Myrtle Beach, SC and Orange Beach, AL
Visited in March
for 8 days
with budget* of: US$1250
On the first day, we drove along I-10 through Louisiana to a country road that went to Atlanta, taking about 12 hours. We stayed in a Fairfield Marriott for 1 night and ate at a place called Love’s Seafood., then drove 3 hours to Congaree National Park the next day. Be warned- mosquitoes are serious here! We stayed all day, then drove another 3 hours to our Marriott Resort & Spa. There, we ate at a nearby Benjamin’s Calabash Seafood Buffet. We stayed at our hotel for 3 nights visiting Broadway at the Beach, where we saw many big fishes in the water and also visited the Wonderworks there which had some rides. We ate at Chesapeake House and Bimini’s Seafood at Myrtle beach. Afterwards, we visited the Charleston and stayed at a Andell Inn Marriott on Kiawah Island, which is mainly for golfing. The Andell Inn was one of the very rare Marriott hotels we probably won't plan to go back.
