Myrtle Beach trip

We are leaving for a week in Myrtle beach on June 25th. We will have about 4 days once we leave before we have to be back home. Does anyone know of any interesting places to visit? It doesn't really matter what direction, we just want to visit some places that we have never been!!!

Travel south 17 to Georgetown, turn left on main by the steel mill and take one of the boat tours to Shell Island. Pack a picnic basket.

Between Myrtle Beach and Georgetown are some pretty cool places. Pawleys Island and Murrells Inlet are cool.
Have you ever been to Myrtle Beach?

Yes, we have been there several times. We are planning on taking a different route back home to Tennessee since we have plenty of time! Just haven't decided which way we are going to go.

Well.. east is not an option.
Pawleys Island is famous for the Pawleys Island Hammock.
There is a new federal prison up around Kingstree. I don't know if they give tours.
Really not much to see.

If it were me, I'd probably head down 17 to McClellanville and to to the shrimp boat docks. They have a seafood store there where last year you could get fresh local shrimp (make sure you ask for local shrimp) for $5 a pound. I'd maybe get 4-5 pounds of that in the cooler then halfway between McClellanville and Awendaw is a federal campground that is on the intercoastal waterway Buck Hall Buck Hall Recreation Area
I'd spend the night there and gorge myself on shrimp. There is a store for provisioning just the other side of Awendaw, the Sewee Outpost. They have a great selection of food and other stuff there Sewee Outpost | Your Low "Country" Store
Right down the road from the Sewee Outpost there is the Birds of Prey Center. They do daily shows or exibitions or what-not. The Avian Conservation Center and The Center for Birds of Prey | Plan Your Visit
Also in Awendaw is the Bull Island Ferry which is a ferry ride (no cars) out to Bull Island Bull Island Ferry-Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge- Mount Pleasant, SC - Attraction - in South Carolina
Thats pretty nice.
All of this is within easy driving distance of Buck Hall.. just down Hwy 17.
Oh, also in Awendaw, across from the Outpost is Seewee Restaurant. Fried pickles are the local favorite.

We were there about a year ago and visitied Alligator Adventure, which is right on Rt. 17. Might not be for everyone, but we liked it.

We were in Myrtle Beach about 5 years ago, at the time we didn't know it was bike week!!!!! It was different to say the least. We were at a timeshare that time walking distance to the Apache Campground, looked very nice. We will be in Myrtle Beach next week and hope to stay a few days, possibly there. We missed visiting friends the last time and hope to make up for it this trip! A night or two at the Elks Club at Merrills Inlet, dry camping but thats OK with us.

Where will you guys be staying when you are there??

We are staying at the Pirateland Campground. We have never stayed there before, but we went through it the last time we were there. It's very nice with alot of things to do!

You may want to consider spending a day at Brookgreen Gardens - http://www.brookgreen.org. It is just outside of Myrtle Beach.
