Myrtle Beach … Come See It for Yourself

by Sharon Eagles-McCants

familySometimes I feel like I’m preaching to the choir when it comes to talking about how special Myrtle Beach is for vacationers. I mean it’s not that often that I run into someone who has not visited the sandy shores of the east coast’s Grand Strand. Millions of vacationers have found that Myrtle Beach has become a formidable oceanfront vacation spot.

From entertaining theater shows to famous restaurants to abundant shopping, Myrtle Beach has something to offer everyone. And, of course, clean beautiful beaches have long been its drawing card. A long list of attractions and popular events keeps Myrtle Beach current and trendy. To Gen-Xers Myrtle Beach is NOT your grandmother’s beach but to us who are over the ripe old age of 50, it is and will always be the calm, soothing vacation spot our grandmother’s loved.  But, how can Myrtle Beach be so different for some, and yet, the same for others?

It’s easy. Myrtle Beach has stayed true to being a family vacation beach. And, we all know that family is the most important aspect in everyone’s life. Doesn’t matter the composition of the family … Myrtle Beach is for those who want good times for in the family. Moms, dad, kids, grandparents, sisters, brothers, aunts and uncles, and cousins … there is something for everyone.

So, on the rare occasion that I meet someone who has not visited Myrtle Beach, I will invite them to come see for themselves.
