Museum of Coastal Carolina

The interesting exhibits, dioramas and interactive displays of this museum depicts the natural history of coastal North and South Carolina.

Reviewed By World_Traveller914 - Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina

We enjoyed this place in that it told of the ocean currents, sea and shore animals and some history and heritage of living near the local coast. However, it had fairly limited exhibits and was overpriced for what you saw ($9.50 per adult). One room was even down a half flight of stairs without any way for handicapped people to see (Americans w/ Disabilities Act violation?).

River's Edge Golf Club

Arnold Palmer designed layout was selected by Golf Magazine as one of the top 20 "Best New Courses that you can play" in the United States.

Reviewed By usndon - Florida

Our group returned to Myrtle after a five year hiatus and Rivers Edge is one of the courses we wanted to play. We were not disappointed. The course is in great shape, the staff is wonderful and we had a great time. The only possible drawback is the par three 15th where the golfer is forced to hit 160 yards over the marsh from a mat. Other courses manage small tee boxes such as this, Rivers Edge can too. But that's a minor ding in a wonderful track. Play it.

Holden Beach

Reviewed By Educatdhorses - Scranton, Pennsylvania

Very beautiful, well-kept beach area. The houses in this community are gorgeous and colorful. It's quiet because everyone renting these houses are hanging at the beach most of the time. The beach area is nice and clean. The ocean is breath-taking. The streets are flat, clean, and well maintained. My parents rent a house here often and spend a week here on vacation. They just took me here over the weekend to show me what all the fuss was about. It really is an awesome area! And there's places to eat nearby and its close to the city and Myrtle Beach! And if you travel north another half hour there's a lighthouse!

Fort Apache

Reviewed By Harry P - Wilmington, North Carolina

If you are on vacation, if you live here and have tired of the commercialized much hyped, over priced over abundance of attractions between Myrtle Beach and points north, take
a road trip to the most eclectic, obscene, accumulation of everything, anyone might have once had squirreled away in a long ago forgotten trunk, face to face with every conceived halloween prank never realized. After some point, you will leave this place, I mean they don't rent rooms, but I guarantee you will find yourself just down the road coming up
with reasons to come back to maybe go back down the "tunnel". This is absolutely a must see for any age level! Ask Mike and Frank of "Pickers" fame..................

Reviewed By Jason R

I highly recommend Cpt. Cane. Well thought out, easy, professional, and all around well executed tour. We did a half day with some Spanish Mackerel and shark fishing. Not much luck on the sharks but great luck on the mackerel. Even if the fishing had not been great the boat trip would have been a success with the small group and excellent Captain. Great job.

Windy Point Nautical Adventures

Reviewed By Shellqueen666 - San Leandro, California

Booked an early morning cruise up the inlet to the freshwater swamps, it was beautiful. He can tell you about the birds, fish, and life here that is entertaining and informative. We've been vacationing here for ten years and found out more details in three hours with Captain Scott on his cruise. He even answered questions my husband had on boats, the costs, maintenance, salt water verses fresh, fishing etc...he really is a sweetheart of a man, very patient, and hospitable. If you get the chance book a cruise with him. The only regret we have is that we didn't find him sooner.

Lockwood Folly Country Club

Our links style course winds its way among salt marshes, creeks, forests, fields and our community. Lockwood Folly is located on the Carolina coast mid-way between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington, NC and may require a slight detour from the mainstream to reach, but it is definitely worth the ride because the golf is challenging, yet rewarding, and the views and ambiance are simply superb.

Reviewed By RickK - Fulshear, Texas

I played Lockwood Folly years ago on a trip to the then Dupont World Amateur. 3 of us who were up for the now Myrtle Beach World Amateur played Lockwood Folly after playing 27 holes at Carolina National so I was pretty beat by the time we got here. Still very enjoyable course. Tight, tree lined course with recently redone greens. Greens were in good shape but understandably a bit slow and very hard as expected with them being new.

Some of the tee boxes are not in great shape because of the lack of air circulation with all the trees but it did not cause any problems. Overall condition of the course was very good.

They are operating out of a trailer as they are in the process of building a new clubhouse. Plans for it look great.
