A nice day trip to Georgetown or even Charleston isn't a bad idea either. If you and your family haven't taken a summer vacation yet, this is a wonderful time.

HOT... SUMMER... FUN! It's been a fantastic summer here in North Myrtle Beach - lots of sunshine, warm surf, wide beaches full of smiling faces and laughing children. We were on the beach in Windy Hill Sunday with our grands, Archer & Oscar, and had a blast watching them play in the tidal pools and frolic in the surf. Their beach fun was capped off with a frozen slushy from Maggie, our favorite push-cart vendor... a pink slushy for Archer and a blue one for Oscar, naturally.

If your family hasn't yet made it here for a beach holiday this summer, we'd really like you to come over for some fun in the sun.

Myrtle Beach Fun on a Budget

A night at the Ballpark...

just wouldn't be complete without a jumbo hot dog all the way, a bag of boiled peanuts, and a nice cold brew. Last night the Myrtle Beach Pelicans jousted the Potomac Nationals for twelve innings and managed to outlast the Nats for a 7-6 victory. The Pelicans are the Atlanta Braves' Class "A" team, have a strong local following, and are always fun to root for. A long list of current big league stars have worn the Pelican blues - Brian McCann, Jeff Francoeur, and rookie phenom Jayson Heyward just to name a few. I wonder who of this year's team will make it to the show.

It's great that our Boys of Summer prevailed last night but the real treat was just enjoying a pleasant evening out at the ball park with my wife Wrynn and some good friends from Atlanta. If you haven't been to a Pelicans game, you're missing a good time. The best seats will have you at field level right behind home plate - and they're only twelve bucks! (A bit of history for you... the seats are originals from the old Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta.)

Trying to take in as much as possible on our friends' last night at the beach, we left the game after five fun innings and headed to Broadway at the Beach to let Matt, our young companion, have some fun on the rides at the Pavilion Nostalgia Park. Taking a turn on the Giant Swing or the speedy Caterpillar is an excellent way to generate a welcome breeze on a warm evening. BTW... if you ride the Caterpillar, I suggest sitting in the inside position. That way you can be the Squisher instead of the Squishee - although getting squished wasn't all that bad.

Broadway at the Beach's boardwalk is perfect for evening strolls and is surrounded by shops of all kinds. There's a super schedule of events for the summer with concerts, fireworks and more. AND the events are family-friendly and FREE! Last night's event was one of their Sprite under the Stars concert series with Gogglez Pizano treating the crowd with popular rock & roll.

Come on down to Myrtle Beach soon and see how much fun you and your family can fit into your visit. You'll be amazed at how much there is to do.

Best of Myrtle Beach (6/8 - 6/27)

Plantations and the Past in Myrtle Beach

Enjoy the wonders and fun while exploring our history.

Almost everybody who visits the Grand Strand, from North Myrtle Beach south to Pawley’s Island knows about our magnificent beaches, challenging championship golf courses, excellent restaurants, exciting entertainment, and fantastic family fun. I’ll let you in on a little secret. There’s more!

Our area has a rich history that is often overlooked. There are scores of plantations dating back to before the Revolutionary War. Agriculture was king! Rice, indigo, and tobacco were primary exports and were grown all through the area. Many plantations had abundant river frontage and the wetlands were cleared and converted to rice fields. As you cruise the Intracoastal Waterway today, you’ll still see remnants of the old rice fields. The plantation names evoke visions of centuries past – Annandale, Arcadia, Beneventum, Chicora Wood, Friendfield, Winyah and more.

Some have been transformed into upscale golf courses and resorts. You may even see foundations of old outbuildings and graveyards as you ride the fairways at Caledonia, True Blue, Litchfield, Willbrook, and Heritage Plantations. Some, like Hopsewee Plantation, offer tours to the public. Located on the Pee Dee River south of Georgetown, it is considered a preservation rather than a restoration since the condition of its house was never permitted to lapse. Hopsewee was established in 1740 and is definitely worthy of consideration for a day trip.

The most visited plantation is Brookgreen Gardens in Murrell’s Inlet. Made up of four former plantations – Brookgreen, Springfield, Laurel Hill, and The Oaks – Brookgreen Gardens is today a National Historic Landmark. The garden’s outdoor setting has the most extensive collection of figurative sculpture by American artists in the world. You'll also find an accredited zoo, a low-country trail, historic exhibits, and archeological sites open for visitors to explore.

