It’s hard to believe I’ve been at the beach for 3 years, but it’s true! I moved down in 2017 for work, and I haven’t looked back since.
I mean, why would I? I LIVE, WORK AND PLAY AT THE BEACH!
I love what I do.
I love the area, the businesses, the activities.
I love the weather…unless there’s a hurricane coming our way… or when my clothes gets soaked with sweat the second I step outside…
And, I love the people…except those who can’t drive properly on 501 and 17…
Most people only DREAM of this life, or they get just a small bite of the appetizer instead of the whole decadent 5-course meal!
With that being said though, I still don’t feel like I’ve really LIVED at the beach.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve visited quite a few places and participated in many activities, but I’ve really just dipped the tippy top of my lil pinky toe in the water when I want to be fully submerged in the beach culture.
So, I’m challenging myself this year, and I hope you go along with me!
I’ve created a Beach Bucket List. With the help of many of EASY listeners – THANK YOU!!!
It includes areas to explore, sites to visit, restaurants to check out, adventures to be had and more!
They all pertain to the Myrtle Beach area and beyond, and there’s 52. My goal? Check off one each week this year.
So, let’s get started!
