New year’s resolutions are a big buzz this time of year.
Combine them with a bucket list, and you have a double dose of awesome activities. Take it even further. Consider your favorite vacation destination: Myrtle Beach. Now we’re talking.
Let this list get you started!
Imagine a week on the Grand Strand. It’s beneficial for mental health, too. On vacation, feelings of calm surface and reduce anxiety. Your body and mind recover in ways that they can’t while you’re under stress in your daily routine.
PRO TIP: How’s this for stress-free? All these activities are included in the cost when you stay at Monterey Bay Suites:
… and much more!
Schedule a day in your getaway to cast lines. One top resolution is to fish more often. Find more ways to justify a day on the inlet or booking a spot with a tour guide. Bring a buddy if that helps!
PRO TIP: Head to Apache Pier. Get your own supplies or rent them. The pier has taken a blow from the 2022 hurricanes but is one of the region’s greatest places to fish.
Slow down, unplug, and spend time in a state park. This area has two excellent choices only a short drive away. Take a hike, bring a picnic, and don’t forget your binoculars for a day of sightseeing in nature.
PRO TIP: See marsh wildlife and Atalaya Castle at Huntington Beach State Park. Or head to Myrtle Beach State Park for a walk on the Sculptured Oak Nature Trail and a visit to the nature center. (Better yet: See both parks.)
Combine the mindful benefits of yoga with the serenity of an uncrowded beach. Rather than hitting the gym, roll out the mat on the sand for a fitter body. Who needs a gym membership, anyway?
PRO TIP: Take a short walk before you hit the mat. Take in the feel of the beach, the breeze, the waves, the wildlife. It’s all part of the experience!
Your assignment: Get out of your comfort zone at supper! A delicious restaurant might be detrimental to some resolutions you set, but it’s worth it to put them aside for a meal or two. Ready for a culinary adventure?
TRY THIS: Famous sports-bar chain Twin Peaks has come to the Grand Strand. You’ll encounter cordial service, spicy Nashville chicken, and the coldest beer around.
If your goal is to have more fun in 2023, Monterey Bay Suites fits right into your plans. Start your vacation with a clean, comfortable room on the oceanfront. Come where the price is right, and the beach is steps away.
