south carolina myrtle beach

Myrtle Beach SC, is one of the most family friendly and fun places for vacation. Whatever your speed, Myrtle Beach is the deal. Those seeking a high-energy adrenaline rush activities, they can visit the theme park rides. Basking in the sun on the beach or taking a long stroll along the beach is just as much fun.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has a huge pool of oceanfront hotels. In addition, there are so many fun things to do and places to visit in SC.

In this blog, I will be taking you on a wild ride from my experience for a oceanfront hotel, amusement parks, and restaurants.

Welcome To Myrtle Beach South Carolina.

Why Vacation in Myrtle Beach SC?

Enjoy some you-time at the  SUN N SAND Oceanfront Resort with affordable rates. The hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach and is walking distance to  the fun filled amusement parks and many amazing restaurants.

If you are vacationing with a  large family and need a home away from home, then there are AirBnB housing  available for rental. However, most Airbnbs are further away from beachfront access compared to the hotel resorts.

There are many oceanfront apartments that are rented on Airbnb. But, wherever you choose as your living accommodation, does not really matter. Let’s face it, about 90-95% of the time on vacation is spent outdoors most days. For me, easy access to the beach, restaurants, fun activities and nightlife is key when on vacation. I love to be able to walk from my hotel down the street to a restaurant or walk onto the beach.

Oceanfront Meets Affordable Vacation.

Tired of COVID-19 lock down,or just need a break from the city? Then plan a vacation to Myrtle Beach. Take in the breathtaking views of the ocean from the balcony of the Sun N Sand Oceanfront Hotel.

Relax By The Pool

Put on your swim wear and sunglasses. Walk down to the Sun N Sand Resort large outdoor pool which is only steps away from the ocean. The hotel also has an indoor pool that you can also enjoy. 

The resort houses a restaurant and an outdoor TiKi Bar where you can sit and have a long island Ice tea with one of their delicious meal special. If you want to explore more cuisines, read on, i have some very good recommendations later in the blog.

Private Access To The Beach

Leave directly from the pool through a private access and in seconds your feet are on the sandy beach basking in the sun and cleansing your soul from the salty waves of the ocean.

Myrtle Beaches, in my opinion, does not have the best beaches, but they are enough to take your spirit to an never ending bliss and relaxation.

If you are looking for an adrenaline rush, then get wet having fun  Jet Skiing  or Parasailing.

Myrtle Beach Family Kingdom Amusement Park.

Where Your Inner Child Is Unleashed

The Family Kingdom Amusement Park  is few minutes walking  from the Sun N Sand Resort. The park offers a number of rides that everyone can enjoy; from the kiddies to the elderly. 

The Family Kingdom also has a oceanfront water park called Splashes that the entire family can enjoy.

The  Myrtle Beach SkyWheel is an iconic landmark by the Family Kingdom park. The wheel takes you about 200 feet above the ocean and leaves you with breath taking panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. 

At nights, the wheel showcases an amazing display of changing LED lights; it will leave you with an experience of a lifetime.

Vacation In Myrtle Beach. Where Travel and Food Connect.

Food and Travel is like a horse and carriage; you cant have one without the other. Exploring the food culture of a geographic location is inevitable when on vacation. Below are a few recommended restaurants that I think you will enjoy.

Myrtle Beach, SC.

IHOP Restaurant in Myrtle Beach is your go place for breakfast, even though they have other menu options besides eggs and pancakes. Check out my other blog Exploring Ihop’s Breakfast Pancake Menu for more details.

The Waffle House Myrtle Beach SC.

The Waffle House  is one of those restaurants that is predominantly found in the southern states. As the name suggest, they specialize in breakfast menu that includes  waffles. The waffles were really good; very crunchy on the outside, but buttery soft on the inside.

This was my first time visiting The Waffle House. Compared to NYC, the customer service from  the staff at the restaurants I have visited in the south are exceptional. Maybe is just the southern hospitality spirit.

Wet Willies, Myrtle Beach

Wet Willies  is your go to place for an alcohol infused slushy. There are so many different flavors to choose. My favorite flavors  to mix are “Call-A-Cab” and “Mango”. I have been to South Beach several times. My first stop is Wet Willies. 

However, wet willies is a restaurant that has a full menu. They serve one of the best burgers, fries and chicken wings.

At this particular location, was where I had deep fried pickles. It was an interesting taste, but not really a fan. 

Myrtle Beach Joe's Crab Shack

If you a big fan of seafood, then Joe’s Crab Shack is your go to restaurant. It is located in the Celebrity Square.

The restaurant has one of the most interesting, but weird ambiance I have seen. I highly recommend that you try their coconut shrimp.

Rooster's Restaurant & Bar

Another Celebrity Circle dining place is their Roosters Restaurant and Bar. This restaurant is what i call a one-stop-shop. Their menu is very diverse. The restaurant’s drinks cocktail are wildly cheap, especially during their  happy hours.

The first thing that comes to mind when  I hear the name Friendly’s is ice-cream. Not sure if the Friendly’s ice-cream  brand is a franchise of the Friendly’s Restaurant.

One thing I can tell you about the restaurant is that you get your money’s worth. The portion size of their meals are twice the size compared to other restaurants. They also carry a wide selection of different flavored ice-creams. Moreover, the restaurant is within walking distance from the  resort.
