Today is National Plan for Vacation Day, a day established by the US Travel Association to encourage American workers to plan ahead in order to make the most of the vacation days they earn by travelling. One way to prepare for vacations in years to come is by finding the second home of your dreams in your favorite destination. Imagine spending time-off annually in the same special place, a tradition to look forward to throughout the year, and memories that you will cherish and grow with each trip.
Your home away from home should foster a sense of personal relaxation and sanctuary. After all, a vacation is meant to be an escape from the busyness of everyday life. For you, this could mean turning off your phone and relaxing by the pool, going out for a fishing expedition in new waters, learning the history and culture of the area you're visiting, playing a round of 18 holes on a challenging golf course, or becoming a true tourist by exploring the latest sights & attractions. Knowing how you like to unwind is key to discovering your ideal vacation home. Along the Grand Strand, there is truly something for everyone and every lifestyle. Let's explore a few of the cities here to find the location that best suits your vacation style.
The low-key, laidback atmosphere of Pawleys Island allows you to slow down and take a step back to fall into the easy rhythm of island living. Our community's distinct character and lowcountry charm have made it a refreshing location for new visitors and a traditional spot for generations every summer. The beautiful natural amenities, perfectly manicured golf courses, and locally owned shops and restaurants immediately make you feel at home here. From resorts like Litchfield by the Sea to the private community of DeBordieu Colony, you will find a like-minded sense of peace throughout Pawleys Island.
Murrells Inlet is the fisher's paradise. Whether you want to fish along the Garden City seashore, board a boat with an experienced captain to deeper waters, camp out at Huntington Beach State Park, admire the preservation of wildlife and artwork at Brookgreen Gardens, or dine on the specialities of the "seafood capital of South Carolina", this quaint town will capture your heart as soon as you experience the mezmerizing marsh views.
If activity, experiences, and adventure are your top priorities on vacation, Myrtle Beach will keep you on the move. In addition to the gorgeous Atlantic oceanfront, you will find entertainment hubs like The Market Common, Broadway at the Beach, and Barefoot Landing which offer dining, shopping, shows, and more.
