Happening NOW in Myrtle Beach and The Grand Strand

And if you don't already know, there is much more to see and do outside the Myrtle Beach city limits! Be sure to visit Murrells Inlet and the Marshwalk! You'll find excellent restaurants, live entertainment, seasonal events, and beautiful scenery. Don't forget your camera or smart phone because you WILL want photos. Plus, it's free to walk!

Another gem not to be missed is Pawleys Island, located just a few miles south of Murrells Inlet. Check the link. There is always something happening in the garden-like atmosphere. Spend a couple hours at the Hammock Shops. Have lunch there and shop for those "must have" items for unique stores. Cross the bridge to the island and start enjoying the scenery.

From Sylvia in Mich. (July 20, 2019) Hello, Patricia. I follow you on Facebook and often use your pages for obtaining information about my favorite beach. Thanks for all you do, especially for the beautiful photos you post. People are often quick to complain, but they don't say "thank you" very much. So thanks for being there and for all of us who love Myrtle Beach.

From G. Oswald in Toledo, Ohio: January 1, 2019 - I found your site when the family was searching for information about vacationing in Myrtle Beach. We've been looking for something different than we were finding in the popular Myrtle Beach links. They covered Myrtle Beach ONLY! Your information was GREAT! So there is LIFE outside Myrtle Beach city limits and you know where to go and how to get there. Thanks to your message board and other links on your website, we are planning a GREAT ADVENTURE in 2019: North Myrtle Beach, Garden City Beach, Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island. Maybe we'll take a trip to the islands surrounding Charleston. Happy New Year to you and yours!

From Jennifer S. in Ohio (12/6/17) You really have the best guide in Myrtle Beach. Thank you for all you do. We also like your Facebook photos which help us feel connected to our favorite beach.

From M.D.O.  in Burlington, NC 11/19/15 "Dear Patricia, I'm the guy who called you last week from our hotel room. We were just laying around wondering what we should do. On a whim I called your websight. You asked about the family, the youngster's ages and what they enjoy. You were so friendly and helpful. I had to write and say thank you. We could tell you know everything about the Myrtle Beach area, and took the time to be sure the suggestions were something we would really enjoy doing. We took our boys to play mini golf and to that UpsidDown building. The women loved Broadway and Barefoot. But what stands out most is the drive south from Myrtle Beach to Pawleys Island. It was amazing! We had researched Myrtle Beach, but we didn't know these little towns existed. Thank you!

From  4/14/16 Sally M. in Trenton, NJ : You answered when I called! Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions and for your suggestions about the best things we should not miss. It was like having a friend in the city where we want to vacation.

From  12/10/16 LynnLee in Baltimore, MD : Thank you for taking my call. As I mentioned, we hava special needs child and I wanted information on family things to do. I would never have known about Savannah's Park if you had not told me. What a wonderful addition to Myrtle Beacg\h. Wish you could have seen her smile and giggle! It would just break your heart. We also loved your tips on finding seashells. We followed your suggestion and went to one of those "beach" stores" (Eagle, I think) and bought a bag of shells that we scattered around our motel. The shell hunt was successful (even the real shells my husband and I found at the ocean edge.) I never knew you could pick up your phone and call a local! We will be back. God Bless You!
