Accommodations on a Myrtle Beach golf getaway don’t get much better than a stay at Kingston Plantation, which is an island to itself amid a sea of some of the Grand Strand's best layouts.
With a wide range of accommodations to suit your needs and top-notch amenities that include its own water park and other recreational facilities, as well as four on-site restaurants and grills and three bars, one could spend a week at Kingston Plantation without leaving.
But with some of the best Myrtle Beach golf courses and hot spots just a short drive away, you'll want to explore your surroundings. Here are some of the nearby attractions you'll want to check out:
* Golf: Kingston Plantation is one of the few resorts to have its own on-site course, with Arcadian Shores Golf Club only a golf-cart ride away. Designed by Rees Jones and praised in various national golf magazines, Arcadian Shores also features lighted practice facilities so you can work on your game after the sun sets.
* Dining: In addition to Cafe Amalfi and the Fisheye Grill located on-site at Kingston Plantation, Myrtle Beach's famed Restaurant Row is just a short drive inland, giving guests a wide range of dining options. Some popular picks include Chestnut Hill, Cagney's, Rossi's and Thoroughbreds for fine dining and Bimini's, Chuck's Steakhouse and the Chesapeake House for more casual accommodations.
* Attractions: Located between Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, Kingston Plantation is midway between all the major attractions both cities have to offer. Head north for Barefoot Landing, an entertainment and shopping complex that also features the Alabama Theater, Alligator Adventure and The House of Blues, or go south to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Broadway at the Beach.
* Nightlife: Both Barefoot Landing and Broadway at the Beach offer plenty of great clubs, but there are more laid back options closer to home. Bimini's is a popular local’s hangout after dinner hours, and Finn McCool's Irish pub is a great place for a drink after playing your favorite Myrtle Beach golf course. Calli Baker's Firehouse Bar and Grill is another local hot spot, and Ocean Annie's Pool deck Bar just down Shore Drive is the place to be when it's warm.
