We’ve gotten in the habit of taking the kids somewhere new and interesting every spring break.
A couple of years ago, I chose Myrtle Beach. My grandparents had taken me there 30+ years ago, it’s got scads of golf courses, and plenty of places to stay.
We chose a pretty expensive high-rise on the beach; we used points for the hotel, but it was north of $500 per night for a 2br suite. Surely that would keep the riff-raff at bay.
Not a chance. I can tell you for a fact that we were the only family there with all of our teeth and 4 matching tires on our truck. I was dumbstruck at the utter trash and unacceptable behavior that they exhibited.
Granted, this was someone elses’ spring break as well, but all in all it’s just as bad or worse than PCB.
That said, we did find nice restaurants, good golfing, and were left alone for the most part.
Broadway at the Beach was a bit hokey, but the kids loved it, so keep it in mind if you go.
I can’t say we’d go again, unless my path just brought me up the coast for some other reason. Redneck Riviera all the way.
