The primary reasons for going on vacation are to relax and have a good time. At The Strand in Myrtle Beach, guests have all the amenities to accomplish that mission and more, without ever leaving the resort.

Located on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront, The Strand is as well known for its luxurious amenities as it is for its clean and comfortable accommodations. Formerly known as The Breakers Boutique North Tower, The Strand has a new name but the same first-class amenities that keep guests coming back year after year.

For vacationers coming to enjoy Myrtle Beach’s white-sand beaches, it all starts with The Strand’s oceanfront pool deck with direct access to the beach. Stroll down to the beach or kick back in a cozy lawn chair on The Strand’s expansive tanning lawn. Private cabanas are also available for those who prefer seclusion while they are soaking up some sun and shade.

For those looking to take a break from the heat, guests can cool off in the recently renovated pool area that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. The Strand also offers a kiddie pool for the little ones to play and a spacious hot tub where grown-ups can take a relaxing soak. Guests also have full access to the pool deck and all the amenities at the sister resort, The Breakers, which is located just a few blocks south.

The Strand also offers a Kids Club filled with daily activities, including beach and pool games, arts and crafts projects, and ice cream and pizza parties. Most activities are free, although there is a small charge for projects that require materials. Check for a daily and weekly listings of Kids Club activities.

Of course, getting your children involved in the Kids Club could open up some free time for parents to enjoy some “me time.” The Strand’s state-of-the-art fitness center and exercise room has a wide selection of cardio and weight training options. If you need to attend to a little work during your vacation, the business station offers a great place to get things done quickly in a quiet environment with the latest in high-tech equipment.

Once you’ve had your workout and put in some time with work, you can finally relax and enjoy even more amenities at The Strand. Enjoy breakfast every morning at the on-site Market Restaurant, which converts into a fine-dining establishment serving at nights. Like the Market Restaurant, The Strand Bar also offers scenic ocean views and serves adult beverages in a casual atmosphere.

For guests looking to get off the property and explore the area, The Strand can even help you out in the endeavor. Upon checking in, you will receive a Sun Fun Bonus package that includes one free ticket to some of the area’s top attractions. Families of four can save more than $100 by taking advantage of these freebies.

From now through June 6, guests receive an all-day, all-you-can-ride wristband to the new Broadway Grand Prix, which is located about 1 mile from the premises across from Broadway at the Beach. The series of tracks include circular, figure-8 and zigzag patterns that allow you to test your skills against friends and fellow drivers. Adults looking for high-speed thrills can go for a pace car ride at the NASCAR Racing Experience at Myrtle Beach Speedway.

Beginning June 7 and running throughout the summer, guests receive one free pass to Myrtle Waves Waterpark, which is also located at nearby Broadway at the Beach, a Super Pack Ticket to Fun Warehouse, and free passes to play putt-putt golf at Cancun Lagoon, Molten Mountain and Mutiny Bay. Guests also have access to free unlimited DVD rentals and more just for staying at The Strand.
