How to Make a Myrtle Beach Vacation Unique

Vacations are all about memories. Whether it’s memories of the things you did or saw, or just memories of the fun times you had together, these are the things that last far longer than the cheap souvenirs. In very touristy destinations though, it can be difficult to make unique memories that stand out from the rest. A Myrtle Beach vacation can be anything you want it to be, but not if you don’t stray off the beaten path. Here are some insider tips for making a vacation to Myrtle Beach special.

Stay Somewhere Different

Instead of just staying at the same hotel chain you always do, look into a different sort of housing. Rental companies like Seaside Vacations can help you to find a unique rental home or condo that can make Myrtle Beach feel like your home away from home. Often, booking early can save you some serious dough and allow you to spend more time on your vacay.

If you prefer a hotel to a rental, there are still many unique hotel options to make the place you sleep just as special as the activities during the day.

Get off the Beach

A trip to Myrtle Beach is nothing without a few relaxing days at the beach, but too many visitors make the mistake of missing all of the other attractions the area has to offer. Tour the lush greens of Brookgreen Gardens or sample the local wines at La Belle Amie vineyard to see a totally different side of Myrtle Beach.

There are also unique ways to enjoy the beach. Inlet Point Plantation offers horseback tours of the beach, and choosing a sunset or moonlight time slot can be a truly awe-inspiring experience.

Check out Local Festivals

Whether it’s the Beach Boogie & BBQ Festival, Oktoberfest, the World Famous Blue Crab Festival, or the Little River ShrimpFest, planning your trip to coincide with one or more Myrtle Beach festivals is a great way to make your vacation memorable. You definitely won’t avoid the crowds by attending one of these, but you can mingle with locals and check out all that the area has to offer in one convenient place. Sample local fare, learn more about the culture of Myrtle Beach, and meet amazing people from down the street and all around the world.

Eat up!

There’s no excuse for having a bad meal or a boring meal in Myrtle Beach. Do your research ahead of time to find zany restaurants off the beaten path with food and atmospheres that can’t be beat. Try the haunted Brentwood Restaurant and Wine Bistro, a remodeled Victorian house, or the Parson’s Table, a remodeled Gothic revival church. These are just a few of the unique dining options in the area- the best way to find more is to explore!
