Sunny hospitality for a stay that feels like home
The soft white sand of Myrtle Beach stretches along the Atlantic for 96 kilometres. Part of the east coast’s Grand Strand, the best views are won from atop the 187-foot-high SkyWheel – the centrepiece of the oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade. The Promenade boasts an impressive collection of shops and attractions guaranteed to load your arms with crisp paper bags (while making your purse lighter). This famous southern locale has been known to turn skin and soul a golden shade of relaxation, its sandy warmth a magic elixir that chases winter away.
When it comes to food, Myrtle Beach cuisine leaves no one hungry! From lemon-lime surf shacks serving fish tacos and frosty margaritas to low-lit lounges plating stone crab with tangy mustard paired with sauvignon blanc, Myrtle Beach caters to all palates!
Golf and Myrtle Beach go hand in glove. With over 100 meticulous Myrtle Beach courses, many designed by golf pros, there’s truly a golf course “fore” everyone! If you’re feeling adventurous, Charleston, SC is only two hours south of Myrtle Beach. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride down charming, cobblestone streets preserved in history and lined with pastel antebellum houses. Spectacular gardens and gigantic oaks dripping with spanish moss, give Charleston it’s distinctive charm. And don’t miss a visit to the French Quarter or the Battery!
