Summer vacations are here, and while the temperatures are rising, finding something to do for free may seem a little more complicated. We at North Beach Vacations want to share with you all three things that you can do for free this summer. Staying in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will allow you and your family to be able to be close to the excitement. Let’s look below at the three things you can do for free in North Myrtle Beach.
Vereen Memorial Gardens
A great place to start in the North Myrtle Beach area to enjoy some fresh air and a nice walk is at Vereen Memorial Gardens. This is located in Little River, which about a 15-minute drive from North Myrtle Beach, and admission is free. Known by many locals as a hidden secret, it’s the perfect location to enjoy nature in the area. Vereen Memorial Gardens has several wooden boardwalks and trails that are easy and good for all ages. And we have to say that the view is perfect with a gazebo overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway.
Returning to the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex is the Sounds of Summer. This is a free event on the 3rd Friday of each month and will run through mid-September from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Another concert series happening this summer into fall is Music on Main, held at the Horseshoe on Main Street from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm every Thursday. Both of these events are free to attend and be sure to bring with you beach chairs so you can sit back and listen to the bands play.
Movies Under the Stars
Another event that is happening this year that many are excited about is Movies Under the Stars. Happening at Market Common every Friday night in July is where you’ll find movies being played. This event begins at dusk and is free to attend. Be sure to bring a blanket or beach chairs with you so the whole family can enjoy it.
While many other free things you can do for free in North Myrtle Beach, we wanted to share these with you. If you haven’t booked your next vacation to stay in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals, give us a call. We look forward to seeing you and your family soon!
Are you and your family vacationing to North Myrtle Beach this year, and you’d like to try a new restaurant? Have no fear as we here at North Beach Vacations can tell you all about three new places to give a try. Staying in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will allow the whole family to stay together and close to the local places. Let’s look below what three new places you can dine at on your next vacation to the area.
Whit’s Frozen Custard of North Myrtle Beach
Vacationing at the beach is always a treat but getting to try a new custard joint is even better. Whit’s Frozen Custard recently opened up in North Myrtle Beach, and it’s one of the best places to grab some frozen custard. This isn’t like any other ice cream shop on the Grand Strand, as it’s a shop that makes frozen custard daily. They have all sorts of flavors, including offering vegan, no sugar, and gluten-free treats. What a great way to start your vacation, then by heading over to Whit’s Frozen Custard for a treat!
Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux
If your family loves to try new cuisine, then head on over to Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux located in Myrtle Beach. This restaurant has a menu as you’ve never seen on the east coast with traditional and authentic food from Louisiana. Some of the menu items that you’ll be able to find are Canjundillas, VooDoo Shrimp & Grits, Shrimp Poboy, and even their famous Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding. This is a family-friendly restaurant, and once you’ve tried it out, you will want to visit for years to come.
For many, a trip to the beach isn’t complete until they visit a seafood restaurant, and if you love seafood, we have the perfect restaurant to try. Mr. Crab recently opened up in North Myrtle Beach and has some food that is amazing and delicious. Some of the items you can find on their menu are steamed oysters, crawfish, snow crab legs, many seafood combo plates. They have a good kid’s menu with chicken nuggets, fried catfish, and some of the desserts sound mouthwatering such as red velvet cake, chocolate cake, and more. This is a restaurant that you won’t want to miss on your next trip to North Myrtle Beach.
