Summer time is when most people head out to their nearest vacation spots, but if you’re looking for summer vacation ideas, Myrtle Beach is a great place to visit. What’s so great about this South Carolina town? The list is pretty long; here are just some of the top things to do while you’re there: sightseeing, eating, surfing, water sports, and even playing golf (just the beginning). Myrtle Beach is known as America’s Most Popular Beach, and has been that way for years, so don’t think you need to have a degree in English or any other field just to enjoy Myrtle Beach’s activities.
As far as cheap vacation ideas go, Myrtle Beach is hard to beat. If you’re traveling with the entire family, you can book a “family road trip” to any number of places near or on the beaches, including stops at local attractions like Winyah Beach (a.k.a. Blue Ridge Parkway), Indian Beach (also known as Ocean Isle), Topsail Island, Barefoot Landing, Wolf Ridge, Sand Bar, Devonshire Landing, Cataloochee River, Bogue Sound, and so many more. In total, there are 75 public beaches, along with a lot of private ones, making this place perfect for family trips, beach vacations, romantic getaways, or beach honeymoons.
Another of Myrtle Beach’s great things to do is to enjoy all the sights, sounds, and tastes of the area by taking advantage of all the attractions the area has to offer. If you’re into the ocean, you can dive into one of the many wrecks or sea beds, or just laze on the beaches and let nature take its course. If you’re into golf, there’s no shortage of courses, from holes-filled to par 72. And if you have children, you’ll love to take them to any of the fun little attractions, like the Dog Agility Park or the Fun zone. If your family likes to shop, you’ll find plenty of shopping opportunities at one of Myrtle Beach’s many retail outlets, including Tractor Supply, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Kmart, Sears, and many more. There’s no denying that the South Carolina coast offers endless vacation ideas.
