We just returned from a nice week in Myrtle Beach. After 6 days of perfect 80 degree weather, NYC’s 50 degrees was a shock to the system. But I’m happy to have a whole weekend ahead to get through a busy to do list, attend a baby shower, prepare for the work week, unpack and cuddle with Pettitte.
Myrtle Beach is a place my family frequently went growing up. I always had a great time and have many fond memories playing in the ocean and mini golfing. MB gets a bad rep and I have to admit that at first I was a little embarrassed to say I was returning as an adult. That said, it was much nicer than I expected or remembered, and I see why it’s a great place to go with kids. We spend the week with my nieces and nephew and had an action packed week of beach, pool, and other activities.
Our trip started at LGA in a terminal with very few enticing dining options. I had wanted to do a post on healthy airport eats, but offerings came up pretty short. We eventually stopped at the one cafe in the terminal.
I ordered a coffee and the organic grapefruit. A few minutes later, I learned that they were out of grapefruit. Oh well.
We made it to Myrtle Beach and check into our hotel. We had a pretty spacious one bedroom suite, that felt enormous by NYC standards.
Then we headed to Market Commons, which is a combination of retail, restaurants and condos. It’s actually really cute and we ended up spending quite a bit of time there over the course of the week. I recommend Nacho Hippo and Tulepo Honey for food.

After some pool time, we went to Broadway on the Beach for dinner.
We ended up at Landry’s, which had painfully slow and disinterested service, but decent food.
The next morning we went for a run on the beach. One of three that week, all lovely.
A highlight of the trip was a daytrip to Charleston. It’s such a pretty southern city.
Lunch at Magnolias was delicious. I’d love to do a food tour of Charleston next time.
The rest of the week involved golf, mini golf, shopping and beach time.
It was great to have some family time, but I’m never sad to return home to NYC.
I hope you’re having a great weekend.
