Holden Beach Memories
Have you seen this mailbox before? If you are a regular to Holden Beach, the answer maybe yes (if you know where to look). It is actually located ON the beach. If you take a stroll to the far east end of Holden Beach, keep walking as the ocean meets the ICW, and look up into the dunes, you'll see it.
This mailbox is just what it says "Golden Memories". Open the door and inside is a notebook and pen. Vacationers and locals alike share their memories and experiences of Holden Beach. Anyone is welcome to leave a memory or sometimes the local fishing report. All that is asked is to leave the notebook and pen for the next person.
It's amazing the stories you will find inside this mailbox. Memories of years gone by, love stories, children's first trips to the beach, and stories of locals who call the beach "home".
Next time you are in Holden Beach, be sure to check out this unique memory mailbox and be sure to only leave your footprints and memories.
