It’s time to celebrate warmer weather with a spring break family getaway! USA Today recently named Myrtle Beach the #1 Best Spring Break Destination for Families, thanks to our family-friendly atmosphere, 60 miles of sandy beaches, and a huge list of amazing attractions that guarantee your crew will never be bored. Here are some great travel tips for the ultimate spring break vacation with the family!

Don’t Procrastinate: With kids out of school for a week or two, spring is a popular time to travel. Don’t’ wait until the last minute to book a vacation rental, or to get tickets to shows like Pirate’s Voyage or Medieval Times. Some attractions offer special deals for Spring Break; so don’t be afraid to ask!

Plan Wisely: Plane tickets are more expensive on the weekend, and traffic tends to be heavier, so plan to travel midweek if you can. Try to leave in the wee hours of the morning, so kids will sleep during the first length of the trip, and you will arrive early enough to settle in and see some of the sights.

Stay Wisely: Choose a vacation rental that offers many of the comforts of home, like a fully stocked kitchen for meal prep, and a separate bedroom for the kids so they can get a good night’s sleep. Try to stick to your regular routine as much as possible. Of course, it’s okay to let the kids stay up late at least once to ride the amusements at Family Kingdom!

Eat Wisely: Plan to eat at least one meal at your vacation rental, whether that’s breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you eat a large breakfast, pack a light lunch to eat on the go, and have dinner out at an earlier time to avoid the evening crowds. There are many great, family-friendly restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area to choose from!

Hit The Beach: Spring temperatures are typically balmy in the Myrtle Beach Area, so make a point of enjoying the beach as much as you possibly can. Dip your toes in the water, build a sandcastle, walk along the coastline, collect shells and shark’s teeth, and soak up the sun’s rays. It is a vacation, after all.
