Myrtle Beach is one of those cities where you cannot come for a visit without going to a few popular locations.
Soak up the sun. Take a morning or afternoon, pack your beach bag and head out to one of Myrtle Beach’s beautiful sandy beaches off of Ocean Boulevard. As a native of the area, I never get tired of the beach and I always look forward to the warm weather and the cool breeze; perfect weather for a day at the beach.
Gather your clubs. If you’re a golfer, Myrtle Beach is the perfect place to find a great spot to golf at one of the hundred’s of courses available. Although I am not a golfer myself, I have been to several golf courses with friends who visit primarily to enjoy golfing in the area.

Fulfill you appetite. Visit a few restaurants around the beach, particularly seafood restaurants- Myrtle Beach’s specialty. My favorites are Bennet’s Calabash Seafood (North Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach), Captain George’s Seafood (29th Avenue, Myrtle Beach) and Original Benjamin’s Calabash Seafood (North Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach). I usually go for the buffet, which ranges from $15 to $30, which is well worth it if you are a seafood lover.
Check out the nightlife. If you want a night out on the town, Myrtle Beach has a variety of nice places to visit. I usually enjoy going to Broadway at the Beach, which not only has a variety of shops, restaurants, rides, putt putt golf, a movie theater and aquarium, but also several bars and nightclubs.
For me, Senior Frogs is a great spot. A restaurant during the day, and club by night, that plays different styles of music including R&B, Pop, Reggae and Rap. If you enjoy piano, jazz and blues music, Crocodile Rocks is the perfect spot for you. For those of you who enjoy karaoke, Broadway Louie’s Grill gives you the opportunity to sing your favorite songs.
Broadway at the Beach also includes Club Boca, Froggy Bottomz, Malibu’s, Shucker’s Raw Bar, Revolutions, Stool Pigeons, Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, Fat Tuesday and Blarney Stone’s Pub & Cigar Bar,

Visit the beach’s new addition, Hard Rock Park. Although Hard Rock Park doesn’t open until Spring of this year, I have constantly heard ranting and raving about this rock-n-roll theme park for months. Located off of Highway 501 in Myrtle Beach, this park will include a live music amphitheater, rides, restaurants, cafes and retail stores. I don’t have first hand experience to share about this park; however, I believe that it will be nothing but a positive addition to the beach.
No matter what you have in mind, there are plenty of things to do in the area to make your Myrtle Beach vacation one to remember!
