The Grand Strand. America’s Beach Playground. Golf Capital of the World. Miniature Golf Capital of the World. The Myrtle Beach area has been called all these and more, but our guests simply know it as the Absolute Best Place for a Family Vacation in the World.
Let’s start with the beach. With over 60 virtually unbroken miles of beautiful golden sands, it’s easy to see how the area earned its Grand Strand nickname. From sunbathing to sandcastles, surfing to surf fishing, the beach is our biggest attraction for good reason. Perhaps its best feature, however, is that unlike theme parks and other family destinations (and even some beaches!,) our beach is always completely FREE!
Even though the beach is far and away our most popular attraction, most families know that variety is the spice of life, and that’s where the Myrtle Beach area truly shines. With amusement parks, waterparks, miniature golf, the Downtown Boardwalk, the Market Common shopping and entertainment district, the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, outlet malls, fishing piers and charters, jetskiing, kayaking, parasailing… well, you get the idea. Plus, with over 1,800 restaurants (and no, that’s not a misprint!,) ranging from fast food to fine dining, you’ll never have to wonder where to eat.
Golfers have known for years that the Myrtle Beach area has no equal when it comes to the sheer variety of courses. With nearly 100 courses, the area truly has something for everyone. What many don’t know, however, is that the quality of courses found here rivals any destination in the world. From the world-famous Dunes Golf and Beach Club to historic plantation courses like Caledonia to state of the art courses like the TPC of Myrtle Beach, you’ll have plenty of chances to test your mettle against the best in the world.
The bottom line is that no other destination on earth offers families the variety, economy and fun offered by the Myrtle Beach area. Come see for yourself, and we’re sure you’ll agree.
