South Carolina, Myrtle Beach Guide (B): North Myrtle Beach Places Worth Visiting
I’m finally kicking off my Myrtle Beach travel series! I spent one week in Myrtle Beach with my family this spring. We were a mix of adults, teenagers and my little nephew, who was 1 year and a few months at the time we visited. So, the activities shared are fun for the WHOLE family. And I’ll be sharing all my tips and tricks for visiting over the course of the next couple weeks. This first post will be all about our day spent at Alligator Adventure and Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach.
Alligator Adventure is dubbed “The Reptile Capital of the World.” And you guessed it, they get you up close and personal with tons of alligators and other critters. Barefoot Landing is an outdoor shopping center with many different stores, wineries, restaurants and other entertainment. These two places are right next to each other.
I have no special love for alligators or reptiles of any kind. So, I did not go into “Alligator Adventure” thinking I would enjoy it. However, I was fascinated by the many different types of alligators housed here. They even have an alligator who is over 18 feet long! (His name is Utan, and he stayed in the water when we were there. So, I couldn’t get a very great photo of him.) There are also Albino Alligators and alligators from all over the world, including Thailand and Egypt! Some of these guys are pretty crazy looking. ......
