North Myrtle Beach Travel Guide
Broadway at the Beach
Shells & hermit crabs
pier... pink sky
It's an amazing area.There are restaurants,bars,shops everything you need for the whole day. The complex is situated over a lake and therefore all the buildings are on platforms and are connected with bridges. I'd love to come back one day
As I'm an orthodox I've never been in a different church till then. There are many different once - catholic,baptists,etc.It was very interesting for me to look around and stay for a while in a completely different interior as I'm used to.
Go to the beach
Well...sure if you're in North Myrtle Beach you'll go to the beach. Probably I'd like to recommend a night walk or early morning one when there are no people. It could be very romantic or just funny if you're with friends. I even tried night swimming but was a little bit...

New China: Buffet
We eventually stopped near Calabash Seafood (which is not in Calabash) at the Chinese place with the 102 piece buffet (It's now 120 pieces). It was $5.25 for all you could eat for seniors. (Regular people pay $1 more) Afterwards we walked back and looked at the waterway...
Carrabba's Italian Grille: Walking Distance from Dock Holidays Marina
This is within walking distance of the marina. It is apparently another chain that I haven't heard about. The website says:"Restaurant Size: 6,300 square feet including dining room and bar area seating approximately 246 guests. Patio areas available. "Interior Design:...
Johnny Rocket's: Macarena-ing staff
We went up to dinner to T-Bonz, and they said we'd have to wait. It was only 5:15 and the place was half empty. We said we didn't want to wait and walked out. Then we went to a crab place - same story - empty restaurant and we'd have to wait. We walked out. We went to Johnny...
Carrabba's Italian Grill: Fantastic Meal!
We went here on our family trip to Myrtle for Spring Break - what a great experience. The place was full and we had reserved (large table of 6 adults and 7 kids) - our table was ready right away. Our waiter Tracey had a great personality, was attentive and funny and made us...
Dick's Last Resort: Just go, for the hat.
Dick's Last Resort is a chain... you know how they go. The waiters throw your forks at you, make fun of you, and give you hats that say just the opposite of what ya really are... they PICK ON YOU!!! It's great fun though. The food isn't the best but the fun is worth it. And,...
Tuna bar: Tuna bar
Tuna bar is just a regular bar but the music is cool and pleasant.There are pooltables ans some other games. The best about this bar is that it is situated on the beach and there is a terrace looking at the sea

Drive if it's under 12 hours
I've never flown into Myrtle, and have never met anyone in my area (Cinci) who has. Half the adventure is packing up yer car with the kids & luggage and GETTING THERE. Friends of mine had a great idea --- stop off in Gatlinburg on your way there, if you are coming in from the Midwest. Anyhoo if you can handle everyone's different pee schedules and the occasional bored kid complaining, or the occasional adult who is suffering stomach sickness... drive, baby. It's a beauty of a view on the way into Myrtle.

Mall: Barefoot Landing
This is an enormous mall setup which has been described as the most expensive free docks on the ICW. With over 100 specialty shops, and 13 factory direct stores to browse through. I have to say though, that the only thing Bob bought was some fudge.
All of it... all the shoppes... oh and FUDGE: Barefoot Landing
Well if you want a pair of shorts, earrings, a personalized rice necklace, fudge (while the dudes sing to you), towels, navel rings, wine glasses, bibles, wax hands, or just to get out and walk? Go here! It's special cuz you can find everything, in an outdoor-type mall...
Putt Putt... fun but there's so many
Well putt putt is a fun pasttime for kids & things but they have way too many putt putt courses. You can get just a tad sick of it.
Unique Suggestions: If you have to go? Adult advice? Try to find one that serves alcohol. At least you can numb the pain a little bit!

SPF to the highest if you're fair skinned
Luggage and bags: Pack lightly, no matter where you go. Expect lots of sand to wind up in the weirdest places when ya visit a beach.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Sarongs, ladies! Cover your shoulders & other spots skin cancer wouldn't look too pretty.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring stuff that helps your tummy while travelling... especially with kids.
Photo Equipment: Digicams, but don't drop them in the sand. Use those freezer-heavy-duty Ziplocs to stow your cameras in while beaching it.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: AN UMBRELLA --- protect yourself & the kids! SPF highest possible and a great book... love the sun yet avoid it...

Watching the city from a roof
This was amazing emotion for all of us. We climbed on a roof of a hotel and spend there hours in just looking at the city and the sea on the other side.I think it is not much legally but the experience worth.
Wheel of Fortune's letter-turner Vanna White owns a big home on the main street near the ocean. The home is beautiful, and the flowers, shrubbery and garden work surrounding it are just as much so. You can see the house as you drive down Ocean blvd....no tours, its her home...
MM 354.5 Formerly Free Docks at Barefoot Landing
Because of the mall, this has been called the most expensive free dock on the ICW There is 500 or so feet of dock, and boats tie and then raft onto each other. When we were there, there were at least 36 boats there (mostly monohull sailboats), rafted to the maximum of 4 in a...
MM 348.2 Marina at Dock Holidays
We stayed here on our first trip. At that time, the marina told us that the ICW would be closed south of them due to high steel work on a new bridge. We had free cable TV, but our cable was too short to reach. We walked up toward one of the 5 restaurants that are here...
A woman will drive an atv with an attached cart up and down the beach. It contains sunscreen, snacks, soda, etc. If you need something wave or walk over and get what you need. The atv moves slowly, so it's not a problem getting to it.
Free Docks and Nasty Canal
North Myrtle Beach and the whole Myrtle Beach area is famous as a vacation spot, for golf (photo 3 shows a chair lift across the ICW for golfers), beach and fishing. Those are not reasons for me to visit. I come because the ICW goes through this area and if I want to go...
