Everyone has a favorite place to stay in Myrtle Beach for vacation. Well Ocean Lakes is a place many call their favorite destination place when coming down on vacation. It's a gated community that allows the interior to be safe from traffic coming through as well as enjoying their private beach and family friendly facilities. Above all else though, many people enjoy time down on their own miniature version of the famed Myrtle Beach Boulevard. The preferred mode of transportation is golf carts and after dark every night, they all line up to play their music and have a good time riding around. Being a family friendly resort, nothing ever gets out of hand because there are just as many parents and small children as there are young adults and teenagers.
Over the Fourth of July this year, I spent some time with my family down there enjoying the beautiful weather and then decided to join them down on the boulevard to take in the sights and have a good time. During the day, there was a parade with the golf carts where they give out prizes for the craziest decorations and judging by what I saw, everyone saved their costumes, lights and decorations to enjoy the reactions down on the boulevard. Made for a pretty fun night. Enjoy!
