The Strip

While in Myrtle Beach, there are many of the same buildings lining the street. Bright yellow buildings that are full of crap to buy, like Myrtle Beach magnets, MB t-shirts, MB mugs, MB stick-on-tatoos, and swords or knives. Then there are the Calabash buffets, each claiming they are the original, each one a blue building looking authentic with it's nautical surroundings. There's the Benjamin's Original Calabash, there's the Bennett's Calabash, there's Captain Benjamin's Calabash, there's the Lord's Calabash and so forth and so on.

Driving down the street is like driving down The Strip in Vegas. Just smaller. Tackier. But it's almost equally as bright. The only similarity between the two are the random Walgreens on the corners.
