Myrtle Beach - My Home Away from Home

Today I'm linking up for Vacation Dreaming with Holly & Amy because I LOVE VACATION!

Every year my family packs our bags & heads to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina...


In high school, we always went in April during our spring break. As we got older, we turned to August for our vacation - going during the week of both my mom & dad's birthdays. The weather is far more reliable & it actually feels like vacation when half the town isn't there with you. We used to stay on "the strip," but now we rent a beach house in Surfside Beach. We've stayed in several different houses & they've all been amazing. Private pool + 0 elevators = vacation paradise! 

I wouldn't trade those spring breaks for anything though... backpacks full of booze, making out on the beach, tanning with girlfriends all day long - amazing high school memories.

backpacking it on the beach!
This summer will be Eric & my 10th trip to MB! He has gone with us every year since he was a junior! This stat makes me feel very old, but it should also explain a bit of the connection we have to the locale. We love it so much, we even had a set of engagement photos done there....


This year will be Ella's second trip. We road tripped with her when she was 7 weeks old for last year's vacation... she loved it too :) I can't wait to see her splashing in the pool & playing in the sand. I'm sure she will grow to love MB just as much as the rest of us do. 

Ella @ Margaritaville - so tiny! 

If you've never been to MB, here is my must-do list... in picture form - because I think the pictures provide a far better description than I ever could... 

drink on the beach!
Splash in the Ocean!
Go to Crocodile Rock - a piano bar that serves the best rum cocktails ever!
Play Put-Put! There are tons of places, but they're all essentially the same. 

Go out to eat... we have tons of faves & I will gladly share them with you in an e-mail,
but this picture was taken at Margaritaville - a place we make sure to visit every year.
