    awesomely surpised that this place was so nice! Rented for only $120 night, which seemed really cheap for the late summer on the beach, and gritted our teeth in fear that the place would be gross or worse, but it was GREAT! Clean, well equipped, beautiful views, plenty of room. With 2 full bedrooms and 2 full baths, there was plenty of privacy. The resort was quiet, easy to access, and though our unit was across a road from the beach, we could see the ocean and walk easily to it via a beach access. Pools and spas were nice, and with a full kitchen and a washer dryer in the unit, it was super convenient. Bonus- we could watch the fireworks at Barefoot Landing from our balcony or bedroom!

  • 2. Captain George's Seafood
    Captain George's Seafood Restaurant, Myrtle Beach

    with a huge buffet, this place was worth the money. Seated quickly in spite of a huge crowd, the service was adequate, the food plentiful and hot. Plenty of choices in both hot and cold foods, everything form seafood salad, excellent stuff mushrooms, fried shrimp, fish and scallops to steamed crab legs and fried chicken. Save room for dessert- they are too good to pass up. It's about time to retire the "pirate" who periodically makes his rounds to each table for a quick 'Arrgghhh!' though.

  • 3. Myrtle Waves
    Myrtle Waves Water Park, Myrtle Beach

    though some have complained- we found this to be an enjoyable way for all to spend the day. While it is not as large as some of the Florida or other water parks, it is perfectly adequate and doesn't require as much walking on hot concrete as some. The wave pool is not so strong it will exhaust you, and the tubes and tunnels are fun. Plenty of inner tubes and lifeguards who are actually watching the swimmers make this a safe afternoon of fun.

  • 4. Barefoot Landing
    Barefoot Landing, North Myrtle Beach

    Don't miss the Monday night fireworks! House of Blues, other restaurants and plenty of shops.

  • 5. Grand Prix Family Thrill Park

    plenty of fun for adults and kids alike! The early teens are likely to turn into daredevils on the track, and even some Dad's will tunnel a race car driver before the day is out!

  • 6. Broadway at the Beach
    Broadway at the Beach, Myrtle Beach

    A fun and exciting place to spend an afternoon and evening. Beware that the tourists and locals get drunker after about 10 pm, so go early and leave by then. Fireworks over the lagoon every Tuesday night cause huge crowds on the walkways over the water, but can easily be seen from most anywhere in the area. Lots of shops, lots of restaurants and lots of entertainment, where the atmosphere changes as darkness falls. Live bands play for free, and there are lots of places to stop and rest your weary feet. The back deck at Senor Frogs looks like an awesome place to see the fireworks, there is always a good meal to be had, and everyone can find something to love here. One warning- skip Broadway Louie's Grill. This place is SO not as advertised. It bills itself as a grill or restaurant, and the only sports bar in Myrtle beach. It claims to have excellent food, over 50 TVs and plenty of table where you can dial in the sound of your favorite sports attraction right at your table. This place is at best an arcade, and a somewhat scuzzy one. The table are few and far between, all come with a barstool if you can find it, none have anything to dial into any sound with, most are dirty and tiny, and there is no restaurant or menu. Even the guy at the bar looked stunned when we aske d where the restaurant was. Yes, there are a bunch of TVs, mostly over the bar. It is dark, and smelly, and nothing more than a cheap bar and arcade you can find anywhere. It should actually be illegal for them to advertise as they do. Sports Bar it is NOT. Even my 13 year old sports nut son was disgusted. We had previewed the menu, which looks good on the web site, and had planned a meal around his favorite sports game time, and expected to sit at a decent table where we could be served our meal and listent o the game. This doesn't even exist at this place. There is only the bar, the games, the noise and the guy smoking at the counter where your disappointed kids might try to cash in their tickets for a cheap toy. Skip it.
