At the end of each summer in the Myrtle Beach area, the crowds grow smaller, and the temperatures grow cooler. While everyone loves the excitement of the summer months, it is the winter that makes the beach city a cozy place for relaxation and rest.

It’s a tradition almost as hotly anticipated as vacation itself (we said almost).Unfolding the beach chair, digging your toes in the sand, and devouring a new book.While there’s a time and place for “War and Peace,” we know the best reads to get are page-turners — think easy laughs, mystery and scandal, and, yes, maybe a bodice-ripper or two. We’ve found recommendations from popular magazines and websites for some of the best beach reads for 2015. Ten, to be exact, and we gave precedence to those set in the south, on the beach, or with some Carolina ties.And for your convenience, we recommend finding these in paperback where possible....

From the waterfront restaurants along the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk to the 'arrogantly shabby' seafood shacks of Pawleys Island, guests at Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort are surrounded by can't-miss, fresh-catch options.

There are few places across the globe that can lay claim to being the birthplace of a particular pop culture innovation. The Grand Strand holds bragging rights when it comes to dance, as it is the birthplace of the world-famous dance known as the Shag. Developed in the 1940s, the Shag provided a fun and rebellious escape from the day-to-day monotonies of life in coastal South Carolina. During this time period, teens and young adults fled to the beachfront clubs and lounges in order to listen and dance to rhythm and blues music, which at the time was considered largely inappropriate due to its romantic themes and sultry tunes....

Myrtle Beach is known for many things, some of which include the Grand Strand's beautiful golf courses, divine dining, and endless shopping experiences.

You may have heard of a pub crawl, but a visit to the Murrells Inlet, just south of Myrtle Beach, is more like a scenic seafood stroll.Located along a wooden walkway that borders the inlet, the Marsh Walk gives visitors that chance to take a leisurely jaunt from restaurant to restaurant, each offering their own unique Lowcountry dishes and atmosphere. The one thing they share in common: They all serve fresh local seafood that you can watch being unloaded on the nearby docks. Try to hit them all, but make sure not to miss these five eateries:Dead Dog Saloon: This long-running favorite burned to the ground earlier this year, but a new and improved Dead Dog emerged from the ashes....

There are lots of good reasons to stay at Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort — including the luxurious Lowcountry location, the world-class amenities, and the 600 scenic acres of woodlands, wetlands and white-sand beaches. But perhaps none are bigger than the abundance of award-winning golf courses within a short distance of the resort, giving guests a long list of opportunities.With more than 80 golf courses within a 60-mile radius of Myrtle Beach, Grand Strand visitors have plenty of options for golf. But the vast majority of top-rated layouts are located on the South Strand, from Murrells Inlet down to Georgetown.... Read More
Beer has undergone a major revolution in recent years. Once represented by only handful of national brands, the beer industry’s top has been popped, blown wide open by the exploding popularity of craft beers and microbreweries. For beer-lovers with adventurous taste buds, it's now easier than ever to sample a wide variety of ales, ciders, stouts and wheat beers from around the world.The craft-beer craze has reached our little corner of the South Carolina coast, with several small bars and restaurants adding hard-to-find craft beers to their lineups.

In real estate, it’s the big question.Rent or buy?When talking South Strand vacations, there is no question.Rent, rent, rent.Whether it’s too big and bulky to bring from home or so out-of-this-world wild that you’d never own it in the first place, vacation rental accessories can elevate your trip to a convenient and affordable “Best Ever” status.What are the best items to rent when you’re staying at Litchfield Beach & Golf?

When the first explorers trudged through the pristine marsh waters of the South Strand to settle the territory, they gazed out across the land and said:“This is where I shall plant my rice. This is where I shall dock my vessel.”“This is where I shall play my golf.”Or so we imagine.The links are as woven into the fabric of the Myrtle Beach area as shrimp and grits and riding the surf. It’s about the biggest attraction we’ve got down here, second to, you know, that big ocean thing. Heck, it’s so big it’s even in our name: Litchfield Beach & Golf.... Read More
If there’s one thing worse than heading out on that great (as in big, vast — not wonderful) new year’s pledge known as the “I’m Getting Healthy Once and For All” routine, it’s being reminded of ways in which we can get healthy once and for all.Enough already. Can we please have the eggnog and cheese plates back?Sigh.But when getting back into the wellness frame of mind is delicious, fun, fascinating and rewarding, it’s a little easier to swallow. And when so many of these options are right outside your door near the Litchfield Beach & Golf resort, it’s even better.... Read More

It can’t possibly be… is it?The end of summer?.?Labor Day weekend is a most bittersweet time — while the carefree, warm whims of the fairest months will be missed, it will be nice to get the kids back in school. And give your air conditioner a break. And kick off pumpkin latte season.But we all have that nagging feeling of “Did I really take advantage of this season?” Why not check a few things off that list on Labor Day weekend while in Litchfield Beach — one of the most gorgeous, low-key and memorable spots on the Grand Strand.Here’s how:Item No....

