Dixie Stampede's Final Season - Pirate's Voyage to Open in June 2011

All good things must come to an end and Dixie Stampede is no exception.   Dixie Stampede will kick off its farewell celebration with the popular Christmas Spectacular through December 31, 2010 in Myrtle Beach.  So make plans now to see Dixie Stampede for the last time!  
In June of 2011, Dolly Parton will hoist the Jolly Roger and tilt her sails to the wind, transforming Dixie Stampede into the Pirates' Voyage!

Guests will experience the spirit and swashbuckling excitement of the pirates who called the Carolina coast their home including the likes of Blackbeard and his buccaneers, Captain Kidd and Anne Bonnie.

The Crimson and Sapphire pirates will battle each other on deck, in the water and in the sky above their full sized pirate ships in a 15-foot-deep indoor lagoon to the delight of their fans in the arena. Guests will enjoy a spectacular five course pirate feast. Each side will compete for the ultimate treasure!

"I'm so excited about this new show," Dolly said. "I think Pirates' Voyage will take our guests' breath away! The competition and action between the pirates is incredible."  Spectacular acrobatic competitions, live animals and a brand new original music score by Dolly Parton and Mark Brymer will create an immersive adventure experience.

"Some folks may ask me why I would want to change Dixie Stampede after our incredible success all these years. Nearly seven million guests have enjoyed the show," Dolly said. "It may be a bold move but I think it's the right one. Myrtle Beach has so many repeat visitors because it is such a great vacation destination, it made sense for us to create a new adventure for families to enjoy and what speaks to this area more than Pirates, so grab your hats and eye patches and head on over to the Pirates' Voyage!"

Since tickets will be going fast for Dixie Stampede's final season, please contact us today at  1-800-845-5039 to secure your reservations.  Then join us for Pirate's Voyage next summer!  See you then matey!

Avoid the Summer Traffic - Republished to Help You Arrive Sooner!

Myrtle Beach can be a very busy place, especially during the summer. Even though heavy traffic is hard to avoid, here are some tips to help make getting here a little easier. We understand that after a long drive, the worst way to begin a vacation is to have to wait in stop-and-go traffic.

Tip #1: Here is a locals’ secret. If you are traveling from the North Myrtle Beach area, avoid 17 Business (also known as Kings Highway) by taking SC 31 (also known as Carolina Bays Parkway) which is a freeway that will take you directly to Highway 544 (also known as Dick Pond Road). But please don’t tell the locals I told you about SC 31; they want to keep it as their little secret.

This secret works both ways. If you want to travel from Plantation Resort north to North Myrtle Beach (including Dixie Stampede, Barefoot Landing, Carolina Opry, Alabama Theatre) and beyond and avoid the 17 Business traffic, take Highway 544 to SC 31. Take SC 31 north to SC 22 (also known as Veteran’s Highway). Go East on SC 22 which will take you back to 17 Business. With the heavy summer traffic, this is always the faster way!

Please view and/or click on the image below to get driving directions.
Tip #1 Map:

Tip #2: My most used tip! Highway 544 (Dick Pond Road), particularly on weekends during the summer months, can get so busy that it looks like a parking lot. It is especially troublesome the final mile from 17 Bypass (near Wal-Mart) to where Highway 544 ends into 17 Business (Kings Highway). So as you approach 17 Bypass and you see rows of tail lights, take a right (South) onto 17 Bypass and drive approximately 2.4 miles to Glenns Bay Road. Take a left (East) onto Glenns Bay Road and travel approximately 1.5 miles to 17 Business. Take a left (North) on 17 Business and in about 1.5 miles, you will see the Plantation Resort Front Desk on your left. Be sure to exit onto the Frontage Road just after Mason’s Tire to reach the Front Desk where you check in. You have now driven “around the block” and avoided the worst of the stop-and-go traffic on Highway 544.

Even though this “short cut” adds a few miles onto your trip, it will save you many minutes and get you here faster. I use this secret often, especially on Saturdays.

Please view and/or click on the image below to get driving directions.Tip #2 Map:

Tip #3: Take the Shuttle. Of course everyone loves the beach! Avoid having to find a parking spot and then pay for it by taking the Resort’s shuttle bus to and from the beach. Keep those parking meter coins for ice cream or maybe a smoothie! See your welcome packet for times and locations. But most of all, enjoy your vacation without all the traffic!

Snow in Myrtle Beach!

Last weekend (Feb 13-14th) the weather channel said that snow fell on almost every state in the nation (48 of the 50). Many of us here on the beach were excited to see snow since it is so rare that we see any of the white stuff. When it does fall, it normally melts in the air or upon hitting the ground. Since it is such an event for us, we wanted to share it with you. Our IT Manager took this photo when he was on a walk at the beach with his family. We hope you like it!

p.s. The snow is all gone now! It only lasted a few days. It's been sunny and in the 50's this week with 60's in the forecast for next. So come visit and warm up with us! Hope to see you all soon!

More Resort Improvements - Double Eagle Dr. Paved and Entrance Improved

The next time you visit Plantation Resort, you're bound to notice two big changes.

The first is the improvements made to Fairway Drive. After receiving special permission from the owners of Fairway Drive (Plantation Resort does not own the road), we repaired the roadway by removing an old eroding conduit under the road that was causing road damage and larger and larger sink holes to appear. We also removed the old railroad tie bed just off the traffic circle and fixed the pond bank that was eroding the road base. These areas are all located between the traffic circle and the entrance to the Resort (Double Eagle Drive). We also cut back the railroad tie bed where the Plantation Resort sign is located and poured a concrete curb making it much easier to make the left hand turn onto Double Eagle Drive entering the Resort. After all these repairs were made, we paved the roadway and improved the drainage so that the road will function well for many years to come!
The second improvement you can't miss! A few years ago we paved the beginning of Double Eagle Drive from the entrance to just beyond the entrance to the Health & Swim Club. Now we've now finished the job by paving the rest of Double Eagle Drive all the way to the end to Building 218.
As a bonus, while we were paving Fairway and Double Eagle Drives, several of the parking lots in the Resort were paved at the same time resulting in substantial savings for the HOAs due to the reduction in costs we received by combining all these paving projects into one large project.
These are just a few more of the many improvements we are continually making to improve "your home away from home." We hope you are able to come and enjoy them soon!
