The preferred destination for many Grand Strand vacationers, North Myrtle Beach is generally regarded as classier and less crowded than its flashy neighbor Myrtle Beach, just to the south. But that doesn’t mean renting a vacation condo in North Myrtle Beach means less to do, with one of its main draw the world renowned Barefoot Resort and Barefoot Landing, laid out along the Intracoastal Waterway.
For the kids, there’s TIGERS Preservation Station where they can get up close and personal with tigers, apes and other wildlife. One of the largest reptile collections in the world can be found at Alligator Adventure with more than 700 alligators and crocodiles, along with lizards, snakes, tropical birds and more.
In the nearby Barefoot Resort, golfers staying in any of Barefoot’s great condos for rent or elsewhere will find Nirvana, with four of the best courses on the planet designed by four of golf’s legendary names – David Love III, Tom Fazio, Pete Dye and Greg Norman.
For vacationers in the many great North Myrtle Beach condos for rent, Barefoot Landing offers more than 100 retail shops along its boardwalk from national companies to small local ones offering art, jewelry, clothing, accessories, shoes, toys, food and more. With a 27-acre lake at its center, Barefoot Landing is not only a great place to shop, but to relax in the sun and people watch or enjoy the variety of wildlife that makes its home there.
For boaters, there’s the Barefoot Marina, a full service marina that’s one of the finest on the East Coast. For great shows, there’s the chills and thrills of family shows at Ghosts & Legends Theatre and some of the nation’s top music acts at Alabama Theatre. Great food and great live music from some of the nation’s top stars as well as up and coming artists can be found at the House of Blues.
And as for dining, a few of the many prominent restaurants include Fire Island Grille, Flying Fish Public Market & Grill, Greg Norman’s Australian Grill, House of Blues, and T Bonz Gill & Grill.
