All About Our Vacation To #MyrtleBeach

This has been such a crazy summer due to Covid19. Unfortunately our original travel plans changed several times. Originally we were booked on a Caribbean cruise for May 2020. This was cancelled and luckily the cruise line refunded us 100%. We decided to book a vacation in the Florida Keys and we booked a week at a beautiful resort in Marathon, Florida Keys. However....as you know Florida quickly became a Covid19 "Hotspot" and we opted to cancel that vacation. We felt like we would not be able to relax and let our kids enjoy the attractions there without being worried about Covid19 the entire trip. Luckily we did get a 100% refund. And this is how we ended up at North Myrtle Beach! 


We love North Myrtle Beach, SC and we have visited many times over the past few summers. I grew up going to North Myrtle Beach, SC. Our favorite resort is called https://www.kingstonplantation.com/ and this is where we stayed. We booked a two bedroom condo thru VRBO. We had a great week at the beach and pool. We took our kids to mini golf several times and they had a lot of fun! We felt like mini golf was a pretty safe option since it is outside and the golf clubs were all cleaned between golfers. There was not much traffic on the main road which typically in July highway 17 is always bumper to bumper but this was not the case. I feel like the media may have scared the tourist away from Myrtle Beach. Here's a brief video our week at North Myrtle Beach: YouTube video 
mini golf at Molten Mountain 





We opted to get take out for dinner a few times and we also dined at a few restaurants on the patio outside. 
Delicious dinner at https://www.flyingfishmarket.com/ at Barefoot Landing

The Intercoastal Waterway behind us



Things I observed in North Myrtle Beach: 
lifeguards wearing masks
beach umbrella's spaced very far apart (further than I've ever seen them!)
wait staff wearing gloves and masks at restaurants
tables spaced apart at restaurants
masks required to enter shops, restaurants, mini golf, etc.

The Splash Waterpark at the resort was so much fun! We spent a lot of time here!
