Before you know it, summer vacations will be happening. Granted, there’s plenty to do at the beach. But, with a new Myrtle Beach entertainment venue opening soon, the fun is growing. According to WBTW, Stars and Strikes plans to open in February at Coastal Grand Mall. With the opening, the Georgia based company brings more than 100 jobs to the area. Stars and Strikes has two other locations in South Carolina with venues in Irmo and Summerville. It takes over the mall space that once was Dick’s Sporting Goods. The entertainment venue features a laser tag arena, robots to deliver food to tables, and more than 100 games with 150 player stations Also, guests can enjoy axe throwing and bowling. And, for anyone looking for employment, the company will be on site at upcoming job fairs at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center ahead of opening. Open positions include axe attendants, bartenders, bowling attendants, hostesses and kitchen workers. A company partner says they seek people with a good work ethic and personality. And of course, feel free to visit Stars and Strikes in Concord, North Carolina if you haven’t already. Experience arcade games, virtual reality activities, bumper cars and more.
The idea of Stars and Strikes came to longtime friends and neighbors Jack Canouse and Chris Albano in 2003. They saw the need for a family friendly place where visitors of all ages could enjoy safe fun. They imagined a large space with fun activities, great food, friendly interactive staff and a fully stocked bar. After a bit of planning, they opened the first location in Cumming, Georgia in 2005. And soon, plenty more followed. So, make sure to include a visit to this new Myrtle Beach entertainment venue on your next beach visit.
These Are The 25 Best North Carolina Attractions
Looking for a fun time for yourself or your family, but don’t want to travel too far from home? I get it the airports can be crazy this time of year! Luckily there is plenty of fun to be had in our own backyard. One of the many things that make North Carolina so special is that we have both the mountains and the ocean in the same state. Something I know I personally take for granted! That gives such a variety of things to do either on a weekend getaway or a quick day trip. You can easily leave in the morning from Charlotte, spend the day in the mountains, and be home to sleep in your own bed. There are also plenty of things to do here in Queen City and the other metro areas of the state. But what are the best North Carolina attractions?
Well, AttractionsOfAmerica.com ranked the top 25 North Carolina attractions. And while I could agree with the top 25 in general, the order has me scratching my head a little. Mainly with where Carowinds came in, as well as the high rankings of several state parks. But even if you don’t agree with the rankings, it’s still a good cohesive list of things to do in the state of North Carolina! Here’s the top 25:
