We've always known that our little patch of paradise is one in a million.

It's even more rewarding when a million others feel the same.

The Myrtle Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau has surpassed one million "likes" on its official Facebook page. Don't worry, we're not going to reference Sally Field!

But we are going to say thank you to our fans in a big way.

We're kicking off a year of appreciation with the Million Dollar Beach House Vacation Getaway. That's right, we're offering our fans the chance to win a week-long stay in a million dollar beach house along our gorgeous shores!

Entries can be submitted via the Visit Myrtle Beach Facebook page now through Aug. 30, 2013. Then, the lucky winner will be chosen to experience a luxurious vacation worthy of a movie star or professional athlete.

Over the next 12 months, we'll also be having monthly trip giveaways through a campaign that encourages all of you to think back on vacation highlights of the past. Your treasured memory could be of snagging that large fish, kayaking during a glorious sunrise or experiencing a romantic getaway with that special someone.

Whatever you vacation highlight, we're asking you to share them with us for a chance to win monthly trips and prizes.

This is just our way of showing our appreciation for all the support you've shown us over the years. We're one million fans strong, and we can't wait to get to the next million.

We'll be seeing you along the Grand Strand.
