There is nothing more I want in the world right now (well other than my college football team to go undefeated and to somehow come up with enough money I don’t have to stress and only have to work for fun), than to be sitting at a swim-up bar somewhere drinking a frozen cocktail. I’d start off with a Miami Vice because it’s the best of both worlds with strawberry and coconut. And then switch over to something with tequila. This isn’t a want, it’s a need. And honestly, when I think of a swim up bar I think of somewhere in the Caribbean. Which is goals. But that’s expensive and a time investment I can’t afford right now. So I started to wonder where the closest swim up bar is. And turns out there are two South Carolina resorts that have swim up bars.
I’ll be honest I’m not usually clamouring to visit Myrtle Beach. It’s fine, but somewhere I’ve been numerous times in my life thanks to dance competitions, family vacations, music festivals, and friends having vacations homes there. And listen, when it’s a free place to stay I’m all about it. But needless to say I’m not often looking for hotels in what is often known as the “dirty Myrtle”. But that means I’ve been overlooking two fantastic resorts with that swim up bar lifestyle I’m so desperately craving. There are also several other hotels in the US that have swim up bars as well. Surprisingly my research didn’t lead me to Florida. Though I’m sure a deep dive might turn up at least one in the sunshine state. If not anyone want to be the investor that helps make that happen? I’ll do the marketing!
Below you’ll find info on the two South Carolina resorts with those oh so coveted swim up bars. You’ll also see some of the other tempting swim up bars around the country that are now on my bucket list to visit. And some are in some unexpected locations for sure. All look like incredible resorts I’d be grateful to experience at some point in my lifetime. Any physic want to float me some lottery numbers? I’ll get you a room too!
