4 Reasons the Grand Strand Is a Great Option for Spring Break

Each year, spring break presents the perfect opportunity to ditch the winter doldrums and celebrate the welcome return of greener scenery, warmer weather and livelier wildlife. And it’s hard to imagine a more appropriate way to celebrate these things than with a visit to the beach - especially if that beach sits along the Atlantic Ocean’s coastline in one of America’s favorite family vacation destinations: Myrtle Beach. So, if you’re looking to get your spring off to an unforgettable start, consider these four reasons to plan a spring break vacation on the Grand Strand at Myrtle Beach’s The Strand Resort:

Amazing attractions: Some of Myrtle Beach’s most popular family attractions emerge from their winter hibernation in the spring, among them Family Kingdom Amusement Park, which kicks off its 2018 season on March 24; Wild Water & Wheels, which opens on May 25; and Myrtle Waves and Splashes water parks, both of which splash into the 2018 season on the last weekend in May. For those looking to get away from it all, the Grand Strand also offers several places to experience nature in its full splendor, including Brookgreen Gardens and Myrtle Beach State Park. Plus, The Strand Resort puts guests just steps away from a stunning stretch of coastline within the area’s 60 miles of beautiful beaches.

Lighter crowds: Vacationers who head to Myrtle Beach in the spring get to enjoy the same beautiful beaches and great attractions as those who come at the summer season’s peak, but with much smaller crowds. So you and your family will be able to catch a show (or visit your choice from a long list of other attractions) without enduring long lines, catch some rays in the sand without bumping into other beachgoers, and dine at the area’s top restaurants without the waits - and often without having to bother with reservations.

Wonderful weather: As the season marked by snow, cold weather and lengthy stretches of time spent indoors comes to an end, the time for getting outdoors and enjoying the Carolina coast’s bright sunshine and warm temperatures has officially arrived. While regions to the north are still thawing out, Myrtle Beach’s average temperatures climb into the mid 50s in March, the low 60s in April and the low 70s in May - all while the landscape is in full bloom and recreational opportunities abound.

Great rates: Guests who act fast and book their spring break trips early at The Strand Resort get to enjoy a number of advantages - including a wider range of available room choices, a chance to put something exciting on the calendar to look forward to all winter long, and some serious savings on accommodations. For example, with our It’s Time to Vacation deal, guests get a 25% discount on their lodging plus two free breakfasts on each day of their stay. Our Free Spring Nights deal gives you one free added night when you book two, plus a free hot breakfast daily. And Our Advance Purchase deal (which must be booked at least 14 days prior to a stay) also offers added discounts. Other programs like our Bed and Breakfast Package, our Sunday Super Saver deal, and standing discounts for AAA and the AARP members, as well as active-duty military/veterans, offer more opportunities to save big.
