  By  Ashley Daniels

Beach time is family time, which is especially important when you’re on vacation. So I’ve pieced together a roundup of some of the best family-friendly hotels in North Myrtle Beach, just a few miles north of downtown Myrtle Beach, for you and your family to take in the fun and make unforgettable memories!

The Caribbean-themed pool complex of North Beach is screaming with fun, relaxation, and excitement. Located on a 7.5-acre island between the Atlantic Ocean and Whitepoint Swash, North Beach Resort & Villas is surrounded by the 2.5-acre pool complex that features swimming pools, an outdoor pool escape with private cabanas, swim-up pool bar, and lazy river. Treat yourself to the property’s award-winning steakhouse, 21 Main, or grab a bite to eat at the poolside bar and grill and the all-new North Beach Pizza Co.

Take in the views at Avista in North Myrtle Beach and breathe out a sigh of relief that the kiddos will be oh-so-happy here. The oceanfront resort offers water features outdoors – two pools, 1 lazy river, a kiddie pool, and two hot tubs – and indoors, where there is a climate-controlled pool, lazy river, and hot tub. Take advantage of a special treat at Avisita for younger guests: the seasonal kids’ activities held over the warmer months, which include hula hoop contests, rubber duck races, slime making, seashell hunts, movie nights on the deck, a night crab hunt, sand castle contests, and much more.

This oceanfront resort is uniquely located at the Cherry Grove Pier, a landmark here on the Grand Strand for fishing fun since the early 1950s that weathered quite a few hurricanes over the years, was lengthened and remodeled, and today stands as the only privately owned pier in the area with a two-story observation deck. Prince Resort boasts two towers laid out with modern condos and luxury amenities that include family-friendly swimming pools, a mushroom waterfall kiddie pool, rooftop pool, lazy river, and hot tubs. After a long day of play, the family will love gathering to eat at 3500 Ocean Grill just steps from the sand.
