Catching Waves in Myrtle Beach

Best Of IgoUgo

Overview

Quote:
We stayed in the Surfside Beach area, which is actually south of Myrtle Beach. We enjoyed this location, because we were somewhat removed from the summer congestion right in Myrtle Beach, but near enough to enjoy all that Myrtle Beach has to offer. The beach in Surfside was very nice and clean. The waves were just perfect for boogie boarding. Parking was not a problem, even during the busiest season. Our family really liked the fabulous mini golf courses in the area. Of course, there are also many wonderful full sized courses. My husband played on the Deer Track course in Surside and found it to be quite challenging. We also enjoyed a salt marsh tour in Murrell's inlet and the Riple...Read More

The Melting Pot

Restaurant

Quote:
The Melting Pot was our favorite restaurant in the Myrtle Beach area. It was rated as one of the most romantic restaurants in town, but it was also suitable for children. Our kids - ages six and nine - absolutely loved the experience. The fondue burner was built right into your table. For starters, we chose the cheddar cheese fondue. Our waiter made it right in front of us. It was excellent - served with a basket of bread, veggies, and sliced apples. Then, our main course was a variety of meats which we cooked in a tasty broth. They had several sauces for dipping the cooked meat. The grande finale was a fabulous chocate fondue. We dunked strawberries, pineapple, bananas, brownie chunks, ch...Read More

Attraction | "Captain Dick's Salt Marsh Adventure"

This 2 1/2 hour trip through the salt marsh of Murrell's Inlet, SC is a fun and educational experience. There is a marine biologist on board who talks about the marine life in the salt marsh. Then, they bring up nets and let the passengers handle the various sea creatures in touch tanks. We saw sea stars, crabs, clams, sea urchins, and more. There is also a chance for fishing and a walk along a secluded beach. Everyone from grandma and grandpa to our kids enjoyed this boat tour.
