Thank You For Broadway At The Beach’s TripAdvisor Certificate Of Excellence Award

TripAdvisor reviews are the "go to" source for those planning a vacation, choosing a restaurant or heading to an attraction. When a property receives a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence two years in a row, it's both outstanding and inspiring.

Recipients of the award are "determined by traveler reviews and ratings on TripAdvisor." To earn one, a property has to "consistently impress travelers" — so much so that travelers are moved to write a review about the experience.

It's truly inspiring to read the many positive reviews that catapulted Broadway to its Excellence award.

Some reviews confirmed that you come to Broadway because of the "Great food choices. Great shops. Rides for the little ones. Mini golf and water sports. Great break from the beach."

We were especially thrilled to see reviews raving that "Broadway at the Beach is my family's all-time favorite place to visit when we are at MYRTLE BEACH!!!! We had dinner at Hard Rock and Margaritaville. Explored WonderWorks, ziplined, shopped, had a wine tasting, ate pralines, fed the fish, and people watched. Favorite place besides the beach."

Those kinds of reviews earned us a Certificate again this year. But, more importantly, they demonstrated that you think we're delivering a great experience.

And knowing that is the best award of all.

Enjoy The Ocean In Motion At Myrtle Waves Water Park

If your family is like most, they've been planning a trip to Myrtle Beach all winter long. They can't wait to sit on the beach in the warm Carolina sun.

After you've enjoyed the beach for a few days, why not go for a change of pace? Still want to be able to splash in cool water and listen to the sound of waves as you sit in a cabana sipping a frosty drink? Just head over to Myrtle Waves Water Park.

When it opens for the season on Saturday, May 16, the park will be entering its 30th year of providing guests with the some of the best parts of a beach vacation. There's a 20,000 square foot Ocean in Motion Wave Pool that produces seaside-like surf with waves over 4 feet high.

There's also a world of adventure at Myrtle Waves. Climb 10 stories up and challenge the world's tallest tubular slides. Dare to detour on the Riptide Rockets. Take on Snake Mountain's serpentine chutes in an inner tube. Feel how time seems to stop when you body slide out of the Super Chute suspended in air, then drop dramatically into the pool below.

If you need a break from all that excitement, there's the Layzee River where you can drift in an inner tube at a leisurely 3mph pace winding throughout the park.

For the littlest kids, there's Bubble Bay, designed specially with toddlers in mind. It's 7,000 square feet with water depths from six to 18 inches, and offers three gently cascading water umbrellas and numerous bubble jets to keep the tikes entertained.

Next time your family yearns for a fresh water adventure, join the thousands of families who've enjoyed Myrtle Waves Water Park for three decades.

Spending the day there will give your whole family reason to celebrate.

Five Facts To Share With Your Mom On Mother’s Day

Mothers are our biggest cheerleaders, always there to back us up and support us. This Sunday, as you celebrate Mom, you can also dazzle her with your knowledge of little-known facts about her special holiday.

You know she'll be proud.

After several false starts in the 1800s, Mother's Day finally made it onto the roster of national holidays in 1914. President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation officially establishing the second Sunday in May as national Mother's Day. Today, official Mother's Days are celebrated in about 50 countries — but not always in May.

The first Mother's Day cards were designed and sold by Hallmark in the early 1920s. Today, about 130 million cards are sent each Mother's Day — more than at any other time of the year, with the exception of Christmas and Valentine's Day.

Flowers are also big business for Mother's Day. Interestingly, roses are not the most popular flowers. That distinction goes to the humble carnation.

Today's American families often live far apart, so it's no surprise that a lot of folks reach out to their mothers via phone on Mother's Day. Last year, approximately 122 million phone calls were made to moms throughout the U.S.

Celebrating Mom's special day is important to us. Mother's Day is the third most popular holiday in the world, second to only Christmas and Easter. So make your plans for May 10 now.

Mother's Day is the perfect day to treat Mom to a day of shopping, food and fun at Broadway at the Beach. Challenge Mom to some mini golf at Dragon's Lair — and let her win. Through Monday, May 11, Moms get one round of golf for free. Or stop by Old Tyme Portraits By Treadway and get a photo taken together. She'll treasure this forever.

If Mom loves jewelry, surprise her with a Brighton necklace and bracelet from Gemini Boutique. As an added bonus, you'll get a pair of earrings free. She'll be impressed with this lovely gift set. For Moms who love the Pandora jewelry line, you'll want to stop by The Mole Hole. While supplies last, there are a variety of charms and a gift set made especially for Mom. With inscriptions like "first my mother" and "always my friend,"and "always in my heart," she'll know just how much she means to you.

Of course you can't go wrong if you spoil Mom by picking up the tab for a nice lunch or dinner. Over some scrumptious food, casually charm her with your grasp of five fun facts about Mother's Day. She'll probably assume you took the time to find such nuggets just to see her smile. And, you'll make her happy.
