We’ve been shopping around and looking for a Myrtle Beach used ATV for sale for our son. He’s been after us for two years now and we decided he’s old enough and responsible enough to have one. Heck, if we wait much longer he’s going to be able to just go out and buy it himself!

Myrtle Beach used ATV for saleAt the Marine Service Center in Little River, SC, we found the perfect Myrtle Beach used ATV for sale for him but then decided to kick it up a notch and buy a brand new one. I know he’ll like the one we chose because it’s one of the pictures he has hanging on his bedroom wall. I think this will probably be one of his best holidays ever.

Adding the “Wham!” factor to his gift was a good idea. The ATV we bought is a 2013 Polaris Ranger 400. It is an incredible mid-size ATV at a great value. Its unmatched ride and 40 mph (64.4 kph) top speed make it perfect for recreational riding. Key features include a 29 HP, 455cc Engine, smooth independent rear suspension (IRS), rear cargo box capacity and mid-sized design. This beauty fits into the back of our full-size pickup and weighs just 500 lb. It will go up our ramp perfectly once we gift wrap it. He’s going to just love this!

So you’re looking for something really fun and different to do on your vacation to Myrtle Beach this year? How about taking the family out on a Myrtle Beach charter fishing trip and teach the youngsters how to fish in salt water. A half a day on a Myrtle Beach charter fishing voyage and they’ll be experts and you’ll have given them priceless memories that, believe me, they will never forget.

Myrtle Beach charter fishingChildren are good for up to 4 hours out on a charter fishing trip then they tend to get a little restless. Even less time if the fish aren’t being cooperative, I’m afraid to say. My personal opinion is that the energy backs up in them and they need to be able to run around in circles. This is not something they can do on a fishing charter boat.

Pack snacks and lunch when you go and don’t bring anything that has sugar or caffeine in it. I found out the hard way with our own children when it triggered an energy spasm and they wanted to jump in the water and swim back to shore. This was not one of our more favorable vacations I can assure you.

There’s nothing saying you have to stay out the entire 4 hours either but you’d better hope there’s nobody but your family and the captain on the fishing charter or they’re not going to be very happy about returning to shore early.
