Make way for Myrtle Beach

Stay

Marriott

www.marriott.com   
This is one of the most luxurious beach villas you can find on the East?Coast. After breakfast on your terrace overlooking the ocean, make the most of the on-site spa and swimming pool. The beach is minutes away, so when you’re ready to explore, walk along the shore before hitting the sun lounge.

Spend the morning

Myrtle Waves Water Park 
www.myrtlewaves.com
If you have spent enough time already soaking up the sun and feeling a little sleepy, a trip to Water Park will wake you up. Discover your inner surfer dude in the wave pool or go down the “volcano” — one of the world’s tallest tubular slides. When its time to relax again, head to the Layzee River for a water ride around the park.

Spend the afternoon

Sea fishing and Ripley’s Aquarium

At Ripley’s Aquarium, one of the grandest aquariums in the country, stop by the Rio Amazon exhibit where you’ll see piranhas or brightly colored fish from the Pacific in their “Rainbow Rock” attraction.

In the afternoon, try sea fishing. Captain Ricky Long organizes expeditions for up to 12 people. 

Spend the night

Daiquiri Dolly Parton Dixie Stampede
www.dixiestampede.com
The Dixie Stampede is for those who want total immersion in the night’s follies. Owned by Dolly Parton, the show is all about singing southern belles, jumping horses, rodeos and pirouettes along with lots of food — think barbecue ribs and corn on the cob.
