Barefoot Princess Riverboat Review

Barefoot Prin

Barefoot Princess Riverboat Myrtle Beach is The Grand Strand’s ONLY Tour and Dinner Riverboat on the Intracoastal Waterway.

It features a relaxing afternoon with a narrated Sightseeing Cruise, a 2-hour evening Dinner Cruise, or a Sunset or Fireworks Cruise to end your day. We took the relaxing afternoon cruise. They had music and cook out food for purchase. It was very reasonably priced. There were several floors but we decided to sit on the top of the desk.

I have to say this was a lovely 2 hour cruise with my kids and Shannon at Coupon Savings in the South. The kids had a nice time and I got to see some awesome houses on the tour. It is a really nice way to get to see Myrtle Beach from the water. We will need to check out the evening cruise the next time we are in town.

Good Vibrations, Myrtle Beach

good vibratons

Good Vibrations, the newest live show in Calvin Gilmore Theater, is a virtual tour of the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties that is full of the sights and sounds of those memorable decades.

The best music of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, blended with rich multimedia screens, special effects, and elaborate costuming, all performed live by the award-winning cast of The Carolina Opry. This fast-paced, high-energy show will take you back to the decades that brought us the best in American popular music – The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Cyndi Lauper, James Brown, Tina Turner, and even KISS just to name a few! Even the comedy is from earlier eras with appearances from some of your favorite TV and film personalities of earlier decades. We guarantee you won’t see anything like this on the Grand Strand!

The show was filled with singing and dancing. Then they took some time to do a little bit of stand up comedy. It was a great blend of music and humor. The kids really enjoyed the dancing and the ability to meet the cast at the end of the show. We found the show to be one for every age. I will let parents know that your young children may dance in the aisle. I couldn’t keep mine in their seat and since they weren’t tall enough to obstruct anyone’s vision I just let them dance and sing along. I think music is a wonderful memory to added to any trip. It is the one thing that unites everyone and brings joy and happiness to those that can hear.

I think one of our favorite parts of the show were the comedy sections. the jokes were funny and tasteful and my children didn’t catch the jokes that were meant for the older crew. I am still laughing over the jokes. I can’t imagine not making this a part of your trip if you come to South Carolina, Myrtle Beach.

This is some of my crew and a friend of my crew with the awesome All That members. They allow the fans to come and take a picture with them which was a big hit with my little ones!

BJ’s Wholesale Club Review

These are my kids who love shopping with me at BJ’s Wholesale Club because the get their favorite snack in large quantities. This my friends is like food Christmas or in my case Hanukah. I save so much money and it really does make packing lunch for three kids easy and being snack mom for soccer a breeze.

bj whole sale club

1 You can order things online. That means some of the stuff you see int  he club comes in different colors, shapes, or sizes. That is especially helpful when selecting anything from trampolines to kids furniture colors and set options.

2 They have car insurance. They also sell cars. We will count this as just one thing. Yes, I know it is two. They go hand in hand if you buy a car at a discount there you might as well save on the car insurance. I am serious no one cares if you pay less.

cheese aisle

3 They allow you to use coupons. Yes, paper coupons. The ones you find in the paper, online, and on products. They have name brand stuff so you can actually save even more. They have gourmet cheese. I will admit I have a cheese issue. If I do not have my cheese there is an issue!

veggies

4 They have name brand products and food at 30%- 60% off daily. Look at those fresh veggies. Who can resist fresh veggies. They go great with cheese.

5 You can buy furniture for a REALLY inexpensive price and it is high quality. I sat on the patio set and all I can say is wow!

6 They have an award worthy selection of holiday decor and cards

7 They have gluten free bakery options. They also have nut free options!

8. You can have custom made cakes done for a “song”

lunch meat

9. They have a deli counter where you can have your meat cut and in my opinion their Dietz and Watson It blows away Boars head.

10. They have everything you need for babies from furniture, strollers, diapers, bottles, and more.

Landmark Resort Myrtle Beach SC

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post but all opinions are mine.

