Myrtle Beach overnight

I had a Groupon for a stay at Prince Resort in North Myrtle Beach. This is turning out to be a great way to travel for a reasonable amount of money! Due to work schedules, my friend and I couldn't head out of Greensboro until late Saturday afternoon, so we didn't even arrive at the hotel until after 7:00 pm. I'd review the hotel, but it wasn't great - and I don't want to get into a negative review at this point. We will not stay there again, however.

After checking into our room, we headed out for dinner. We found Duffy Street Seafood Shack and ordered a steam pot and some steamed oysters. Nothing compares to the steam pot I had in Ocean Isle a little over a year ago! Duffy St was still good though, and the oysters and crab legs were particularly delicious.

When we learned the breakfast buffet at the hotel was quite pricy, we decided to had down the road and found Hot Diggity Diner where we loaded up on coffee, eggs, sausage, french toast, and more coffee. The service was good, the food was great, and it is a place we'd return in the future.

Sunday we drove down to Barefoot Landing and Broadway at the Beach, did some window shopping, and decided to pick up some fresh seafood to take home to Greensboro for dinner. We stopped at Flying Fish Market and picked up some shrimp and scallops. It looked like a great restaurant, but was not quite what I had in mind for a fish market!

In the end, the overnight to Myrtle Beach was quick and relatively uneventful. The best part was being able to watch the sunrise over the ocean from our hotel room (thanks to Daylight Savings Time taking effect!). We always make a point to eat seafood while at the beach, and this was no exception. It was a nice little getaway during the end of off-season at the beach!
