Hi......looking for advice? We haven't travelled to Myrtle before. We are recovering Disneyworld addicts, but are looking for a change. We want a nice beach, fun boardwalk to wander and a few good restaurant. I will be travelling with my DH and DS and his best friend (both will have completed second year of U). We have no idea where to stay and what to look for. They are fine with a murphy bed or sofa bed. Does anyone have any suggestions? North, central, etc its all a foreign language. We will be driving from Ontario, and want ocean view! Thanks for all your input.

We always stay in the south end of Myrtle Beach at Compass Cove.

Check my link in my Signature for vacation pictures.

Where in Ontario?

My family loves Disney, but Myrtle Beach is our "every year" vacation spot. I can't help you with a specific hotel choice because we don't stay directly on the beach, but I will say that you made a great choice in choosing MB. If you enjoy Disney, I would assume that you enjoy vacations that allow you to get out and do a few things. Myrtle Beach has a whole lot more to offer than just a beach. The restaurant choices are great, Broadway at the Beach is good, golf, putt putt, shopping and anything else that you may want to do. Then you still have the choice of just hanging out enjoying the ocean. Welcome to the board.

Hey Dizney... Welcome to MB... Hope you really like it... I'm Wally, Patrish's other half... Pass along a name and we'll know what to call you... Noprth Myrtle Beach generally has wider beaches but less to do... Beaches in Myrtle are quite adequate. Garden City beaches tend to get a bit narrow... Check out the tower at Myrtle Beach Resort ... They are mostly privately owned condos but some have enjoyed them... Maybe you can check the trip reports and find something on there. A few mistakenly were erased this summer but there should be a few to read through... MB is a driving town. Drive to whatever and then back to your hotel... The skywheel and boardwalk are one good evenings adventure. Broadway at the beach is another and Market Common can be yet another. I would schedule a day for Brookgreen gardens. the largest collection of outdoor sculpture in the USA. Lots of flowers this time of year...You'll love it... and Welcome! Do a meet up while you're here and you'll get lots of other ideas....

We are really looking forward to it. We are planning for the first week in June. I'm leaning to NMB

If you answered Don about where you live in Ontario I missed it. We too are from Ontario. Port Elgin.

We have been North Myrtle Beachers for many many years and we love it. We normally travel with our family in July and then sometimes are fortunate enough to make a trip back in the fall. During those fall trips we try to move around the area a bit. We have have stayed in almost every area of Myrtle Beach and NMB always draws us back. You have plenty of time before next June to plan and we would love to help you out. I would suggest picking your accommodations around the first of the year to ensure you get to stay where you want to stay and I am certain we can keep your days busy during your stay :lol:

Deanna, this is off topic but I noticed on a Facebook page pics of your new grand baby. Congratulations!!! The best job in the world!! We are not friends on Facebook so please post some pictures here. You have many friends on this board and I am sure they would enjoy them as much as I will :)
