The sun, the sand, a drink in your hand. Ah yes, the ideal vision of paradise and carefree living everyone dreams of. A laid back lifestyle that makes you feel like you are on vacation everyday isn’t as far out of reach as you think. Here are the top 5 reasons you NEED to be in Myrtle Beach:

1. The Beach- with over 60 miles of beautiful white sand beaches you will never miss a ray of sunshine. Pack a picnic or enjoy a romantic meal at one of the many oceanfront restaurants. Plan a day trip fishing from one of the piers, parasail, take the family on a boat ride, whatever you do there is something for everyone. Best of all, its free! Pack up the kids, bring some beach toys, boogie boards and you’ve got a day of relaxation and soaking up the Southern sun and gorgeous scenery.

2. Housing Market- Myrtle Beach real estate is HOT! and with property taxes at a low 4-6% owning property is more attainable than you may think! If Myrtle Beach is a popular travel destination for your family, you can buy a vacation home for your getaways and rent it out when you aren’t using it. Its a great way to invest your money by having other vacationers help pay off your mortgage while you still get to enjoy the luxury of a second home!

3. Golf- If you are a golfer then you are no stranger to Myrtle Beach and its championship golf courses, among the best in the country. With over 100 courses to choose from, your golf trip will be sure to please everyone in your group no matter their skill level. Don’t worry little ones we won’t forget about you, as there are an abundance of mini golf courses along the Strand in almost every theme imaginable to keep you entertained!

4.The Entertainment- Myrtle Beach has something for everyone, young and young at heart. How about a scenic helicopter ride over the Atlantic ocean or renting golf carts and cruising the boulevard? Maybe shopping is your thing? In that case, take a day to browse one of the two huge Tanger Outlet shopping centers or go to Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach for some great shops and cuisine right on the waterway. Catch one of the exciting live dinner shows such as Pirates Voyage and Medieval Times which will be sure to leave not only your kids mesmerized but the adults as well! There are shows happening nightly at Alabama Theater, Palace Theater and Legends that you will not want to miss!

5. The Food- Let me tell you there are so many places to eat in the Grand Strand you will never have to eat at the same place twice! From laid back and casual there is almost every fast food chain you can think of, to fine dining and some of the best seafood buffets around there is something for every member of the family. Broadway at the Beach has some great restaurants such as Margaritaville and Señor Frogs that entertain the whole family and enhance the fun laid-back style that is Myrtle Beach. Make sure to check out Market Common, an up and coming community with fabulous restaurants and shops. Don’t forget here at the beach we have Happy Hour which discounts drinks and food daily! Take advantage of the many restaurants that do HH, especially with a big family you can save some money and still have a nice meal out.
