Did you know sharks have several rows of teeth in each jaw, and that their teeth tend to fall out pretty easily? It’s true! Sharks are constantly losing and regenerating teeth by the thousands, and those little (and sometimes big) treasures will end up washing ashore on the beach at some point.

If you happen to find a tooth with a white crown and root, chances are it’s not that old. But if you happen to find a tooth that is darkly colored, you have found an actual fossil! Most of the shark teeth found on the Carolina coast are fossilized, and some belong to extinct species that date back millions of years. In fact, several giant Megalodon shark teeth have been found along the Grand Strand in the past several years — as well as a Mastodon tooth this past summer! That’s quite a vacation souvenir.

Here are some fun tips for finding shark teeth on the Grand Strand:

 

  • Not sure when to begin your search? The best time to find shark teeth is when the tide is rolling in. Low tide is another good time to search.

 

  • Not sure where to look? Stick to the shell beds along the coastline, where the water pushes ashore and then recedes, leaving behind a bounty of treasure.

 

  • Not having much luck on the sand? Each wave has the potential of bringing in new teeth, so try your luck spotting some in shallow water.

 

  • Not sure what to look for? When combing the beach for shark teeth, look for pieces that are triangular, very shiny, and black.

 

  • Not sure if what you found is a shark tooth? Wet shell bits are shiny and can fit the above description. Shark teeth will also have a gum line at the base and ridges along the edge that come to a sharp point.

You’ll have to sift through lots of shell bits to find what you seek, so be patient and look carefully! You can purchase tools online to help with your search, or construct a simple fossil sifter to bring on your trip. Click here for instructions from Popular Science.

Some foods are just quintessentially southern. If you’ve never tried a pimento cheese and fried green tomato BLT, collard greens, or sweet tea — to name a few — you are surely missing out! Here are just a few signature southern foods and where to find them on your next Grand Strand vacation!

  1. Boiled Peanuts

Historically, this southern delicacy was often found at late summer social gatherings, when the final peanut crops were boiled for hours in heavily salted water for preservation. With a soft texture similar to beans and easy to peel shells, you can now find boiled peanuts sold by the bag at roadside rest stops along your trip.

  1. Collards

Often paired with Carolina BBQ, collards are a staple of good old-fashioned southern cooking. Cooked low and slow, these tasty greens are made even better with the addition on smoky ham, sweet onions, apple cider vinegar, and a touch of sugar. You’ll find this side dish on any respectable Grand Strand menu, but Simply Southern Smokehouse took the top spot for collards on a recent Foursquare list.

  1. Fried Fish

South Carolina is known for fresh seafood, especially served up Calabash style. We’re talking local flounder, catfish, shrimp, crab, and oysters fried to perfection with a side of coleslaw and a basket of hushpuppies. You’ll find a number of great seafood restaurants up and down the Grand Strand Coast, from Little River down to Murrells Inlet.

  1. Pimento Cheese

A picnic classic, creamy Pimento Cheese is a true southern cuisine favorite. Made with cheese, pimentos, Duke’s Mayo (another southern staple), and a touch of heat, this spread is the ultimate appetizer. It’s even better when used in a grilled cheese sandwich, like this Ultimate BLT from the Boathouse in Myrtle Beach, paired with fried green tomatoes.

  1. Shrimp and Grits

As porridge made from coarsely ground corn meal, grits are often served with butter and sugar at breakfast time. Grits are also served as a savory dish on southern tables. No two restaurants make Shrimp and Grits exactly the same. Some add smoked sausage or bacon, others add hot sauce, but all include South Carolina shrimp. The Shack in North Myrtle Beach makes a great dish at a reasonable price, or you can make your own with this recipe from Southern Living.

  1. Sweet Tea

In South Carolina, we like our tea sweet! You may find unsweetened tea on the menu, but for a true southern experience, order up an ice-cold glass of sweet tea. No doubt you’ll find it at every Grand Strand restaurant, from the casual boardwalk eatery to the fancy oceanfront establishment. You’ll thank us later.

For more signature southern foods and where to find them, check out Food Network’s list of “What to Eat in South Carolina.”  And for a great place to stay on the Grand Strand, contact Vacation Rentals of North Myrtle Beach and ask about our fall specials.

