Early September in North Myrtle Beach

My wife and I are on our annual holiday to the USA from England. We will be in North Myrtle Beach for one week staying at the Barefoot Resort. Please could you advise of the best attractions to see. Your help, advice and any information would be appreciated.

You will be right beside Barefoot Landing, an entertainment, shopping, restaurant complex. Lots to do there. http://bflanding.com/ (there is no path or boardwalk from the resort to the Landing, you have to either walk along a road (not busy) or drive. Pretty sure there is a shuttle too. Further to the south in Myrtle Beach is Broadway at the Beach which is basically the same thing as Barefoot Landing, just laid out a little different with a few more shops and resturants. Mini golf is all over the area, Head down to Murrells Inlet once or twice for dinner along the Marshwalk. Maybe go to Brookgreen Gardens while down in that area too. Gets highly recommended on here. http://www.brookgreen.org/

You do know that Barefoot Resort is not ocean front. It is a couple of miles inland. They do have a shuttle that will take you to the ocean though. That time of year the rates for hotels will have dropped. Might be worth it to find a hotel on the ocean...since you are coming that far. Nothing like waking up in the morning and seeing that ocean right off your balcony! ;)

Have fun!!

Thank you for your reply. It is unfortunate we are set back from the sea but not a great problem. We were aware of this when we booked our Timeshare accommodation. Prior to arriving at North Myrtle Beach we are driving from Helen, Georgia after spending a week touring around there. We will be stopping overnight at a place yet to be decided. Any advice or assistance to help us plan our week in North Myrtle Beach would be appreciated. Peter

Just a bit disappointed nobody has come up with any suggestions. I would hope if you were coming to England I would be doing my best to offer advice which would make your holiday more fulfilling.

Best attraction for me is the beach. To get more responses, however, you may want to be more specific on type of attractions you are interested in. To some, the shows are the best attractions, others, shopping, others, water sports, others, aquariums, others, golf, others, putt-putt, etc, etc, etc......

NMB for the most part in my opinion is not a "attraction" destination in itself. However is has a ton of things to do based on your interests. You have the beach, sailing, fishing(offshore,inshore and from piers), rentals of watercraft from jet skis to boats. There is a Casino Boat that leaves from Little River. Countless mini-golf locations. As Beachlady mentioned above there are some good trips you can take. Like to Murrells Inlet and enjoy the Marshwalk. Explore Pawleys Island, Brookhaven Gardens. You are close to Barefoot landing which is very large complex of shops, restaurants connected by boardwalks for a good morning or afternoon of strolling and ducking in and out of places. Broadway at the Beach is 7 or 8 miles down the road which is fairly similar but unique enough that both places are worth a visit. There are 80 some golf courses within a 45 minute drive. You can head north and do a day trip to Wilmington NC and explore that area. These are just things that pop to mind and there are countless other things "to do". If you could narrow down your interests a little bit, others and I can be a bit more specific to what might suit your taste!

Gosh....I thought I made suggestions.

On the way to Myrtle Beach, you could stop at Pearl Fryar's Topiary Garden. I've always wanted to go there after seeing a great documentary about this man. It is right on your way.

This link has pretty much all the "must-do's" in the Myrtle Beach area. (some of which have already been mentioned). Read thru the whole link...great advice there.
