Choose Your Own Outdoor Adventure in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Choose Your Own Outdoor Adventure in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Be honest…outdoor adventure in Myrtle Beach sounds like a bit of an oxymoron, right? Most people think of “The Strip” when picturing Myrtle Beach and imagine a boardwalk lined with hotels, rides, and arcade games. But the real reason we decide to go back to Myrtle Beach year after year? Stunning natural beauty. Surprised? We were, too. We never expected to find gorgeous State Parks, botanical gardens, and wild swamps just a short drive away from all the bustling boardwalk attractions. So when your family visits this great...

Wild and Crazy Boardwalk Fun, Minutes from the Myrtle Beach KOA

Wild and Crazy Boardwalk Fun, Minutes from the Myrtle Beach KOA

The word camping usual brings to mind quiet, natural settings far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. But sometimes our family wants to be right in the middle of the action when we travel in our RV. As we mentioned in our campground review, the best thing about the Myrtle Beach KOA is that you don’t have to choose. This campground is a wooded retreat just steps away from all the excitement of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. There are enough miniature golf courses, amusement parks, and fun houses in Myrtle Beach to keep your... Read More

Are you looking for a beach getaway this summer?  Or would you prefer a wooded retreat where you can relax while the kids run free?  Why not have both at the Myrtle Beach KOA?

6 Amazing Family Activities at Brookgreen Gardens, South Carolina

6 Amazing Family Activities at Brookgreen Gardens, South Carolina

Brookgreen Gardens, located in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, is just 30 minutes south of Myrtle Beach. It is a fascinating and unusual combination of a botanical garden, history museum, zoo, and nature center. There are so many different activities to enjoy while visiting, but it would be virtually impossible to see and do it all. Last year we wrote a philosophical post after visiting Brookgreen, focusing on how the garden hits the sweet spot of family travel and pleases both the young and old. This year we are getting a bit more practical.... Read More

Shaking off Winter on Paul’s Cypress Swamp Tour (Myrtle Beach, SC)

Shaking off Winter on Paul’s Cypress Swamp Tour (Myrtle Beach, SC)

It was another brutal winter in New Jersey.  So why not head to Myrtle Beach for another spring break?  Our trip last spring was beyond delicious. We swam in the pool at the Myrtle Beach KOA, we swam in the ocean, we visited gardens, and state parks, and we lapped up the sunshine and warm weather like we were eskimos on our first and last family vacation. Saturday was all about the long drive.  The twins were good.  Wesley was okay.  Lots of crying and too many pit stops.  So today, Easter Sunday, was all about fun. I woke up in the mood for...
