Myrtle Beach is growing into a very popular vacation destination and here are some main reasons for that growth. The main reason that Myrtle is so popular is that located on the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and has some of the most beautiful shorelines around. The other large reason is because of all the attractions located so close to eachother. Here are some of the main ones that drive people in.
One great attraction is the Carolina Opry. If you only see one show, this is the one! The Carolina Opry has won every major South Carolina tourism award including Most Outstanding Attraction and the prestigious Governor's Cup. Year after year The Carolina Opry is voted the Best Show by readers of the Myrtle Beach Sun News. And it's the only show that has been featured on NBC Nightly News, CNN, TNN, and USA Today, which called it "A Big Hit".
Another great site is the Family Kingdom Waterpark, which is located right on the ocean itself! You can splash your way through the "coolest" fun at the beach! Feel the thrill of speeding down a water slide or simply relax as you drift down the cool, refreshing water of a lazy river. This is an excellent place to take the kids if you just want to unwind.
One if the New Attractions that has just opened is the Hard Rock Park! It is the worlds ONLY! Rock and Roll Theme Park and has just become operational this spring! There are tons of rides and Rollercoasters and daily live shows in the Ampitheater. This is sure to be one of the great attractions of Myrtle Beach in the near future.
If you were thinking about staying in Myrtle Beach these are some of the main reasons you might stay right! Well I have recently vacationed there and had and excellent time because I found a great hotel that was located just minutes from all of these attractions and was even exactly beside the Family Kingdom Waterpark. This hotel was the Westgate Hotel and was located oceanfront right on the Grand strand. It has beautiful views of the ocean and had excellent customer service! The best part was the price at just over 100 Dollars a night you save a ton of money, on which you can use to view many of the attractions that I had mentioned.
