Today we are visiting the Seafood Capital of South Carolina! Any guesses as to where that is? That’s right - we are in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, only 13 miles south of the heart of Myrtle Beach! This historic fishing town is both quaint and swanky at the same time, with live music on the MarshWalk almost every night. The MarshWalk is a half-mile long boardwalk that spans along the marsh and home to eight unique establishments that serve up the best of coastal cuisine, a staple of the Myrtle Beach area. You will find iconic restaurants…

If you are anything like my family growing up, we always had an itinerary on vacation – it was the only way we didn’t miss out on everything we wanted to do! For those currently planning their spring break holiday, here are a few ideas to get you started. Day 1 On your first day at The Beach, you should spend as much time at the beach as possible!

Of course, you know you can enjoy the Myrtle Beach area’s 60-mile long beach, revel in its many dynamic attractions, and dine at 1,800+ restaurants, but did you know there are an abundance of activities that allow you to slow down, relax and explore the region’s natural beauty? Kayaking is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in nature as you quietly traverse waterways and observe wildlife in its natural habitat. Our region offers remote island exploration, salt marsh tours, sunrise tours, river tours, Intracoastal Waterway tours, fishing…

As a lifelong Myrtle Beach area resident, I’m not sure why it took me 29 years to make it onto one of our area’s dolphin watching cruises. I was missing out... Because now having done it, I can say It was one of the most memorable experiences I’ve had while out on the water along the Grand Strand. While there are multiple operators that offer great dolphin watching experiences-both out of Murrells Inlet and Little River-I hopped aboard Captain Mark Collins’ vessel with Blue Wave Adventures Dolphin Watch Cruise. Their dolphin watch cruise runs…
