Summer is the best time for beaches, concerts, and traveling. Lucky for us (and them) members vampirefan made the most of a recent summer weekend and combined all three of our favorite summer things in Suzie and Nick's Rock and Roll Beach Weekend. "When our friends in the Motley Crue/Poison tribute band called us to tell us they were playing at the House of the Blues and invited us to come and see them, we decided to go down and make a weekend of it"

Their trip to Myrtle Beach included the venue in which their friends were playing, The House of Blues. "The House of the Blues has been around since the original venue in Cambridge MA in 1992. It was inspired by the music and cuisine of the rural south. Today there are 13 House of the Blues throughout the country. The House of the Blues is both a concert venue as well as a restaurant on the premises. There is also a House of the Blues Foundation which helps keep music and the arts in the school system"

Nick and Suzie also dove into Ripley's Aquarium. "
The aquarium is one of the most visited sites in South Carolina. More than 10,000 creatures from all over the world and 350 species called this place home. he Living Gallery is a collection of amazing sea creatures including some very strange, unusual, yet beautiful creatures. Marvel at octopi, sea anemones, coral reefs, the delicate weedy sea dragon, and spider crabs."

And when traveling to Myrtle Beach "...from spring until Labor Day, advanced reservations are highly suggested. During the summer holidays, you pretty much better have reservations made months in advanced. Have a smart phone? Then Myrtle Beach has an app for you. And it’s free!"
