TripAdvisor Says Myrtle Beach Is Nation’s Top Summer Destination

Posted in Shopping, Attractions, Dining

Do you love Myrtle Beach? Voters at the world's largest travel site just showed us some love by voting Myrtle Beach the top place to vacation for summer 2014. GoBankingRates.com got in on the action by declaring Myrtle Beach one of the nation's most affordable and popular vacation spots.

This is a great place to come to enjoy pristine beaches, awesome shopping, and great entertainment and dining.

After a day at the beach, all those other things can be found in one location — Broadway at the Beach. At specialty shops surrounding the 23-acre Lake Broadway, you'll find everything from homemade fudge to unique wines, clothes and jewelry. More than 20 restaurants serve up everything from juicy burgers to marvelous seafood, BBQ and sushi.

If you like live performances, there's always something playing at The Palace and Legends In Concert. Up for a movie? Check out the Carmike Cinema Broadway 17 and its Big 3D theater.

You won't want to miss the spectacular sea life at Ripley's Aquarium, the amazing upside down adventure of WonderWorks, the intrigue of MagiQuest or the adrenaline-pumping go-karts at Broadway Grand Prix. If amusement rides are your thing, there are rides for adults and children at Pavilion Park. There's even a zip-line across Lake Broadway and putt-putt golf at Dragon's Lair. And when you're seeking an even bigger thrill, take flight with Helicopter Adventures and get your own bird's eye view of everything!

Broadway at the Beach is open from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. everyday throughout the summer. And, every Tuesday, there's a spectacular fireworks display over Lake Broadway at 10 p.m. Starting June 20, there are also fireworks on Friday evenings.

There's just nothing like Myrtle Beach and Broadway at the Beach for summer vacation fun!

Burger Time: The Superstar of Comfort Foods Rules In May

Posted in Dining

May is National Hamburger Month, a great time to celebrate and enjoy the juicy sandwich that we love. With the possible exception of the hot dog, no other food defines American summers.

If you've ever wondered just who invented this awesome comfort food, you're not alone. Perhaps we'll never know for sure. The U.S. Library of Congress says Louis Lassen invented the hamburger in New Haven, Conn., in 1900. But other states have laid claim to the invention including Wisconsin, Oklahoma, California, Ohio, New York and (of course) Texas.

But one thing's for sure. If you're looking for a great burger, you don't have to go any farther than Myrtle Beach. Broadway at the Beach is home to Johnny Rockets and "The Original Hamburger." That's the one-third pound burger that started it all for the restaurant in 1986. Rockets even has a cheeseburger that diners rate a 12 on a scale of 1 to 10!

If you like a little entertainment with your food, Rockets is the burger joint for you. The waitstaff of this 1950s-style diner will break into a song and dance routine when the music moves them.

Join in the fun. It's burger time!

Celebrate The 100th Anniversary Of Mother’s Day With Your Mom!

Did you know that Mother's Day turns 100 this year?

Thanks to West Virginian Anna Jarvis' love for her own mother (and some vigorous campaigning by Anna), Mother's Day was declared a national holiday in 1914.

With such an historic Mother's Day just around the corner, why not plan a legendary day for your Mom?

After a morning spent on the beach soaking up the warm sun and watching pelicans and gulls dip and dive for food, take Mom on a lunch break. Head over to one of the restaurants overlooking Lake Broadway where, together, you can relax on a deck, enjoy the soft breeze coming off the lake, and share a laugh about the antics of the ducks waddling along the lake banks.

After lunch, indulge Mom's fondness for shopping with visits to unique shops like Bijuju and Heartfire. Watch her smile as she discovers the latest styles in handbags, sorts through fascinating accessories, and examines some eye-catching jewelry.

Spice up your day together with a little outdoor competition playing mini-golf at Dragon's Lair Fantasy Golf. Or move indoors to Carmike Cinema — Broadway 17 and catch that chick-flick she's been wanting to see.

And what would a Mother's Day be without a family photo to commemorate the big day? Make this year's snapshot as memorable as your day together with a photo by Old Tyme Portraits By Treadway. Outfitted in costumes from days gone by, you'll get a shot she'll enjoy forever!

Don't let the 100th anniversary of Mother's Day go by without honoring Mom in a special way this year. Give her the gift of time with you at Broadway at the Beach, and make Mother's Day memories that she'll keep in her heart forever!
