Here is Part II of my Myrtle Beach girls’ weekend recap. (Find Part I here).
The House of Blues features a really affordable brunch buffet on Saturday mornings, with a made-to-order omelet bar, as well as items like biscuits and gravy, home fries, bacon, waffles, and fresh fruit. It was pretty good for the price!
After brunch, we headed to Ripley’s Aquarium.
We “pet” the sting rays and I totally drenched my entire jacket sleeve in water. I’m a winner.
The jellies are pretty fascinating to watch.
Ripley’s features the longest underwater tunnel I’ve ever visited, with sharks, eels, sawfish, and all sorts of dangerous predator fish surrounding you. It was fun standing on the moving walkway and being led 330 feet through the winding underwater tunnel.
Froyo at Broadway at the Beach. To be honest I’m not a huge frozen yogurt fan but I do like the toppings.
Not far away from Broadway at the Beach is the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, our next stop.
We also took part in some beach strolling, visited the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum, and checked out the Boardwalk.
Landshark on the Boardwalk. Would’ve loved it if were just 5 degrees warmer! I can’t complain though.
That night, we visited Crocodile Rocks, a dueling piano bar at Broadway at the Beach. I thought it was really fun! We met some cool Canadians, too.
Evidence that Five Cent Femme was on this vacay!
Late that night we FINALLY worked up a dinner appetite (that House of Blues brunch buffet kept me full allll day!).
We listened to the band playing at the Hard Rock Café while we nommed on our late night dinner. We both ordered the Texan, an over-the-top pulled pork sandwich. Yum!
On Sunday morning we checked out of our hotel, but our flight wasn’t until after 9:00 PM that night, so we still had a full day to take advantage of.
Another brunch buffet was in order, at the very popular Mammy’s Kitchen. While we were eating, a huge plant fell on the booth behind us which caused quite a stir. It was a very windy day on our last day, and I think a huge gust of wind blew through the door, and toppled over the planter. (Haha.)
We used a Groupon toward a zip lining adventure on our last day. I’ve zip lined in Jamaica on two separate occasions before, so this really didn’t live up to past experiences, but it was alright.
Me all geared up:
We also played arcade games which was surprisingly so much more fun than I remembered! Spent so much money here. #worthit
We also went through a super creepy haunted house down at the boardwalk– no pics! One of the scariest ones I’ve ever visited, for sure.
Before heading to the airport to drop off our rental car and board our flight home, we stopped for a Southern meal at Magnolia’s at 26th. The collard greens were wicked good – must recreate!
And that wraps up the trip!
