Hidden Treasures of Myrtle Beach
Posted by Hope Robbins | Friday, April 6, 2018

Finally, we are seeing sunny and 70 something! Spring is finally arrived and hopefully, will stick around. I don’t know about you, but this beautiful sunny weather has us ready to plan some beach days. Since winter has finally been shown the door, we are gearing up for a fabulous season with a lot of visitors taking advantage of beach time now. Even though it isn’t officially vacation season, Myrtle Beach is still a warm, friendly place to visit anytime.

Quite a few folks that come down this time of year to enjoy the quiet beaches and less traffic also like to “live like a local” while they are here. Along with that, they prefer to dine like one as well. As you know, Myrtle Beach has no shortage of restaurant options, but there are also some hidden treasures that are best known to the locals.
