On the Road Again - Myrtle Beach SC - Charlotte NC

April 2014

We left Myrtle Beach after an 11 day stay. It was meant to be 8 days but the weather was not nice the first few days so we extended our stay. As well John connected with an old friend Dave and they spent a couple of days golfing.
The wisteria was in wild bloom everywhere along the highway.

 The GPS took us along scenic highways but not onto the interstate.

Lots and lots of billboards along the way.
These billboards were interesting, click here.

 And churches!! Everywhere!

We crossed into North Carolina and then hit Saturday afternoon suburban weekend traffic around Monroe.

Checked into the Hilton Charlotte City Center and were greeted very graciously.

The tulips are almost finished!

Time to head out and get some lunch.

Right around the corner was the EpiCentre which  is a mixed-use neighborhood located in Uptown Charlotte. It is laid out like streets winding around the space.

We ate at the Blackfinn Ameripub.

Once fortified we walked towards the visitors' centre to see what was around.
Isn't this sign priceless? I will post more of them another time.

For dinner we decided on Asian, Fujo, located within the hotel complex. Delicious, I think, partly because the portions were not overpowering in size. We had fried dumplings, won ton soup and General Tso.

Great city, would definitely come back.


  1. Thanks for sharing!

    Somehow not travelling the interstate highways seems more appealing.

  2. For some reason, all your photos of the highway along the drive have made me homesick, even though I've never been anywhere near Myrtle Beach. I think it's the wisteria and the pictures of pecans along with all the interesting sights you see along an American road. Looks like the day ended well, too. I like that Emily/Bronte sign.

  3. Beautiful wisteria, great signs. Another wonderful area to explore.

  4. Lots of fun photos ~ Scenic route only way to travel ~ Happy Traveling to you ~ xoxo
