It’s hard to believe that May is just around the corner, and soon kids will be out of school for the summer. May is an excellent time of the year to visit Myrtle Beach as the weather is getting warmer but still not hot like it will become June and July. Staying with us at Myrtle Beach Resort will keep you and your family close to the action. Look below at three events you don’t want to miss this May on the Grand Strand.
Smoke on the Beach
Returning this year here in Myrtle Beach is Smoke on the Beach. This BBQ Competition Festival happens yearly, and it has not only local amateur teams but also professional ones. This event will also have other things to do and enjoy, like a car show and even a band competition.
