This Summer, we packed up a 2013 Mazda 5 and headed to one of our favorite destinations - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! We vacationed on its beautiful beaches in 2011 and had been dreaming of returning. In fact, as soon as our family vacation was over in 2012 - Joey asked if we could head to Myrtle Beach.
As a mother, one of my biggest concerns when planning our family vacations is finding a location that is family-friendly. I want the kids to enjoy themselves and for me to feel comfortable with them being there. We have found that Myrtle Beach is a great fit for our family and we want to share some of our favorite attractions with you! Note that for some of the locations listed below - you will need to make reservations.
I hope the below list of attractions, resorts and restaurants help you to better plan your Myrtle Beach vacation!
