It’s hard to believe that April is almost here, and events are happening again on the Grand Strand. Last year around this time, many events were getting canceled until further notice, not knowing when they would kick back up, but now is the time. Staying in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will allow you and your family can enjoy your vacation and be close to the fun. Let’s look below at where you can head this April to check out these three fun events.
Smoke on the Beach BBQ Competition
If you’ve never been to Smoke on the Beach BBQ competition before, then you’re in for a fun experience. This fun and exciting event is happening on April 2nd & 3rd at Historic Myrtle Beach Pavilion Park. The annual event was canceled last year, but it returns just for you and your family to come and explore the tasty treats on Friday night for a small fee, but there will be other food options as well. They are this year complying with all Covid-19 Regulations, so be sure not to forget your mask.
39th Annual Easter Egg Hunt
If you’re bringing the family down to spend your Easter
Break here in North Myrtle Beach, then you will be in for a treat. Swing on
over to McLean Park in North Myrtle Beach on Saturday, April 3rd at
10:00 am on the dot to hunt for eggs. This is an outdoor event, and they will
be following all of the Covid-19 Regulations, such as social distancing and
face masks are recommended. Several different age groups are available for the
kids, and it’s free to attend. After the egg hunt, go and meet the Easter Bunny
and take a few pictures too.
Earth Day Celebration
Another great event you can attend in April on the Grand Strand is the Earth Day Celebration at Brookgreen Gardens. Located in Murrells Inlet is where you will find this fantastic event fun for all ages. On April 24th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, the whole family will learn about native plants, and the kids can explore the many different stations to finish an Earth Day passport! This is all included with the admission to the Garden.
While many other fun things are happening in April, we wanted to share these with you. If you haven’t booked your family vacation to stay in a North Myrtle Beach vacation rental, now is the time. We look forward to seeing you and your family as you relax and enjoy your time at the Beach!
Are you headed to North Myrtle Beach for your next vacation? Nothing says vacation like spending the week at the beach soaking up the sun. When staying in one of our Oceanfront Condo rentals, having the right items in your beach bag will help make your vacation much better. Be sure to pack your beach bag with the essentials to guarantee a relaxing vacation with your family.
Beach Bag Essentials
A Beach Bag
Making sure you have the right beach bag can make all the difference for your family. Sure, you can throw all of your items into any bag, but did you know that all beach bags were not created equal. We suggest looking at the size, water and sand resistance, security and stylish when searching for your bag. We have found that even using a backpack, diaper bag or a large utility tote bag works perfect as a beach bag.
Be sure to pack a beach towel for everyone in
the family whether you will sit in the sun or play in the ocean. Having an
extra towel with you is always a good idea especially if you have little ones
with you. To make sure that each family member has their own towel, allow them
to pick out a beach towel that they like from the store. That is a good way to
keep track of whose towel belongs to who. And if you are looking for a little
more storage with your towel, you can sew one end of the towel to make pockets.
The pockets can hold a few select things such as sunscreen or sunglasses.
The sun in North Myrtle Beach can be brutal,
especially during the summer months so sunscreen is a must for any beach bag. Use
a sunscreen that is designed for your beach activities such as waterproof,
sport, high SPF, etc.). Dermatologists recommend that you use a sunscreen with
at least 30 SPF while you are enjoying the sunshine. And don’t forget to
Reapply throughout your day as we don’t want you to ruin your vacation the very
first day your here with a sunburn. If you do happen to get a little too much
sun while on vacation, then make sure you have some aloe in your bag or back in
your vacation rental.
Water-Resistant Phone Pouch
Between the water, sun and sand, the beach is
filled with many things that can damage your phone. Bringing a water-resistant
pouch to the beach can be a lifesaver for many. If you are unable to find a
water-resistant pouch before you leave for spring break, you can grab a
sandwich bag or Ziploc bag. Both of these items will keep your phone and other
electronic devices safe from the elements of the beach. If you do happen to get
some water on your phone, soak your phone in a bowl full of rice to help get
the moisture out.
One way that you can improve your tan and your
mood is by bringing a book or magazine to the beach. We understand that
bringing your children to the beach means less time to read a book, but maybe
bring a few of their books too. This way when you are ready to read a little,
have them come play in the sand near where you are or have them sit under the
umbrella and read a little bit of their own book.
Sunglasses, Hats & Shirts
Making sure to pack all three of these items are a must on any vacation you take to the beach. The sun in the south is a lot warmer than it would be up north, and so we want to make sure you are protected. Sunglasses will protect your eyes from the suns bright rays and will offer you some relief when trying to keep an eye on your little ones playing. Whether you have a floppy hot or a baseball cap, you will be happy that you brought these along with you. If you feel the kids are getting too much sun on their shoulders, have a light colored shirt to put on them to keep them safe from the sun. Be sure to pack one for each member of your family.
When you are spending the day in the sun and at the beach, you will want to stay hydrated as well. Throw a few water bottles in the cooler or bring a reusable bottle such as an insulated water bottle as they will keep your drink ice cold all day long. The sun and salt will dry you out so make sure that you have enough water to go around for everyone in your family for the whole day. If you are staying in one of our Oceanfront Condo rentals, then you will be able to go back to refill the bottles.
You may not have thought that this would be a must,
but it is whenever you go to the beach. Whether you are staying in a vacation
rental or you decided to drive your car to the beach access, sand will be all
over you when you leave the beach. So, bringing baby powder in your beach bag
will magically get the sand off of your body without irritation and leave a
nice scent too. This is perfect for everyone in the family and not just the
There are many other items that you can pack into your beach bag for your next trip to North Myrtle Beach, but these are the must have items we thought you should have with you. If you are still looking for a place to stay for spring break, then check out our Oceanfront Condo rentals today. We can’t wait to see you and your family as you enjoy the South Carolina Coast!
Spring will be here before you know it, which means it will
be more time to spend outdoors in the warm sun. While 2020 decided to throw
everyone a curveball, 2021 doesn’t have to be the same. Staying in one of our
North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will keep you and your family close to the
fun and action of the beach. Let’s look below at three reasons why you should
plan your spring break vacation today.
Warm Weather & Fewer Crowds
One of the best things about vacationing to North Myrtle
Beach during the springtime is the weather is fantastic. While it won’t be as
warm as it is compared to the summer months, you can still sit on the beach and
enjoy many things. Some of the fun things you can want are the pools and the waves;
even though they may be a little chilly, it’s nothing like snow and ice you may
have now. The crowd levels will be less, too, compared to our busier season of
the summer months, so feeling like you have the whole beach to yourselves is
just what we hope you would enjoy!
Fun in the Sun
Another excellent reason for planning your spring break vacation today is that you’ll be able to enjoy some of the great things you can do in the sun. And no, we’re not talking about the sand and sun on the beach. Some of the great things that you and your family can enjoy this spring break are the Family Kingdom, Alligator Adventure, and The Track. There are so many different options that you can choose from while staying in North Myrtle Beach that allows you and your family to enjoy time together out on the town.
Shopping has to be one of the best things about vacationing in the area during spring break. You will be able to head on over to one of the two outlet malls located on the Grand Strand to the few malls and many other fun beach shops. If you’re looking for a good deal this spring on some beautiful swimsuits or other fun beach equipment, you’ll be able to find just what you’re looking for. North Myrtle Beach also has many different areas that allow you to shop at Barefoot Landing and nearby Broadway at the Beach. The options are endless when you vacation to North Myrtle Beach any time of the year.

family can go grocery shopping once you arrive and pick up all the ingredients

you go and enjoy fishing from this pier on every vacation with us.
Fishing on the Great Open Waters
