4 Great Reasons to Book Your Grand Strand Vacation Early

While temperatures may be cooling throughout the nation, the holiday season is drawing near and winter seems to be right around the corner, it’s never too early to start looking ahead and planning your spring and summer getaways on the Grand Strand. After all, in addition to putting some relaxing, sun-soaked days and warm, beachy breezes into your near future (thinking of which can be a huge help in getting you through those ice- and snow-filled stretches of the year’s shortest days), getting your vacation plans squared away early can also bring a range of added benefits.

Consider these four great reasons to book your spring and summer getaways early at The Strand Resort on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront:

Get the perfect accommodations: When searching for the ideal place to stay during your beach vacation, the best hotels and resorts are always in the highest demand — making them especially hard to land if you wait until late in the game to book. But when you book early, you can get not only your choice of resort, but also your pick of accommodation options before other vacationers book them all up. At The Strand Resort, our resort offers a location that’s right on the water and within easy reach of all the Grand Strand’s top attractions. And our wide range of comfortable accommodation options includes everything from ground-floor rooms right by the pool to oceanfront 4-bedroom condos.

Snuff out the stress: When you book your Grand Strand vacation well in advance, not only do you eliminate the stresses of last-minute room searches, activity planning and the like, but you can also start setting (and even booking) your itinerary before any shortages might present themselves. The top shows and most popular activities in the Myrtle Beach area can sell out and book up quickly during the peak seasons, but you can be the early bird who’s already scored all the worms. Snag advance tickets to the area’s top performances, make reservations at the most in-demand restaurants, book the perfect time slots for your activities of choice — it’s all yours for the choosing when you do it early.

Be a master gift-giver: Looking to surprise your family with an exciting gift that everyone is sure to love? Book your Myrtle Beach vacation now, and you can warm up the holidays with the promise of a trip to the Grand Strand! Few presents can offer the seasons-spanning anticipation of a future family getaway, and the ample advance notice will give everyone joining the trip something to look forward to, plus plenty of time to scope out their activities of choice.

Steal the deals: For those who plan their vacations at The Strand Resort early, the benefits also extend to the bank account. In addition to offering discounts for military veterans, AAA and AARP members, and more, The Strand offers a number of incentives for early bookings. Added bonuses can include perks like a percentage off the cost of your stay, extra nights, and free food and activity vouchers. Be sure to check out our Specials page to see what kinds of deals and perks are up for grabs when you book.

Start planning (and booking) your vacation at The Strand Resort now, and you can look forward to a great Grand Strand getaway right on the oceanfront all fall and winter long. With our wide range of comfortable accommodations and long list of fun and luxurious amenities, you’re sure to find some relaxation and fun in the South Carolina sun.
