It is always fun to find something new in a place that is familiar. Greg and I got to take in a date and do just that at the Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center while we were vacationing in his hometown of Myrtle Beach. Since Myrtle is a popular travel destination for Burghers, we teamed up with the museum and US Family Guide to tell you more about the experience. (We were provided tickets to this venue in exchange for our honest thoughts. All opinions are 100% our own.)

Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center – Myrtle Beach
If you love to travel with family, I’m willing to bet that Myrtle Beach is on your list. My husband grew up there, we met there, Arianna was born there…so while it holds a special place in our hearts, we truly love vacationing there too.
Last week, I got the chance to bring my best friend to the Resting Place to join me for Girls Week 2014. Our time was all too short, so now I am going to whine a bit. You know how I do.
Missy and I left her house at 6:00 PM last Friday after I pulled out of work at 4. We had a full tank of gas, cds that were with us in high school, and high energy. We were trying really hard to beat the snow to Holidaysburg, a crazy hilly area in PA. At the outskirts of Indiana, it was clear it wasn’t happening.
About six years ago, someone (who worked in construction) showed me a photo of a job he was about to start work on. It was an upside down house, but he couldn’t tell me more about it because it was “top secret”. Well, it was one of Myrtle Beach’s newer attractions, Wonderworks, and my family and I finally took the time to visit it last week.
This post is brought to you by the NaBloPoMo July prompts from BlogHer. This month, I am writing about connections.
Today’s Prompt: Where is your favorite place to connect with friends?
I have a sacred place, do you? My sacred place has always been Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. And before any of you Myrtle Manor haters start laughing at me, just listen. (Because I’ll get to where my favorite place is to connect with friends, and it’s related.)
One of the things I really loved about our recent vacation is that the resort had tons of activities scheduled throughout the week. There wasn’t time to do everything (like making candles or salt scrubs, taking a cooking class, or playing Wii), but we sure loved the things that we got to do.
Last week our family traveled back to Myrtle Beach to vacation with my family and attend Greg’s 10 year High School Reunion. We went to part of the Carolina Forest football game (but left at halftime after we could barely hear the announcement of their attendance) then over to Handley’s for some hanging out. It was nice to meet Greg’s friends from “back when” and learn that there are Pittsburgh Steelers fans everywhere. 🙂
Life seriously doesn’t get better than this, does it? We have been enjoying sunshine, dirt roads, sweet tea, swimming, and family. Arrr, matey!
