Myrtle Beach is an easy drive from Charleston, WV! If you’re planning on a road trip to Myrtle Beach this summer, here are some fun things to do along the way before you reach the sun, surf, and sand.

  • South of The Border. Just past the North Carolina/South Carolina border on Highway 501 is this one-of-a-kind roadside attraction. It is known for its clever signs, a kiddie ride park, reptile lagoon, and so much more.
  • Myrtle Beach Visitors Center. Find one of these along your route and pick up a handful of money-saving coupons to use during your trip.
  • Seafood Capital of the World. Make a detour to Calabash, North Carolina and enjoy some deliciously fried shrimp and fish. There are also numerous gift shops.
  • Georgetown Harborwalk. Head just south of Myrtle Beach to Georgetown. Here you’ll find some of the most beautiful views of the ocean along with great restaurants and shops.
  • Sweetgrass Basket Stands. You’ll find these iconic basket stands along many of the routes heading into Myrtle Beach. These hand-woven baskets represent one of the oldest forms of West African art in the country.

These are just a few of the most unusual and fun ways to spend your time while on a road trip to Myrtle Beach. What are some of your favorite Myrtle Beach destinations?

Holiday Decoration Safety Tips

Each year, many more accidents are caused by holiday decoration related hazards than one might image. To keep your home and family safe, be sure to check out these holiday decoration safety tips:

  • Though many artificial trees are fire-resistant, plenty are not. And, of course, real trees are highly flammable—be sure to keep your tree away from the fireplace.
  • Keep your real tree hydrated throughout the season, as a dry tree is much more likely to catch fire.
  • Double check your lights from last year, and throw away any lights that appear to have significant damage, especially if they have frayed wires.
  • Keep any holiday candles on a secure base so that they are much less likely to get knocked over.
  • And lastly, when using a ladder to decorate outside, always have a spotter to watch out for you!