Oops... time to close. It's Friday and getting close to five o'clock. See more about history treks at the beach on our website’s vacation themes section.

North Myrtle Beach Dredging Project

Rental homes on the Saltwater Channels are Popular Beach Vacation Choices.

North Myrtle Beach stretches from Windy Hill on the south end up to the Cherry Grove Inlet with its scenic salt marsh and winding creeks. Just off the inlet and marsh are scores of man-made saltwater channels in between many of the avenues of Cherry Grove. Along each side of these channels, you’ll find a wide variety of waterfront residential and vacation homes. Century 21 Thomas Beach Vacations and a few other local vacation rental companies offer dozens of these comfortable cottages as vacation rental selections for families, golfers and friends. Over time, these channels accumulate silt and marsh grasses, requiring periodic cleaning or dredging.

Progress is ongoing to overcome the dredging challenges for the Cherry Grove channels. Some of the channels are no longer navigable and are in real need of dredging now. City Councilman Hank Thomas passed along some good news to us recently concerning problems and progress being made to overcome those difficulties. As the owner of Century 21 Thomas Beach Vacations and Real Estate Sales, Mr. Thomas is well aware of the necessity of keeping these channels clear and open.

North Myrtle Beach continues to pursue this badly needed dredging project for the channels. Before the project can begin, the city needs to obtain two critical and difficult permits: a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and a permit from S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). A earlier permit was obtained from DHEC for the dredging project in June, 2009. That permit was the result an application submitted in 2004 and has very restrictive guidelines such as staying 10 feet from all marsh grass and shell fish in the dredge path. The issuance of the permit was delayed 5 years from date of application during which time the conditions in the channels changed substantially. An addition 8 to 16 inches of silt has accumulated and substantial encroachment of marsh grasses and oysters have negatively impacted the potential benefits of the issued permit. These encroachments are so severe that only an approximate 40% of the dredging would be in compliance with the DHEC permit restrictions.

A bright spot in the process is that DHEC and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) have acknowledged that a permit to relocate shell fish out of the dredge path is possible. This is a major positive move in the dredge process. The next big challenge the city faces is dealing with the various agencies on the marsh grass issue. The city of North Myrtle Beach is determined to continue to move forward on this very complicated task.

There are two major issues delaying the dredging: (1) environmental and (2) ownership. East Cherry Grove Realty, LLC has claimed ownership of the channels that the city hopes to dredge. However, the State of South Carolina also claims ownership, based on a quit-claim deed it received in 1969 from Mr. C.D. Nixon, the former owner of East Cherry Grove Realty. The parties have been unable to resolve their conflicting claims leaving the issue of ownership in litigation.

On February 1, 2010, Judge Larry Hyman heard motions for summary judgment from both North Myrtle Beach and East Cherry Grove Realty. He denied both motions, basing the decision on the premise that the deeds were ambiguous in some respects and that the ambiguity presented a question of fact. Judge Hyman’s comments indicated a lesser regard of East Cherry Grove Realty’s position and even said that he knew how he would rule if he were sitting on the jury. Although he didn’t actually express exactly how he would vote, it seemed clear that Judge Hyman regarded the City’s argument as the better and that the canals were indeed owned by the State of South Carolina.

The impact of Judge Hyman’s decision that the deeds were ambiguous will allow the parties to introduce evidence of intent in the deeds. The City has contacted Ed Latimer who was with the SC Attorney General’s office in 1969 and who participated directly in the settlement negotiations with C.D. Nixon that year. Mr. Latimer was sent copies of the pertinent quit-claim deeds along with a copy of C.B. Berry’s plat that was referenced in the deeds. In a follow-up telephone conversation, Mr. Latimer indicated remembering the matter and recalling that the intent of both parties was that ownership of the canals in East Cherry Grove below the mean high water mark were vested with the State of South Carolina. Mr. Latimer’s deposition will be taken as soon as it is scheduled with the parties and their attorneys. The City’s position is based on the merits of its argument that South Carolina has title to the canals below the mean high water mark and has gained strength.

Judge Culbertson has ordered that the case be put on the trial roster for the first term of court in June, 2010. If North Myrtle Beach succeeds at trial, East Cherry Grove Realty may appeal. North Myrtle Beach has the option to petition for an expedited appeal; however, an appeal could add a year or more to the process. Century 21 Thomas joins with the City of North Myrtle Beach hoping for a speedy resolution and that the channels will all be cleared very soon.
