I recently had a bad accident that left me handicapped for a few months. While it’s not the best time of year to be in a boot in sunny South Carolina, I’ve made the best of it in a lot of ways. For starters, it has given me the opportunity to get reacquainted with the handicapped-friendliness of our beach destination! For example, I had no idea that with a handicapped license tag, you may park for free in any public-operated parking meter. This includes much of the beach access parking you’ll find along the Grand Strand. For those of you who…

Litchfield Beach is a small and sophisticated community just 20 miles south of Myrtle Beach. Part of the greater Pawleys Island area, Litchfield has a totally separate vibe and is considered one of the Grand Strand’s 14 unique neighborhoods. The town took its name from a rice plantation that operated near the region in the 1700’s, and it has been carefully zoned to preserve its pristine beauty. Litchfield Beach was established in 1978, and it offers exclusive beach-front family vacation homes and a quiet, relaxed pace. There is a long section…

Twenty-two miles south of Myrtle Beach is a stunning barrier island named Pawleys. The southernmost Grand Strand neighborhood, Pawleys Island is one of the oldest resort towns on the east coast. In the 17 and 1800’s, plantation owners moved their families and often their livestock to the island for fresh ocean breezes and a healthier environment during the hot, humid summer months. A few of the original homes still stand in the historic district on this ruggedly-beautiful island. There are no commercial businesses on the island, as the town,…

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is the perfect place to pick up a shelling hobby. With over 60-miles of uninterrupted shoreline, you can walk for miles and explore a variety of beaches in search of the perfect seashell. While even shelling enthusiasts admit that luck and chance have a large role in determining what shells one finds on the beach, there are a few things that can certainly increase your chances. Laura Rusinko, president of the Grand Strand Shell Club, shared these tips with us last week: Have the Right Equipment While all you…

Hop in the car, take a drive, see beautiful things, challenge your mind and enjoy gourmet dining!

The Art Trail stretches the entire 60 mile length of the Grand Strand from Calabash, NC, inland to Conway, SC and southward to Georgetown, SC. The purpose of the trail, like those in other cities, is to provide art lovers with an easy-to-follow map to see much of the best artwork in the area, most of which is for sale. For…

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…

The summer is coming to an unofficial close this weekend, which means the fall season is upon us. Like most of you, that has us dreaming of the warmth, familiarity and deliciousness of comfort food. Here are some of the best of the best in our area: Deep-fried Deviled Eggs: Deviled eggs will always have a place at the table, as far as we’re concerned. But then Frank’s went ahead and deep-fried them and topped it off with jalapeno and bacon. Crab Cake Benedict: Fresh seafood is synonymous with Myrtle Beach, so we shouldn’t be surprised to see…

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…
