"We have been welcoming Canadians to the Myrtle Beach area for decades and hope this promotional solution will help overcome any financial hurdles caused by the exchange rate," said Susan Phillips, director of marketing for the Myrtle Beach Area CVB. "This special Canadian discount is just one more reason to visit in the late winter and early spring seasons, which have mild weather, even more affordable accommodations and more elbow room at area attractions."

In addition to Canadian discounts from January through April, the 55th Annual Canadian-American Days Festival will also take place during this discount window, from March 12 to March 20, 2016. In commemoration of this milestone anniversary, a number of special activities and events are planned to showcase the Myrtle Beach area's Southern hospitality.
