It’s the day after the Memorial Holiday weekend in Virginia Beach, Virginia. One would think the beach and beachtown would still be overflowing with vacationers, however it is surprisingly very peaceful … Why? The weather is cloudy with a light rain … a perfect opportunity to enjoy peaceful bliss at the beach! Listen to the waves crash on the shore. Listen to the seagulls chirp. Feel the ocean breeze on your face and in your hair. Look at how far and wide the ocean extends … as far as the eye can see … Stretch out your arms and see if you can match the vastness of the ocean. The ocean is a natural stress reliever. If you are unable to travel to the beach, take a virtual trip to the beach! Watch and listen to the beach video below …

Top #Retirement Destination #MyrtleBeach! #retire #retireinspired

Anderson Park @ Myrtle Beach SC over 50

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is one of the top retirement destinations is the U.S.A.! We discovered Myrtle Beach a few years ago, and thoroughly enjoy vacationing in this tropical paradise! On our last trip, as we walked down Ocean Boulevard, we noticed Anderson Park, a free public park that is right on the beach. The park is filled with palm trees, benches, and swings. You can feel the salt water breeze blow through your hair. Some people don’t like to get sand on their feet, so they can sit in the park and still enjoy the beach atmosphere.

 

Our top 4 reasons for vacationing in Myrtle Beach:

  1. As soon as you cross the state line into South Carolina, you see beautiful Palm Trees!
  2. The climate in South Carolina feels like the Caribbean. If you love the Caribbean, you will love Myrtle Beach!
  3. Reasonable prices for hotels, food, gas, and entertainment will help stretch your vacation dollar!
  4. There is lots to do in Myrtle Beach, including entertainment venues such as Broadway at the Beach, Dolly Parton’s Pirates Voyage Dinner and Show, and the Hollywood Wax Museum.

5 Ways to #Refresh & #Rejuvenate at the #Beach! #fitness

Going to the ocean is like going back to the source. Watching the waves crash to shore, feeling the sand vibrate and move beneath your bare feet, shows the powerful force of the ocean. Watching, listening, and feeling the power of the ocean is mesmerizing. Whenever we want to refresh, rejuvenate, and reduce stress, we head to the ocean! Here are 5 ways to refresh and rejuvenate at the beach:

  1. Take a deep breath of salty air. (Inhale and count to 7. Hold for 7 seconds. Blow out while counting to 7.)
  2. Dig your toes into the wet sand.
  3. Close your eyes and listen to the waves crashing to shore.
  4. Get up early and watch the pelicans hover over the ocean looking for breakfast.
  5. Watch the dolphins play in the morning. Virginia Beach has schools of dolphins that are very active in the morning. At the Ramada Inn on the north end, we could eat breakfast and look out of the huge picture window to see the dolphins! How exciting!

To save money, take a day trip to the beach. If you can drive to the beach in 4 hrs or less, make the trip and come back the same day. When I was a child, my Dad loved taking us to Ocean City. We would wake up on a summer Saturday morning and he would say, “Ready for the beach?!” Of course we were! We grabbed our towels and pillows, and raced to the car! Great memories …
