A Few Great Restaurants to Try Out!

To all of my snowbird friends! I wanted to share 2 really great restaurants that I went to this past week.
On Monday, my fiancee and I drove to the historic downtown area of Conway and had lunch at The Trestle Deli. We had an amazing salad platter of chunky chicken salad, fruit chicken salad, and oriental shrimp salad with a side of pasta salad and the best sourdough bread! The bread was so good that after finishing our lunch we walked down the street to their bakery and bought a loaf to take home. We of course bought a pastry as well! Wonderful eclairs!
Saturday evening we met friends at the newly opened Millikens Reef located at the Dock Holidays Marina off of 13th Ave North in North Myrtle Beach. They offer indoor dining as well as an outdoor bar that is enclosed for the winter months. We had some delicious grilled scallops, fried calamari, and the best hushpuppies that I have found so far on the beach! They offer a full menu for both lunch and dinner as well as a sushi menu which I will be trying on our next outing.
Millikens Reef will be an excellent place to view the Intercoastal Boat Regatta on Saturday, November 28th as it is the turning point for the boats.

Thank you for choosing Southern Coast Vacations as your winter rental snowbird headquarters and Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Fun Snowbird Winter Activities!

To all of my snowbird friends! I want to share some more fun winter events that are coming up in the next week.
The Market Commons is having their 2nd Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 27th at Valor Memorial Park from 5:00-6:30. After this beautiful tree lightning enjoy dinner at one of the many wonderful restaurants at Market Commons. My favorite is Tommy Bahamas-the Loki Loki Tuna Poke is a must try appetizer!
One of my favorite events to kick off the holiday season is the Intercoastal Boat Regatta on Saturday, November 28th. This favorite of both locals and visitors starts at dust at the Cricket Cove Marina in Little River and follows the waterway up to the Dock Holidays Marina, home to the newly opened Millikans waterway restaurant and bar. If you plan to view the regatta from one of the local restaurants, plan on arriving early as seats go fast!
Prior to the regatta, Little River will be hosting a Christmas Market on their waterfront with a pet parade at noon and a Christmas parade at 2:00. Visit the Little River Chamber of Commerce website for more details.
Please check back for more fun snowbird holiday happenings around the Grand Strand Area!

Local Wine Events

If you are a snowbird who loves wine, you will not want to miss out on some local wine events happening this weekend in North Myrtle Beach!

North Myrtle Beach's local winery La Belle Amie Vineyard is hosting a Island Music Fever Festival, Saturday November 7th from 12pm to 5pm. Enjoy listening to some island music while sipping on a glass of local wine. This beautiful venue is home to a very unique gift shop that offers some really great gift ideas. They also have a section of marinades and dressings that are perfect for entertaining. My favorite is the Ginger Wasabi Marinade-great on tuna steaks! The winery is also open thru the week with a wine tasting bar where wine lovers can try a variety of the vineyards wines. For further information visit their website at www.labelleamie.com.

The Wine Shoppe of North Myrtle Beach offers weekly wine tastings at both their Gator Hole Wine Cellar and at their Windy Hill Wine Shoppe. The Gator Hole Wine Cellar offers a Saturday afternoon tasting from 2:00-6:00 while the Windy Hill Wine Shoppe offers a Friday and Saturday evening tasting from 5:00-8:00. Guests normally have a chance to taste 4-5 different wines from around the world. Both events are a fun way to learn about wine and to mingle with both locals and other snowbirds visiting the Grand Strand area.

28th Annual Dickens Christmas Show

A fun event for snowbirds in the Myrtle Beach area for November is the 28th Annual Dickens Christmas Show. Scheduled for November 12th-15th, this favorite of both locals and visitors, is held at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. Get into the spirit of Christmas as you stroll thru 350 period clad vendors all offering great gift shopping opportunities! The Festival of Trees and Wreaths is my favorite part of the show, as area businesses decorate beautifully crafted Christmas Trees and Wreaths to be auctioned off in a silent auction. A great way to get decorating ideas for your own tree!

The show also offers tours to the historic areas of Georgetown and Florence where one can view old plantations decorated for Christmas and enjoy lively narratives tales on a Victorian Christmas era. Be sure to make your reservations early for the bus tours as they sell out fast!

Keep checking back to Southern Coast Vacation's snowbird blog as I will try to share as many of my favorite events that the area has to offer over the holiday season!
