Positioned in the heart of a triangular expanse with Charleston, Myrtle Beach, and Columbia at each point, the Andrews Airport serves as the departure site for Skydive Georgetown's freefalling adventures. Experienced skydivers latch themselves and their parachutes to patrons, and, when the soaring aircraft reaches the peak of its trajectory, both plummet into the open atmosphere. Adrenaline junkies hurtle toward the earth at up to 120 miles per hour while staffers commemorate the journey with videos or photos.
With their combined powers of subconscious suggestion, Rich and Elizabeth Wylde captivate their volunteers and delight their audiences during comedic hypnosis shows. At each performance, 12–20 volunteers take a seat onstage, where they are lulled into a peaceful trance. At the Mild show, these participants may find themselves joining the Russian ballet, forgetting their names, or turning into a celebrity. The Fusion show rides the line between mild and wild, while a mild show might involve someone talking to their belly-button. The Wild show presents the most personal situations of all—men might be made to believe that they are giving birth, while women might momentarily think that they are men giving birth.
Purchased by philanthropist Archer Huntington and his wife, Anna Hyatt Huntington, in 1929, the 9,127 acres of forest, swamp, rice fields and beachfront that became Brookgreen Gardens were originally intended to become the couple’s winter home. Instead, they created a nonprofit institution in 1931 that transformed the property into the first sculpture garden in the United States. Brookgreen Gardens now adorns more than 300 acres of gardens and facilities with more than 1,400 works. A National Historic Landmark, Brookgreen Gardens fields a staff that edifies guests on the property’s plantation history and its gardens’ evolution during seasonally shifting programs, exhibitions, and tours. A medieval, seven-circuit Chartres labyrinth lures visitors with its serene quietude, an exhibit chronicles the narrative of the land from Native American occupation through the present, archeological sites unearth information about life on rice plantations, and the museum’s zoo beckons the intellectually curious with its critters.
Vacation is a time to relax, and for some people, that means not showering for days. For others, it means lots and lots of golf. As a complement to getaways at Myrtle Beach, Glen Davis Golf Schools helps golfers get their fix—and shave down their scores in the process. A golf guru who racked up 15 wins during his pro career, Glen Davis has been teaching others for more than 30 years and was nominated as one of the top 100 golf instructors by Golf Digest in 2007, and as 'Best Golf Instructor' in the reader's choice awards 2013 by the Myrtle Beach Herald. At his school, Glen and his staff provide individualized instruction during one-, two-, and three-day programs as well as during private sessions. Rather than having a sketch artist create a flipbook of every student's swing, Glen and his staff reinforce their observations with video analysis. They also send students home with personalized drills for continued practice.
