Gulf Stream Cafe

Restaurant

Quote:
We arrived at Gulf Stream Cafe a little early. We went upstairs to the deck for a glass of wine. As we sat watching the sunset over the Inlet and listening to the live Jazz, it felt like heaven.

Our table was ready and our drinks met us there. The service and food were both outstanding.

We went back up to the deck for dessert and more Jazz under the stars.

A fabulous and memorable evening.

Thoroughbreds is an intimate and elegant dining eperience. Cozy little candlelit tables, a stone fireplace and great food make this an excellent choice for a special dinner. We finished the evening with the best Tiramisu I have ever had.

We went to Rossi's Piano Bar, eighty eights, for happy hour. Drinks and appetizers around a coffee table with friends. The pianist is great fun and plays requests. We moved our party to our table. I wanted to try their Swordfish Mediterranean. Every year the restaurants in Myrtle Beach put out a cookbook of their favorite recipes. The cookbook is called "Taste of Myrtle Beach" and you should definitely look for it at fine restaurants around town. The swordfish was Rossi's entry in last year's cookbook and this was the first chance I had to try it. It was fantastic and it is suprisingly simple to make. Try it out then see how you compare.

We always have a great time at the Conch Cafe. A fun place to hang out after a day at the beach. You will have cravings for the Conch Fritters long after you leave the Grand Strand.

Liberty Steakhouse is located in Broadway at the Beach. After a long day of shopping and a visit to Ripley's Sea Aquarium and the Butterfly Pavillion a steak and a beer were definitely in order.

This microbrewery is a great place for dinner and you can continue the party on Broadway's Bourbon St.

Over 40 thrillings rides, games, shops, snack bars and an on-site restaurant all packed into 11 acres!

This steel/wooden roller coaster provides a design that incorporates a wide variety of thrilling elements! After climbing to a height of 110 feet, the coaster slowly inches its way above the high point before plummeting down a 53-degree, gut-wrenching first drop, ultimately reaching the force of three G's. Coaster fans, you need to experience The Hurricane Category 5!

Waccatee Zoo

Attraction

Quote:
The Waccatee Zoo is a woodland setting with a lovely nature walk along the river. It is a lot of fun for the whole family. You can spend the whole day in the shade when the SC sun has gotten you all a little to red for another day at the beach.

The area boasts over 200 fantastic and challenging  golf courses and has been listed in "Golf Digest" as one of the top ten golf destinations in the United States. In 1999, the TPC of Myrtle Beach opened, and Tom Watson arrived on the SENIOR PGA TOUR. A year later, the man met the course when the TPC played host to the 2000 SENIOR TOUR Championship. Watson fired a tournament record 270 to edge John Jacobs for the victory. Find out a little more about a few of Myrtle Beach's other courses....Read More
