Why is Myrtle Beach so special?
Myrtle Beach is a major tourist attraction, and luckily, has plenty of wide-open beaches for everyone to enjoy.

Travel Hacks for 2021
1. Book Early and Plan Ahead
You’ll save money.
Early booking often produces lower prices on tickets and fees. Even as little as five weeks before your vacation can give you a reduction in costs. Many budget airlines offer big discounts to set up their books for the coming year.
Look for vacation packages, such as those The Breakers Resort offers. You can get a lower accommodations rate, perks such as Britain Rewards, which can mean free tickets to your favorite attractions!
2. Look into Outdoor Activities
Just as they do at home, outdoor activities can help you gain good mental and spiritual health. Consider some of these Myrtle Beach favorites:
Myrtle Beach Segway Tours of Huntington State Park – Glide through one of the area’s most scenic wetland and wildlife preserves. Perfect for nature enthusiasts.
Guided Myrtle Beach kayak tour – Find serenity on the water with a sunrise or sunset excursion in Murrells Inlet. Local guides will show you the way.
Take a beach walk – You have 60 miles of wide beaches to explore.
3. Have Dinner Outside
Alfresco dining is proven to improve concentration, creativity, and stress reduction. And that’s before you factor in Myrtle Beach’s beautiful views and amazing restaurants, such as:
Kluck-It – Grab a mess of deliciousness for lunch, and add mozzarella sticks, too. Friendly staff and quick service. There’s a good chance you’ll fall in love.
Damon’s – Oceanfront dining, messy, delicious ribs, served in ridiculously generous portions. Prove it’s your birthday and you’ll get a free meal.
Oceanfront Bar & Grill – Fried fish on the boardwalk? Yes!
RIPTYDZ OCEANFRONT GRILLE & ROOFTOP BAR: Grab a drink and take in that amazing ocean view. Try the pork chops and Lowcountry boil.
GET THE GROUPER AT BUMMZ BEACH CAFE: Top-notch service, and how can you beat the scenery? This casual beach bar serves amazing food and drinks – try the chicken Philly, too.
4. Tips for Flying in 2021
Air travel is a challenge right now, with so many people in confined spaces. Many cities have multiple airports. Book through a secondary airport, which might have less traffic.
Check in with your airline’s app 24 hours before your flight.
Use the self-service bag drop for checked luggage.
Check requirements in Myrtle Beach before you travel. Domestic travel is open, but things can change. Consult the Myrtle Beach coronavirus page for updates.
Pack extra supplies, such as hand sanitizer and masks.
Consider a rental car when you arrive to avoid taxis and ride apps. Especially for a weeklong trip, a rental could be more cost-effective than putting wear and tear on your vehicle. Bigger companies likely will offer good deals to get the year started off right.
5. Tips for Driving to Myrtle Beach in 2021
If driving your own car, schedule an inspection and ensure service is up-to-date.
Plan your stops along the way ahead of time so you can research safety procedures to be fully prepared
Pack snacks and drinks in a cooler to avoid stops at restaurants
Map out what you’d like to do and what you’d like to see in Myrtle Beach. Check to see if these spots are open, or have restrictions in place. Also, be sure you’re comfortable with any measures they’re taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
