    August | Fun Things To Do in Myrtle Beach

    The sales executives at The Trembley Group Real Estate are experts at more than the Grand Strand housing market. The Trembley Group Realtors are experts on everything about Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand. They know about recreation, golf, civic groups that give back to the community, cultural events, and all the little thing that contribute to a high quality of life. Visitors to The Trembley Group Blog are encouraged to read the sales executive profiles where they will discover what makes the sales executives special and what the sales executives find special about living on South Carolina’s Grand Strand.

    Culinary Tourism

    Something that every Sales Executive at The Trembley Group agrees is that Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand has great restaurants and is a great place to be a culinary tourist. By definition, a culinary tourist is a traveler who discovers the authentic taste of a particular destination, place, or region and create good memories associated with the local food and drink. Culinary tourists are interested in eating, sampling wine and beer, cooking, baking and learning about the history of certain foods in a particular region. The goal of culinary tourism is to educate and inspire food and wine enthusiasts while giving the tourist a chance to explore the local area and learn about local food trends, cooking techniques, and food history.

    Whether they’ve lived here six months, six years, or an entire lifetime, with more than 1700 mouth-watering options and new ones opening every day, with even a slightly adventuresome palate, it’s possible to always remain a culinary tourist along the Grand Strand.

    Along the Grand Strand, it’s easy to find cuisines ranging from low country cooking and a wealth of caught-fresh-daily seafood to traditional Italian, Greek, Mexican, and American fare. The only difficult part of being a Grand Strand culinary tourist is deciding what to try first.

    Diners in the Myrtle Beach area are in for a treat when it comes to culinary selections. The Grand Strand features cuisine that is pleasing to every palate. Historically, the area is renowned for its fresh local seafood, which is nowhere more abundant than in Murrells Inlet, the seafood capital of South Carolina.

    Toward the northern end of the Grand Strand, North Carolina-style Calabash is the cuisine of choice, with its traditional lightly-breaded, fried seafood meals. There are hundreds of different options to choose from at any number of Calabash buffets.

    On the southern end of the Grand Strand, diners will come into the heart of the Lowcountry, where chefs utilize local ingredients like stone-ground grits, shrimp, blue crab, grouper, country ham, and fresh produce.

    The South Carolina Lowcountry was settled by rice planters and one of the staples in many Lowcountry dishes is the Carolina Gold Rice.  Carolina Gold Rice differs from other varieties of long-grain rice, as it has delicate texture, lack of aroma and superior cooking qualities.

    Fresh to your table, Lowcountry food is an infusion of the cultural influences of the many people that settled on the land in the past. The flavor in these foods includes influences from France, West Africa, and the Caribbean. Whether you’re dining alone, as a couple or with a large group, the Grand Strand has cuisine that’s sure to please everyone!

    Be sure to watch The Trembley Group Sales Executives’ Recommendations and give them a call with any questions – about food or real estate. They like talking about the local cuisine almost as much as local housing opportunities.
