Top 10 Reasons to Book Your Winter Getaway

The groundhog saw his shadow this February, meaning we have to put up with six more weeks of winter. But here in Myrtle Beach, we experience mild weather year round so that forecast prediction doesn’t slow us down from enjoying all the perks of the offseason.

Here are 10 reasons why you shouldn’t hesitate and book your winter getaway today:

10. Plenty of tee times available and low rates. That’s right – less crowds means more open availability for tee times at the best prices so you can maximize your play time and save while you’re in town. At Marina Inn, we’re right around the corner from the gorgeous Grande Dunes golf course.
