Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is known as the “Golf Capital of the World” for good reason! Each year thousands of golfers visit the Grand Strand to enjoy hundreds of gorgeous, lush courses and beautiful weather. The Myrtle Beach area is truly a Golfer’s Paradise, as the fun doesn’t end when the round is up! There’s something for everyone here to enjoy. Here’s a quick taste:

World Tour Golf

More Golf Courses in One Place than Anywhere in the World!

Myrtle Beach not only boasts hundreds of beautiful courses and clubs – but also over FIFTY 4-Star or higher rated ones, by Golf Digest, to boot. There’s World Tour, which boasts 18 holes based on the most famous holes in the world. You won’t have to travel far to play Bay Hill, Royal Troon, or even Augusta! Every golfer should make it part of their bucket list to visit the famous Dunes Beach & Golf Club. This unique course was built in 1949 and considered to be the best Jones designed course in his portfolio. No matter where you play, you’re sure to have a great experience.  What’s also great is there’s always fantastic deals to be had during anytime of the year. It’s a breeze to combine your accommodations and tee times.

Over 2,000 Restaurants, Pubs, and Unique Dining Experiences on the Grand Strand!

After a long, hard day on a gorgeous course (wink, wink!) you’ll want to unwind and spend time with your friends and family. Myrtle Beach has exactly what you need! Whether you are looking for a laid back spot, right on the water where you can eat shrimp until you can’t move, or you are looking for an exciting sports bar to watch a ball game, you’ll be taken care of. Myrtle Beach is famous for its seafood but also has many burger joints that make it easy for a quick bite. The two main entertainment complexes, Barefoot Landing and Broadway at the Beach feature top notch and fun restaurants like Greg Norman’s, Paula Deen’s, The Carolina Ale House, and Umberto’s. You can’t go wrong!

Myrtle Beach Fishing

Inshore/Offshore Fishing and the Beauty of the Low Country

Spring, Summer, and Fall bring excellent opportunities for anglers of any skill to have a blast and catch your fill. Inshore fishing can be found along the many piers like Cherry Grove, Apache, Garden City, and 2nd Avenue. A Rod, Reel, Hook, and a piece of Shrimp or “Gotcha” lure is all you need to catch a variety of fish. Spring fishing is great for Bluefish and King Mackerel, Summer is time for Flounder and Sharks, and Fall is time for Spots, Croakers, and Drum. Offshore fishing is an absolute joy here, as you are not too far from the Gulf Stream. Eat a hearty breakfast and make your way to the Hurricane Fleet out of Calabash. You’ll be catching, Snapper, Grouper, and seabass from the many available headboats or charter your own boat to troll for Kings, Dolphin, Tuna, and Spanish Mackerel.

Be sure to also visit the many Low Country parks and recreation areas. Huntington Beach State Park and Brookgreen Gardens are not to be missed. If you need a day away from the links, this is extremely relaxing and recharging!

Myrtle Beach Sands

60 Miles of Pristine White Sandy Beaches

Of course the main feature and draw of Myrtle Beach, SC is the beach itself! We have some of the most beautiful beaches on the east coast. It’s relaxing to take a stroll looking for shark teeth and shells or to simply sit on an oceanfront balcony with a cold beverage while you do absolutely nothing. Once you get your toes in the sand, it’s hard to leave! Be sure to bring a cooler, beach towel, and leave your cares at home!

Springtime in Myrtle Beach

The weather is getting warmer, the lush greens of golf courses dot the landscape, and every other day brings a new festival or event. It’s Springtime in Myrtle Beach, SC! One of the best times of year to visit the Grand Strand is during this magical season of excitement and renewal! Here’s a few reasons why you should visit in the next few months: 

Fun In the Sun

  1. It’s getting warmer! 

I know this is obvious, but there’s something different about 75 degrees and sunny back home and 75 degrees and sunny at THE BEACH! There’s a tangible excitement in the air and positivity everywhere in the Myrtle Beach area. This area features smiling folks ready to share their experience and happiness to visitors from all over. Restaurants open up outdoor seating and there’s nothing quite like a refreshing ocean breeze while enjoying fresh seafood, gourmet burgers, or low country specialties as you gaze upon the surf. Ahhhh……

Blue Crab Festival

2. Festivals and Events

Along with the warm weather comes some really unique and exciting festivals and events. From Little River to Georgetown, the entire 60 mile long Grand Strand has something fun going on! Starting with St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll find parades and festivals in Myrtle and North Myrtle Beach. There’s multiple car shows like the “Run to the Sun” show featuring classic cars where you can view beautiful automobiles inside and out. The World Famous Little River Blue Crab Festival is May 16-17th and features live music, fresh local seafood, and hundreds of vendors. Shopping and entertainment centers like Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing are always offering live music and family friendly activities. There’s a ton of cultural festivals and expos as well as marathons, cheer/dance competitions, baseball/softball tournaments, The Myrtle Beach Pelicans, and conventions of all sorts. Visit Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in the Spring, and you’ll have just one or two things to choose from (wink, wink!).

Brookgreen Gardens

3. Natural Beauty

The birds are singin’ and the flowers are bloomin’! There’s no better time to take a stroll through one of the many parks and nature preserves that “Spring” to life during this wonderful season. The top two places to visit are right across the street from each other in beautiful Murrell’s Inlet: Huntington Beach State Park and Brookgreen Gardens. Here, you can find amazing sculptures, Spring exhibitions, winding paths through live oaks and saltwater estuaries, and all sorts of wildlife. It’s a bird watcher’s paradise at both locales as you can see herons, egrets, mallards, osprey, and even Bald Eagles! You’ll most certainly see alligators. There’s even a butterfly garden at Brookgreen. Besides these two wonders, there’s also dozens of parks that all have unique water features, sporting areas, and walking paths. 

Myrtle Beach Golf

4. Golf, Golf, Golf!

With more golf courses in one place than anywhere in the world, Myrtle Beach truly is the golf capital of the universe! The Springtime golf scene is marvelous on the Grand Strand. There’s always tremendous deals and the courses are at their best.

Vacation Rentals

5. Rates are Great!

We all know that summer rates are higher in beach areas. In the Springtime, you’ll get the beach experience of warm weather, but with less crowds, and lower rates for accommodations, dining, shows, and more. This makes it easier to take a shorter vacation for a long weekend or Spring Break in addition to a longer, traditional summer getaway. Booking a property in advance during the spring with a company like Palmetto Vacation Rentals (shameless plug, I know – but it’s true!) can save you a ton while providing you a much needed getaway. Be sure to ask about promotions and deals when you check into your hotel or vacation rental manager. 

What are you waiting for?! Reserve your Myrtle Beach Springtime getaway now and start making those great beach vacation memories. We’ll see y’all soon!