Landmark Resort Myrtle Beach SC

landmark

The Landmark Resort is located oceanfront, giving guests easy access to the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean, but it also has many outdoor and seasonal indoor pool options. The water park is the perfect spot for warm weather fun for the whole family but the resort also offers a seasonally enclosed indoor pool area, including a 300 foot lazy river ride, a kiddie pool and separate kiddie lazy river, and five whirlpools. All guests can also appreciate the safe access the resort provides over busy Ocean Boulevard with its covered crosswalk, as well as the delicious food served at its restaurant. The Landmark Resort offers all the pool options, as well as free access to a nine-hole mini-golf course, when guests book one of its comfortable, affordable rooms.

Myrtle Beach Review

The Landmark Resort

I was asked to visit Myrtle Beach with my family to provide you with the reality of traveling with three children. I currently reside in Virginia and the 7 hour drive was daunting at first. I got the car organized and loaded in the kids with the promise that I would enjoy Myrtle Beach. It is after all a family vacation spot. The drive was pleasant thanks to a great lunch and DVD players and a couple of travel games like the travel desk for kids.

landmark hotel review

We arrived at the hotel and were greeted Immediately by Lea at the front desk. Everyone during the entire stay from the cleaning staff to the pool staff said, “Hello”. You can tell that customer service is stressed at the Landmark Resort. I enjoyed being able to pull my car up and taking my luggage to our suite. I was a bit confused by the fact that our rom was on the outside of the hotel. I believe that had to do with three kids in a car for 7 hours more than my lack of intelligence. We opened our door to our room and were pleasantly surprised by the room. It was spacious and clean. It had one tub and two toilets which is very helpful with three children. The only flaw is the couch isn’t a pull out. I luckily have short children so one slept on the couch without issue. I realized I failed to take pictures of the room. I think that was a result of the kids squealing with delight and throwing all their stuff down, peeling off their clothes, and dragging me to the indoor pool under the hotel. You can’t take pictures of a messy room. You can see how messy the kids made the room in the pictures below but that is part of vacation living in the moment. There was ample storage and we each unpacked our clothes into the provided drawers.

review of the landmark hotel

 

I really enjoyed having the kitchen. It was nice to be able to cook my meals and save money. There was a full size table which as you can tell had a big screen TV above.

I thought I would share my shopping list with you so if you’re lucky enough to stay here you would pick these items up at the store

Paper towels

Paper plates

Napkins

Sponge

Plastic silverware (4 pieces of silverware are provided)

Scissors

We made eggs, pancakes, bacon for breakfast. Then for lunch we had sandwiches and chips with fruit. We went out for dinner but next time I am bringing my crockpot because then we could spend more time enjoying the beach.

I also appreciated that Food Lion is in walking distance of the hotel if you do not have a car. They do have a garage and a covered walkway across the road so that makes staying at this hotel a breeze. I found ample parking and was able to navigate easily around the town. The real key to why I would stay at the Landmark again is the underground pool and spa.

pool

We really enjoyed our stay since we had quick access to the beach and the indoor pool with water features it was a huge hit. I was honestly not sure my children would ever want to leave. They loved the pools, lazy river, water features, and hot tubs.

landmark hotel review

We found that you could easily stay at the hotel without leaving for anything and still feel satisfied that you had a great vacation. I mean this is the view from my room. Do you blame me for not wanting to leave?

landmark review

 

I also appreciated the onsite restaurant that offered pleasant service and great food. We had the breakfast buffet and it was affordable and my kids and myself were stuffed. It featured eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, fruit, and juice among other family favorites.

landmark review

 

I would also let you know the Internet is okay they have plenty of networks available but the signal wasn’t always that best. I found I really didn’t care. I was here to play with my children and enjoy life. I could check and respond to my emails at night. I feel relaxed and happy and that is what life is about isn’t it?  I would suggest giving the Landmark hotel I visit. I found it to be a great hotel for the beach. It had great access to parking and the beach and it was located near everything you would need.

landmark resort

I miss the view already and the fun we had. The great thing is I know I will return to Myrtle Beach again because we had so much fun and we have the shells to prove it!
