Myrtle Beach– Why I Love It and Why YOU Need to Go

Myrtle_Beach_Infographic I am very very happy to be living back in Georgia.  We’re closer to family, which is incredibly important to me.  We got to be present at the birth of our new niece, I get to watch my little sister play soccer, and Raileigh gets to visit with her grandparents far more often.  It’s much easier now that we aren’t five hours away in South Carolina.

That being said… there are things about South Carolina that I truly miss.

One of those things is Myrtle Beach.  We lived about 2.5 hours south of the Grand Strand and often took overnight or weekend trips there.  Our favorite time to visit was in the off-season.  During the winter months, there were very few tourists but Myrtle Beach still has a lot to offer.

Have you ever taken a walk on the beach to watch the sunrise when it’s cold outside?  It is incredible.  Several years ago, we were at Myrtle Beach for our anniversary and I vividly recall walking along an almost deserted beach, wrapped in a thick sweater, taking in the absolute stunning beauty I was greeted with.  Words simply cannot describe it.

Then there are all the Myrtle Beach attractions.  In case you’ve never been to Myrtle Beach, let’s just say that you’ll have a ton to choose from.  I’ve been to Myrtle Beach numerous times and we have only scratched the surface when it comes to what you can do there.

The infographic included in this post gives a good sampling of what you can look forward to on your vacation to Myrtle Beach.  In case it isn’t evident– there is something for everyone.  Just looking at all these fun options makes me wish even more that I was there!

I invite you to get more information about the attractions, accommodations, and everything that one of our favorite beach destinations has to offer.

I’d love to know– have you ever been to Myrtle Beach?  What’s your favorite thing to do while on vacation there?

    I’ve never been to Myrtle Beach (even though I live in GA myself) – it appears I need to double think about where the family vacations next. I think your right – I need to go too. Thanks for the information.

    I have never been to Myrtle Beach in the off season. But i have a little experience in visiting a beach in off season, the one at Cedar Point in Ohio. During the summer it’s packed but winter it’s a site to be seen when there aren’t a ton of people.
