We knew going that there was rain in the forecast at Myrtle Beach for our entire stay. However, when does a little rain stop anyone from having a good time? Plus, we had reservations for three that was reserved just for us! It was a short trip because…well, I got a good deal on a hotel through Hilton Grand Vacations, and we used our air miles to get there. Also, my thought was that the whole trip could be an experience for Brody – starting from the airplane ride, to all the transportation rides we took to get us from one terminal to another, and not to mention the bus ride that took us the airport. This was his first experience that he’ll remember and that we will document. I mean…just look what Brody got to experience! A win-win trip in my eyes.
So, how did we enjoy our rainy Myrtle Beach trip?
We went to Ripley’s Aquarium and played with the sharks!
All three of us had fun at this place. Brody of course was enthralled with the sharks. He liked him, he didn’t like them, he liked them but mostly….he didn’t like them…they were too scary!!
Here’s my husband’s favorite part. I think we went back to this area three different times while we were at the Aquarium. Everyone was talking about how their hands felt afterwards and was wishing they could put their feet in there too!!!
Tracy and Brody spent a lot of time at the indoor pool. My husband was able to teach Brody a little more on how to swim and got to spend some one on one with him.
There’s a lot to do at Myrtle Beach. Going to the beach is just part of what you can do there. We would love to go back again when we can spend more time and of course when we can go at a better time of the year. March is really not the time to go there as it’s still considered their winter months. A few restaurants were even closed. But, like I said, I got a good deal on a hotel for two nights and didn’t want to pass it up. Here’s a few things to enjoy at Myrtle Beach.
- Planet Hollywood
- Pirate’s Cove
- Medieval Times
- Hard Rock Cafe
- Tons of putt-putt golf places there
- Any kind of restaurant you could imagine was on the Hwy 17 strip
- Three or four different Ripley’s places to visit
- A Ferris Wheel
- Easy access to the beach area
- and more
Definitely a nice place to visit at the right time. Of course the hotel room will be way more expensive then….but the best part about our trip was the fact that we scored a 7 nights vacation at Disney World for 2015. Yeah!!
We need manage to get in a walk down to the beach. On our way to the airport I said, “we’ve got to at least see the beach and touch the water” – so that’s what we did, and I managed to get a couple of pics. Jackets and all…I was determined to show Brody the waters where the sharks live. That turtle was by far the best six bucks we’d ever spent. He went everywhere with Brody.
So, all in all, Myrtle Beach is a great place to spend a vacation with the whole family. I am putting Myrtle Beach back on my bucket list to visit again…in the summer!!
