Living in a tourist destination has its advantages. One such benefit is friends and family always want to visit. I was fortunate to have some college friends in town the past few days for Spring Break. It was wonderful to spend time with them in the evenings when I wasn’t working. They said they really liked staying in Ocean Drive because they could walk to restaurants on Main Street.
Although I am a local living in Cherry Grove, I often wish I could walk to a restaurant. Sometimes finding a parking spot can be difficult, other times I have spent the afternoon tanning in my backyard and sipping pina coladas. For this reason, I think the vacation rentals Elliott Beach Rentals manages in Ocean Drive are especially appealing because they offer proximity to restaurants, shops and bars; not to mention easy access to the rest of the beach via Robert Edge Parkway.
Since my friends asked me to recommend restaurants along Main Street in North Myrtle Beach, I thought other visitors may appreciate a local’s perspective. I have shared my picks with you below.
