Welcome To The Beach!
The Grand Strand of South Carolina has become a year-round vacation playground featuring 60 miles of uninterrupted beach. The destination of choice for some 14 million adults and children every year, the area consistently ranks as one of the top family resorts in the nation.
But Myrtle Beach today is more than sun and sand and ocean. Not only can you Jet Ski, windsurf, sail, and kayak, but you can also explore the marshes and mysterious black water rivers in a pontoon craft. With more than 100 championship golf courses and dining at more than 1,650 restaurants, it is a resort destination that rivals any in the world.
The true Southern flavor of Myrtle Beach can be seen in the antebellum plantations, parks, and famous gardens. Shoppers will revel in the thrifty outlets or unique specialty stores. Then at night, another life begins. Choose from Broadway musicals, jousting tournaments, big-name concerts, musical tributes, and live variety reviews offered at a dozen world-class theaters. After a full day of sun and fun you can rest at one of the 60,000 hotels and condominiums, seaside cottages, and campsites.
Vacationers from all around appreciate the perfect blend of seasonal temperatures. With ideal beach weather in the summer, pleasant springs, warm autumns and only 42 frost days with no hard winters, you'll know why for three consecutive years the Wall Street Journal and Money magazine have designated the Grand Strand as one of the Top Places to Retire in the country.
