Bring the family for an early dinner and enjoy some local favorites like fried pickles, fish tacos, and coconut shrimp.

And before you head off to do a little shopping while you’re at Barefoot Landing, enjoy a little dessert.

Byrd’s Famous Cookies

While Byrd’s Famous Cookies isn’t an actual restaurant, we still thought we’d mention it to you. Located at Broadway at the Beach is where you’ll find tasty treats for the family. Some of the items they offer are Cupcake Cookie, Almond Shortbread Cookies, and Georgia Peach Cookies.

We promise that you will want to visit more than once on your next trip to Myrtle Beach Resort.

Fun Amusement Parks

Myrtle Beach is a great place to get the best of both worlds, with the beach and amusement parks. There are now two that are located on the Grand Strand and just a short drive from our resort. Family Kingdom is a short 10 minute drive and has been open since 1966. The Funplex Myrtle Beach just opened up a few weeks ago and is a short 15 minute drive. Both of these parks offers rides for all ages and is perfect for a day or evening at the park. After a fun filled day riding thrill rides and family fun rides, head back to our resort and relax a little in the A/C. Think of the fun your family will have checking both of these amusement parks out this summer!

While there are other fun things that you can enjoy on your next vacation to Myrtle Beach, we wanted to share these. If you haven’t booked your vacation to stay with us at Myrtle Beach Resort, now is the time. We hope to see you and your family this summer as you make new memories together!

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

Do you have a spring break vacation planned to Myrtle Beach this year? If the answer is yes, then we understand that spending the week sitting on the beach soaking up the rays is just what you need.  Staying in one of our Two-Bedroom vacation rentals will keep you close to the beach but having the right things in your beach bag will allow you to enjoy your vacation. We have compiled a small list of what to pack in your beach bag for your next vacation to Myrtle Beach below.

Beach Bag Contents

Beach Towels

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

When you are on vacation making sure you have packed everything before you leave home is essential. So be sure to pack a towel for everyone in your family whether you are going to sit in the sun or swim in the ocean. Bringing an extra towel with you is always a good idea especially if you have little ones with you. Having a beach towel with a different design can help each member in your group remember which one theirs is. Sewing one corner of the towel can allow you to have a little pocket so that you can place a phone or glasses in them to keep them from the sand.

Sunscreen

With the hot, southern sun sunscreen is a must for any beach bag. Use a sunscreen that is designed for your beach activities such as waterproof, sport, high SPF, etc.). Dermatologists suggests that you use a sunscreen with at least 30 SPF while you are enjoying the sunshine. And don’t forget to Reapply throughout your day as we don’t want you to ruin your vacation the very first day your here with a sunburn. Having a bottle of aloe that you can put into the fridge will help make the sunburns cool and feel refreshing in case someone in the family does get a little too much sun one day.

Mesh Sand Toys Bag

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

Anytime you go on vacation with kids, you have to bring a ton of sand toys with you. We understand bringing sand back with you into your vacation rental is not necessary and can be quite a hassle. So, if you pack a mesh bag such as a laundry bag or a bag specifically for beach toys can help eliminate the mess. Just throw the sandy toys into the bag, give it a good shake or two and leave the sand behind at the beach.

Hats & Sunglasses

Packing sunglasses and hats are a must anytime you visit Myrtle Beach. The sun is much hotter than it is in the north, so we want to make sure that your eyes and face are protected. Having sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun bright rays and will offer you some relief when trying to keep an eye on your little ones playing. Whether you have a floppy hot or a baseball cap, you will be happy that you brought these along with you. Don’t forget to pack one for everyone in the family.

Water Resistant Phone Pouch

Between the water, sun and sand, the beach is filled with many things that can damage your phone. Bringing a water-resistant pouch to the beach can be a lifesaver for many. If you come on vacation and realize you don’t have one, a sandwich bag or Ziploc bag will do the same as the phone pouch. They will keep your phone protected from the elements at the beach and you can even use it while it’s in the bag or pouch.

Baby Powder for Sand Removal

Baby powder may not seem like an item you would bring with you to the beach, but it’s a wonderful hack for anyone who is on vacation. Whether you are staying in a vacation rental or you decided to drive your car to the beach access, sand will be all over you when you leave the beach. So, bringing baby powder in your beach bag will magically get the sand off of your body without irritation and leave a nice scent too. This is perfect for everyone in the family and not just the kids.

Reading Material

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

One way that you can improve your tan and your mood is by bringing a book or magazine to the beach. We understand that bringing your children to the beach means less time to read a book, but maybe bring a few of their books too. This way when you are ready to read a little, have them come play in the sand near where you are or have them sit under the umbrella and read a little bit of their own book.

There are many other things that you can pack into your beach bag, but these are the must have items for your next vacation. If you are still searching for the perfect resort to stay at for spring break, then check out our Myrtle Beach vacation rentals. We can’t wait for your family to come and vacation with us!

This could take you and your family all day to go through and experience such a fun thing to do for a day together.

Miniature Golf Anyone?

Many people these days can remember vacationing at the beach and heading over to do a night or two of miniature golf with their family. So, why not start this as a tradition with your family on each vacation you take to Myrtle Beach? There are plenty of miniature golf places around Myrtle Beach whether it’s in North or South, you will find a mini-golf place. But pick a few places to try before trying to figure out if it’s the new “family” mini-golf course you want to visit every trip. And you may find that some of your family members will be very competitive too which can be fun for everyone. But just go out and enjoy the day or the evening with your loved ones.

Eat

We have to say that anytime you go on vacation, it’s always nice to eat out for a few days. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner there is something for everyone in Myrtle Beach. Of course, there are plenty of chain restaurants for you to try, but why not try a few that you may not have thought about. Carolina Roadhouse is a wonderful restaurant that you can eat at that not only has amazing food, but whenever you order a salad, it will come with a glazed croissant that is to die for. Another local favorite would have to be Tupelo Honey which has excellent food choices for everyone in the family.

4 Reasons Why Myrtle Beach in December is a Must

If you like many other families out there need to get away for a weekend or a week, then consider coming to Myrtle Beach. Coming to the beach during December can seem like a crazy idea, but in fact it’s not. December is a great time of the year to visit Myrtle Beach and stay in one of our 2-Bedroom Condos.

Let’s look at the 4 reasons why Myrtle Beach in December is must.

Less Crowded

If you are looking for a nice, relaxing kind of getaway then consider coming to Myrtle Beach during the off-season. During the month of December, you will most likely be dealing with the locals and not the crazy summer crowds. That means most likely the attractions will be less crowded meaning if there is a show you’d like to go see, go see it! Less crowded means that the pools won’t be crazy packed either and you can take advantage of our indoor pools we have at Myrtle Beach Resort.

Beautiful Weather

4 Reasons Why Myrtle Beach in December is a Must

While the weather back home will most likely be cold and the streets covered in snow, come enjoy our beautiful weather we have here. With the average temperature of 60 degrees you can wear shorts if you choose to. If you’d like to head to the beach for a day and enjoy the sand and a nice walk down the beach, then you can. Who would want to be snowed in at home rather than be at the beach for a nice vacation? We do recommend bringing long pants and a jacket or sweatshirt with you for the evenings.

Fun Events

The month of December is full of fun events surrounding the holidays. From walking around Broadway at the Beach to see their festive decorations to going to Brookgreen Gardens to see their Night of a Thousand Candles. You will not be bored with what is happening throughout Myrtle Beach. If you are looking at something fun to see go we recommend checking out the following events:

Golf

4 Reasons Why Myrtle Beach in December is a Must

Golfing in the winter in Myrtle Beach is not like it is in the spring, summer and fall.
