Why Our Vacation Rentals Outclass Hotels

Are you in need of time away? Escape to coastal South Carolina for a vacation that will both relax and rejuvenate you without breaking the bank. Vacation rentals have become a trend for accommodations when vacationing in the South Carolina area. At Myrtle Beach Resort, our condo rentals have become the preferred accommodations for families of any size looking for a comfortable place to stay with their family while in the area. Our spacious accommodations go over and beyond providing the comfort and luxury that hotels are known for. Why not come see for yourself!

Why Our Vacation Rentals Outclass Hotels

There are plenty of advantages you can enjoy when choosing our beach vacation rentals in Myrtle Beach as opposed to a typical hotel or motel room. Even our smallest vacation rental has at least two bedrooms, full kitchen, dining area, private bathroom and an ample size living room for your family to relax in and be together. Compared to an ordinary hotel room, vacation rentals have more space, privacy and all the amenities you can get from hotels and similar types of accommodations plus more.

The easiest way to find and secure vacation rentals is right from the Myrtle Beach Resort website where you can browse what we have available and make your reservations, too. What could be easier than making your reservations while you are at the office or in your own living room.

Why Our Vacation Rentals Outclass Hotels

If you prefer, you could coordinate with a travel agent to make your reservations for any of our spacious condos. You could also send for brochures from the local Chamber of Commerce, get referrals from friends or check out different online travel guides for recommendations on places to stay. We know how satisfied you’ll be when you stay here.

With over 60 miles worth of beaches lining the South Carolina coastline, you’ll never run out of beachfront to walk, run, and frolic on. Because this is a popular vacation spot, Myrtle Beach Resort has many rentals available where you can stay and enjoy what just might be one of the best vacations of your life.

What You Should Know About Biking in Myrtle Beach

Each year the City of Myrtle Beach publishes a bicycle safety brochure along with maps designating bike lanes and multipurpose lanes around the city for biking in Myrtle Beach. For the convenience of our guests staying with us at Myrtle Beach Resorts we’ll share that information with you here. Bicycle rentals in Myrtle Beach are easy to come by as we reported in a recent blog entitled Where to Find Bicycle Rentals in Myrtle Beach.

What You Should Know About Cycling Myrtle Beach

Español-Inglés — Spanish and English Brochure (PDF)

This valuable information is what keeps our many cycling visitors and residents safe in and around the Grand Strand area. Thanks to a suggestion from the Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Committee, the city has created a new mobile device BikeMB App that shows bicycle trails in The Market Common. Now in beta testing, the app also lets riders log any bicycle accidents they may have had. Click here to view the new app.

10 Important Facts for Safe Cycling in Myrtle Beach

1.   Bicyclists riding on the roadway must travel in the extreme right lane in the direction of the traffic — not against it!

2.   Whenever possible, bicyclists should ride on bike paths or designated bicycle lanes, such as those located on Mr. Joe White Avenue or North Ocean Boulevard.

3.   Bicyclists must obey all road signs and traffic signals, and must give turn signals just as motorists do.

4.   Bicyclists may not ride on ordinary pedestrian sidewalks. They may ride on special wide, multi-purpose sidewalks designed for a combination of bicycle and pedestrian traffic, such as those running along Grissom Parkway.

5.   Bicyclists should not disregard the rights of pedestrians and motorists — respect them just as you want them to respect you.

6.   It is illegal to ride through a pedestrian crosswalk. Climb off the bike and walk your bicycle across the road.

7.   A bicyclist riding in the dark must have a headlight on the front of his bicycle and a red reflector on the rear.

8.   Never carry additional passengers on a bicycle!

9.   Watch motorists carefully! They may be talking on a cell phone, texting, eating… But they are bigger than you are so, as the saying goes, “give a fool a wide berth.”

10. Protect your head. Wear a helmet!

Bicycles are allowed on the beach before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. from May 1 through Labor Day. Bicycles are allowed on the boardwalk only between 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. from May 1 through Labor Day.
