Myrtle Beach

Your Myrtle Beach vacation

Whatever your SPF, Myrtle Beach is a sunbathing town, from Ocean Boulevard to Cherry Grove. Cruise the Intracoastal Waterway, chock full of amusement parks, country-music shows and Southern culture.

Ride a pontoon boat past rice plantations, or zip down a speed slide at Family Kingdom. History buffs get their fix in nearby Georgetown or Pawley's Island, home of the famous hammock maker. Golfers, this "seaside golf capital of the world" is home to over a hundred golf courses designed by pros with household names.

While you pack for your Myrtle Beach vacation, let Orbitz help you with the planning. We'll share our top 10 highlights, the best time to go and insider tips.
