Welcome to Myrtle Beach


Love it or hate it, Myrtle Beach offers one all-American vacation. Enormous outlet malls, water parks and daiquiri bars compete for attention, bikini-clad teenagers play video games and eat hot dogs in smoky arcades, and Midwestern families roast like chickens on the white sand. North Myrtle Beach, actually a separate town, is slightly lower-key, with a thriving culture based on the 'shag' – a jitterbug-like dance invented here in the 1940s.

It isn't for nature lovers, but it's a rowdy good time and certainly a hit with the kiddos.
