How to Get the Best Savings in Myrtle Beach While Avoiding the Crowds

Most people tend to splurge their savings when it comes to vacations but this summer, get more for your money by planning with these tips in mind.

Plan Your Trip Before/After the Summer Rush

One way to miss the crowds is visiting the first two weeks of June or the last two weeks of August. At this point in June, Memorial Day Weekend traffic has cleared out and in August this is the last chance before the rush of Labor Day Weekend.

By choosing to visit Myrtle Beach in the middle of the week, (rather than weekends), you’ll find cheaper rates and fewer crowds! Plan to visit between Sunday and Thursday so you can skip the crowds who visit on the weekends.

Eat Locally

When searching for that perfect spot to grab lunch or dinner, plan to visit local restaurants rather than the chains that tend to be more crowded. Some great local options include: Sea Captain’s House, Croissants, and Soho are all near the beach and restaurants along the Marshwalk offer fresh seafood and views of the inlet! There are also plenty of yummy options close to The Marina Inn: Anchor Café, Blueberry Café, Ultimate California Game Zone, Ducatis Pizzeria, and River City Café.

If you feel like staying onsite, you can enjoy a meal at our award-winning restaurant, WaterScapes, with a picture-perfect sunset backdrop. Plus take advantage of our “Kids Eat Free” program – where kids eat free all summer long!

Beaches

As a guest at Marina Inn, a private beach access is available and travel is covered with a complimentary shuttle. Not only do you not have to worry about paying for parking, but you don’t have to haul around a chair or cooler. Chairs, umbrellas, and towels are waiting for you and a snack shack is onsite with food and beverages available for purchase. You can enjoy the natural landscape of the beach free from high rise hotels and noisy attractions. Our private beach allows you to reach ultimate relaxation with all the convenient amenities.

Skip the Beach!

In the chance you see some rainy weather or just feel like staying out of the sun for the day, head to the Market Common for movies, lunch, and great shopping. The local mall and outlet shops will likely be crowded with tourists coming off the beach.

Stone Theaters in Market Common has special deals every week! Discount Tuesdays allow you to receive $5 tickets and $5 popcorn and soda specials. If you feel like catching an early show later in the week, they offer $5 tickets for the first showing of any movie on Sundays! There are fewer crowds at the theater when you go early and the variety of restaurants nearby allow you to easily grab a quick lunch or ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery in Market Common after the movie.

Kids Attractions

There are plenty of activities the kids will enjoy when you beat the heat and skip the beach. WonderWorks is a quirky funhouse filled with puzzles and games to keep your family entertained all day! The Hollywood Wax Museum is also a great way to spend some time before lunch or dinner. Or take a trip under the sea at Ripley’s Aquarium. All three attractions are located around Broadway at the Beach – which is only a short drive from Marina Inn. And there are plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby to choose from.

Summer Special Package
