9-11 Memorial - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Twin Towers Memorial - Broadway at the Beach

One of the highlights of visiting Myrtle Beach is a trip to Broadway at the Beach, a shopping - eating -boardwalk type experience surrounding a large lake. We haven´t visited in about nine years. It was good to be back. My family enjoyed the shops. At 10 p.m. we were among several thousand tourist crowding the boardwalk to watch the spectacular and colorful fireworks show. Be sure to check the local schedule as this happens one night each week. While the family enjoyed the shops I enjoyed some night time geocaching. Most of the caches around Broadway at the Beach were located in the parking lot or just off the grounds. I particularly like We Will Never Forget (GC340RZ), a memorial to those who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001. The memorial is a small version of the Twin Towers. At the particular time we were visiting the flags were at half mast in mourning for those who were killed in the senseless shooting in the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Be sure and check out the caches in this area if you get the chance to visit.