The South Strand relishes its “endless summer” vibe.But the kids still have to go back to school, you know what we mean?Spending Labor Day weekend at Litchfield Beach & Golf means you get one last summertime hurrah — one last lazy beach day, one last over-the-top ice cream cone, one last sunset over the inlet.We get the importance of this ritualistic changing of the seasonal guard, even if the warm weather does tend to linger a little longer here.We’ve got some great things to do here over Labor Day weekend — away from the teeming crowds of some of the bigger, more obvious attractions — to stretch out those last fun days of the best time of year....

Longtime visitors to Litchfield and Pawley’s Island have likely visited the Hammock Shops many times, and perhaps eaten at one point at the now-defunct Roz’s Rice Mill Café, which was housed in a mid-1800s-era building that once served as a post office.  But the former Roz’s has a new identity as a biscuit, burger and shake shack that’s capital-Q quirky (in the best possible sense).BisQit is owned by the Mike Benson and Josh Quigley, the same team who created Quigley’s Pint and Plate, another of our favorite newer restaurants in Pawleys Island. BisQit's menu is built on innovative takes on southern-style pub food.... Read More
You know we love Myrtle Beach.Like, love.But we also enjoy getting out a little, venturing off the beaten path, reveling in some quieter corners of the Grand Strand.Which is why we really love Pawleys Island.But what to do? Where to start? And how do we get there?Easy. Follow us.Pawleys Island lies off the Highway 17 corridor that links Myrtle Beach to Charleston, making it a snap to get from one spot to the other and everything in between. Murrells Inlet is just to the north, as are popular Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington Beach State Park. Just to the west the links-lovers among you will find a golfers paradise.... Read More

We often forget that the United States is not that old — few cities even crest the two-century mark.Here in the Grand Strand, things sometimes seem especially young. We’ve got new hotels, new restaurants and new attractions that seem to pop up daily.Then we head a little south, to quaint Georgetown, S.C., and get a dose of what life was like so very long ago.When you head to Georgetown — a seaside community halfway between Myrtle Beach and Charleston — the best way to dip into its historic significance is through the fun and informative Swamp Fox Tours Company....

For the majority of the continental United States, winter is “Why Do I Live Here?” season. However, not in Myrtle Beach, where the fair weather and infrequent snowfalls make it a delight to reside in year round.With that said, we locals adore autumn and recommend it over winter for visitors looking to escape the encroaching cold. Here’s why.1) Weather: Fall is a joy in Myrtle Beach, with average September highs in the 80s and October’s at the near ideal mid-70s mark. Even November, rounding the corner toward winter, tops out in the mid-60s, making those cozy sweaters useful, but not essential.... Read More
Think about it: we’re taking stock of the summer season, reaping the bounty of our fields, and taking a breather from some oppressive heat. However, you know that pit-of-the-stomach uneasy feeling folks experience, where even the most beautiful fall is just a precursor to some brutal winter weather? Yeah, we don’t get that here.It’s all good, all the time.Anyway, Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort fits you right in the center of all the action — be it a harvest, art, wine, music or food festival — with great off-season rates on accommodations and packages that will leave you with a little more cash in your pocket to splurge for that pumpkin spice latte....

There is no more sublime tradition for a kid than Halloween trick-or-treating. A spooky costume, glowing jack-o-lanterns, and the candy…Oh, the candy.Myrtle Beach has a treasure trove of sugary stops, in addition to your standard neighborhood, um, haunts. While counties and cities have their own official trick-or-treat start and stop times, area businesses and attractions take part, too.Here are some best bets.Broadway at the Beach: We love this idea of combining Halloween tradition with some additional fun. Dressed-up kids can hit up stores for treats, and perhaps pause for a little dinner at one of the many Broadway restaurants.... Read More
Packing for a day at the beach sounding a little daunting?We understand; you want to be prepared for all possibilities so you bring… a lot. What if it’s too hot? Too cold? Too buggy? Too muggy? What if we get hungry? Thirsty? Sunburned? Bored? Tired?

Bring only the essentials and make do without the rest. Here’s how.1) Assume a few things. You will get thirsty, you will need sunblock, you’ll likely get wet, you will be sitting for a while....

It’s no wonder that the South Strand destination that plays host to a famously popular art and music festival every year also lays claim to some fabulous galleries in which we can view and buy art.But contrary to its stuffy reputation, art buying, especially here in Pawleys Island and Litchfield, can be a fun and affordable way to broaden your mind, beautify your home, and bank away a vacation’s worth of memories.Not in the market to buy? You can count on that southern hospitality to avoid any awkward no-thanks-I’m-just-looking exchanges with curators.

Nearby Myrtle Beach has some of the best holiday shows in the country at which we find the joy of the season crooned out by incredible talent. Grab a loved one or two, put on your holiday best, and get ready to smile.

You know it as soon as you darken the doorstep.This place is NOT kid friendly.The breakable stemware. The hushed tones.

