Best of Myrtle Beach (March 2011)

Myrtle Beach Area Fun for March

It may still be winter up north but it's definitely Spring at the Beach! With another weekend forecast of sunshine and temps reaching the 70s, I'm extremely happy that I live in North Myrtle Beach. I've only shoveled snow once... during a winter visit to a Connecticut friend, and once was enough. The only shoveling in my future will be prepping the ground for this year's vegetable garden or building a sand castle on the beach.

If you're tired of sucky weather (a technical term), give us a call and we'll make you a great deal on a beach getaway this spring for a couple of days, a week, or more. We have a dynamite special going on now to stretch your weekend with FREE SUNDAYS - just book Friday & Saturday and we'll give you the 3rd day FREE.

Pack a bag and head to North Myrtle Beach for some early spring fun. Some of our suggestions are:

Pushing the Limits, Volume 3 - Share an intimate evening March 3rd with Flecktones' bassist extraordinaire Victor Wooten and artist-in-residence Steve Bailey in Coastal Carolina University's Edwards Hall. Victor is a multiple Grammy Award winner and Bailey has played with Dizzy Gillespie, Jethro Tull and more. Music from their trend-setting Bass Extremes project and recent solo releases will highlight the show.

Randall Bramblett Band in Concert - One night only, March 5th, at the historic Myrtle Beach Train Depot. Join us in this casual, intimate venue for an evening of outstanding jazz, blues and rock & roll. Randall has played with Traffic, Steve Winwood, Widespread Panic, the Allman Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, and more. It's a South by Southeast Music Feast so pot-luck dinner and beverages are included with admission. A full house is anticipated and advance reservations are strongly suggested.

Dick's Last Resort Annual Mardi Gras Parade - Kicking off at 5pm, March 8th at Barefoot Landing with parties, costumes, beads, candy, music and more. A family-friendly event.

Two stages with music and entertainment, a great kids' zone with fun for the "wee ones" and a street fest with dozens of vendors and artisans. A FREE family and kid-friendly event.

64th Annual Plantation Tours - Tour pre-revolutionary and antebellum churches and plantations in Georgetown County March 25th & 26th.
