It may be hard to believe that one of the most popular vacation rental destinations in the United States is named after a shrub, but this is indeed the case when you're talking about Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Around 1900, a guy named FG Burroughs thinking naming the area after the plant that abundantly great here would be a good idea. The name stuck, and now Myrtle Beach is the place to go on the southern east coast if you are looking for a good time and a great choice in vacation rental homes or condos. It is situated along the Grand Strand stretch of beaches of the eastern coast of South Carolina. The area plays host to 10 million visitors a year, so the choice of accommodations has to be big. And it is. Consider a Myrtle Beach rental home for your next vacation. Added privacy and more space are reason enough, but most vacation rentals are fully furnished, with complete kitchens and comfy linens. Parking is usually easier and more private, plus you will enjoy that "home away from home" feeling – a welcome reply after a day of playing nice with all the other tourists. Better yet, go all out and get yourself a luxury rental home for your getaway. Designer decor, gorgeous beach views, hot tubs and gourmet kitchens are just some of the many amenities that you'll savor in a luxury vacation rental in Myrtle Beach.
You will not be at a loss for something to do while on vacation in Myrtle Beach. Of course, there are plenty of beaches to explore. While this is a very popular tourist destination, keep wandering and you may just stumble upon some sand less tread upon. Better yet, make some local acquaintances at one of the hundreds of eating and drinking establishments and ask them to fill you in on all the best spots to dig your toes in the sand. Locals and regulars are also great in helping you decipher the many tourist pamphlets and fliers with which you will be barraged. You want a burger? Just ask a local. Beside a decidedly laid back beach vibe, there are over 120 golf courses within a 17 square mile area that includes Conway, North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach itself. It's been called the "Golf Capital of the World", and with that many courses to choose from, they can call themselves whatever they want. After a day or two of golf, and a couple on the sand and surf, make some time to do a little shopping. With the ample supply of souvenir shops and t-shirt places, you can get everyone back home a trinket or two. Enjoy some live music at night, then head back to your rental home or condo for a peaceful night's sleep. In Myrtle Beach, it's all about good times and great memories. Get a Myrtle Beach vacation rental home, villa or condo, pack your bags and prepare for your beach getaway. Everyone's doing it, so do not be left behind.
