Why Go to Myrtle Beach
The clean beaches are the main draw in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but there's more to this vacation hot spot than its 60 miles of brown sand. One of the most popular East Coast family vacation destinations, Myrtle Beach boasts amusement parks that offer everything from water slides to roller coasters to race tracks. While the shopaholics of the family spend time at the outlet malls, golfers of all skill levels can flock to one of the area's more than 100 courses, and then the whole family can enjoy pirate or medieval-inspired revues during dinner. When you're not on the beach, attractions like Ripley's Aquarium and the Broadway Grand Prix can entertain family members of all ages. Plus, there's a minor league baseball team for sports lovers. In short, Myrtle Beach is the ideal destination for budget-minded families looking for a multitude of entertainment options without spending a fortune.

Best Things To Do in Myrtle Beach
One of the reasons families love Myrtle Beach is because of the range of activities by the shore. Its nutmeg-colored sand is compact enough to bike on, but the waters are also pleasant (and clear enough) for a little snorkeling or scuba diving at certain points. Other popular activities include more than 100 golf courses, as well as putt-putt courses for the smallest golf pros; amusement parks, such as the Family Kingdom Amusement Park, located just a short drive from the beach; and live evening entertainment like traveler favorites Alabama Theatre and the Carolina Opry.
Best Months to Visit
The best time to visit Myrtle Beach is from June to August when the weather is just right for enjoying the beach. You can expect some afternoon rain showers during this time of year (especially July), and keep in mind that the region's hurricane season will last from June through November. You'll also experience some warm temperatures and slightly cheaper rates if you visit March through May. Autumn ushers in resort deals and cooler temperatures that range from the high 70s to the mid-40s. During winter, chilly temperatures introduce the lowest rates (and fewer crowds), but be aware that some area attractions and restaurants will be closed or offer shortened hours.
Myrtle Beach Travel Tips
What to Eat
Chain restaurants — including Hard Rock Café, Planet Hollywood and Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville — are all over Myrtle Beach. If you are looking for a diverse and innovative foodie scene, this is not where you want to go. But one thing the city doesn't lack is variety. A large selection of restaurants are located along Kings Highway (U.S. Highway 17), so much so that it's often referred to as "Restaurant Row." A decent number of locally owned eateries can also be found with the predominant cuisine theme being seafood. You'll also be able to find some more upscale spots; local and tourist favorites include Sole Italian Restaurant, Fire & Smoke and Aspen Grille.
