As a native Kentuckian, it’s thrilling to see that the city of Lexington is one of four new non-stop flights to the Myrtle Beach area that Allegiant Airlines will begin offering today.

These flights will continue to open up the Grand Strand to even more visitors during the summer months of 2014 and beyond.

Non-stop service from Lexington, Ky., as well as Columbus, Ohio and Syracuse, N.Y. begins on May 29. Starting May 30, this non-stop service will grow to include Cincinnati, Ohio.

So, to all you Buckeyes, Wildcats and Orange men and women, we can’t wait for you to come and visit us here in the Myrtle Beach area. The sun is shining bright, the water is a beautiful shade of blue and summer is officially here.

See you soon!
