2022: Set Those New Year’s Resolutions Now

Year-end is a great time to assess how this year has gone — and how you can make next year even better.

It’s a standard, but it’s New Year’s resolution time. Instead of the standard “lose weight” and “get healthy,” list, delve into what would stir your soul.

Many of us yearn for a bit of adventure. That could be taking a solo trip. Or try our hand at something like a deep-sea venture with Myrtle Beach Sport Fishing. Luckily, Myrtle Beach is the backdrop for many meaningful ideas to change up your life.

Why are resolutions important?

Winter doldrums can extinguish the spark of that new gym membership. Or even commitment to drinking more water. The key is to find something you can be excited about, something specific to key your efforts. Here are some suggestions for making this the most personal resolutions list ever.

Plan a trip

First things first: Put something on the calendar. Travel is looking up, and you might have travel rewards you’ve been unable to use. Check memberships for discounts and read online reviews.

What kind of travel would be best for you? Something restorative, with a visit to Majestic Massage & Day Spa?  Oceanside dining at Riptidz Oceanfront Grill & Rooftop Bar? Thrill-seeking, with rides with Helicopter Adventures and banana boats with Ocean Waves? Maybe you’d like to escape with a special someone or the family to set the tone for a beautiful year.

Travel more

Why stop with one Grand Strand getaway? If having an early trip planned boosted morale, imagine more than one date on your calendar. With a bit of planning, use more of your PTO this year and return to the Grand Strand again and again. 

Consider:

A spring jaunt: When life comes to full bloom, it’s a beautiful time to be in Myrtle Beach. Get in on the fun before summer travel ramps up. You’ll likely find travel deals, smaller crowds, and more opportunities for fun.

Get on track with your family at Broadway Grand Prix Family Race Park. Come face to face with amazing animals at Alligator Adventure. If you’re coming from a cold-weather state, it’s probably warm enough in spring to get out on a water adventure. Try Action Watersportz for personal watercraft rentals, dolphin watch tours, and more. Or just get out and enjoy seasonable days and nights on the beach.

A summer stayover: This is prime time for Grand Strand travel. The beach is brimming with fun, with tons of memories to be found. The weather is hot and steamy, with lots of fun in the sun on the wide-open shores. Golf and mini-golf are kings in this town, and there’s a tee time or a fairway dragon to slay on so many courses.

Catch a Myrtle Beach Pelicans game and see the Chicago Cubs’ stars of tomorrow. Beat the heat with a match of laser tag at Fun Warehouse. Bring your camera for the most incredible views of the Grand Strand with a trip on SkyWheel Myrtle Beach.

Visit again in the fall: The summer sun gives way to some of the most incredible conditions. Things begin to slow down. It’s still great for outdoor activities. Make a visit to Huntington Beach State Park or Myrtle Beach State Park. It’s also a wonderful time to spend a day on a beach blanket with a picnic and beautiful fall sky.

Take a fly-fishing adventure with Myrtle Beach Guide Service. Enjoy al fresco dining at 42nd Street Bar & Grill. Indulge in a chilled seafood platter at Gulfstream Cafe. Dine Aussie-style in the upscale yet family-friendly Greg Norman Australian Grille. The Grand Strand is famous for fabulous fall festivals, too.  

Opt for adventure

Get lost more often, at home, or on your trip to Myrtle Beach. You never know what a stray venture down an unknown street will lead you. Try new things.

Every time you visit the Grand Strand, pick one thing you’ve never done. Radical Ropes Adventure Park is a great place to expand your horizons. Visit Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, or climb aboard Blackbeard’s Pirate Cruise. The adventure can be great or small. The point is: Take a chance!
