Five Ways to Save on Your Next Trip to Myrtle Beach
Everyone knows Myrtle Beach is all about palm trees, sun, sand and relaxing with friends and family. What is often less well-known is how to get your toes in the sand and your face in the sun while also keeping some bills in your wallet. Fortunately, we have some tips for you!
1.) Book in advance. You’ll get better rates, and you can often take advantage of special sales. The closer you get to your travel dates, the more likely you are to run into high-demand seasons, and the higher prices will be.
2.) Visit in the off-season. Winter, spring and fall area all fantastic times to visit Myrtle Beach, for varying reasons. Our winters here in South Carolina are much milder than in much of the U.S., and certainly Canada, as well, so you’ll find that many people still enjoy walking the boardwalk, playing golf, and spending plenty of time on the beach, even in the middle of winter. And spring and fall often provides the best weather of the year, with little rain and mild, sunny conditions that are perfect for lounging in the sunshine.
3.) Pack smart. If you can bring supplies from home, do so. You’ll likely save big when the kids get hungry during the day at the beach.
4.) Consider staying in a condo rather than an efficiency room. While efficiencies can be terrific for short trips, the full kitchen in the condo units make it very easy to save on food costs by cooking meals right in your room. Really, not many restaurants have better views than the one you can get right off your own balcony at Paradise Resort, so why bother?!
5.) Find fun things to do that are free. There are plenty of free things to do in Myrtle Beach, so be sure to take advantage of them so that your money goes farther. There’s walking the boardwalk, getting up early to watch a sunrise, the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum, the South Carolina Hall of Fame … and of course the number one free attraction in the entire state of South Carolina: The beach!
