You’ll find no shortage of waterfront dining options this summer in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The opening of restaurants like RipTydz and Tin Roof in downtown Myrtle Beach provide scenic views of the ocean, while at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach , LuLu’s is offering a fantastic view of the Intracoastal Waterway. The 17,000-square foot, open-air restaurant opened in June and is seeing a steady wave of guests eager to sample their large menu, listen to live music, spend time on their private ‘beach,’ and enjoy the kids activities. The…

We recently had the chance to check out Tin Roof , Myrtle Beach’s newest oceanfront music venue, and it did not disappoint. They are offering a complete oceanfront entertainment experience with live music, cold drinks, and a delicious menu much larger than I was expecting! You might be familiar with the popular music venue, as this is the 15th location they’ve opened… but of the ones I’ve visited, this one is easily my favorite. Tin Roof is located on the third level of a 55,000 square foot, newly constructed building in the 1400 block of Ocean…

Myrtle Beach Area Farmers Markets in Season

The past couple years I’ve done a happy dance once May 1 rolls around. Not just because it’s around the time I’ll start swimming in the ocean, but because it marks the official start of farmers market season here along the Grand Strand. Before tourism was the number one industry in Horry County (where Myrtle Beach is located), farming and agriculture drove our local economy. While the area evolved as more and more people came to visit, it is still home to a number of outstanding farming operations that provide us with fantastic seasonal produce…

With Memorial Day weekend just around the corner, I’ve been thinking about all the outdoor grilling that will be taking place. But Memorial Day weekend meals in South Carolina often go a step beyond just hamburgers and hotdogs. It’s a holiday often marked with plenty of barbecue! While I can’t say barbecue is the official cuisine of South Carolina, perhaps it should be. Many state officials even say that our state is the original birthplace of barbecue, dating back to early settlement of the Spanish on Parris Island who smoked swine with an…

Held along the historic Little River waterfront, the ‘World Famous’ Blue Crab Festival is one of the largest festivals held along the Grand Strand each year.

The Myrtle Beach area is home to a large number of great festivals and events throughout the year. (If you keep up with our events calendar , you likely already know this.) But one of my newer favorites is the Myrtle Beach Food Truck Festival, celebrating its second year in downtown Myrtle Beach this weekend. While this event is newer to the area, its first year was wildly successful. The combination of an amazing oceanfront view, outstanding food vendors and fun live music make its success no big surprise… we had a blast last year! This year,…

Myrtle Beach’s Annual Beach, Boogie and BBQ Festival draws a crowd every year as over 25 barbeque teams compete to take home over $8,600 in cash and prizes. The mouth watering event is an Official BBQ Championship of South Carolina and sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, and competitors take their craft seriously. One of the best aspects of this Labor Day weekend event is that admission and parking are both free to attendees. Here’s a look at one festival attendees can expect: Friday, September 1 - 6 to 9 p.m. Wing Competition and…

The Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association will hold this year’s 7th Annual Coastal Uncorked, Food, Wine and Spirits Festival at Broadway at the Beach near the Pavilion Park Central over Labor Day Weekend.
