Trends / Spring Break

Myrtle Beach’s Grand Strand offers more than 60 miles of pristine beaches, making it one of the most popular spring break destinations in the United States for travelers on a budget. Whether you’re looking to spend a week soaking up the sun on the beach or partying it up with your friends, there’s a little something for everyone in this East Coast gem.

 

While you can’t go wrong at any end of Myrtle Beach’s extended stretch of sand, North Myrtle Beach is the perfect spot for a laidback vacation for those seeking something away from the revelry and drunken partying. While it still has its fair share of nightlife, this is the area to stay when you want the opportunity to step away from the alcohol for a bit and relax before your exams.

South Myrtle Beach is where the party is, home to popular bars like Señor Frogs and The Boathouse. Each hosts epic parties throughout the week, with Señor Frogs the most popular dance spot in the city. The Boathouse is the place to go for live music all week long, with popular local and international bands turning up the beat. One of the newer up-and-coming bars on Broadway at the Beach is The Oz, famous for its rotating design every night of the week, so you never feel like you’re in the same spot.

 

When it comes to the daytime, Myrtle Beach has plenty to offer. Surfing, wakeboarding and scuba are all popular here. You’ll also find the beaches littered with fellow spring breakers playing volleyball and soaking up the sun.

 

If you’re looking for a great spring break option but are strapped for cash, you could certainly do worse than Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
