Myrtle Beach, SC
It has been a while since I visited Myrtle Beach, 3 years actually, but I still remember the details. We stayed at Wyndham Seawatch Plantation. This is a Wyndham Vacation Resort. It was wonderful. They have rooms that are actually like apartments instead of a hotel room. They have 1-3 bedrooms with 1-2 bathrooms, a full kitchen, washer and dryer, wifi, and cable TV. The resort offers beach access, 5 outdoor swimming pools, 2 indoor swimming pools, indoor children's pool, 2 lazy rivers, daily activity programs, a fitness room, 2 indoor hot tubs, 9 outdoor hot tubs, Board Games, Pool Toys, and Sports Balls Available for Check Out, restaurant, game room, tiki bar, and help with activities off site. The resort is located right on the beach with beautiful views.
One place we visited was Barefoot Landing. This area offers shopping, dining, and entertainment. Dining includes House of Blues, Castano's Italian Steakhouse, Dick's Last Resort, Flying Fish Public Market and Grill, Joe's Crab Shack, Johnny Rockets, and much more. There are also places to just grab a quick bite like Auntie Anne's Pretzels, Funnel Cake Island, River Street Sweets and many more. We decided to dine at Johnny Rockets and Dick's Last Resort. Johnny Rockets was amazing. The food was amazing. They have your typical American fare such as hamburgers and fries and shakes. They are more than just an eatery, they are also entertaining. Every 1/2 hour the employees get together and DANCE! I do not want to ruin the surprise, but Dick's Last Resort is a must see eatery. It is definitely not your typical restaurant. If you get embarrassed easily I would not visit this restaurant, but if you like to have fun it is a must! As far as attractions go they have a 7D cinema (4D screen plus 9 physical effects on every single
seat.), Alligator Adventure with over 700 alligators and crocodiles, extremely rare exotic snakes, lizards, tropical birds, tortoises, albino alligators, and komodo dragons with live shows and demonstrations to thrill all ages; a marina, House of Blues, Old Tyme photos, Alabama Theater, Barefoot Carousel, a Mirror Maze, and T.I.G.E.R.S / Preservation Station where you can watch the cubs and the large cats as they interact and play or have your picture taken with a cub or two and maybe even an ape while helping endangered animals. Shopping comes in all forms from Sunglass Hut to The Olive Shop, Inner Island Surf & Sport Resortwear to Christmas Mouse and SC Jewelers to Burlington shoes. There is something for everyone to do here.
Another great place we visited was Broadway at the Beach. They have attractions such as Wonderworks, Broadway Grand Prix, Carolina Comedy Club, Dragon's Lair Fantasy Golf, Encounters: UFO Experience, Hollywood Wax Museum, Myrtle Waves Water Park, Pavillion Park which features kiddie rides, Ripley's Aquarium and more. They have restaurants such as Hard Rock Cafe, Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville, Joe's Crab Shack, Johnny Rockets, Landry's Seafood, and much more to choose from as well as places to grab a snack. There is also a variety of shopping to choose from as well. Everyone of all ages will be entertained.
