Easter Weekend in Myrtle Beach – Church and Lunch Recommendations

Easter weekend is like our kickoff to the season. The beach is packed, the flowers are in bloom and everything is green and beautiful! We look forward to the beginning of all the tourists that come to the beach for their annual vacations.   If you are visiting during Easter weekend and are looking for a church to visit on Sunday we have a variety to choose from. First Presbyterian Church , Christ United Methodist and Ocean View Baptist  are a few of my favorites. First Presbyterian and Ocean View Baptist are more traditional services and attire. Christ United Methodist is a casual atmosphere with a contemporary service. There are also a few Sunrise services in Myrtle Beach and Murrells Inlet.  All are great and would love to have you visit. A tradition in my family has always been church then a big lunch. If cooking is not on your list of things you want to do on vacation don’t worry we have lots of places to choose from. Easter fills up fast so I recommend making reservations somewhere in advance. A few of my favorites are The Sea Captains House, Carolina Roadhouse, Croissants, Magnolias and Chestnut Hill. We hope you enjoy your Easter Weekend here in Myrtle Beach where there is always something fun to do. Have a blessed Easter from our family to yours !!

What are Home Owner Associations ?

hoa-hoodIf you are looking at properties and wonder what these HOA fees are and what they cover you are not alone. Home Owner Association fees are very prevalent here at the beach. If you are looking for a second home or an investment property HOA’s can be a great thing. Also if you are someone who doesn’t like yard work or fixing things.  Each Home Owner Association maintains each property differently , however some take care of everything from the sheet rock out meaning the entire exterior of your property is maintained by them and you don’t have to lift a finger. For instance some communities in Myrtle Beach like Antigua have homes that all look alike. They pressure wash the homes for you, trim the hedges, cut the grass, maintain the common areas, etc. Myrtle Pointe in Plantation Point has an HOA that includes, basic cable, water, trash pick up, exterior maintenance, common areas, pool, clubhouse and wireless internet. Be sure to ask your agent what the monthly fees are, have their been any previous assessments, are new assessments coming up, what does the HOA fee cover , etc. Here are Dargan Real Estate we are here to answer any questions you have. Contact us today with all your real estate needs.

Best Waterfront Restaurants around Myrtle Beach

When in Myrtle Beach locals and tourists love a waterfront restaurant. After all , being in a beach town makes us all want to be on and around the water as much as possible. One of my personal favorites is The Sea Captain’s House. It was an old beach home converted into a restaurant years and years ago. The views are wonderful and the food is even better. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Bumz is another great spot in Myrtle Beach located on the beach. Pier 14 is also another great waterfront spot. It’s more casual and has great food as well. The Anchor is located on the Intracoastal Waterway and it’s great for watching the boats go by. Heading further south there  is Gulf Stream Cafe , Bovines, Drunken Jacks, Wicked Tuna, The Fish House, Creek Rats, and so many more. We know all the hot spots in our area whether its waterfront restaurants or waterfront real estate we have you covered here at Dargan Real Estate.  Pier 14

Garden City offers some great beach homes that make excellent investment properties. These homes can be oceanfront or a few rows from the ocean and overlooking the marsh. They rent extremely well. Most homes are on a rental program and owners block off a few weeks for themselves throughout the year.  This way they have a home that they get to use and then  it’s making them money as well. These homes are perfect for families, golfers, multiple families vacationing together, etc. Garden City is a great quaint area that allows for walking to Sam’s Corner, the arcade, and other restaurants that are very close by.  I personal have spent a  great deal of time in Garden City as my family owned a home their for years. I have many memories of being on our dock watching the firework display and the boat parade go by on the fourth of July.  Garden City offers a relaxed beach town environment that you are sure to enjoy!
