Are you and your family looking to escape to the North Myrtle Beach area this fall? If the answer is yes, then allow us to tell you about why vacationing on the Grand Strand the best in the fall is. Staying in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will keep you and your family close to the action. Let’s look below at why the beach during the fall months is the best.

Weather

Sand, beach, family, boy, girl, man, woman, sandcastles, sand toys, water, ocean, blue sky

One of the best things about vacationing to North Myrtle Beach during the fall is the weather. While September may be a little toasty for many, in October and November, the temperature turns cooler. You may not be able to swim in the ocean in November. You can still enjoy the sun and sand on the beach. There may be a few times that you’ll experience a little rain and storms, but you’ll be able to enjoy your vacation rental.

Fewer Crowds

Another reason for vacationing in the area is that there are typically fewer crowds. This is a big thing for families with young kids as they won’t feel as overwhelmed. You’ll be able to go to a restaurant and not have a long wait compared to the summer months. Some of the stores may not all be open as they are in the summer, but you’ll feel like you’re a local. This can be a big thing for many families during the “off-season” as they love to vacation this way every year.

Enjoy your Vacation Rental

One of the best reasons for staying in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals is getting to enjoy it. With the many different options that you have to choose from, the fall months are some of the best times to visit. Bring a few of your families games with you and play them in the rental. Plan a movie night and pop up a few bags of popcorn to snack on during the movie. There are so many ways that you can enjoy your vacation rental this fall together as a family!

While there are many other reasons why you should book your fall vacation today, these are the few we wanted to share with you. If you’re ready to experience North Myrtle Beach this fall, give us a call today. We hope to see you and your family as you get to enjoy the Grand Strand this fall!

Hello spring phrase and flowers on a white background. Studio shot. Flat lay.

Spring is just around the corner, which only means that warmer temps are coming. It’s also a great time to visit North Myrtle Beach with the family. Staying in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will have you close to the fun. Let’s look below at three things you can do in the area this spring.

Barefoot Landing

If you’ve never been to Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, you are missing out on so much. It’s one of the top attractions for the area for many visitors, and we have to agree with them. You can check out live entertainment at House of Blues or take a tour at Crooked Hammock Brewery for the adults. For the kids, they have a few more fun options such as the carousel, LuLu’s Beach Arcade & Ropes Course to Alligator Adventure. Plus, you’ll be able to grab a bite to eat and do a little shopping.

North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex

Another great place to check out on your next trip this spring is the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex. If the kids need to get a little energy out of their system, the playground is where it’s at. You can also bike, walk, hike a trail or even play a little sport. They also have during the season different events that happen, so be on the lookout for what is happening there.

Beach It

The final thing you and your family can do this spring spends the day or week at the beach. Coming to North Myrtle Beach while the rest of the kids are in school can be a great way to recharge and enjoy the low crowds. Once summer comes, you’ll find that you’ll have a harder chance of getting that perfect spot on the beach as you listen to the kids play in the background without the crowds. Think of the new memories you’ll make on your trip this spring.

Why Should You #BookDirect with Seaside Vacations?

Travel planning on computer

Are you and your family planning a vacation to North Myrtle Beach this year? We need to tell you why you should #bookdirect with us if you are. Many online third-party vacation rental sites can add a 5%-20% additional fee to your reservation. We know that your vacations are significant and may limit how much you can spend each year. Seaside Vacations wants to make sure that you get the most out of your money when visiting the North Myrtle Beach area. The only way that you’ll be able to enjoy your vacation without getting hit with that unexpected fee is by booking direct today!

What You Need to Know About Booking Direct

On February 2nd, 2022, we celebrate the 5th Annual Book Direct Day, which was created to help educate vacation rental guests on the benefits of booking directly through an owner or Property Management Company vs. using a Third-Party agency such as Airbnb, HomeAway, VBRO & TripAdvisor.

While you may recognize these big-name companies and their gimmicks in helping you save money, you will soon learn that they will charge you a fee for using their website. Who wants to pay extra just to try and save a little money? Some of the expenses that you may incur when you book with an OTA can range from 5%-20% of the total cost of your vacation rental, which in turn can cost you thousands of dollars extra depending on which rental you choose.

Why You Should Book Direct with Us

From tweens to teens, the older kids will love this adventure, and it is something that they can do with their friends. Think of the memories you’ll make on this fun outing together on your next vacation.
