Restaurant | "Damon's"
Damon's is an extraordinary restaurant with a very beautiful setting, because it's right on the beach, it's perfect for a beautiful waterfront dining experience! This is absolutely my favorite restaurant in Myrtle Beach. The ambience here is just great! When the weather is warmer, sitting outside is the best choice! Your table will be right next to the scenic Atlantic Ocean! This is the only restaurant in Myrtle Beach that offers this dining fabulous experience. I don't know why more beach town restaurant shouldn't be this way. It is so relaxing to listen to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore while enjoying a great meal. The atmosphere is truly wonderful. The only thing between you and the water is the vast expanse of sand with beachgoers, relaxing on towels or chairs, swimming or just walking by. I like the people-watching part just as much as watching the water, and there is a lot of action to watch! You can also choose an inside table and still have the ocean and beach view, but it just won't be the same without the sounds, and you'll have an obstructed view.
The atmosphere inside is unique and relaxing as well though. The decor inside is kind of rustic, with lots of wood, on the floor and walls. The food here is delicious too. The ribs are an excellent choice. You can also get a nice steak and potato meal. I had the steak with a baked potato and it was really good! If you are there after dinner, the bar area is nice for drinks, entertainment and meeting people too. Even if you don't go out to eat anywhere else, or if you are only going out to eat one time during your vacation, Damon's is a MUST for your Myrtle Beach trip.

Barefoot Landing is an upscale shopping complex that has a rather nice relaxing atmosphere. It has a rustic, nautical decor which makes it nice to walk around and enjoy the atmosphere even if you are not there to shop. The walkways are made of wood to look like a pier, so it gives that beachy feeling as you listen to the wood creak with each footstep.
There are also many unique but expensive shops to see if you like shopping, browsing, or window shopping. The window shopping and browsing are free, of course, and with most of the prices here, that is what we did! Most of the shops offer unique items at a price to match. Many of the shops had a beachy theme with rustic nautically decor or nautical things for sale. Not all the shops were pricey though, so you may be able to find the unique treasure at a reasonable price, ready to take home with you.
There is a nice big lake in the middle of the complex with a long wooden bridge going across the middle. You can buy fish food from the little gumball type vending machine. It's like little pebbles of dog food, but the fish love it! We had the most fun watching and feeding the fish! A school of big carp live in the lake and are always waiting for food to descend upon them. When they see people on the bridge, they come over to see if there will be food. When the food starts landing in the water they swarm over each other to get it, even jumping out of the water and laying on top of each other. You can tell they are used to being fed.
There are several restaurants that make good choices for lunch or dinner options, some have a seafood theme, some have outdoor dining. It is nice for a relaxing afternoon or evening activity. Some offer nighttime entertainment.
