Secret Atom Bomb Dropped in Florence, SC

Posted by SCBeachTrips.com on Sunday, December 7, 2014,
One of the few fortunate things that I was able to see for myself is the site where the bomb was dropped by the air force. Not a lot of people know about it because there was an article that said that they wanted to keep it a secret. Although the site is somewhat preserved for its history, there is a chance in the future that that site could be replaced with housing. Here are the pictures I took of the site and the bulletin board that someone put there about the history.

Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration on Jan. 16, 2014 at Francis Marion University

Posted by SCBeachTrips.com on Friday, January 17, 2014,
We had an unexpected theme this week at our home. A few days ago my husband and I watched the movie The Butler and felt really moved by the courage of a few who stood up for the millions in order to get equality. One of those figures in the movie is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A couple of days letter, I received a flyer in the mail about a public celebration for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the local university and I felt that I must attend.
 
It was held at the Chapman Auditorium inside of Fra...

Free things for Veteran's Day if you're in the military or a veteran

Posted by SCBeachtrips.com on Monday, November 11, 2013, In : Free Things to do 
Happy Veteran's Day!

My husband is a Navy veteran and today is Veteran's Day. We discovered quickly upon moving to South Carolina that residents here really appreciate a military man and any veteran who has served the country. We really appreciate the freebies he gets on Veteran's Day. We know of several businesses/franchises around the US that routinely offer freebies every year so here is a list that we know of. 

Free on Veteran's Day ONLY


1. Great Clips - They give free haircuts to all milita...

Every time I come back to Thai House 2, the food gets better (Florence, SC)

Posted by SCbeachtrips.com on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, In : Food 

My husband and I went to Thai House 2 located on Dargan St. for lunch and I feel that the food in the day time is fresher than the last time we were there for dinner. 

The great thing about coming for lunch is that a complimentary salad is included with your meal. The salad is small but it's nice to have something to munch on while you're waiting for your entree. It's also pretty fresh. 

My husband ordered the mango duck that came that was under the lunch special and I ordered the Thai House N...

SIMT building on the Florence Darlington Technical College Campus

Posted by SCbeachtrips.com on Thursday, July 18, 2013, In : College 

If you've never driven towards the end of the Florence Darlington Technical College's campus where the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology (SIMT) is, you'll never know how truly big the campus is. SIMT is a beautiful building with more fountains to see. It was a cloudy day when I took this picture but imagine it on a beautiful day!

Being a lady in the South has its benefits

Posted by SCbeachtrips.com on Thursday, May 30, 2013,
I've lived in South Carolina for 5 months now and every one is so nice and polite here. There are so many things I love about living here.

People either call me ma'am, miss or dear. When I was in California, I was always puzzled when someone calls me miss or ma'am but now I get it. Those people were probably from the South! I love it.

Myrtle Beach - There is so much to do!

Posted by SCBeachtrips.com on Friday, April 5, 2013, In : Myrtle Beach 
We went on a day trip to Myrtle Beach since it was only an hour away from where we live and it's unbelievable big! The boardwalk has a lot of shops, rides, walking areas and a nearby entertainment center called Broadway on the Beach (about a mile from the boardwalk).

The only thing that I wasn't prepared for is the traffic. The streets are narrow and there are sometimes only one lane for each direction so you can imagine the congestion. There are a lot of hotels in the area too. See this sect...

Disappointed with Little China Restaurant in Florence, SC

Posted by SCBeachTrips.com on Thursday, March 28, 2013,
Usually it takes at least 3 strikes for me to give a restaurant a bad review. This was our first time trying their Chinese food and what got us to drive to 2nd Loop for this is because we saw online that they have a very inexpensive lunch menu. 

First strike took place when they gave me the wrong thing. Soup or egg roll comes as a choice for your lunch entree as it said on the menu. I told the guy who took my order for egg drop soup but he gave me an egg roll instead. Maybe he heard me wrong b...

Southern Hospitality in Florence, SC

Posted by SCbeachtrips.com on Tuesday, March 26, 2013,
I've noticed that for every week in the last month, I've made a trip to the local post office. I like knowing that my mail has reached the post office because it saves the mailman a step and do enjoy my trips here.

Today, there was a line to get to the desk for help at the South Florence post office. When it was my turn, a lady behind me tapped me on the shoulder and said I dropped some money and handed $2 to me. I was taken my surprise and I'm glad she was so honest about it. She could've wai...

Applying to College - Florence-Darlington Technical College Experience

Posted by SCBeachTrips.com on Monday, March 18, 2013,
As I am going through another life crisis, I've decided to go back to school to learn another trade. I know I want to get into the medical field and it's just a matter of timing and getting my ducks in a row.

At first, I wanted to apply for the Sleep Technician program from Florence-Darlington Technical College but after 10 email exchanges between their office and me, they finally told me that they've cancelled the program due to lack of attendance. Hey, things do happen unexpectedly so I had...
