North Myrtle Beach is part of the Grand Strand and helps make up 100 kilometres of glorious sandy shoreline. It’s a diverse vacation hot spot that sees return visitors year after year because the accommodations are affordable, the food is delicious, the people are kind, the area averages 215 sunny days per year, and sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean will leave you breathless. There are also endless water activities in this South Carolina beach town and nothing beats a room with an ocean view.

As the cooler weather descends upon us, many Canadians fly south for vacation and snowbirds pack up for a road trip to warmer climates as Myrtle Beach is home to year-round attractions. The main strip is only half an hour drive from North Myrtle Beach, which is more laid back and further removed from the crowds. You can chill for hours and relax to the sound of the waves but there are still plenty of things to do, so needless to say you will never be bored.
