USA map showing location of South CarolinaSouth Carolina map showing location of Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach is a coastal city on the East Coast of the United States in Horry County, South Carolina. It is in the center of a large and continuous 60-mile stretch of beach known as "The Grand Strand" in northeastern South Carolina.

Ranked as the second fastest-growing metropolitan area in the country (per 2018 census estimates), Myrtle Beach is one of the major centers of tourism in South Carolina and the United States because of the city's warm subtropical climate and extensive beaches, attracting an estimated 14 million visitors each year.

The two RV Gypsies stopped at Margaritaville in Myrtle Beach to eat because they wanted to see the Big Blender show.

Margaritaville is a restaurant paying tribute to Jimmy Buffett and has a really big blender! There is supposed to be a show every hour where a huge bottle of liquor makes a smoking pitcher of margaritas while stilt walkers urge you to get up and sing about your "lost shaker of salt." However, the two RV Gypsies were there on the hour mark and there was no show. They did not inquire about it because Lee said they must have just missed it.

Below: The inside was quite crowded so the two RV Gypsies sat outside and had some appetizers, and of course, Karen had a margarita.

Below: The two RV Gypsies ate at Benjamin's and Karen only took a couple of pictures inside the restaurant. It was a seafood buffet, and although there were lots of choices, the food was cold by the time it was walked back to the table. Because of the Coronavirus, everyone had to wear the plastic gloves provided by the restaurant, plus their face mask, unless seated at their own table.

Below: Tommy at the Giant Crab Restaurant. Tommy is 25 feet tall, 35 feet wide, and weighs 4.5 tons. He was named for the restaurant's owner. With cartoon eyes, dimpled cheeks, and a saucy sailor's cap, he appears to be saluting customers as they enter. "Hope you enjoy tearing off my family's legs!"

ha ha ha

Tommy is identified as the World's Largest by a tastefully small sign on the awning beneath his chin. He's such an overwhelming presence that the two RV Gypsies did not even notice that the restaurant is flanked by a 50-foot-tall fake lighthouse on one side and a fully rigged life-size fake ship on the other side. (Oops - the two RV Gypsies did not go to the side of the building - shame on them)

Below: Captain Jack's Restaurant also had an interesting outside. The two RV Gypsies did not eat there either. Lee is not a big seafood eater. None of the seafood places had lobster on their buffet, which is Karen's favorite seafood.
