Myrtle Beach Happy Hour

Hi I'm heading to NMB this summer and I was wondering where do you think has a great happy hour with a view? Also, has anyone driven down rte 301 to avoid the Balt/DC/NVa traffic, if so how was the drive and how much longer was it?

  1. We're back and forth from SC to NYC several times a year. I started taking the 301 alternate a couple of years ago. I think it's quicker, but it really depends on what time you hit the beltway. The stretch from Baltimore to Fredericksburg is crappy from about 3:00 pm until 8:00 pm. 301 has a bunch of strip malls/traffic lights, but it at least moves.

    If you get there late at night (after 8:00) or around midday, I'd stay on 95. Rush hour times, take 301.

      Thank you that's very helpful...last time I I took 95 I was in traffic for 3hrs all the way from BWP to Fredericksburgh...I should have been at my hotel by 4 didn't get there until 7. I would like to jump in the HOV lane.

    2. Just a quick request that people focus on the food portion of this question, rather than the driving bit. Thanks!

      1. Has anyone gone to Joes Bar and Grill in NMB with their Raccoon Deck?
