Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resorts

Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resorts
Book a stay at an oceanfront resort in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and be lulled to sleep by the rhythmic sound of the waves. Wake in the morning to the refreshing scent of the salt air, take a deep breath and set out to hike on the 60-mile stretch of soft, white sand beach, aptly named the Grand Strand. There is almost no better workout for body or soul than a barefoot hike on a beach.
