Christmas on the Coast of the Carolina's

We are doing our annul Christmas Vacation on the Coast of Carolina,
right now we are planning Charleston to Sunset Island NC. We will be
dining at Hominey Grill and Scott's BBQ for sure. Are there any suggestions
on where to eat and stay between the two destinations? We will spend some
time in Myrtle Beach but not necessarily the night.How about good spots for
boiled Peanuts and Brunswick Stew??

  1. Since Chowhound is just about the food, I can tell you where to eat. Look at Tripadvisor and ask there about places to stay.

    It's only about 3 hours from Charleston to Sunset Beach. There a two nice towns between Charleston and Myrtle: McClellanville and Georgetown. Mc'ville is worth a stop-lovely little fishing villages, but litle else for tourists to do. Georgetown is a mill town, the mill is closes, so it's depressed, but there are some nice places on the Riverwalk to sit outside and have lunch f it's not too chilly.

    Just north of Mt. Pleasant you'll find the Sewwee Restaurant-it's totally worth a stop.

    Brunswick Stew is more of an NC thing and boiled peanuts will be out of season. You might be able to find some at Myrtle, but I'm not sure where.

    I've been to Chive Blossom at Pawleys a couple of time and enjoyed it.

      The steel mill is still opened ...thank God....My favorite in Georgetown is Limpin Janes. lovely waterfront historic area...
      see wee is awesome....I have ate there three times in the last ten days...wait actually it is four.
      Boiled peanuts are at almost every roadside veggie stand in the Myrtle Beach area...such as the one on the corner of Atlantic and hwy 17 in surfside.

        Thanks , Miss Lala. You always know more than I do. But do you think roadside peanut stands will be there at Christmas?
