Myrtle Beach To Conway
If you are up for a road trip, Myrtle Beach has everything you could possibly want in a sun destination.
As the cooler weather descends upon us, many Canadians will hop in their cars and drive towards a warmer climate. If you are up for a road trip, Myrtle Beach has everything you could possibly want in a sun destination. There are multiple driving routes to get you from Toronto to Myrtle Beach so it’s best to check with your friendly GPS, online routes, or old-fashioned paper maps. The drive is approximately 15 hours and depending on how adventurous you are or which sites you want to see along the way, you can drive in one day or stop overnight and drive 7.5 hours a day. Regardless which route you take, you are in for a great adventure!
For decades Myrtle Beach has shined as a great family destination. The city is located alongside the mid-Atlantic region of the Eastern United States. The accommodations are affordable, the water activities are endless (boating, scuba diving, parasailing, surfing, kayaking) and the 60 miles (100 km) of gorgeous beaches along the Atlantic Ocean are perfect for long walks, making sandcastles and searching for deserted shells. It’s no wonder it’s called the Grand Strand!
Not only is the Hampton Inn right on the beach with a great view, but it has two lazy rivers that my son absolutely loved, seven swimming pools, free parking, complimentary hot breakfasts each morning, use of sand toys and boogie boards and an extremely helpful staff that helped us choose delicious restaurants. Our favourites included E Noodles & Co. (a ten minute walk from our hotel) and Crepe Creation Café in the Market Common – a 15-minute drive. There is a Piggly Wiggly grocery store in the same outdoor mall and we stocked up our mini fridge with goodies.
Myrtle Beach’s newly redesigned $6.5 million dollar boardwalk stretching 1.2 miles and an exhilarating ride on the famous SkyWheel is a must. The SkyWheel, one of the highest Ferris wheels in North America, boasts 42 individual gondolas and it has more than a million red, white and blue LED lights twinkling in the night sky. My son loved snapping pictures from the very top!
After our adventures in Conway we were ready to go back to the Hampton Inn for a few more fun filled days at this Grand beach location.
boat rides, marsh walks and more!
