Myrtle Beach is the place to be for retirement or a break from everyday life for a weekend.
And when it comes to a destination like the Grand Strand, there will always be questions. Can I walk my dog on the beach? What’s the difference between “oceanfront” and “ocean view”?
And why do they call it the Grand Strand, anyway?
Here are answers to frequently asked questions.
In spring and summer, most beaches don’t allow tents. Less-traveled beaches will sometimes allow tents. Beach umbrellas are okay if they meet the size restrictions. Baby tents and the like are fine.
Open beer, wine, or liquor containers aren’t allowed in any public place. This includes streets, sidewalks, and beach areas.
Both include ocean views. Oceanfront rooms usually have the most spectacular views at the resort, because they face the ocean. Rates are higher, but for many, that open view of the Atlantic is worth it.
A room from which you can see the ocean is considered an “ocean view”. They usually cost less, and still offer a view of the ocean, but it might be obstructed.
Many properties have pool features and other amenities that are convenient for families. Caribbean Resort is the only place with the Pirates’ Plunge water park and Sea Captain’s House next door.
The most effective way to get a great rate is to be flexible with your vacation dates. Here’s a breakdown by day of those that can save you some money.
Strand was once used in reference to an area of land that borders a body of water. Myrtle Beach has 60 miles of wonderful beaches. That’s pretty grand in our book.
Choose a place with an ideal location and thoughtful amenities. A place such as Caribbean Resort. It’s a traditional stop for many, with its lovely grounds, spacious rooms, and exceptional value.
