Many people who come to coastal South Carolina and choose to stay in a North Myrtle Beach condo rental from us want to fully experience what it’s like to live here. This is especially true for the people that return year after year. These vacationers know their way around the area and what it has to offer. They’re good at finding the best deals, know where their favorite restaurants are, and can locate the finest golf packages.
But to fully experience life here as the residents do you have to take in a few of the local events taking place during your stay — events such as the following that are both just a short drive from your North Myrtle Beach condo rental.
The Belin United Methodist Church Annual Blessing of the Inlet is taking place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 4. Come out and be a part of this annual day-long celebration of worship, entertainment, great food, family fun and arts & crafts. The “Blessing of the Inlet” ceremony will start at 11:30 a.m. Admission is free. The event, now in its 16th year, will be held at Belin United Methodist Church (4183 Hwy 17 Business) in Murrells Inlet. Call 843-651-5099 for more information.
On May 4 the 8th Annual Makai Luau, a Grand Strand tradition, will be held from 6 -10 p.m. at the Hot Fish Club located in beautiful Murrells Inlet, SC. This by-ticket-only benefit begins at 6 p.m. on the lawn of the Hot Fish Club and will feature live music, a fire and hula show from Chief Kamu, a traditional luau buffet, beer and wine beverages, as well as the wildly popular Surfers Punch. There will be prizes for the Ugliest Hawaiian Shirt contest, a Best Lei contest, and more. All proceeds from this event fund the projects of the Grand Strand Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, a grassroots, non-profit, environmental organization that works to protect our oceans, waves, and beaches. Tickets prices will be on sale at area surf shops, through a local Surfrider member, or by visiting Surfrider’s website www.surfridergrandstrand.org. Contact Bruxanne Hein at 333-2034 for more information.
So when you’re visiting the South Carolina shores, take in as many local events as you can and you’ll experience first hand how enjoyable living here can truly be.
While the Myrtle Beach and Grand Strand area is known for their championship golf, there are plenty of other things to do here besides golf and go to the beach. We realize that some of you would prefer to spend all of your time on the courses, day in and day out, but in most cases you’ll have some time off of the courses to check out the area and all it has to offer. Believe it or not, there are also people who don’t ever play golf at all. So when you’re looking for things to do outside of your North Myrtle Beach condo rental you might consider some of the local events and entertainment venues that the area offers.
Take a trip to Broadway at the Beach or Barefoot Landing and explore all the shops, entertainment venues and restaurants. For those who enjoy live theatre or dinner theatre, check out the many venues for theatre including Palace Theatre, Alabama Theatre, The Carolina Opry, Dixie Stampede, Legends in Concert, Carolina Improv Company and Medieval Times, to name a few.
If you enjoy a good baseball game, and who doesn’t, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans Minor League Baseball team will be playing home games in Myrtle Beach this summer with fireworks following these select games, weather permitting. For April the home games will be April 15-17, and 22-28. All games start at 7:05 p.m. and are held at BB&T Coastal Field in the heart of Myrtle Beach.
Once you set foot away from your comfortable North Myrtle Beach condo rental, with the beach so close and the pools and other amenities, you’ll see just what you’re missing! Just remember, just as with golf, all things in moderation!
The first thing you should do when planning a romantic beach vacation this time of year is to reserve your North Myrtle Beach condo rental as soon as you decide when you want to arrive. That way you will know you have the ideal setting in which to spend your holiday. As Christmas approaches, plan when you will arrive and how you will get here. If you don’t need to spend the holiday with anyone other than the two of you then plan a little Christmas celebration all your own.
Don’t let the fact that you’re on a vacation overshadow the gift giving. Nice as your North Myrtle Beach condo rental is you simply won’t be able to wrap it up and put it under the tree. Once your North Myrtle Beach condo rental is reserved and you’ve purchased that special gift, all that is left for you to do is plan your special day and that should be fairly easy.
Go to one of the nice grocery stores in the area and order their Christmas dinner-to-go where they provide you with enough food for a certain number of people with all the fixings. Choose the types of food you want for your Christmas dinner and simply pick them up from the grocery store when they are ready. You won’t have to cook or clean and you can really enjoy all the romantic moments of your beach holiday together.
When you don’t get stressed out around the holidays it makes such a big difference in how much you can enjoy them and have a really good time. Go ahead and make plans for a romantic Christmas vacation and plan on enjoying each other rather than getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of the day.
