this time of the year. Lucky for you, the annual Red Hot Rotary Chili Cookoff is just around the corner and is one of the largest St. Simons Island activities! Since it’s a popular time of the year for snowbirds to join us on their annual winter vacations, you’ll want to secure your spot and book your stay early to ensure you’re able to join us for the biggest (and most delicious) event in spring!
