In mid-April, my mom came to visit me in North Carolina. Her bestie Barbara has a house near Chapel Hill, so I met my mom at the Raleigh airport and we spent two lovely weeks together. The first week we stayed at Barbara’s house and then we took a trip out to the coast to see Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Savannah and everything in between. I love my mom so much, she is the raddest mom and so fun to travel with!
Here are some photos of us at Myrtle Beach:
Myrtle Beach is seaside resort town for people to come vacation. There are so many golf courses and beach front seaside high rise hotels. It has a little bit of a Vegas vibe, meets Coney Island, meets Venice Beach. There are a lot of pawn shops and seaside crab shacks. On a side note, Myrtle Beach is also the home of the dance the Shag.
The most striking thing I noticed about Myrtle beach was the numerous epic miniature golf courses. I spotted at least 15 of these wonderfully over-the-top family fun centers all themed differently with hugh dramatic waterfalls, volcanos, and life-sized props. Some themes included: Bermuda Triangle (pictured below), dinosaurs, pirates, and Atlantis. They were all so impressive in a Las Vegas hotel facade kind of way. I wish I had taken more photos, but I was driving at the time.
I also spotted a huge amount of Malibu Dream Girl swimwear. My former workplace sells mainly to Florida and the East Coast, so I had never seen seaside shops with all our swimwear. It was neat to see design I created in massive amounts on the walls.
