11 Feb Myrtle Beach:
Myrtle Beach, SC
I visited Myrtle Beach during the winter. The weather there was in the mid to high 50’s. During the day the most we needed was a sweater. Since it was off season, flights and accommodations were so cheap that I joked that they paid us to come. It was such a relaxing place. The beaches were empty and it wasn’t even freezing, though it was too cold to swim.
Myrtle Beach has a whopping 15 million tourists visiting a year! They have so many attractions, it is hard to choose what to do. In the winter months some of the attractions, especially water or amusements, were closed and even so, we did not have a minute to breathe. We went from one fun thing to the next.
There were so many places to choose from when it came to sleeping accommodations. We chose to stay in a suite with a kitchenette overlooking the ocean. It was clean and beautiful and only cost $50 a night. We even got to see dolphins in the ocean from our porch.
The Chabad Synagogue was just a few minute walk from where we stayed. The Rabbi was extremely friendly and welcoming.
When we visited in 2017 there was no kosher restaurant, although a new one, Pita Planet opened since. Bi-Lo Supermarket have an aisle of kosher products as well as freezer and fridge section. Cholov Yisrael Milk is able to be gotten.
Myrtle Beach in the winter was beautiful, I can only imagine what it must be like in the spring or summer when it is warmer.
