Myrtle Beach Appeals to All

Posted on May 28, 2013 by


It’s that time of year again, when people start to think about vacations. Looking for a good place to go? Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is one of the top vacation spots in the United States. Myrtle has fun for the entire family, with entertainment for children and toddlers, all the way up to a great nightlife for the adults.

The beach at Myrtle is one of the best beaches around. The sand is a nice off-white color that’s both clean and soft. The water is always a nice temperature in the summer, not too cold, but also not so warm that it doesn’t seem like an ocean. It is colored a nice green-blue.  The water is very beautiful, especially to look at off of a balcony that faces the ocean or is angled to see it.

As soon as you’re entering the area of Myrtle Beach, travelers can smell the salty air. Sometimes, it is even possible to taste it and feel it. It is the perfect beach atmosphere right from the start.

There are plenty of places to go shopping as well. Broadway at the Beach is one of the biggest attractions in Myrtle. It can be described as almost like a giant outdoor mall. There are hundreds of stores, and each is a variety of its own. They have everything from kite and magic stores, to fashion and jewelry stores.

There is also an abundance of good restaurants, and the hardest part of traveling is probably picking the one to eat at. Broadway also has a place called Celebrity Square filled with bars and clubs and all kinds of places for a fun nightlife.

Another big attraction is Barefoot Landing.

Barefoot is almost like a smaller version of Broadway when it comes to the stores, but it has attractions of its own. Alligator Adventure is a huge part of Barefoot, where visitors can see alligator shows demonstrating how they’re fed and entertained. Travelers can also observe some of the world’s largest gators.

Alligator Adventure has other animals as well.  While most are reptiles, they also have some other wild animals .

The biggest restaurant at Barefoot is Dick’s Last Resort. Here, it’s all about the experience. Dick’s is one big building of fun. They flip things around on diners, and the waiters and waitresses are extremely rude and make fun of you, but it’s all part of the experience. This may seem bad, but it’s a lot of fun to be there and most people who visit Myrtle will go there at least once.

Myrtle Beach also has a strip that is about a half mile to a mile long full of shops. It’s one long section of street just filled with stores on either side. The stores sell some pretty cool items, and patrons can bargain the workers and get prices slimmed down a bit, which is always fun.

The street that runs between these rows of stores is always littered with hot cars. People drive their cars up and down this street to show them off to the world. One can see everything from tricked-out Mustangs to Porches to Ferraris.

All beaches can usually be fun for a couple of days, but Myrtle Beach is one of the few places that can keep people entertained for as long as they stay. With different shows every night, and many tourist attractions, there is always something to enjoy. Myrtle is highly recommended to anyone who wants to have a lot of fun on vacation, especially with family.
