Myrtle Beach.

Discussion in 'Open Discussion (Work-safe)' started by crazybuckfan40, Mar 21, 2005.

  1. I am planning a trip to Myrtle Beach over the summer. Like end of June to early to July or maybe a bit later in July. Anyone that has been there have any suggestions on where to stay and what to do. Also what is the best time to go. Early July or late July or does it matter.

    Keep in mind I will only be 20 when I go.

    We always go down around the Pawleys Island area. It's about 20-30 minutes south of Myrtle Beach, so you miss out on alot of traffic and more expensive housing, but it's still close enough that you can get there for all of the attractions. It depends on what you want though.... if you want to be amongst the crowd, then stay in Myrtle by all means.

    Now that I think of it, I did stay in Myrtle Beach once. As a track team, we went there for spring break 2003. We got a hotel right on the beach. It was awesome. Wake up and open the blinds...... hello Atlantic Ocean! Of course, then it was too cold to swim in the ocean, but there were 2 pools in the hotel.

    As for what to do, if you like fishing, get a charter out on the ocean for some deep-sea fishing. They have various distance/time trips to cater to what you want. As long as you don't get seasick, it's a great time and you can catch some BIG fish
     
  3. Thanks for some info. What is the price difference from Myrtle to Pawley's Island. I am not really big on fishing, but I like to golf. Also what are the local resturants that are good places to eat.

    Never been to Myrtle Beach, though my brother and his family have gone quite a few times and really enjoyed it. Hmm. Might have to give it a try sometime.

    coastalbuck And this one belongs to the Reds!

    Pawley's island is a very slow moving and quiet resort area. MB on the other hand is the opposite. Plenty of good golf courses around, most overpriced and if you pay the tourist fees it will cost you plenty. Lot's of good food, again, you'll get what you pay for. Anything I can help with, let me know.

    --Seafood...go to Murrell's Inlet for a number of can't-miss restaurants (Lee's is my personal favorite)

    --Entertainment...go to Broadway at the Beach for nightclubs although there are a number of under-21 clubs on the Grand Strand. Barefoot Landing is also a good time. Make sure you eat at Dick's Last Resort for the "excellent service"

    --The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Class A affiliate of the Braves) are always entertaining

    --Myrtle Beach will keep you entertained. There is always something going on, but you are coming at the height of tourist season. Avoid 4th of July time (week before and week after)...its almost unbearable

    Anything else you need, just let me know. Between Coastal and myself, we should be able to give you the rundown on anything.

    I'm going there the first two weeks of June. Camping at Lakewood, which I believe is just a little south of the downtown area. Taking the pup (golden retriever) on his first trip to the beach. That should be interesting. This will be my third trip there in five years. The Pelicans are a good time. Quality ball and cheap beer. I know I've been to both Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing that grad mentioned and had a good time.

    Lakewood is south of the Strand towards Surfside. I used to work as a bartender at the Tiki bar in Myrtle Beach Resort which is next to Lakewood.
    Make sure you hit the Village Cafe in Surfside...excellent breakfast and lunch.

    I think I'm going to go to MB sometime this summer. I haven't had good seafood in way too long.

    Is the Tiki Bar on the beach just south of Lakewood? If so, we visited that place a few times the last time we were there. It's a really nice atmosphere at night.

    Buck Nasty You'll have nothing and like it

    We usually stay the Arcadian Shores, in North Myrtle Beach. It is really nice, they have a couple golf courses, lots of beach/pool activities, shit for kids to do. It probably is not the cheapest place around, but it is just the right mix of busy and quiet for us. I usually just go down with the boys to play golf in the offseason, so we do not use the facilities much, but it would be a great place to go with your family if you have one.

    Yes it is...huge outdoor deck. I loved that job..huge $$. Could do that when I was still coaching JVs.
     
  13. What hotels do you recomend. So you would recomend going like the third week in July. What will the tempetures be. WIll they be in the 100's the whole time. What will they be in June. Like in the middle of June.

    Rarely do we hit 100s. Low to mid 90's but the ocean breezes help tremendously.

    There are a number of new hotels in the heart of the Strand. This link is a good source for everything you need to know. I'd suggest Coral Beach, The Breakers, The Landmark, The Seamist, or Coral Reef. It all depends on what you are looking for (family atmosphere?) and how much you want to spend.

    3rd week in July is pretty decent...from the middle of May to August will be crowded so you just have to be ready for that.
     
  15. Thanks man that site helps a bunch.
