Not on Ticket to Ride but still fabulous

So the destination for my bachelorette ended up not being anywhere on the Ticket to Ride board.  My friends took me to (drum roll please) Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! It was amazing and I feel so lucky to have such great friends!  I will update more on it soon.
