If you are looking for a place to relax during the summer in America, Myrtle Beach is a suitable place. It is a cozy place that has a range of white sandy beach that is up to 60 kilometers, stretching all the way from Little River to Georgetown. Summer in Myrtle Beach usually begins with the Sun Fun Festival, which consisted of various events such as shopping, golfing, nightclubs, restaurants, parks, fishing, and musical theater. Myrtle Beach Sun shines on average 215 days per year, so make sure you bring sunscreen while visiting there.
Many ways to enjoy a summer holiday with the family. For those who live in North America, the beach is still a favorite destination. Besides being costly, all ages can enjoy. Not long ago, my family vacation to Myrtle Beach, located in the state of South Carolina. The day wore when we were entering the beach area. Our lodging, Avista Resort, despite being right on the coast, but is about 45 minutes away from the ‘entrance’.
Throughout the eye can see, the pine trees loomed high. On the shoulder of the road, huge billboards that offer a variety of promotional entertainment packages, as if to welcome us with aggressive, ranging from skydiving activities, restaurants, various performances, beachwear stores, up ads on specific radio broadcast travel information. For tourists for the first time here, the ranks of the billboards can provide information on the activities that can be done here.
Traffic conditions towards the inn looks quite crowded. Moreover, today’s ongoing “Biker Week”, an annual gathering of lovers of big motor in Myrtle Beach. No wonder if the road condition is getting crowded for the big bike owners from around the state in the Americas to Canada gathered here. Various models of the big bike look passing along the way.
Although use navigation, we had time to stray while seeking Avista Resort. Apart from the traffic was busy, the city is divided into two areas, Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, which both use the street name and the same number. So when typing the keyword “North” on the GPS, the navigator will bring us into Myrtle Beach and not to North Myrtle. Finally, we found the address in question after calling the Avista Resort. Turns out we were not the first visitors who experience this case.
Avista Resort is located in the northern part of Myrtle Beach. Each unit resembles a condo with a different number of bedrooms. The unit we have chosen consists of three bedrooms, living room, dining room, two bathrooms is equipped with Jacuzzi. Rates stay per night in this place ranges from $ 70 – $ 200. Few tips when booking, try to please contact the travel agent. Usually they will give you a price that is slightly cheaper than the one mentioned in the official website of the inn.
After unpacking is complete, we immediately drove to the coast with the children. We sit in the sand while hunting shark’s teeth on the coast, running around chasing the waves, collect shells unique, or bury dead jellyfish washed up on the coast, being walked by the pedestrian. All around us there are many visitors who fly kites, swimming, and surfing. There also were fishing or spend their textbooks while sunbathing on the beach.
Around the coast there are also many attractions and public facilities that can be enjoyed, such as amusement and water park, golf courses, malls, fresh and salt water fishing, and the culinary center.
For those of you who vacation with your family, it’s good to stay and spend time in the area of North Myrtle Beach. Therefore, the area is not as busy as Myrtle Beach that the majority of visitors are students who incidentally partying. In the northern region, children can play freely without concern on many pedestrians. In the northern region there are also beach houses that can be an alternative place to stay for those who come with a large group.
After building sand castles with the kids and wait destroyed by the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, we do a ritual to fill a small bottle labeled Myrtle Beach that we have prepared with sand and small shells to take home as a souvenir. The size is not large, but enough to be used as ornaments as well as a reminder of experience in Myrtle Beach.
After a long time playing on the beach, we went to enjoy the pool and hot tub which is one of the facilities in the resort. In addition, there is also “lazy river” is deliberately designed for children that are long and stretched around the pool. Here, the swimming pool is divided into two areas, indoor and outdoor.
Imperceptibly, the time is nearing 10:00 pm. After quite a long road trip and the activities that we do today, we decided to go back to the room to rest and get ready for tomorrow. Before bed, I accidentally opened the door of our room’s balcony are located on floors 14 to hear the sound of the waves chasing each other in the Atlantic ocean.
