Description

While planning your next vacation, consider bringing the whole family to the number one family beach in America--Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. You'd think the sprawling white sand beaches would be enough to satisfy any visitors, but Myrtle Beach offers so much more. Play outdoors at the beach, at a water park or at a golf course, and cool off at a quirky restaurant or mall. And if those options don't wear you out by nightfall, Myrtle Beach has great live entertainment and a blazing nightlife.

I first visited Myrtle Beach when I was 13 and had the time of my life! I went back later as an adult and found the scene to be a little on the seedy side. Having said that, it's important to note that we travel on a small budget, which limits the part of Myrtle Beach we could afford to frequent. Even so, it's still an interesting place and a good location to observe the wide range of people who show up every summer.
