Tips for Picking Myrtle Beach Resorts

Oct 11, 2007
Heading to one of the Myrtle Beach resorts for your next family vacation is a great way to ensure you have fun and a good time. Myrtle Beach is famous for its golf courses and its family vacation spots, making it the ideal place to spend the summer or any time of year.

Myrtle Beach is one of the top domestic tourist spots in the United States, so book your family vacation early. With over sixty miles of beaches and loads of opportunity for fun in the sun, picking the best of the many oceanfront resorts takes on new importance in planning your vacation. There are several resorts to choose from, making selection a little bit complicated if you aren't too familiar with the area.

Here are some tips that will help:

Location, Location, Location The first thing to do when planning your family vacation is to check out the location of some of the various resorts. Consult a map of the area and find the address of some prospective Myrtle Beach resorts or hotels. This allows you to see how close your potential vacation spot will be to the beach and to other places of interest in the South Carolina hotspot. Choose Wisely Picking from the large catalogue of Myrtle Beach resorts and hotels can seem complicated with all of the variety, so knowing what you want before you book will help make the decision easier. Sit down with your family or vacation companions and look through the options. Ask a few basic questions, such as:

What amenities are important, such as pools (indoor or outdoor) and spa services? Many resorts offer plenty of options and features. Exercise rooms, luxury rooms and more are generally available at most resorts.

How long a stay is planned? For longer stays, area condominium units are recommended, as the cost effectiveness is more in line with a lengthy vacation. Condo rentals and oceanfront vacation facility rentals are especially handy for family vacation plans with larger families.

What is the focus of the vacation? Choosing Myrtle Beach resorts has a lot to do with the type of vacation you want to have. If you want to do a lot of golfing, the resort, condo or hotel you choose should be near the many golf courses available. If you want a more beach-oriented vacation, pick a resort right on the beach itself!

Look for Deals

One of the best pieces of advice for selecting a Myrtle Beach resort for family vacations is to check the newspaper or online for specials and deals. Several websites advertise great deals on condo rentals or standard hotel or resort stays, complete with package deals that may include free golf or discounts on lots of local activities.

Planning a family vacation can be overwhelming for tourists, but if you keep in mind the very basics of vacation planning and learn a little bit about the area, you can plan the best time of your life! Myrtle Beach resorts range from the very luxurious to the very modest, so choose wisely and enjoy your time in South Carolina's vacation hotspot!
