As much as I am sharing these travel posts with you all on this blog, they’re also to document it for ourselves. You know, like a journal that my little family and I will look back to in many years to come.
It has been exactly a week since we walked on the boardwalk at Myrtle Beach. A part of me wishes that we are still there enjoying the sea breeze and embracing all the fun moments as a family.
Dominating the skyline in downtown Myrtle Beach and visible for miles, the SkyWheel places up to six riders in climate-controlled “gondolas,” for a slow, spectacular spin over the Boardwalk on the oceanfront.
It is not too expensive to go on the SkyWheel. The regular ticket price per adult costs $12 and thankfully, Annakate isn’t three yet. So, she got a free ride and we had coupons of $1 off per person. (Yay for coupons!)
Annakate was definitely captivated by the scenic view of the oceanfront and could not cease to tell us “Mommy, look… beach! Daddy, it’s the beach!”
Pier 14, located on 14th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach, is one of the top attractions at Myrtle Beach. We saw the pier from the SkyWheel and decided to check out this pier.
Considering this pier is privately owned and maintained, a dollar isn’t bad to go out – especially if you want to fish for a while. The ticket is valid for the entire day too.
As you can see from the picture above, this pier is visited by anglers and tourists. And of course, we were not there to fish. We were there (obviously) to take as many photos as we could.
Being frumpy and pregnant, I could not walk as much as I could normally do. Hence, Pier 14 was our last stop for the day before we drove back to the hotel.
I apologize I did not capture many views of the oceanfront or the boardwalk. Please forgive the absent-minded pregnant brains of mine. I totally forgot about it.
If anything, we were more than delighted to have this opportunity to visit Myrtle Beach as a family. Stay tuned for Part 3 (final one, I promise!) and have a blessed week ahead.
