Travel Tips

If you're planning a vacation to Myrtle Beach, we're here to help you find the perfect vacation rental and plan safe activities to doo while you're here so that you can travel responsibly.

Life was spinning along just fine before March, 2020. Myrtle Beach reigned supreme as a premier drive-to destination in the southeast, with happy vacationers busy booking their next trips.

Then the earth just spun right off its axis. In the months since Covid-19 changed the way we live our lives, a few things have become clear.

First, we’re all sick of staying home. Our kids are sick of staying home. Our pets are particularly sick of us being home. We’re itching to start moving around again and we need a vacation! But we want a destination we can drive to. Some of us are just not ready to fly yet, so we are grateful that Myrtle Beach is so easy to get to by car.

Second, we’re concerned for our safety. We wear our masks, we wash our hands, we keep our distance and we want everyone around us to do the same.

Third, we want a return to some form of normalcy. We want to go shopping, to eat in a restaurant, to mingle among other humans, even if from a distance.

A Drive-To Destination is the Answer


Myrtle Beach is an easy drive away from many locations along the East Coast. And while some states and municipalities have simply thrown open their doors for business, Myrtle Beach has chosen a safer, more measured approach. 

Vacation Rentals are the Safest Option


A private vacation rental is the perfect safety double whammy when visiting your favorite drive-to destination.


First, since you’re traveling with just your own “quaranteam,” you have full control over who comes into or out of your property. No need to spend time in a crowded lobby or other common area with hundreds of other guests.

Second, every one of our vacation rentals is disinfected and sanitized according to EPA-approved cleaning products prior to your arrival. You can feel totally confident that you’re staying safe and healthy with us.

Now, doesn’t that put your mind at ease?  

Tips for Your Myrtle Beach Vacation

  • Stay up to date on what's happening in Myrtle Beach while you're planning your activities. This will help you plan accordingly and also be sure you're making the most of your time on vacation. 
  • Use our packing guide to help plan and consider bringing your own paper products, Lysol wipes, and hand sanitizer to ease the load on local stores that may still be struggling to restock.
  • If you'll be renting items like beach chairs, umbrellas, baby equipment, bikes, kayaks, etc., reserve those ahead of time. 
  • Check the local weather a few days from your vacation so you can be prepared.

Public beach accesses are open.

Indoor dining at most area restaurants is now open, with enhanced cleaning protocols. Tables are spaced 6-8’ apart. And don't forget you can still order take out and enjoy it in the safety of your vacation rental, or outside at the beach or a nearby park. Take out will be a great option this summer if restaurants are too crowded. 

Your favorite Myrtle Beach stores and shops are open, and you’ll have more space to browse.
