Myrtle Beach Tourism

Visit Myrtle Beach - Best of Myrtle Beach

A beach town along the East Coast seldom misses the radar of college students looking for some spring break debauchery, but that’s not all Myrtle Beach is about. Families too like to vacation here, bask in the sun, walk along the boardwalk and sight-see- quite opposite to what spring breakers would do actually. Playing host to two different types of vacationers, Myrtle Beach is one of the best destinations if you primarily just want to relax and take a step back as life passes by you.

Apart from the vast expanses of the sun, sand, water and everything else in between, there’s more to Myrtle Beach. In addition to the umpteen number of family theme parks, the city also has its fair share of museums and heritage that is most definitely worth seeing.
