Get the most out of Myrtle Beach at the local resort with the most to do (or close). The newly renovated Springmaid Beach Resort, slated to be a DoubleTree by Hilton by June 2016, resides on 27 acres, with a quarter mile of beach and 1,068-foot pier. Everything here is super-sized, and that goes for the fun, too. Between the two lazy rivers, six pools and 18 holes of mini golf, you’ll barely think to set foot beyond the action-packed property’s bounds.
But something even bigger awaits outside: the Grand Strand, South Carolina’s surrounding 60-mile shoreline. It’s largely framed by a boardwalk and dotted with theme parks, restaurants and bars, promising beachy amusement on a whole new scale. Give surfing a try, hop aboard a swashbuckling pirate cruise, or watch the racecars at the Myrtle Beach Speedway. The sky’s the limit, so use Springmaid as your springboard, and see how far you can take your trip.
Good to know
Please note that a resort fee of $17.64 per room, per night is payable directly to the hotel. The resort fee includes parking; Wi-Fi; access to the indoor and outdoor pools, lazy rivers and inner tube access; grounds maintenance; access to the Springmaid Pier; on-site security; local, long-distance and 800 phone calls; fitness and business center access; concierge services; complimentary miniature golf; in-room bottled water; discounted fishing passes and rod rentals; and a 20% discount on beach rentals from the gift shop.
The accommodations at Springmaid number nearly 500, each an ocean-view abode in fresh colors and with tasteful furnishings and artwork. Each comes with its own private balcony, as well as a generous, full-size refrigerator and 32-in. flat-screen HDTV.
Springmaid is home to two eateries, convenient complements to the buzzing restaurant-and-bar scene beyond the property’s borders. Marlin’s Buffet is best known for its omelets, and BARnacles on Springmaid Pier, its fresh seafood; there’s also a seasonal pool bar, with fruity drinks to sip while you sunbathe.
The Grand Strand is a sprawling stretch of beach in South Carolina’s southeast, rich in boardwalk bars and boating and water-sporting operators. Hit up the Myrtle Beach Speedway for a race or the Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show to chow down on barbecue while watching pirates duke it out to the hits of Dolly Parton. (Yes, it’s a thing.) But don’t forget you’ve also got a sprawling resort to call your own, including 18 holes of mini golf, a quarter mile of beach and a fishing pier.
