Re: Myrtle Beach
I would suggest looking into some of the beaches around Myrtle such as Surfside and Garden City Beaches which are about 10 miles south of Myrtle. We have vacationed at Surfside several times, it's more of a family beach, not too crowded, and you can still go to Myrtle Beach area for the nightlife, shows, etc. Myrtle Beach in the summer is just too crowded to enjoy yourself with a family IMO...
