I grew up in the North Myrtle Beach area, and yet it took me 31 years before I learned about Ingram Dunes—that is a well-kept secret! The kids and I went for a drive yesterday (a favorite pandemic pastime) despite the afternoon showers, and we ended up coming across Ingram Dunes. I have been meaning to figure out where they were exactly located since last fall, and yesterday ended up being a good day to do that. These magnificent dunes were formed over 80,000 years ago and comprise one of the most natural green spaces on the beach side of…

Traveling safely is not only possible during a pandemic, it’s important—especially when travel takes you to sunny beaches to breathe fresh salt air, feel the sand between your toes, and make connections with family and friends. The Myrtle Beach area offers 60 miles of beautiful beaches (so there’s plenty of room to spread out), and it also offers more than 10,000 camping sites at nine campgrounds and two state parks. When I say “campground” you may picture a few tents pitched near a small grove of trees, but I’m here to tell you—some of the…

This weekend brings two important dates for beachgoers everywhere—Saturday, June 20, is the official start of summer, and Sunday, June 21, is National Seashell Day! It’s fitting that these two dates happen within a day of each other, as summer at the beach (and especially Myrtle Beach) is the perfect opportunity to find some seashells. I’ve always enjoyed finding shells when I’ve gone to the beach, but never in the past set out with the intention to go searching for seashells. The recent quarantine due to COVID-19 changed that! Shelling is a…

The Beach is Back! The Myrtle Beach area is excited to welcome you back to the Beach! We are opening in a safe and smart way following the COVID-19 closures, so we're here when you are ready. From hotels and resorts to restaurants and attractions, area businesses have come up with ways to limit person-to-person contact, promote social distancing, and keep facilities clean. It is vital that employees and guests alike take care to keep hands clean and keep their distance. Local municipalities have worked very hard to develop regulations meant…

Brookgreen Gardens is a Grand Strand masterpiece on any day, but now, it’s especially exciting to visit as they are hosting an amazing art exhibit by internationally known artist Bruce Munro. Munro’s Southern Light exhibit opened on May 15 and it will run through September 12, 2020. I had the opportunity to visit Brookgreen and view the exhibit in mid-May, and I was blown away. The evening began with us watching a recorded Zoom call between Brookgreen’s marketing manager, Lauren Joseph, and Bruce Munro himself. He was supposed to be in…