Here are a few of our faves just minutes from Litchfield Beach & Golf.1) Pawleys Island Tavern: While we can’t think of many parents who delight in taking their children to a tavern per se, during the daylight hours this is less watering hole and more casual haunt....

It was the venerable Homer Simpson who once said, “You can’t make friends with salad.”And with that, a chorus of carnivores cheered in unison.While we do love salad (sorry, Homer), you just can’t beat a great steak, and lucky for us, the communities south of Myrtle Beach have some beautiful and beefy options. Here are five best bests in Pawleys Island, Murrells Inlet and Litchfield.1) Frank’s Restaurant and Bar: Of all the incredible places to grab a steak on the Grand Strand, this is arguably the best —insofar as it is actually a steakhouse, er, chophouse. In addition to an extensive restaurant menu in which one can procure anything from braised Colorado lamb to pan fried quail, Frank’s offers a special chophouse menu for the purists.... Read More
It’s not that we’re fishing for compliments, really.But there are some things the South Strand does very well, and inshore and offshore adventures are among them.While staying at Litchfield Beach & Golf, you’re within casting distance of some fun, knowledgeable and reputable charter companies to take you out, hook you up, and reel your catch in for an incredibly memorable outing. This is an especially great option if you’re chipping in with a couple of other adults to defray costs. Flounder, black drum, red drum, sea trout, tarpon and more (and maybe even a shark — eek....

What is it about warm weather that makes us go margarita crazy? Is it the refreshingly tart citrus flavors? That salted rim harkening to the ocean and its sea air? The festive, celebratory feeling that drinking one inspires?Oh, who are we kidding. It’s the tequila.Like many other classic cocktails, margaritas are having a moment. Beverage directors and libation specialists (they’re not bartenders anymore, mind you) have gotten creative, using specialty tequilas, agave syrups and homemade infusions and add-ins to elevate the old standby to new levels of boutique craftiness. These concoctions are a fun way to experiment with new flavors, but sometimes the simple elements of lime, sugar, tequila and salt are all we need — and want — in a margarita.... Read More

Ahhhh, wine.You delicious little minx, you.You pick us up when we’re down, set a romantic mood, and celebrate with us in times of triumph.(Sometimes you can really kick our butts, however we’re not going to worry about that here.)It only makes sense that South Stranders — adapt at living the good life in an idyllic environment — also love to kick back with an aromatic, tasty glass (or two) of vino.Where to get wined and dined near your stay at Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort? Here are our three top picks:1) Perrone’s: This Mediterranean staple is within, um, stumbling distance of Litchfield Beach & Golf, making it a great spot for a post-beach (or golf) tipple and, eventually, dinner....

One of the most magical sights on the South Strand is but a few steps away.Brookgreen Gardens’ Nights of a Thousand Candles is back this year, and visiting the expansive garden grounds by twinkling lights is a must-do when staying at Litchfield Beach & Golf. Well, anywhere really, but you’re so close right now that it would be a shame not to.But this weekend — December 18, 19 and 20 — is the last to enjoy the “Nights.” However, those in town after Christmas will delight in an extension of sorts.

Well, any non-southerner can attest what March is like due north of us — cold, bleak, and seemingly endless. Down here? Well, it’s warm, sunny and downright delightful and we want you all to see it.... Read More

You’ll find restaurants, shops, a picturesque river walk — and, of course, the Conway Ghost Walk: Spirits of the Lowcountry (Conway Ghost Walks) and its hair-raising tales of hauntings.... Read More
Yes, we’re supposed to relax on vacation.But at the expense of our well-earned physiques?Good news, folks, we can have it both ways — that is, take a load off without putting a load on.How?Be realistic. Don’t expect to spend hours intensely exercising if that’s just not in the cards. Instead, think maintenance, healthful choices, and unexpected calorie burns. Here’s what you need to do, and it’s all within minutes of your accommodations at Litchfield Beach & Golf.1) 10,000 Steps: We’ve all heard that this is the sort of fitness gold standard, the minimum number of steps we need to take a day to stay on a healthy track....

There are so many great restaurants located along the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk that it's hard to choose just one — so don't.Instead of enjoying a four-course meal at one of the dozen or so establishments connected by the wooden waterfront walkway, take a page out of Ernest Hemingway's memoir 'A Moveable Feast' and have one course each at four different restaurants. Take the short stroll on the MarshWalk and stop in for a few small tastes of what the 'Seafood Capital of South Carolina' has to offer.Since Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort guests have proven they have great taste by staying at the ultimate Lowcountry vacation property, we've compiled a list of their popular choices for which restaurants do each course best....

Paint color is an aspect of your home that can have a huge effect on a room's appeal. As noted in an article by interior designer Barbara Jacobs, the color of something-be it walls, a car, or a can of soda-accounts for 60% of our response to an object.With that much emphasis, the importance of picking the right paint color cannot be underestimated. Here are a few quick tips offered by Jacobs:Start Small: Experiment on a smaller room, such as a bathroom or an accent wall before moving on to coat a whole large room in a new color.Think About the Mood: If painting your child's room, do you want it to convey energy or order?
