Oceanfront Hotels for Kids in Myrtle Beach

  By  Ashley Daniels

Are you visiting Myrtle Beach with your family? When planning your next trip to the Grand Strand, there are plenty of choices when it comes to selecting accommodations for your stay. I have narrowed down some of my favorite Oceanfront Resorts for Families. 

From ocean views, to amazing pools, family suites and lazy rivers, there are accommodations for every family in Myrtle Beach. These resorts offer the most onsite amenities for your next family vacation. If you are traveling with multiple generations of your family, these resorts also offer extensive room options from suites to condos.
