Paradise Adventures has three great locations in North Myrtle Beach, each with a different course and theme. Mutiny Bay is a 36-hole, all outdoor adventure. It’s easy to spot due to its enormous pirate ship that can be seen along Highway 17. A great pirate battle breaks out every 30 minutes. Cancun Lagoon is next and features a huge replica of an ancient Mayan pyramid. Playing this air-conditioned indoor/outdoor course is a great way to cool off while having fun! If you’re looking for a great place to visit on a rainy day, Molten Mountain has a course indoors. You can also play outdoors next to their 50-foot active volcano which erupts every 30 minutes.

Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf

Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf has been a staple in North Myrtle Beach since 1955. Here you’ll find two courses, each perfect for a date night or evening with the kids. The first is the Lost Treasure Golf Course which begins with a train ride to the first hole at the top of a mountain. As you play your way down the mountain, you’ll hear the story of Duffer A. Hacker, a man who led an expedition to search for gold and diamond mines. Players can attempt to discover prehistoric bones, statues, and hidden treasure during their game.
The second course is the Dinosaur Adventure Course, which features an 85-foot long steamship, waterfalls, streams, dinosaurs, a hot air balloon, and more! Follow Professor Hacker’s adventure on a mysterious island that contains dinosaurs. You’ll love exploring the lost world while playing through the course.

Hawaiian Rumble Golf & Batting Cages

For a taste of Hawaii in North Myrtle Beach, stop by Hawaiian Rumble Golf & Batting Cages. The one-of-a-kind landscaping lends to a unique mini-golfing experience. Enjoy the sounds of birds while playing the 18-hole course, or step out to the back deck to feed to resident turtles! The course is also home to the United States ProMiniGolf Association that holds the Crocodile Rocks Master’s, a national competition.

Mayday Golf

Mayday Golf has two courses, each contributes to an ongoing story. The first, Mayday Mountain, puts players at the site of a plane crash. Players must make their way through the tropical island to rescue. It’s an 18-hole course that is bound to challenge!
The second course is Rescue Falls, which features a real Huey rescue helicopter. The brave players are going to be rescued; they just have to make their way through 18 more holes. You’ll be taken past the Falls, a waterfall that tends to catch visitors off-guard.

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!

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.
