Have You Gotten Your Run in Lately?

For those of you vacationing in the area and staying in our Garden City Beach SC house rentals and even for those people who live locally, there are a couple of runs coming up that are so worthy we want to encourage you to come out and run with us.

Garden City Beach SC house rentalsLace up your sneakers for some early Saturday morning exercise as you run or walk through the marsh-front, oak-shaded streets of Murrells Inlet for the 8th Annual Race for the Inlet. The event features a 5K walk and run, with optional chip timing, an 8K chip-timed run and a 5K chip-timed stroller run. All events start and end at Morse Park Landing on Highway 17 Business (next to the Hot Fish Club) in Murrells Inlet. All events begin at 8 a.m. Participants can run or walk through Murrells Inlet on the USATF certified courses. It is a fun event suitable for all ages and skill levels.

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life will be held on Friday, April 5 from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. at Grand Park. The event is free to the public, tobacco free, alcohol free, family friendly and fun! All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society. There will be Inflatables, food (all kinds), games, music, dancing and walking. The event starts at 7:00 p.m. and goes until 7:00 a.m. the next morning. Local businesses, organizations, schools, friends and clubs form teams. They each have a campsite around the track and their team members take turns walking. The short reason why we go over night is that cancer never sleeps. Opening ceremonies celebrate those who are cancer survivors. Cancer survivors take the first lap. Around 10 p.m., there will be a candle light vigil to remember those that lost their battle to cancer and at 7 a.m., a pledge to continue to fight back against cancer will take place.

Babyproofing Your Accommodations

For those of you traveling with a baby you will have a whole world of precautions to take to keep your baby safe. When you make your reservations for a vacation rental make sure you let the rental company know that you will be traveling with your baby. There are some vacation rentals that provide baby equipment (cribs, highchairs, play yards, etc.) in their rentals for no extra charge. When you’re browsing accommodations check the list of amenities to see if they’re mentioned.

13?Surfside Beach SC resortWhen you make your plans to stay at a Surfside Beach SC resort or anywhere else you’ll need to plan on babyproofing all the rooms immediately upon arrival. Depending on how mobile your baby is you may need to move objects that are in easy reach to avoid breakage and to keep your baby safe. Definitely put all glass objects up and out of reach.

When choosing a room where your baby will sleep at the Surfside Beach SC resort that you’ve chosen, pick one that is away from the most noise. You’ll want the baby’s room close by your bedroom though so don’t choose a rental with split bedrooms. While that’s beneficial when you have teens it doesn’t work as well with infants and small children that require closer attention to their needs.

If your baby is mobile and there are no safety plugs in the electrical outlets pick up your own at any nearby grocery or drug store and insert them in all outlets within reach. They’re inexpensive and the life you save may be your child’s.

Once your accommodations are fully babyproofed you can get on with the business of having an enjoyable and relaxing vacation with your baby. We'll see you on the beach!

When You're Ready to Relocate to SC

If you have finally made the decision to move to coastal South Carolina — congratulations! Many of our seasonal visitors to the area are just waiting until retirement so they can make here fulltime. Others come during the winter months and head back north to spend their summers, until the day arrives when they, too, decide to make a permanent relocation to South Carolina.

Surfside Beach SC annual rentalsOnce you decide to move here you should know that we have many Surfside Beach SC annual rentals available for you once you arrive. You can stay in these Surfside Beach SC annual rentals while you’re looking for the right property to buy. It’s always wise to live as a renter until you get a feel for the area and can make an informed decision about where you want to live. It’s one thing to move from one rental to another, but it’s a whole other thing to have to put a house on the market and sell it and then buy another just because you hurriedly purchased a house in the wrong neighborhood.

Contact us today about an annual rental and when you’re coming. Don’t wait until you get here as you can view properties on our website and secure the rentals from there. Then, when you’re ready to look at properties to buy, we can help you with that also. Call us toll free anytime at 800-833-8231.
