Around Your Hotel: Breakers Resort
Breakers Resort– 21st Avenue North, Myrtle Beach
The Breakers is ideally located on the north end of downtown Myrtle Beach, making it close enough to walk to many major attractions on the strip yet far enough away to avoid the noise and traffic congestion that often surrounds the heart of downtown.
Dining, shopping, entertainment and attractions within walking distance of the resort are aplenty, so it may be hard to hit them all during your stay. Here’s a list of some of the top options in the neighborhood:
* Fine Dining: Just one block up 21st Avenue North is Soho, a unique restaurant that offers a variety of fusion treats. The sushi is fresh and innovative, and the Asian fusion dishes are to die for. Soho attracts an eclectic crowd, with many locals taking advantage of happy hour and tourists making it a nice night out on the town. Just across Kings Highway is a complex of three fine dining option – Kansas Steakhouse, Kono and Brazilian Grill.
* Casual Dining: One of the most relaxing restaurants on all the Grand Strand sits next door to Breakers – Bummz Beach Bar and Grill. The outdoor patio features a lovely view of the beach and live music on the open-air deck. The food ranges from basic – Philly cheese steaks and burgers – to upscale – seafood and salads. Other hot spots in the area include Dirty Don’s Oyster Bar, Hooks Calabash Seafood, Carline’s Cafe, Pier 14, Olive Garden, Ramondo’s, New York Cafe, Fuddrucker’s and Shoney’s.
* Fast food: Just one block south on Ocean Boulevard is a new eatery offering breakfast, lunch and dinner 24 hours a day. Lulu’s Cafe is a ’50s-style diner with a modern twist. Traditional dishes have been updated and upgraded to accommodate diverse taste buds. Breakfast is especially tasty, affordable and served around the clock. Also check out the Bagel Factory, Jimmy John’s, River City Cafe, McDonald’s, Arby’s, Subway, Taco Bell, Ultimate California Pizza, Harry’s Pancake House, Hot Stacks and Michael’s Pizza.
* Bars: Whether you’re looking for an afternoon of cold beers and frozen drinks or an evening out of dancing, this neighborhood has something for everyone. Bummz’ also serves as a popular local watering hole and there are other oceanfront bars at neighboring resorts. One block inland is Knuckleheads, which for years was an institution known as Chairman’s Corner, a neighborhood watering hole, while Club Icon is the place to get dressed up and dance. Other adults hangouts include Soho, Dirty Don’s and the on-site Patio Bar.
* Shopping: There are several major retail outlets and beachwear stores within walking distance for a shopping stroll around the block, including Native Sons, Eagles, Wings, Dollar General and K-Mart, as well as some small shopping stores. But you also are a short drive from Broadway at the Beach, about a mile up 21st Avenue North, where all the major retail stores and novelty shops are located. It’s worth the short trip to check out Broadway.
* Attractions: Captain Hook’s Adventure Golf is just a long putt across Kings Highway, but Broadway at the Beach is the main stop for all your shopping, dining and entertainment. Celebrity Square offers more than a dozen bars featuring live music and dancing. Just across 21st Avenue North sits BB&T Coastal Field, home of the minor-league Myrtle Beach Pelicans baseball team. Check the schedule and if the team is in town it’s a good time for the whole family. Both locations often shoot off fireworks in the evening as a nightcap to the fun.
