    Broadway at the Beach

    by GUYON Updated Sep 30, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Address: Celebrity Circle - Myrtle Beach

    Directions: Located between the 21yh and the 27th streets

    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.

  • The Carolina Opry & Good Vibrations

    by dande9 Updated Feb 23, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Address: 8901A Business Hwy 17 N

    Directions: Shares a parking lot with Dixie Stampede on the north end where business and bypass highways 17 merge together
