Legends say that the quaint town of Murrels Inlet once upon a time used to be the lair of the infamous pirate Blackbeard. Apart from folklores and ghost stories, the town bears historical significance as one of the oldest coastal communities in South Carolina. Established in 1731, the town was a small but bustling port with international trade ties. Now, you can kayak at the sunrise or go to a chartered fishing excursion from here.
Made with pirate's names and somewhat the themes too, waterfront dining destinations are the ideal examples of beating the known path. Restaurants like Wicked Tuna, Captain Dave's Dockside, Dead Do Saloon are a must-go.
