1. Hit the Golf Course
The grass is always greener at the Eagle Nest Golf Club. Built on 250 acres of pristine land, this serene course makes it hard to tell you’re less than a mile from Highway 17.
2. Enjoy the Exhibits
The North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum is home to a wonderful and growing collection of our area’s local history. In addition to seminars from community experts, they’re currently host to the Pirate’s of the Carolinas exhibit through September.
3. Hit the Water
Hit the water with J & L Kayaking. They offer a variety of guided eco tours on the Waccamaw River, Cherry Grove Marsh, and Waites Island, and cater to a variety of experience levels from adventure seekers to young families.
4. Tour the distillery
Just opened, Twelve 33 Distillery offers handcrafted spirits made from Carolinas-sourced ingredients. To support your local farmers, try a distinctive cocktail or take the guided tour led by a guide who will educate you on the distilling process from grain to glass.
5. Get a Pedicure
Summer for me means flip flops, and showing off my toes is a great excuse for a pedicure. Pamper yourself at Nail FX for a spa-style treatment.
6. Treat Yourself to Tea Time
Take a break on a hot summer day and make a reservation for Ultimate Tea at the Calabash Garden Tea Room. You will enjoy a pleasant afternoon tea with friends, with just enough tea sandwiches and miniature desserts to satisfy you.
7. Prepare for Your Fall Garden
Edible options for our zone 8b include tomatoes, peppers, garlic, broccoli, spinach, peas, and squash. Check your seed packets to see when you should plant. Much of the fall crop should be planted in July and August.
8. Pick a scoop
You can’t let summer pass without an iconic ice cream cone. One very Instagrammable option is Calabash Creamery, which offers your favorite flavors plus seasonal options like Sweet Potato Soufflé and handmade ice cream cakes.
