Mixed in with the ocean breeze is a whole lot of cheese, but that's what makes Myrtle Beach such a delightful destination for families.
Miles of beachfront make up the Grand Strand, but it's adorable attractions like Captain Hook's Adventure Golf, House of Blues and Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede that set it apart from other East Coast beach towns. (The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade is amusingly quintessential.) Oh, and don't forget the golf. Here, championship courses are the rule.
With so many diversions, it's a shame to visit on your own. If you want to get away from it all to a sluggish seaside town, Myrtle Beach might disappoint. However, if you're traveling with a diverse crew and want an action-packed beach vacation, it doesn't get more satisfying than Myrtle Beach.
Check out these large and luxurious Myrtle Beach vacation rentals, each fit for a family reunion. Get away from the crowds, and enjoy your family without sacrificing your own space.
