For a non-native, I feel like I’m pretty familiar with the Myrtle Beach area. It’s one of my favorite vacation spots, and that shouldn’t be all too surprising: I am from Pittsburgh, after all. You don’t have to look hard to find Steelers gear in shops, there’s plenty of businesses with “Pittsburgh” right in the name, and once the pizza delivery guy who delivered to us even had a Pen’s hat on. He said he was doing the same job in the Burgh, so one morning he and his friends woke up and decided to start delivering on the beach. So to Myrtle Beach they went!
One new attraction that’s been put up since the last time I was there is the Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center. And it sounds pretty dang fun:
“The new Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center is great for families visiting Myrtle Beach. Just look for the Great Ape climbing the building on 21st Avenue North at the Highway 17 Bypass, and you’ll have found the fun! All in one building, you can pose with your favorite stars at the Hollywood Wax Museum, go on a gallant adventure to save a trapped princess in Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors, and escape from a zombie-infested lab in Outbreak.”
I’ve done mirror mazes at the beach before, but this one sounds epic with 288 potential turns. And the price is right, too. Last time I went to a mirror maze, it ran me $20. And that’s all I got. Was the mirror maze. (Though it was all-day access.) For $25, you get all three attractions, kids 4-11 are $15, and 3 and under are F-R-E-E.
Plus, Femme Frugality readers get an extra $2 off. Just saying. You’re welcome, yinzer beach-goers. (And all other beach-goers, too.)
Are you headed somewhere fun this summer? What’s your favorite way to save?
