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…

Growing up in the Myrtle Beach area, I often remember being asked where the locals hung out or what locals did for fun. In fact, I’m still asked all the time.

Maybe this year instead of the standard, you can…

Our friends at tripcentral.ca have a breakdown on all the discounts our Canadian friends can find in 2016. Read all…

Research from the U.S. Travel Association found 90 percent of Americans say paid time off helps them relax and 85 percent say it makes them happier, yet more than 40 percent did not use all their paid time off in 2014. According to Skift, southerners used the fewest vacation days of all. Thankfully there’s still time to get away in 2015 and many southern cities – like Myrtle Beach, South Carolina – still boast gorgeous weather and warm ocean waters during the early fall months, but with the added benefit of thinning crowds and even more…
