  • 1. Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort and Spa at Grand Dunes
    Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes, Myrtle Beach

    We stayed here when Marriott rewards offered us half price if we went and saw their time share presentation. It was a pretty sweet deal. The hotel was awesome, very clean, the most comfortable beds imaginable...cleaning service was great. When we checked in they had no more King rooms, but offered us a double room with ocean view... we couldn't complain. We woke up to the view of the waves lapping against the shore.
    Skip the buffet breakfast at the hotel's restaurant... it was cold and unappetizing. Do eat lunch by the pool.... it's pricey, but very tasty (I enjoyed the chicken taco salad). Drinks were great too. I tried a banana daiquiri that was awesome. Live music plays on Saturdays around 3pm. Free lemonade in the lobby daily, but at staggered times.
    Here's a blurb from the website: "405 luxurious guest rooms, most with ocean views. Large tropical beach front pool with water slide and a European Spa with indoor pool. Direct access to Myrtle Beach."

  • 2. The Carolina Opry
    The Carolina Opry, Myrtle Beach

    We saw the original show, and it was pretty decent. There is some real talent here, that surpasses the actual show. The two hour show is comprised of some stand up comedy (between acts), great piano pieces by Jon England, recognizable songs sung by talented singers (the BAND is AWESOME), some mediocre dance numbers, and appearances by "All That" (4 guys tapping) that will leave you wanting more... especially if you've seen "STOMP". The music is 50% pop-country, and 50% rock/alternative music (the Pirate's of the Caribbean song dubbed over their montage on the website has NOTHING to do with the actual show) This was worth seeing, though it may have been more fun for us to see Good Vibrations (Same people but all 60's, 70's, & 80's songs).

  • 3. Hard Rock Cafe
    Hard Rock Cafe, Myrtle Beach

    We ate here after trying to get into Margaritaville (forget about it! Unless you want to wait 2.5 hours!!!). The wait at Hard Rock was an hour, but we went in and sat down at the bar, and ate right away. There were Trivial Pursuit cards to keep us occupied, and our own personal tv blasting "promotional" rock videos. We both had burgers, very good, and drinks. The lemon drop martini was very good.

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

    Walk around here after you eat dinner and have a few drinks. Check out the strangely large fish at the feeding stations on the floating dock. The Dueling Piano bar sounded like fun, but we didn't go in. There were several places to hear music, dance, or have some drinks. We headed over to the Nostalgic Park, and got tickets to ride the ship. The swings were fun too.
