Newly Listed Non-Stop Flights to Myrtle Beach

If you’ve been waiting for an affordable direct flight into Myrtle Beach, SC, the time has come. Frontier Airlines has 35 new routes and four new cities to which Myrtle Beach SC is one of.

Newly Listed Non-Stop Flights to Myrtle Beach

Direct flights to Myrtle Beach will fill up fast so by booking sooner rather than waiting you can save a lot of money on your next vacation. For many this may be the difference between enjoying a vacation to the coastal shores of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina or not.

Recently, Denver-based Frontier Airlines announced that it would start operating out of Myrtle Beach International Airport, with some flights starting as low as $39 each way! The first three cities with non-stop flights from Myrtle Beach are Islip, New York; Trenton, New Jersey; and Denver, Colorado.

Flights begin in late May 2018, with Islip flight service beginning May 20, Trenton flights beginning on the 21st and Denver on the 23rd. Introductory fares started at $39 each way for flights on select days through Aug. 11, 2018, but they had to be purchased before midnight Feb. 12, 2018.

Newly Listed Non-Stop Flights to Myrtle Beach

“The demand from those markets to Myrtle Beach and actually the demand from here to those locations, it’s very strong,” said Kirk Lovell, Director of Air Service and Business Development, Horry County Department of Airports. “And because we’ve not had non-stop air service before, we’ve been missing a huge opportunity.”

Lovell added that Myrtle Beach Intl. Airport is one of the cheaper airports in the state, but Frontier Airlines Senior Legal Council Valerie Tyler said some fares at the airport were higher than average, making this airport a good choice for the expansion that included Frontier Airlines.

“We’re looking for unfilled demand and an ability to offer lower fares,” Tyler said. “We’re looking for markets where the fares are maybe a little bit high and we can slip under there and provide a lower fare. I know when I flew out here, I paid more than I will be paying on Frontier.”

Frontier Airlines is the 10th airline operating out of MYR, which now has non-stop service from 45 different markets, Lovell said.

Things You Should Know About Hurricanes

Hurricane season is from May through November. As with most things, education is key to knowing how to handle conditions should you find a hurricane headed your way. Knowing the essentials of how to prepare and what to do could be a lifesaver. Hurricanes are more active at this time of the year which is why you’re hearing more about them now.

Things You Should Know About Hurricanes

Terminology You’ll Be Hearing

o Hurricane Watch: Hurricane conditions are possible in the area. Watches are issued 48 hours in advance of the anticipated onset of tropical storm force winds.
o Hurricane Warning: Hurricane conditions are expected in the area. Warnings are issued 36 hours in advance of tropical storm force winds.
o The Eye: A clear, sometimes well-defined center of the storm with calmer conditions.
o Eye Wall: Surrounding the eye of the hurricane, it contains some of the most severe weather of the storm with the highest wind speed and largest precipitation.
o Rain Bands: Produce severe weather conditions such as heavy rain, wind and tornadoes.
o Storm Surge: An often underestimated and deadly result of ocean water swelling as a result of a storm that reaches landfall. The surge has enough power to cause flooding along the coast and areas further inland.

What To Do and Where To Go

During a watch, prepare your home and evacuation plan in case a warning is issued. If you’re on vacation, contact us about our hurricane preparedness plan. During a warning, carefully follow the directions of local officials in your area, and immediately leave if they advise it. In the event of an extreme wind warning/advisory, which means that extreme sustained winds of 115 mph or greater are expected to begin within an hour, immediately take shelter in the interior portion of a well-built structure.

Forecasts and Predictions

Predicting the path of a storm can be challenging at best. The storm’s size and path can directly influence what sort of wind patterns guide, enhance or hinder its growth. Forecasters have computers that take large amounts of data and predict where the storm will go and can usually calculate 2-3 days out fairly accurately. Generally the forecast track or path is given with the average consensus of these models.

For More Information

The National Hurricane Center has the most up-to-date information on hurricane developments, forecasts and weather alerts, discussions analyzing the data and more.

Best Father’s Day Gift Ideas Ever

Father’s Day is all about celebrating the uniqueness of Dads, Granddads and soon-to-be-dads. Fathers come with differing interests, likes and ideas of what constitutes fun. For all those dads and their families who are spending time with us at Myrtle Beach Resort this month, this blog post will provide you with some great ideas to make Dad’s day special!


Here are great Father’s Day ideas to make the holiday extra special and forever memorable to the amazing dad in your life. Why not give him an unforgettable Father’s Day and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Here are our Father’s Day recommendations for Dad’s special day.

For the dad who loves fine dining
What’s better than a night out surrounded by those you love the most? Make plans to take dad for a nice dinner out on the Grand Strand. Fresh and succulent seafood is the specialty in this area, so if dad is a seafood lover, there are plenty of choices. There are also numerous steak houses, Italian restaurants and more for every taste and preference. Here’s a list by Trip Advisor of restaurants in Myrtle Beach.

For the dad who loves a casual meal
Light up the grill! Whether you’re cooking at home or on the beach, you can keep it casual yet delicious with a barbecue. Pick his favorites and create a specially tailored menu that’s sure to please. Don’t forget the wonderful local markets where you can pick up the freshest locally grown produce, specialty items, and the fresh catch of the day straight from the fishermen’s boat to your table.

For the dad who loves quality family time
There are plenty of ways to enjoy meaningful time with your family during your Father’s Day stay at Myrtle Beach Resort. Why not choose that quintessential family night out at the beach and try your hand at a round of miniature golf? When’s the last time you and dad went to head-to-head on the putting green?

For the dad who loves to fish
Fishing adventures abound along the Grand Strand. Make a day of it whether you’re taking dad to the fishing pier to drop a line or on a high seas adventure on a chartered fishing boat. Here’s a list of where to fish in the Myrtle Beach area.

For the dad who loves the outdoors
Spend time with dad outside, get some exercise and take in the stunning coastal views that surround you. Take Dad parasailing, kayaking the inlets in the area or go rent some jet skis and power down the IntraCoastal Waterway!

For the dad who loves to golf
The Grand Strand area is home to over 125 championship golf courses. That’s enough to make Dad say “ahhhh…” Myrtle Beach is known as the golf capital of the east coast and once Dad plays here he’ll know why. Gorgeous greens and incredible views make your golf date with dad extra special. Find a golf course in Myrtle Beach to play!

For the dad who loves the beach
Pack up all your gear and bring dad to the Myrtle Beach State Park and spend your day together soaking up the rays, sinking your toes in the sand and feeling the ocean breeze. Memories will be made, relaxation will be had, and you’ll walk away feeling refreshed and rejuvenated while spending quality time together.

Happy Father’s Day to all of the special dads out there! May your day be the best it can be and spent with those who matter most.
