Set along South Carolina’s Atlantic Coast, Myrtle Beach offers more than 60 miles of pristine beaches and some of the world’s finest golf courses. Named after the southern wax myrtle (a local plant in the area) Myrtle Beach resorts welcome around 17 million visitors each year.
Packed with funfair rides, Myrtle Beach resorts are great for family vacations. A typical Myrtle Beach hotel offers outdoor pools, views of the Atlantic Ocean, and on-site dining. Many hotels in Myrtle Beach resorts also provide extras, such as hot tubs, indoor pools and children’s play areas.
Myrtle Beach resort hotels are close to one of the biggest water park along the Grand Strand: the Myrtle Waves. This outdoor waterpark houses more than 30 rides and slides, along with lazy rivers and splash areas for the youngest of visitors.
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is lined with designer clothing stores, boutique shops and market stalls, all set against a quaint, small-town backdrop. To get everything you need under one roof, head to the Coastal Grand Mall along Myrtle Beach’s oceanfront.
Towards the end of Myrtle Beach, you’ll find plenty of family-friendly attractions, such as the Myrtle Beach Resort SkyWheel, the “Nightmare Haunted House”, and Myrtle Beach Resort Zipline Adventures.
