This week’s Friday Finds sees your heroes reunited, and it feels so good!
After experiencing a once in a lifetime month-long mission trip to Thailand, Alison returns to experience a Myrtle Beach Institution of culinary delight!
Built when FDR was still in office, Peaches Corner is one of the most visited and recognizable landmarks on the Grand Strand. Built in 1937, Peaches has delighted both vacationers and locals for over 80 years!
Located in the heart of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk on Ocean Blvd, Peaches features some of the absolute best hot dogs, burgers, and other sandwiches in the area. Whether you are a first-time visitor or a seasoned veteran traveler to Myrtle Beach, you owe it to yourself to try one of their historically excellent “baskets” with fries or some of the most delicious (and LARGE!) onion rings around. You won’t be disappointed.
Peaches gets its name from the Peach Family who opened the restaurant in 1937 and operated it for over a decade. Back then, hot dogs sold for only 15 cents and you could get 2 for a quarter! Beer was only 10 cents! Prices are still excellent, and you get a ton of great food for a great price.
One of my earliest Myrtle Beach memories is sitting outside Peaches and at their famous counter, watching all the fun and activity of excited tourists relaxing and having fun and nothing has changed. Sitting there today, feeling that refreshing ocean breeze, while watching the hustle and bustle of folks having a big time made me feel like I did when I was a little tyke. Now, I want to head down to the Gay Dolphin and look at Shark Teeth or stand outside The Bowery and listen to those sweet sounds! It’s a great place to unwind while taking in all that downtown Myrtle has to offer. Check it out.
