North Myrtle Beach Life

One great thing about living in a popular tourist destination is that it feels like you’re on vacation every day. North Myrtle Beach restaurants, golf courses, and beach spots are places you may pass on the way to work or while running errands. You might think that these attractions would become commonplace and boring if you live right next to them through the year. However, the opposite is true.

The beach is much better when it’s only 10 minutes away from your living room. Full time living in North Myrtle Beach allows you to explore the area and pick your favorite places to eat, drink, and play. Experiencing these activities helps recommend them to others.

Food:

North Myrtle Beach is clearly not lacking on great restaurants. Endless buffets with delicious seafood, fine dining establishments, and family-friendly restaurants crowd Highway 17 - each with lights brighter than their neighbor and marquees boasting “crab legs on the buffet” or “half price lunch specials.” I like to skip Restaurant Row and visit the smaller hidden gems.

One of my favorite restaurants is Thai Season, located a few blocks south of Main Street on Highway 17. It’s got that small town attitude and a tiny sign – you’d miss it if you weren’t looking for it. Inside, it’s small, clean, and quiet. Their food is outstanding, and the wait staff is very friendly and fast. Thai Season is priced reasonably, at around $11 per meal, and offers a great take-out service. This is definitely the place to go for authentic Asian cuisine.

Drinks:

There are great classy, metro-style pubs and restaurants in North Myrtle Beach. You can get away from the younger college crowd and escape on a date night with your significant other. Sea Blue offers an upscale atmosphere with an extensive list of fine wines. Seasoned bartenders create refreshing mixed drinks, made using only the top-shelf brands. Food is made-to-order with fresh, high quality ingredients. Try their Maryland crab cakes; wonderfully crispy and served with vegetables and homemade sauce.

North Myrtle Beach Fall Festivals:

Come to North Myrtle Beach in the off-season and enjoy our fall festivals. From motorcycles and Ford Mustangs, to the Shag, beer, and oysters, there is a reason to party for most anything. The Myrtle Beach Oktoberfest is set for October 8th, in downtown Myrtle Beach. Enjoy the live music, street shows, and concerts that are taking place at the popular annual event. There is also another Oktoberfest this weekend in the Market Common district. Ocean Drive Beach Rentals keeps a current list of events on the website.

North Myrtle Beach is vibrant all through the year. Whether you live here or vacation here, you already know about all the fun you can have at the beach. Try new things, as you never know what might be the highlight of your stay!
