At last the weather is warming up, the plants are springing to life and the beach is calling my name. Relaxation, a little bit of sun and quality time with friends and family. A vacation in the summer months is one of our most cherished experiences. Sand castles and amusement parks. Summer vacation means lazy, lingering days and free of responsibility.
Myrtle Beach, a city and vacation destination on South Carolina’s Atlantic coast, is the hub of the Grand Strand, a 60-mile string of beaches. It’s known for its celebrity-designed golf courses and brown-sugar-colored beach. Along its beachfront boardwalk are arcades, souvenir stands and restaurants, as well as the old-fashioned Family Kingdom Amusement Park and the SkyWheel, one of the country’s tallest Ferris wheels.
