What does summer remind you of? No school? Fun outside? Warm weather and setting up on the beach? Well, if you’re a fan of country music, you can combine all of those things and some of the top names in country music into one great trip. Pack up the car, pick up the kids, ditch the book bags, and head on down to sunny South Carolina for the third annual Carolina Country Music Fest, held June 8-11 right on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront.

This popular three-day festival is one of the greatest country music events to hit the beach and is sure to be one not to miss! Read on to find out more on how to kick off your summer and celebrate the end of another long school year the right way.

If you attended the festival last year, you saw headliners such as Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Florida Georgia Line, along with many other smaller but well-known acts. Maybe you thought it was great last year and there was no way it could possibly get any better, but think again. Now in its third year, this festival is bringing its largest number of performers yet and packing in some of country’s greatest with a lineup featuring Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Darius Rucker, all accompanied by dozens of smaller acts such as Jordan Rager and Kevin Mac.

While CCMF is very entertaining for all who attend, it is also doing a lot of good for the Carolina community. From ticket sales to souvenirs and concessions, a share of the profits made during this three-day festival will go to the Charlotte Jaycee Foundation. This foundation supports and provides opportunities for young adults in North Carolina by giving them the resources they need to grow up and become great adults. It also gives youths a great foundation to start helping them form connections and get jobs to advance them toward their dream careers. So while you are dancing around, filling your head with all of the great tunes and making memories with your family and friends, you will also be filling your soul with happiness, knowing that you are helping kids follow their dreams!

But what if you’re traveling from out of town and need a place to stay? It shouldn’t be a problem with all of the great places to stay in and around Myrtle Beach. But one option seems to really stand out  – Ocean Reef Resort is one of the area’s highest-rated places to stay, and for many reasons! There are a ton of rooms with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, multiple pools and waterparks, an incredible fitness center, and an out-of-this-world staff to make your stay very enjoyable. While all of those qualities might just convince you to stay at Ocean Reef, the deals available will make you call and reserve at this very moment. For those staying at the resort for the duration of this festival, tickets can be purchased through the resort for 40 percent off their regular price – which can help you save a ton of money!

So, considering the incredible lineup and the opportunity to watch country music’s top acts on the sunny and sandy beaches of South Carolina, in addition to staying at a great resort and helping a great cause just by attending this fantastic June festival, you would be crazy to miss this great weekend of fun!
