You don’t have to wait until the weather turns warm to take a day trip to Myrtle Beach. Whatever your pleasure shopping, golfing or dining, you will find an assortment of activities to keep you entertained in the spring, summer, fall and winter. My good friend, John Muuss, and I decided that we would go visit some of our favorite spots as well as explore and find some new ones. Since we have completely different interests, we can attest to the fact that there is something for everyone here.
In fact, there is so much to do here that we could stay quite busy for weeks, but we only have the day to explore. Fortunately, it is only a forty-five minute drive down Highway 17 South to hit Myrtle Beach, so we can come back as often as we like. Don’t mind looking for signsyou will know when you reach your destination. There are larger-than-life sharks, lively blinking neon signs
and a plethora of brightlycolored pirate ships that will make you feel like Blackbeard himself.
Our first stop was John’s pick. An avid golfer, John wanted to start off our day trip by visiting Discount Golf just off of Highway 17. This store and the golf ball shack across the street are two of his favorite places to gear up for a big game.
Riding down the road a little further we noticed a wedding chapel. Perhaps if your day trip with a friend is going really well, you can get hitched on your way to the Grand Strand!
Our next destination was the Tanger Outlets. For those of you who may be marathon shoppers, the shopping centers have two locations. If you do not get satisfaction from a mere 100 stores, just drive from Highway 17 a few miles onto Highway 501 and you will find another 100 that will definitely quench your thirst for consumption, and of course, at outlet
