Halloween On The Marsh Walk

Monday, October 28, 2013 2:19 PM by VisitMyrtleBeach SC

It's almost All Hallows Eve! And that means ghosts and goblins of all ages will come out to get copious amounts of that Halloween staple - candy! We love the parade of youngsters who come out dressed to the nines every Oct. 31 in the Myrtle Beach area . What are they going to be this year? Perhaps one of the Avengers? A Despicable Me minion? One of the Duck Dynasty cast? More importantly, where are they going to go to have fun and get all those sweets that are sure to make hundreds of dentists cry? We can't think of a better place than…

And we're certainly excited for this Saturday's 24 th Annual Georgetown Wooden Boat Show , running from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Taking place on the waterfront and along Front Street in historic downtown Georgetown , this year's show will feature…

A Feeling Of Living in the 18th Century

All one needs do is take a closer look at the Myrtle Beach area , and they'll find remnants of not only the Grand Strand's past, but the country's as well. Taking a trek to the outskirts of Georgetown, one will find an "historic jewel" in the Hopsewee Plantation . That's what the wonderful and vibrant tour guide called the home sitting on the property, because it's an original. That floor you walk on is the same floor that's been there for over 200 years. We found one of the more interesting aspects of the Hopsewee Plantation home is the…
