12 States in 5 Months — A Wrap-up of My 2018 Travels

Here are the highlights of my 2018 travels in chronological order. Every place I stayed also has a Pet-Friendly-Report . I said good-bye to family and friends in Sacramento, CA on June 23 and headed south. I followed route I-40 and Route 66 to visit my son in OKC. Then continued on to tour theContinue reading “12 States in 5 Months — A Wrap-up of My 2018 Travels”

Cary State Forest, Bryceville, FL

This would be a perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy some quality time walking the dogs — if you go when it’s not hunting season. Unfortunately, I was just passing through on a quick trip to get home for the holidays. I checked in at 5:15 pm and left at 8:15Continue reading “Cary State Forest, Bryceville, FL”

Apache Pier Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, SC

I booked one month at this campground for several reasons — price, location, and dog-friendly. There are a few other RV resorts nearby also on the water, but they looked a little “stuffier.” Apache Pier has been here for several generations and looked like fun and where I wouldn’t be hassled about the dogs walkingContinue reading “Apache Pier Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, SC”

Medieval Times Dinner Show, Myrtle Beach, SC

I went to Medieval Times dinner show on October 28 and the castle was decorated for Halloween so that was fun. I’ve never been to Medieval Times before and have been wanting to go for a number of years. They have dinner theaters in 10 locations throughout the U.S. and with one in Canada. AsContinue reading “Medieval Times Dinner Show, Myrtle Beach, SC”

Carolina Opry — Time Warp, Myrtle Beach, SC

I got tickets for a show called “Time Warp” on the last day of performance for the season at the Carolina Opry. What attracted me to this particular show was the description — music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. They lived up to their advertising with a show full of songs that I knewContinue reading “Carolina Opry — Time Warp, Myrtle Beach, SC”

Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet, SC

I had an extra 2 days and someone suggested this park so I booked for a Thursday and Friday night. There are 2 things I would have changed — reserved the north campground instead of the south campground and stayed longer. If you love wildlife, this is definitely the place. However, the south campground isContinue reading “Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet, SC”

Andrew Jackson State Park, Lancaster, South Carolina

I was looking forward to spending a week here because it sounded really interesting and I was not disappointed. The camping area is small and sites are close together but, even so, we really enjoyed being here. There is an indoor/outdoor museum area with several buildings, a statue, and monuments. There is a lake bigContinue reading “Andrew Jackson State Park, Lancaster, South Carolina”

Case Creek Campground, Waxhaw, North Carolina

To be fair to this park, I was only here less than 24 hours and it was during Hurricane Michael so no exploring and few pictures. This does seem like a popular place though for weekenders from Charlotte and surrounding areas. Half of the outside circle is annual sites. There are FHU sites and water/electricContinue reading “Case Creek Campground, Waxhaw, North Carolina”

Statesville/I-77 KOA, Statesville, NC

I just picked a spot on the map and made a reservation but camping here is like camping in a city park. It’s o.k. and clean but you can hear highway traffic night and day, the infrastructure is very dated, and the RVs are sandwiched in like sardines. All spots are pull thru and setContinue reading “Statesville/I-77 KOA, Statesville, NC”

Croft State Park, Spartanburg, SC

If you like camping in the woods and not being too far from town, this is a nice state park with a lot of activity opportunities, including kayaking, biking, and horseback riding. However, I couldn’t get past a few things that dampened my enjoyment of the 4 nights we spent here. I’ll start with theContinue reading “Croft State Park, Spartanburg, SC”
