The Carolina Opry
If New York's Broadway and Nashville's Grand Ole Opry had a baby, it would be the Carolina Opry in Myrtle Beach.
Featuring the best live entertainment on the Grand Strand, the Carolina Opry is known for attracting world-class talent and award-winning shows. The state-of-the-art, 2,200-seat Calvin Gilmore Theater provides an intimate setting for outstanding music, dancing and entertainment with top-quality sound, stage and lighting.
Four highly acclaimed shows await you and your group, including the self-title "Carolina Opry." This two-hour musical, dance, and comedy showcase features traditional American song-and-dance numbers by some of the top artists in the business. This show has been running for 28 straight years with periodic updates and it keeps people coming back for more.
"Good Vibrations" takes audiences on a high-energy musical tour of the 1960's, '70's and '80's, featuring the greatest hits from the early days of rock-n-roll through the Summer of Love and from disco through the age of New Wave. Uncanny covers of timeless hits will have the younger crowd dancing in the aisles and the older set taking a stroll down musical memory lane.
"LIGHT Laser Extravaganza" is the latest addition to the Carolina Opry lineup and has quickly become a smash. Featuring high-tech special effects and a lean toward an edgier style of music from classic-rock acts like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and U2, LIGHT lights up the theater and the crowd with a multi-colored, mind-blowing performance.
And last on the calendar but certainly not in popularity, the "Carolina Opry Christmas Special" is a must-see for those on the Grand Strand in November and December. Nicknamed "The Christmas Story of the South," this holiday showcase sets the stage for an ideal country Christmas with singing, dancing, comedy and a reflection on the reason for the season.

Divine Fish House
For a truly divine seafood dining experience, check out Divine Fish House on the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk.
Located on the waterfront of famed Murrells Inlet, the Seafood Capital of South Carolina, Divine Fish House features an extensive menu and an elegant setting for a romantic dinner or a fun night out with friends.
Their motto "Dining for all your senses" becomes evident once you walk inside the door. Tall glass windows over an excellent view of the fishing boats returning from a day at sea with fresh catches destined for the Divine Fish House kitchen. The aroma of fresh ingredients simmering and sauteing waft from the kitchen to your nose.
The sound of soft music over the gentle waves and wake of the inlet, the touch of class in the candle-lit dining room surrounded by glass and, finally, the taste of some of the best seafood on the Grand Strand. Of all the wonderful sensations you will experience at Divine Fish House, none beats the flavors coming to your taste buds.
Offering excellent sushi and seafood appetizers, Divine Fish House puts an upscale twist everything under the sea. Old standards like crab cakes and seared tuna are jazzed up with a sweet pepper jam and pineapple wasabi, while non-traditional choices such as the crab mango tuna stack and Oysters Divine are unique and mouth-watering.
The She-Crab Soup and Spinach Blackberry Salad all lead up to a main course that takes seafood to a new level.
The famous Inlet Platters give guest the choice between fried shrimp, oysters, flounder and more, and the fresh catch of the day is served a variety of ways - grilled, baked, blackened and topped with one of many tasty sauces.
But it's hard to beat the Surf and Turf, and Divine Fish House does it up right with cold-water lobster tail and prime steaks and chops. Wash it all down with a fine wine, or enjoy an after-dinner cocktail on the patio deck and bar, where live music, a wonderful sunset and an excellent view serve as compliments to a great dinner.
Divine Fish House is located at 3993 Highway 17 Business in Murrells Inlet. For more information, call 843-651-5800 or visit the website at www.divinefishhouse.com.
