A Great Start to the Day

From generation to generation, we are taught that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Fortunately the great chefs at Croissants Bistro and Bakery agree. And there is no better proof than their renowned Carolina hash. This culinary masterpiece consists of two eggs made to order, potatoes, peppers and onions. Sound standard so far? The chefs at Croissants finish it off with pulled pork barbecue and pit barbecue sauce. See? A breakfast masterpiece.…

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…

Slip Slidin' Away!

We can't get enough of waterslides! No matter our age, we'll always be kids at heart when it comes to shooting through an enclosed, curving tube that sends us hurtling into a pool. The smiles on our faces can attest to the joy these wonderful creations give us. So, it goes without saying that we are so thrilled that the Crown Reef Resort right here in the Myrtle Beach area has opened its own brand-new oceanfront waterpark. This $2 million batch of fun includes two four-story enclosed waterslides, one being the world's first hotel "EXPLOSION"…

Fire Up The Grill!

We live in the south, which means we’re fans of, among other things, sweet tea, four-wheelers and barbecue. And since we live here in the Myrtle Beach area , we’re taking one of those southern staples as using it as the springboard, once again, for an end-of-summer blowout. The Ninth Annual Beach, Boogie & BBQ Festival returns to the Grand Strand over Labor Day Weekend on Aug. 29 and Aug. 30, 2014 at the Horry Georgetown Technical College Conference Center on the Grand Strand campus near Grand Park at The Market Common. Admission is free to this…

Step back in time and experience what it was like to live in the Myrtle Beach area between 1900 and 1955. The L.W. Paul Living History Farm gives visitors a sense of what living on a one-horse farm was all about. It was a fully-functional operation where crops are grown, soap is made and meat is cured.

Here A Legend, There A Legend

We count ourselves as diehard Aerosmith fans, and if we didn’t know any better, we’d swore we just saw Steven Tyler himself perform some of the band’s classics right here in the Myrtle Beach area . It wasn’t the actual Steven Tyler, but if you looked at the two in a side-by-side comparisons, you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference. This particular "Steven Tyler" is just one of the celebrity tribute artists currently performing at Legends in Concert . According to his bio, his real name is Chris Van Dahl , and he’s the lead singer of the…
