Made decision--No PCB--Heading to Myrtle Beach, SC

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are mid 30's. Married 12 yrs. 2 Children, 5yr old & 9yr old girls.
We live in Alabama, about 30 mins south of Birmingham.

Our Summer Vacation has always been at Panama City Beach, Florida (since I was a baby & I am carrying on the Tradition). Due to Oil Spill, we have decided to check out the Atlantic Beaches (we have only been to Gulf of Mexico Beaches, Caribbean Islands, & Mexico).
Family Vacation: We like to be kinda in middle or right by attractions like: mini golf; go-carts; arcades; eating places; etc. - & Myrtle Beach seemed to look like a wonderful place to explore. It was rated in the top 5 of fodors and travel channel top destinations! So I know the beaches and ocean is very different on the Atlantic side, but just couldn't take a chance on the oil spill hitting Panama City Beach, FL.

So on one hand I am upset, but what a great time to check out a place that you would have never wanted to visit--so I am getting so excited.

We are going to drive straight to Myrtle & Check In (about 8hr drive) at the Landmark Resort on Myrtle Beach (Awsome Resort; Great Rreviews: & Reasonable Prices). We will then stay for 5 nights and check-out and drive down the coast on hwy 17. Don't know how far-would like to stop at Charleston and spend the night. Then drive to Hilton Head and maybe Savannah and head back to home sweet home. We have 7 days or 6-depending on if we need Sunday to rest before work on Monday.

So check out the SC, Myrtle Beach tourist board. Tons of Lodging/Accomodations and Attractions. And check out the Landmark Resort-just one of the many nice Resorts. (Check out TripAdvisor.com for reviews on hotels/Resorts on Myrtle Beach-this helped us)!!!!!

Hope this helps other fellow pcb vacationers that just can't take the chance on the oil spill.