Contrary to popular belief, a good bagel can be found in the south! If you’re craving an “everything with cream cheese” or “sesame with ham, egg and Provolone” during your Grand Strand vacation, look no further than these local establishments. All are serving up fresh bagels to satisfy your hunger, so grab a dozen, and hit the beach with the best bagels on the Grand Strand.

The Bagel Factory

The Bagel Factory has been making some of the best bagels in Myrtle Beach for over 10 years. On any given day, there are 17 different bagels to choose from, and 10 different spreads. Crusty brown on the outside, and chewy on the inside, these bagels are the real deal — yes, they boil their bagels before baking! The Bagel Factory serves breakfast and lunch daily at several area locations, including one on Main Street in North Myrtle Beach, three in Myrtle Beach, and one in Murrells Inlet. Visit their website for details and to view their menu.

Krave Bagel Bistro

Krave Bagel Bistro is located on Highway 17 S. in North Myrtle Beach and offers up a true Northern style experience. Each bagel is hand rolled, boiled and then baked to perfection. Krave has 12 different bagels on the menu, as well as homemade bread, rolls and croissants. Try one of their gourmet deli sandwiches or freshly prepared tuna salad on a warm bagel. Not a fan of tuna? Krave has homemade chicken and egg salad, too! Other delicious options include Lox and a variety of unique cream cheese spreads. Click here to see their complete menu. Krave also has a drive up window and patio seating.

Bagel Port Café and Deli

This cozy Myrtle Beach breakfast and lunch spot makes their bagels fresh daily. Located at the Galleria Plaza on the corner of Highway 17 N. and Lake Arrowhead Road, Bagel Port Café and Deli has a good selection, from plain to everything — but the salt bagel is by far the most popular with locals and visitors alike. If you’re a bagel snob, you may find the texture is more on the soft side, but never fear. The breakfast sandwiches are tasty and the cream cheese is thick and abundant. Click here to view the menu.

Of course, these are just a sampling of the delicious bagels that can be found up and down the Grand Strand. Other stops include Bagel Doc near Little River, Jersey Bagels and Subs in Conway, Big Apple Bagels and Benjamin’s Bakery in Surfside Beach, and several more in the surrounding areas.

While those on the list are mostly mom and pop shops owned by northern transplants living on the Grand Strand, you also can’t go wrong with a quick stop at Panera Bread or Dunkin Donuts on your way the beach.

Travel and Leisure recently reported on a study from The Journal of Nutrition, Health and Aging that proves taking a vacation now and then is just as important for your health as eating right and getting enough exercise. In fact, it may even help you (and your loved ones) live longer! We’ve already told you that taking a trip with your girlfriends is also good for your health, and the most important girl in your life is undoubtedly your mom. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, why not plan a vacation on the Grand Strand with the woman who brought you into the world? After all, it’s a scientific fact that quality time together is good for both of you!

Here are a few more reasons to take a trip with your mother.

You will be making memories.

Remember when you were a kid, and you made your mom a macaroni necklace on her special day? She was so touched; she made you believe she cherished that gift almost as much as she cherished you. While it was incredibly thoughtful at the time, you’re all grown up now, and probably don’t get to see your mom as often as you did way back when. Instead of buying or making her a DIY gift this year, it’s time to make some special memories for her to cherish — just the two of you. While a crocheted scarf or wooden trivet is lovely, we guarantee you that spending time with you is at the top of her wish list!

You will get to know her better.

Now that you are both older, your relationship has surely evolved. Taking a vacation with your mother gives you a rare opportunity to really get to know the amazing woman she is. And it will allow her to see the incredible person you have become, thanks to her. With uninterrupted time together, you will be able to catch up away from distractions and your busy schedules. You will learn things about her life and the history of your family. You will have once-in-a-lifetime conversations that will stay with your forever. And you may just find you have a lot more in common with your mom than you thought.

You will have fun!

Vacations let you unwind, relax, and have fun. Imaging going on a helicopter adventure with your mom, or learning to shag dance at Fat Harold’s Beach Club. Take a surfing lesson, snap some photos with your favorite celebrities at the Hollywood Wax Museum, shop ‘til you drop at Barefoot Landing, or simply go for an evening stroll on the beach in search of seashells. Think of the things you’ll cross of your bucket lists! The Grand Strand really is the perfect destination for a family vacation.
