“Myrtle Beach has long been a beloved getaway for countless Canadians who seek a warm-weather retreat where they can easily explore our 60-miles of beaches, over 90 golf courses, 2,200-plus restaurants and year-round attractions – all while enjoying special rates. We look forward to carrying on the tradition of Can-Am Days and showering them with our Southern hospitality once again,” said Karen Riordan, MBACC and CVB President and CEO.

Among the special events occurring over Can-Am Days, the chamber and TD Bank will host a Welcome Reception on Monday, March 11, from 1 to 3 p.m. within the lobby of its visitors center at 1200 N. Oak Street in Myrtle Beach. Refreshments will be served.

On March 12, the chamber and Ripley’s Aquarium will host the Can-Am Plaza Party outside of Ripley’s Aquarium at Broadway at the Beach with music and entertainment for the entire family from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Canadians can request the CAA (Canadian Automobile Association) discount on tickets to Ripley’s Aquarium for a $2 savings.

In addition, various resorts and attractions are offering special deals and discounts for Canadians. Visit CanAmDays.com for more details.
