ROAD TRIP: Myrtle Beach Getaway (Jul. 31 - Aug. 8th)!!!!!

1210 N Ocean Blvd

Yes, you read this meetup page right! The meetup group is doing a road trip to Myrtle Beach, SC starting Sat., Jul. 31st and will spend a whole week there. We will be linked up with DMV Socialites to do this spontaneous getaway trip.

This road trip will include a variety of activities from walking the boardwalk, laying on the beach, dining at seafood restaurants, pool party, game night, nightlife, etc. There is also an amusement park, aquarium, and alligator reserve that we will be checking out.

Even though this meetup event is posted as a nine day event, the organizers are not expecting everyone to be in Mrytle Beach for the entire nine days. A few will get there on Jul. 31st and a few will leave as late as Aug. 8th.

Book your flight and hotel stay accordingly to the dates you can be there between Jul. 31-Aug. 8th. The host hotel will be the Best Western Plus Mrytle Beach at Intracoastal, located on 9551 N Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach, SC.

Labor Day Weekend in Ocean City!!!

45th Street Taphouse Bar & Grille

*Co-hosted by The DMV Socialites Meetup group and Northeast Urbanites Connections on Facebook.

Me and about 10 other people from The DMV Socialites Meetup group will arrive to OC (Ocean City, MD) the morning of Sat., Sept. 4th and leave on Labor Day (Sept. 6th) at around 11ish. One friend and I will be staying at a hotel in OC that's just a one-minute walk to the beach & boardwalk :-)

*We agreed that the holiday weekend would be REALLY fun if we invited members from Meetup groups to join us!

Whether you're a first time visitor or seasoned vacationer to OC, there's always plenty to do "in the OC!" If you plan to spend at least one night in or near OC for the holiday weekend, don't wait until the last minute to book! Many properties are already sold out or overpriced for the holiday weekend. For affordable options go to hotels.com.

After doing some research on OC, I put together a tentative schedule of activities* that all Meetup members and guests can join us for :-)

*Some activities require Meetup members to RSVP in advance if they want to attend - specifically, restaurant outings. The schedule below is tentative, but I wanted to create a schedule so that we have something to work with.

Please see the tentative schedule below for OC.

Saturday, September 4th

(1) 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm: Lunch at 45th Street Taphouse Bar & Grill (for more info visit https://octaphouses.com/locations/45th-street).
*Up to 16 people may RSVP for lunch; up to 8 people per table.

(2) 3:30 - 7:00: Beach & Pool Party!!! Since Taphouse restaurant is located near my hotel and the beach, we will drive/carpool/rideshare to the strip of the Ocean City beach and boardwalk near the hotel. The hotel is a 12-minute drive from Taphouse. There is free parking at and around the hotel. From 3:30 - 7:00 we will spend time on the beach & at the large outdoor pool and bar at my hotel. The hotel and pool are right on the beach :-) We may also sightsee along the boardwalk. The hotel name and address will be shared closer to the trip.

(3) 8:00 pm - 2:00 am: "Party Under the Palms" at Macky's! We will go to Macky's Bayside Bar & Grille on 54th Street for dinner, drinks, music, and dancing at the large, lively bayside party spot that is a very popular restaurant, bar, and nightclub. A DJ will be spinning on the 1's and 2's from 10:00 pm 'til 2 am! For more info about Macky's visit https://mackys.com/.
*Up to 16 people may RSVP for dinner; up to 8 people per table.

We can swim in Assateague's beaches, take photos of the wild horses that the Island is famous for, go hiking, biking, horseback riding by the ocean, grill food, rent kayaks or canoes, fish, and/or crab! (Note: these are some of the many activities available at Assateague. No attendee is expected nor obligated to do these activities - choose the activities you like!) There is a fee per vehicle to enter the park, and the entry pass is good for 7 days. For more info about Assateague visit https://www.nps.gov/asis/index.htm.
