With only a few more weeks left of school, it’s time to start planning that summer family vacation! And what better place to take the kids than sunny Myrtle Beach?

Myrtle Beach was recently named one of USA Today’s Top Ten Best Kid-Friendly Destinations thanks to a reader’s poll, nabbing the #3 spot! “Affordable and family-friendly, Myrtle Beach has something for all ages: beach, boardwalk, mini golf (plus real golf for dad), water parks and kid-centric museums,” says USA Today. “A complete family destination for all ages!”

And they’re not the only ones singing the praises of the Myrtle Beach area. Last year, to celebrate the re-launch of Which Way USA (a state-by-state adventure through the United States), Highlights Magazine polled kids who ranked Myrtle Beach #3 on their Top Ten List of Most Desired Vacation Destinations.

This past March, Family Fun Magazine named Myrtle Beach in their Top 10 list of Tourist Towns in the USA, as part of their third annual Travel Awards. The winning locations represent the best family-friendly vacation spots nationwide as chosen by more than 2,000 families across the country. And Huntington Beach State Park, minutes south of Myrtle Beach, was also recognized as one of the Top 10 State Parks in the country.

With all these accolades and with so much to see and do on the Grand Strand how can you resist? Your kids will be so excited for the trip, you will surely hear them saying, “Are we there yet?” the entire drive!

Pack away those winter boots and slip on some flip-flops — we’ll see you soon! And visit our blog next week to learn about our Top 10 Tips for Visiting the Beach with Kids!
