Myrtle Beach Lodging Local Area About Us

Myrtle Beach is #1 !

myrtle beach vacation In addition to its year-round attractions, Myrtle Beach is known for its seasonal events--opportunities for both tourists and natives to enjoy the area, its culture, and its family-like atmosphere.

In fact, you may want to plan your vacation to coincide with one or several of Myrtle Beach's annual events. The Southeast Tourism Society, a non-profit group designed to promote travel to and within the southeastern states, has recognized Myrtle Beach for hosting some of the region's best events.

The city's Sun Fun Festival, which has been bringing joy to the community for more than a half-century, was named one of the Southeast Tourism Society's Top 20 events for May, 2002. The prestigious list is passed along to more than 400 newspapers, magazines, radio stations, TV stations, and AAA chapters in the U.S. and Canada. The information also appears on a number of web sites viewed by cyber-surfers from around the world.

The event is also characterized by beach games, sandcastle building competitions, and other family-oriented activities. In addition, you can enjoy beach volleyball, catamaran races, and a 10K run. If you have an interest in browsing through beautiful homes, enjoy a visit to the Friends of the Art Museum Tour of Homes. The tour will take you through a half-dozen of Myrtle Beach's finest residences.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum. A spectacular event for those who enjoy taking a step back in time is the Renaissance Faire, where you can watch chivalrous knights, intimidating dragons, and entertaining fairies in a Medieval setting. The event also features live theater, music, and a scrumptious medieval feast. It's a pleasant escape from the pressures and demands of 21st century life. These events represent only a small sampling of the seasonal entertainment available in Myrtle Beach, which offers fun for families, couples, and singles every month of the year.

It's the kind of place you can never grow tired of, given the incredible number of activities the city offers. Think of it as the "fun sun city" of the Southeast.
