Travel Diary: 66 Hours In South Carolina

In May 2014 to celebrate me finally graduating from high school (I'm the last one out of my friends), some friends and I loaded up the car and headed to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina from Friday night to Sunday evening. It was SO hard to find a hotel because what we didn't know was that the weekend we chose was Biker Week. The good thing about that is that we got to see some badass bikes!

Obviously one of the things to do in Myrtle Beach is the beach. We hit the beach both days even though on the second day it opened up and poured on us. But I still got to get in the ocean for bit before the showers started. I chose my favorite white bikini from Target and my go-to Banana Republic aviator shades. It was the perfect choice for a hot May day at the beach.

There was so much to do around the beach so around lunch we took time to explore the shops, take a look at the ferris wheel, and grab a bite at the world famous hot dog stand Sam's Corner. The shops had some pretty interesting shirts to pick from, I settled for a long sleeve top with Myrtle Beach on it. The ferris wheel wasn't on our check list because we have the exact same one here in Atlanta. But the hot dogs and onion rings were DELICIOUS! I got a regular chili cheese dog, but one of my friend's opted for the loaded footlong. It looked amazing.

After eating we headed back to our hotel to nap and then we headed to the boardwalk for dinner at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. This is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at and almost every time I go I get the "Cheeseburger in Paradise", hold the tomato. The inside of this Margartiaville was so rad. Even though I'm not old enough to drink yet (only 9 months to go, but who's counting), their signature drink called "The Hurricane" comes out of the actual hurricane over the bar. This time we all decided on getting their "Kickin' Chicken Nachos" and they were SOOO good. They were literally gone in minutes.

For dessert we headed to It'Sugar and got a ton of candy and looked around at all the t-shirts they had. There was a talking Ted doll and I'm still regretting not buying it. At the time there wasn't one in Atlanta but they finally opened in Atlantic Station and it's always a struggle not to go in there and get a pound of tootsie rolls.

The trip was a whirlwind but it was SO much fun! I can't wait to go back.
