    One thing about vacationing at the beach every year is there is bound to be at least one rainy day. Myrtle Beach is an excellent place to vacation, but yes, rain may happen on some afternoons. Staying with us at Myrtle Beach Resort will allow you and your family to enjoy your vacation. Look below at three activities you can do on the next rainy day on The Grand Strand.

    Visit the Aquarium

    One way to help pass the time when it’s raining is to head over the Ripley’s Aquarium at Broadway at the Beach. This is a great place to not only get in a little education while on vacation but also check out the new exhibits they may have. Grab a bite to eat while you’re there at Broadway at the beach at Margaritaville too. Think of the fun you’ll have as a family seeing all the sea life at the aquarium.

    Movie Time

    Another fun thing you can do while in your vacation rental is make popcorn and watch a movie. Pick a movie that you may have brought with you and some snacks from the pantry. Pop some popcorn in the microwave or stovetop for something different. Then just turn the lights down low and enjoy watching a movie together as a family. Think of it like your own little movie theater at the beach!

    Jump at Rockin’ Jump

    If the kids have a ton of energy that they need to get out, then head on over to Rockin’ Jump located on N Oak Street in Myrtle Beach. Here the whole family will be able to jump, rock climb and just get all the energy out they may have. They do offer promotions and different offers that may work best for your family. Make new memories as you try something new at the beach.

    While they are plenty of other things you can do on a rainy day in Myrtle Beach, we had to share these with you. If you are still looking for a place to stay, give us a call today at Myrtle Beach Resort. We look forward to seeing you soon and getting to enjoy time together as a family!

  • Book Direct Day is February 2nd, 2022 & a Day to Save You Money 

    Are you and your family planning a vacation to Myrtle Beach later this year? We need to tell you why you should #bookdirect with us if you are. Many online third-party vacation rental sites can add a 5%-20% additional fee to your reservation. We know that your vacations are significant and may limit how much you can spend each year. We at Myrtle Beach Resort wants to make sure that you get the most out of your money when you’re on vacation. The only way that you’ll be able to enjoy your vacation without getting hit with that unexpected fee is by booking direct today!

    A Little About #BookDirect Day

    On February 2nd, 2022, we celebrate the 5th Annual Book Direct Day, which was created to help educate vacation rental guests on the benefits of booking directly through an owner or Property Management Company vs. using a Third-Party agency such as Airbnb, HomeAway, VBRO & TripAdvisor.

    While you may recognize these big-name companies and their gimmicks in helping you save money, you will soon learn that they will charge you a fee for using their website. Who wants to pay extra just to try and save a little money? Some of the expenses that you may incur when you book with an OTA can range from 5%-20% of the total cost of your vacation rental, which in turn can cost you thousands of dollars extra depending on which rental you choose.

    Go on an adventure! Happy family preparing for the journey. Mom and daughters are packing suitcases for the trip.
