Stretching along the Grand Strand in South Carolina, Myrtle Beach is home to nearly 60 miles of sandy beaches. The combination of sun and surf attracts millions of vacationers each year, but the area maintains its down-home charm while catering to visitors' every whim. More than 100 golf courses and over 300 outlet stores provide entertainment away from the water's edge, but with an average of 215 days of sunshine each year, boating and sunbathing rank high on any family's vacation to-do list.
Gulfstream Cafe: Step off the beaten tourist path and drop in on the Gulfstream Cafe, which is known for its amazing views. Situated between the ocean and Murrells Inlet, you can sit outside on the deck of the two-story building and watch the sun set over the water while you relax with a glass of wine and oysters on the half shell or low country crab cakes. The eatery is popular among locals, and the Carolina Coastal cuisine is sure to have you coming back for more. Drop by for Sunday brunch, when the Southern-style biscuits and gravy are on the house and the Bloody Mary drinks flow freely.
