I love bay area. There are so many reasons why I love to stay here…. The weather- It doesn’t change very suddenly( almost like India), Peoples- when you walk on road, you’ll be able to see so many faces which makes a lively environment(most of the desi faces, which feels like we are in our country), Attractions- in a hour drive, you have so many thing to see and enjoy. The restaurants- There are so many restaurants of different cuisines,, I just want to say, you have got every reason to stay in bay area. Well, not talking about house pricing 😛

When I moved to Raleigh, NC for 3-4 months 2 years back. I did not like it much because of weather. I was feeling very lonely, but luckily some of my hubby’s friends and their families really took a very good care of us, they were making sure that we won’t feel lonely there. I was really missing bay area for everything. We didn’t get much chance to travel while we were living in Raleigh. The weather was there quite humid, but the sudden change in weather was so depressing for me and I just wanted to get out of home, where I can feel refreshed and happy. We did plan something on weekends but it couldn’t workout because of weather. One day all families decided to go somewhere for a long weekend, It was summer. We planned to go to the beach and that’s how we got chance to see Myrtle beach. We packed some food, snacks for our stay, as we had some kids with us. We rented a beach house which was very beautiful. We started our journey from our home to Myrtle beach on Friday afternoon. It was 4 hour drive form Morrisville, Raleigh.

Myrtle beach is a coastal city in South Carolina. It is situated on the center of a large and continuous stretch of beach known as the Grand Strand in northeastern South Carolina. Myrtle Beach is one of the major centers of tourism in the United States because of the city’s warm subtropical climate and extensive beaches. The warm Atlantic Ocean reaches higher temperature in the summer months off Myrtle Beach, making for warm and sultry summer nights. Summer thunderstorms are common in the hot season in Myrtle Beach but it was cold in the night.
About food:
If you love seafood, then you got thousands of restaurant but if you are vegetarian….. Then make sure you pack some homemade stuffs for you. It’s very hard to find vegetarian menu in these restaurants!

Helicopter Rides:
Only for $20 and you will enjoy the view of myrtle beach from the top of Myrtle Beach :). Unfortunately I didn’t get chance to do it 😦
The Slingshot ride, located at Ocean Boulevard welcomes all the tough ones for a ride. The Slingshot Ride operates as a backwards bungee jump and catapults people into the air at heights that will reach up to 180 feet. It will bounce you up and down and upside down and it will give you a beautiful view of the Atlantic Coast and Myrtle Beach.
