Myrtle Beach

An Island Paradise

There aren’t a lot of places as famous for being the ideal spot for a vacation as the one you will be enjoying convenience to from your accommodations at the hotels in Myrtle Beach, SC. Stretched along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, it provides miles of beautiful beaches, unforgettable local dining, shopping like you’ve never experienced, and a variety of attractions that will have something for everyone.  In fact, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that you’ll find just about everything anyone goes on vacation for within its boundaries.

With an Interesting Past

Though you probably already know that the hotels in Myrtle Beach, SC are on an island, what you may not know is that it wasn’t always separated from the mainland. In fact, it wasn’t officially an island until 1936 when the Intercoastal Waterway was built to allow water travel along the coast. And considering its popularity as a tourist destination today, you might also be surprised to find it remained largely uninhabited until the workers of the Conway and Seashore Railroad began to visit the beaches on their time off at the turn of the 20th century.  As soon as they did, however, it was immediately apparent that Myrtle Beach was the perfect place to give travelers like you a wonderful vacation.

Where There’s Never a Dull Moment

You may be planning your trip just to take advantage of the gorgeous sandy beaches, but if you didn’t take the time to learn what other incredible activities and sights are available on the island, you would be doing yourself an enormous disservice. The hotels in Myrtle Beach, SC will, of course, get you right up close to the ocean, with many built right on its shore, but they will also provide convenience to locations like the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, named the third best in the country, the Family Kingdom Amusement Park, the Carolina Opry, Medieval Times, the Hollywood Wax Museum, the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, Broadway at the Beach, home to Ripley’s Aquarium, the NASCAR Speed Park, and Legends in Concert.

And Shopping and Dining is Out of This World

Where many cities and vacation destinations may throw their shopping centers and restaurants in with the other attractions as a kind of supplement, Myrtle Beach takes both very seriously. With famous places to eat and drink like Jimmy Buffet’s Margitaville, Hard Rock Cafe, Planet Hollywood, Greg Norman’s Australian Grill, the House of Blues and the Giant Crab Seafood Restaurant, you may have to make a trip just to visit them all. Incredibly, the shopping is even better at spots like the Coastal Grand Mall, the Tanger Outlets, Barefoot Landing, and the Market Common. Shop til you drop indeed.

Get in a Round or Two of Golf

Did you know that the hotels in Myrtle Beach, SC will get your access to more than 100 different golf courses? It’s no wonder the area has been nicknamed the Golf Capital of the World. Though it would take far too much time and space to name them all, some of the more notable ones are Caledonia, Dunes Golf and Beach Club, Barefoot Resort, Tidewater Golf Club, True Blue, and TPC Myrtle Beach. And in case you simply have no interest in getting a tee time, the Grand Strand is also home to a baseball team, a pro soccer team, and NASCAR races, so your love of sports is fully covered.

And Make Sure to Check Your Calendar

Because the hotels in Myrtle Beach, SC will also get you right in the mix for all the excellent events that are hosted on the island. The Fourth of July celebration is so over the top that the area has been named as one of the top 20 destinations for the holiday, and Can-Am Days have been entertaining tourists since 1951. From the Coastal Uncorked food and wine festival to the Myrtle Beach Bike Week, there is always something going on and all you need to do is check the calendar to get your chance to be part of it.

Make the Most of the Sunshine

With so much beachfront to enjoy, it’s a good thing the weather in Myrtle Beach is generally sunny and delightful. For most of the spring, all of summer, and even some of the fall, temperatures stay within the high 70s and low 80s. In fact, the only thing you need to prep for other than a good tan is the occasional thunderstorms coming off the water. Even the winters stay in the high 50s and snow is practically unheard of which means it’s a great place to visit any time of the year.

How to Arrive and Find Your Way Around

Serviced by both the Myrtle Beach International Airport and the Grand Strand Airport, the island has plenty of ways for you to take a flight to get to where you are going. US 501 and US 17 will let you drive in and new roads have recently been constructed on the island to ensure you can get around despite the area’s constantly increasing popularity. Of course, the best part about your stay is that most of the hotels in Myrtle Beach, SC are so close to the best attractions that you’ll be able to walk more times than not.

And Last, but so Very Far from Least
