Travel Deals: Myrtle Beach

I’ve never been to Myrtle Beach, the only Myrtle memories I have are being jealous of the kids headed to South Carolina in a loaded up mini-van with their families during March Break – I went to camp, it was less cool. Since then Myrtle Beach has been on my American cities bucket list, residual effects of my pre-teen fomo.

With the dollar sitting in a less than favourable position a lot of people are cancelling bachelorette trips, family vacations, and long weekend adventures to the U.S. $0.70 on the dollar is just a bit much for most people; fortunately for us Northerners the lovely people in Myrtle Beach don’t want you to have to cancel your winter break! From now until April 30, hotels, attractions, and restaurants will be offering major discounts to Canadians willing to flash their pretty passports as proof of citizenship.

The local chamber of commerce hopes that the discounts will attract Canadians to the annual Can-Am Days Festival, where Myrtle Beach spends a week, “rolling out the red carpet to our neighbours from the north.” And here I thought all Americans just thought we were crazy maple syrup guzzling socialists, turns out at least one state kind of digs us.

If you’re not sure what to do in Myrtle Beach check out this Trip Advisor top ten list and start making plans now. Personally I think a walk along the Oceanfront Promenade and Boardwalk followed by a pint at New South Brewing sounds like a good way to spend a February day.

This year, instead of spending family day with Netflix and a pizza escape to the beach and come back with stories to tell.
