    We went to the Broadway at the Beach Mall waking from our hotel with no idea of the distance. Fortunately, there were taxis at the entrance to go back to the hotel.

    The mall is really huge with shops, theatres, restaurants. 350 acres with large ponds.

    Tropical Fish

    There are hourly dive shows. All kinds of huge sharks, fish, and eels. There is a 330 foot underwater tunnel you travel through that is really cool. Lots of hands on for the kids. WE got to pet stingrays, sharks, and crabs.

    huntington beach

    huntington beach state park is located about ten miles south of myrtle beach at murrell's inlet south carolina. the state park has a beautiful three mile beach, a salt marsh ecosystem, and the historic atalaya home. the park offers swimming, fishing, nature trails, and birdwatching. in my opinion huntington beach is the nicest beach in the myrtle beach area. for more information see the attached web site.

    atalaya

    atalaya castle is located at huntington state park near murrell's inlet south carolina. this 30 room mansion was built by archer m. huntington in 1931. archer huntington was a noted scholar of spanish culture and art and his wife ana hyatt was a famous american sculptor. the architectue of the mansion is moorish inspired but to me it's looks more like a prison. this interesting home is open for tours. atalaya castle is listed on the national register of historic places.

    murell's inlet is a very worth while place to visit in the myrtle beach area. murrell's inlet is home to huntington beach state park and a number of excellent restaurants and bars. for dining i personally think that murrell's inlet has the best collection of restaurants in the myrtle beach area.

  • The Carolina Opry & Good Vibrations

    by dande9 Updated Feb 23, 2007

    Good Vibrations Pic

    These two shows produced by Calvin Gilmore are brilliant and wildly entertaining. If you only see one show while you're in Myrtle Beach, it must be the show that brought entertainment to Myrtle Beach - The Carolina Opry. From the moment you enter the stunning two-story marble lobby, you know you are in for an extraordinary experience that your family will remember long after the tans have faded and the sand has been shaken from the shoes.
    During Good Vibrations you'll see the best music, comedy and dancing of three of the most dynamic decades in history, 1960-1990. Elvis, John Denver, Pat Benatar, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, Billy Joel, Don McClean, The Beach Boys, and Cyndi Lauper – just to name a few. You’ll laugh out-loud, you’ll stomp your feet, you’ll sing your favorite songs. The Christmas Special during November and December is always a sellout too. Loved by all generations, my family has been coming for years and it is loved by all.
