When your toddler’s palate is just as discerning as yours, there are a few restaurants we recommend across our 60 miles of coastline that cater to tiny foodies as much as adult ones. 21 Main Settled within the gorgeous North Beach Plantation, 21 Main’s children’s menu includes a 4 oz filet with a side of mashed potatoes.

Benjamin’s Bakery in Surfside has been serving up fresh, made-from-scratch baked goods to locals, visitors and Grand Strand restaurants for more than 20 years. At last count, Benjamin’s supplies more than 150 restaurants throughout the Myrtle Beach area with its baked goodness.

Deviled eggs are not just delicious, they’re also quite nutritious. Eating two deviled eggs, or essentially one whole egg, supplies your body with 6 grams of protein; folate, vitamin B-6 and vitamin B-12, which all help convert food into energy; and three forms of vitamin A, among others. Frank’s in Pawleys Island takes the whole thing one step further, by dipping the egg whites in a panko-and-milk bath and then deep-frying the thing before piping in deviled yolk. Top that off with jalepeno and bacon and it’s a recipe for amazingness. Never you…

While there are too many waterside-restaurants to even count, here is a sampling of some of our favorites. Gulfstream Café Being on the east coast, unobstructed sunset views can be hard to come by. Gulfstream Café in Garden City is one of the rare…

While the Rockin Jump Ultimate Trampoline Park is a GREAT rainy day activity in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, it’s really perfect for any weather. I stopped by recently with my (younger) friend Bre.

The park is home to large open jump spaces, a challenge course, a vertical ops wall, dodgeball, a foam pit and more. Bre’s favorite part is the open jump space, but my favorite was the…
