2) Avoid the tourist restaurants, primarily on River Street. There are plenty of wonderful places to eat throughout the Historic District. Many locals, in fact, go to Bay or Broughton Streets, where they can find good food for reasonable prices.
We were located on the top floor (so lots of stairs). It was a bit stuffy when we first got there but we threw open the windows and turned on the fan and it was fine. there’s no A/C but because of it’s location on the hillside a gentle breeze was always coming in the windows (from which we could see the Dumo in the city).
Shop around for flights. If you’re coming from America, it’s not cheap to get to Europe. Use a meta-search such as Kayak or Skyscanner to get an idea of which airlines fly your preferred route. But it can be difficult to find out the cheapest dates to fly (typically midweek prices are cheapest). If your dates are relatively flexible, have a look on the individual airline websites – this can take a bit of time but you can potentially make big savings.
Check your fluids – There’s your oil, anti-freeze (it’s not just for winter driving, after all), transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and don’t forget your windshield washer fluid – it rains a lot in the afternoons in the summer. But don’t worry – these storms go as fast as they come. Also, the ocean breezes will create a film on your windshield that you won’t see inland, so you’ll be using your windshield washer fluid a little more often when visiting Myrtle Beach.
Consider giving your loved one a timeshare. A timeshare is like a passport to travel to new and different locations each and every year for life. Learn how to use it correctly and it can take you to amazing locations with accommodations that are gorgeous.Traveling by timeshare is less expensive than any hotel room. And if you are giving it to someone with a young family, it’s even better. That’s who timeshare is geared for. Here’s a breakdown of the best reasons to give timeshare as a Christmas Present.
Timeshares cost less than hotel rooms. If you are given a timeshare, you’ll be on the hook to pay annual maintenance fees of about 0 a year. That’s less than 7 nights in a hotel and you get so much more. And there’s no extra taxes that mysteriously appear on your hotel bill. If you don’t own and you’re considering vacation rentals for your next vacation, then you will pay a little more than owning but still less than a hotel room. If you own, you also have the option of timeshare exchange. Exchanging a timeshare with another owner means you travel to their spot and they travel to yours. That opens so many travel options for you, it’ll make your head spin. There are over 5,000 timeshare resorts in over 100 countries that you can trade for. Exchange fees range from free to 0 per year.
