Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 3:13 PM by VisitMyrtleBeach SC

Here's an interesting piece of information about Ripley's Aquarium - it filters more water in one day than the city of Myrtle Beach does during the entire summer season. We learned that on a behind-the-scenes tour that taught us a great deal about just what makes the aquarium tick. Seeing the backstage area of Ripley's gives a person an even greater appreciation for the wonderment the general public can experience on a regular basis when they visit one of the Myrtle Beach area's most popular attractions. Make a point to check out the Swarm!…

A Gothic Love Story

We are just two days away from Halloween, so now is the time to get all those last-minute costume accessories together. Oh, and don't forget to be stocked up on candy before all those trick-or-treaters take to the neighborhoods of the Myrtle Beach area . Speaking of treats, we've got one for you in the form of a local ghost story. Because, let's be honest, who doesn't love a good supernatural yarn this time of year? The setting for this gothic tale is Murrells Inlet. In the mid-1800s, a young woman named Alice Flagg met a lumberman. Over the next…

It’s About To Get Spooky

Thursday, October 23, 2014 4:11 PM by VisitMyrtleBeach SC

Who doesn't love a good story? From childhood on through adulthood, we've always taken the time to hear others spin a good yarn, or picked up a book and discovered new characters and settings for ourselves. And now that the Halloween season is fully upon us, our favorite types of stories are of the spooky variety. That is why we are so excited for the Conway Ghost Walk: Spirits of the Lowcountry , which runs this weekend, Oct. 23 through Oct. 25, 2014. Our seven storytellers will regale the audience with spooky and even humorous tales about the…

Soup to Die For

Wednesday, September 3, 2014 3:00 AM by VisitMyrtleBeach SC

When most people think of soup, they think of the ultimate comfort food on a cold, dreary winter day, or when they're feeling a little bit under the weather. But the great folks at the Sea Captain's House will make you crave soup, even on a sunny day. The eatery's delectable She-Crab soup is creamy, hearty and delicious. And fortunately for us, the chef has even been so kind as to share the recipe . It's best enjoyed with a basket of Sea Captain's phenomenal hush puppies, which make for the perfect afternoon treat. And really, how about that…
