WonderWorks Brings Weird Science to Broadway at the Beach

Towering over the Broadway skyline is the ground floor of this science laboratory, where a failed science experiment exploded and dropped the building on its roof on top of a seafood shack.

Top 5 Myrtle Beach Attractions in the Winter

Top 5 Myrtle Beach Attractions in the Winter Longtime locals and visitors of Myrtle Beach used to joke that you could lie down in the middle of Ocean Boulevard after Labor Day and not have to move until Memorial Day. That's not the case these days in Myrtle Beach, which has grown into a year-round destination. With more than 14 million annual visitors to the Grand Strand, many of those are snowbirds and savvy shoppers who have found it the best time to visit. Smaller crowds, cheaper hotel rates and more year-round attractions are major draws. Visitors come to Myrtle Beach in the offseason for the mild climate, great deals and to check out some of the great attractions that may have longer lines during the busier months. Although the warm-weather venues like amusement rides and waterparks pull the plug in the offseason, there are still plenty of attractions to keep you busy all winter. Here's a list of five Grand Strand attractions that are open year-round:

Souper Supper Serves Great Soups, Great Times

Souper Supper Serves Great Soups, Great Times Perhaps a famous old ad slogan said it best: "Soup is Good Food."

Fresh Market Brings the Farm and Garden to Myrtle Beach

Fresh Market Brings the Farm and Garden to Myrtle Beach It's easy to let your dietary guard down during vacation, especially to Myrtle Beach. With the temptation to stock up on treats and sweets for the hotel room and to grab a quick burger and fries at the beachfront grill, you can easily pack on a few pounds if you're not careful. That's why one short trip to The Fresh Market is in order. Located just a few blocks from Long Bay Resort in the historic Dunes section of Myrtle Beach, The Fresh Market is the first of its kind on the Grand Strand and has been creating quite a stir among the local culinary community. This small regional chain was born and based in the Carolinas, so The Fresh Market may be unfamiliar to many. The Fresh Market offers a new concept in grocery stores that is actually a very old one. Designed to bring back the classic community farmers' market and provide fresh meat, produce, baked goods and gourmet dishes to the masses, this unique market puts a new twist on grocery shopping that is at the forefront of the healthy eating trend.
 

Top 5 Reasons to Spend Thanksgiving at the Beach

Top 5 Reasons to Spend Thanksgiving at the Beach Traditionally, Thanksgiving has meant a gathering at one unlucky family member's home and a full day of cooking for a 30-minute feast, followed by a full day of cleaning. Not exactly what most people would consider a holiday, especially if you're the one doing all the cooking and cleaning.That's one of the many reasons families have started to take a more relaxing approach to the holiday with a visit to Myrtle Beach. Not only is the weather still warm well into November, but there's a whole lot of fun and festivities taking place during the four-day weekend. Here's a list of five things to do in Myrtle Beach on Thanksgiving:
 

Long Bay Symphony a Harmonic Choice for Long Bay Guests

Long Bay Symphony a Harmonic Choice for Long Bay Guests Guests at the Long Bay Resort don't have to look very far - neither geographically or alphabetically in the phone book - to find a nice evening out at the Long Bay Symphony.

The Long Bay Symphony, founded in 1987 by local musicians looking for a orchestral outlet, has a history of involvement in youth music group activities, so the shows are often attended by families.
 

Get a Jump on your Christmas Shopping with a Myrtle Beach ‘Shop-cation’

Get a Jump on your Christmas Shopping with a Myrtle Beach ‘Shop-cation’ The explosion of retail shopping centers in Myrtle Beach has created a new phenomenon among offseason visitors: the Grand Strand "shop-cation." Part vacation and part shopping trip, savvy spenders have discovered the tempting combination of enjoying the mild fall weather while also shopping for bargains for the upcoming holidays. The idea is to save money by hitting all the retail stores on the Grand Strand and relaxing the rest of the time by hitting the beach in the offseason. The decreased crowds and lower hotel rates combined with the increase in shopping malls, outlet shops and shopping districts equals a great opportunity to sneak in a mini-vacation and knock out all that holiday shopping that causes so much stress later in the year. Pack light so you can go home with a full load and an empty shopping list.

Oktoberfest blocks off the main drag of Ocean Boulevard, between Eighth Avenue North and Mr. Joe White Avenue, along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk's Promenade section. Food and drink vendors and arts and crafts booths line the streets and sidewalks and a beer garden for the grown-ups is the perfect place to take in all the festivities while sampling some of the best autumn beers produced by local, national and international breweries.
 

Have a Good Time Getting Lost at Local Corn Maze

Have a Good Time Getting Lost at Local Corn Maze Experience an old-timey autumn tradition of finding your way through a corn maze at Thompson Farm & Nursery in Conway, about a 20-minute drive from Myrtle Beach. Every weekend in October, Thompson Farm transforms into a fall festival for visitors looking to escape the commercialism of Halloween candy and haunted houses for a more grassroots sort of celebration. Not only does Thompson Farm boast the largest corn maze in the state of South Carolina, the 165-year-old homestead also pulls out all the stops to show its guests a good time in a rural setting.The maze isn't your traditional corn field with a path cut through it. Sponsored by WPDE-TV and Ripley's Aquarium, the maze features the sponsors' names and an aquatic design of fish and sea creatures carved into it from an aerial view, which guests can see from atop a silo stand. But the sneak peek doesn't help to find your way through the corn once you're inside the maze and looking at ground level.

Myrtle Beach Getting Revved Up for Fall Bike Rally

Myrtle Beach Getting Revved Up for Fall Bike Rally The Myrtle Beach Fall Bike Rally has long been known as the little sister event compared to the more popular Harley-Davidson Spring Rally. But, just as actual little sisters also eventually hit a growth spurt, the Fall Rally is closing the gap on big brother. With the upcoming 2014 edition scheduled for Sept. 26 through Oct. 5, the Fall Rally still draws significantly smaller crowds than the more established, 75-year event in May.
