Attractions

You’ll never run out of things to do while visiting the Grand Strand! You can experience heart-pounding water park slides, parasail over the blue Atlantic Ocean, play a round of miniature golf, or cruise the Intracoastal Waterway on Jet Skis. If you’re feeling adventurous, you may charter a sailboat or take a deep sea fishing trip to the Gulf Stream. The Myrtle Beach area offers a little something for everyone, and more importantly, provides experiences the whole family can enjoy. Dinner theaters abound along the Grand Strand from the knights of the roundtable at Medieval Times to pirates singing, dancing and entertaining you at Pirates Voyage, both offering exceptional meals for the entire family. If award winning theater with incredible star studded musicians, vocalists and dancers are more your style, don’t miss a visit to the Carolina Opry, a Myrtle Beach phenomenon for over 25 years. Or step out to Celebration Music Theatre, the newest addition to the Grand Strand entertainment venue to hear celebrity impersonations like Tina Turner, Garth Brooks and Elvis. Whether you feel like dancing, catching a stand-up comedy act or listening to handclapping, foot-stomping music at one of our world-class entertainment centers, you’ll find endless choices for a perfect evening. And of course, you’ll want to drop by a nightspot where the shag (the official state dance) is the dance of choice. There’s fun to be found along the Grand Strand. Enjoy!

Set on 2500 acres just south of Murrells Inlet, Huntington Beach State Park offers wide pristine beaches, sea breeze camping, fishing in the surf or from the jetties as well as some of the finest bird watching on the coast. The Park is also home to Atalaya, the former summer home of Archer and Anna Huntington, who left the property, and adjoining Brookgreen Gardens, as their legacy. Nature lovers also will enjoy the park’s Environmental Education Center and wide variety of programming, including the chance to see loggerhead turtles and other endangered plant and animal species up close. The park’s freshwater lake is a sure-fire place to see alligators and sometimes even a mink or two. Kayaking tours are available, as well as birding expeditions led by experienced birders. Art lovers, meanwhile, flock by the thousands to the prestigious, juried Atalaya Arts and Crafts Festival held in and around the castle each September. This year, the Festival will be held September 23-25. Daily admission is $6 for adults and a multi-day pass is available for $10.

Opened in 1935, Myrtle Beach State Park is South Carolina’s oldest park. Set on the south end of Myrtle Beach, this park holds one of South Carolina’s last stands of easily accessible, oceanfront maritime forest. The 312 acre site was donated by Myrtle Beach Farms in 1934 and was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a New Deal Program created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The program was designed to provide employment during the Great Depression while addressing national needs in conservation and recreation. Many of the buildings built in the 1930s are still in use today. Visitors have a wide variety of activities to enjoy, including camping, a fishing pier full of anglers and a nature programs for all ages. Throughout the summer children’s programs are available that give young nature lovers a chance to learn more about dolphins, sea turtles and the abundant bird and plant life that grace the leafy park. Most are free with park admission. For more information about Myrtle Beach State Park, call 843-238-5325 or visit www. southcarolinaparks.com.

Hot Dogs

– A Summer Classic

Nothing says summer like a hot dog – one of America’s favorite foods – grilled at home or purchased at one of the many great eateries along the Grand Strand. Most hot dogs are eaten during the summer; from Memorial Day to Labor Day Americans typically consume 7 billion hot dogs or 818 hot dogs every second during that period. On Independence Day alone, 150 million hot dogs are cooked and eaten, enough to stretch from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles over five times. Without a bun, a hot dog is just another sausage, and it’s not known when this perfect combination was introduced. Charles Feltman, a German immigrant butcher, opened the first Coney Island hot dog stand in Brooklyn, New York, in 1867, and his dogs were a hit – the business sold 3,684 hot dogs in milk rolls during its first year in business. Every region has its own favorite hot dog toppings, and in the South hot dogs are topped with chili and slaw, after slathering on the mustard…oh, and don’t forget the onions!

Carolina Chili From Desperation Entertaining! by Beverly Mills and Alicia Ross Makes 1 quart 1 1/4 pounds extra-lean ground beef (use extra-lean ground beef to avoid greasy chili) 1 large onion (about 1 cup chopped) 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste 1/2 cup ketchup 1 tablespoon chili powder 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 1 teaspoon cider vinegar or distilled white vinegar 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (optional) Place the beef and 2 cups of water in a 4 1/2-quart Dutch oven or soup pot over high heat. Bring the water to a boil while peeling and coarsely chopping the onion. Add the chopped onion to the beef. When the water boils, reduce the heat to medium. Stir to begin breaking up the meat. Add the tomato paste, ketchup, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, salt and pepper, if using. Stir well until the tomato paste has dissolved and the meat is mostly broken up. Continue to cook the chili at a slow boil, stirring about every 5 minutes or so, until the mixture is thick, about 15 minutes. As the mixture thickens, you may need to reduce the heat to medium-low or low to prevent sticking. 56 • Check out our e-book @ www.strandmagazine.com

Visit Historic

Conway

Overlooking the dark waters of the picturesque Waccamaw River, the city of Conway offers an appealing mixture of small-town friendliness, modern conveniences, and Old South charm. It is one of the oldest towns in America, established in 1733, in what was then South Carolina’s colonial frontier. Today, Conway is a pleasant, riverside town of quiet neighborhoods, historic structures and moss-shrouded live oak trees. For a closer look at our nation’s history, visit the Horry County Museum, housed in a converted Post Office, adjacent to the downtown area. Conway’s historic district is filled with many lovely older homes including the stately Bryan House on Main Street that was built in 1912. Rivertown History and Haunts offers walking tours through the downtown area led by guides in period costume. The Conway Crawl is held on the first and third Thursday night of each month, when shops downtown are open until 8 pm, featuring a variety of entertainment including live music, classic car shows, ice cream socials and sidewalk sales. A short drive from Myrtle Beach, Conway has something for everyone – whether you’re more comfortable strolling along the River Walk or kayaking down the Waccamaw! For more information, call 843-248-1700 or visit www.VisitConwaySC.com.
