    Being from HHI, I would disagree about the best beaches.

    However, I used to love MB when it was that shabby little beach town with all the Mom n' Pop motels on OD, the Pavilion, the Boardwalk, Peaches Corner, the Bowery, etc. IMO, Burroughs & Chapin ruined MB and it is now just Branson, Missouri with a coast. Please tell me that Fat Harold's Beach Club is still there.

    I didn't. Grew up in Greer. Lived in the HHI / Bluffton area for 19 years. Are you related to the Bluffton Heywards?

    Kids went to HHCA until HS. One went to Bluffton, the other goes to May River.

    MB is super commercialized, you really should stay somewhere in Surfside. That place with the cheap coffee and the pier restaurant / arcade is where it's at.

    I use to stay in the Myrtle Beach area when I was young and drive up to OD just to go to Fat Harolds. As I got older I realized it wasn't a good idea to do that and be driving back about 3 shades to the wind, so now we just stay in OD(real homesy feel) walk to Fat Harolds and Ducks and don't worry about driving. We usually stay at Ashworth. Fat Harold passed away about two years ago but his place is still going strong.

    Spent many many many great nights in Myrtle Beach when younger and living in Georgetown Great place in the 50s and 60s. Some nights I was even sober and still had a good time.

    Of course my main stomping ground was Pawleys Island back in the Pavilion days.
