Spring Break Myrtle Beach

Overview

Our trip to Myrtle Beach was an exciting and relaxing getaway for March Break. We drove from Ontario to Myrtle Beach South Carolina, only stopping for gas, food and washroom facilities. The trip takes between 16 - 19 hours depending on how long or frequent the stops are. We had reservations at Camelot by the Sea and had no problems checking in. The hotel is very large, all the rooms are facing the ocean and parking is very close to your suite or hotel room. The rooms are comfortable, neat and clean except for the carpet and sofas. Our view from the balcony overlooks the beach/ocean and we had amazing sunrises!. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We stayed in Myrtle Beach for seven days and enj...Read More

The Camelot is a very large hotel with all rooms facing the ocean. We saw the pictures on the internet and decided to book last minute. The price was $800.00 for 7 nights, one bedroom with 2 double beds. This was during March break. When we got to the hotel, our check in was fast and painless. We had a long drive and welcomed the speedy service. The hotel appeared to be an older hotel. The one bedroom suite was very basic. Included in the rooms are a fridge, stove, microwave and TV. Also included was a small table with four chairs, a sofa and love seat. The sofa and love seat could also use a bit of stem cleaning. There was also a small size bathroom which was clean. The room could use a fresh coat of...Read More

Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse

Restaurant | "Rioz"

Quote:
RIOZ Brazilian Steakhouse is an extraordinary steakhouse without any questions. Many people say it is their best experience, but to us a little restaurant called Dunbars near Peterborough is definitely the best. Another review for another time. When one enters the Rioz it is quite beautiful, big, dark and very busy. Our reservation was for 5:30 and the place was packed already for dinner. Rioz opens up at 4:00 daily. To begin with there is a salad and seafood buffet bar and it is amazing. The best salad bar we have ever encountered. The price is $35.00 per person for the buffet and it includes the salad bar and dinner. Desert and drinks are extras. Well this was no ordinary dinner as the first cours...Read More

Brookgreen Gardens an amazing place to visit. The garden used to be one of the plantation in the earlier days. It is located right on Highway 17 and about half an hour away from where we were staying which was Ocean Blvd. in the south side of Myrtle Beach. It is relatively easy to find for those who are visiting and is new to the area. The first thing one notices as one enter the gardens is the peaceful setting/feeling one gets. It is truly an nature/art lover's paradise. The sculptures comes in different shapes, sizes and are very detailed. The setting of these sculptures are very naturalistic. To see the sculptures in its natural setting is quite astonishing as one will think that these sculptures ...Read More
