Plan a Myrtle Beach Vacation on a Budget10/08/2013
Contrary to popular belief, an extraordinary, fun filled seaside vacation is not financially unfeasible. Myrtle Beach has long been a popular destination for families – and for good reason. No matter what your budget or time frame is, there are endless options to help you enjoy the vacation of your dreams. We understand that vacations can quickly become a costly endeavor but Beach Colony is here to help! Use a few of our tips on how to plan a Myrtle Beach vacation on a budget and start planning your escape!
Book in Advance & Take Advantage of Specials
Booking your vacation well in advance will end up saving you tons of money. Prices inflate as demand for rooms increases and the availability decreases, so get started early. If possible, book before the new year or as early in advance as possible, before prices begin to increase. Also, be sure to check the Specials Page and take advantage of discounted rates. Popular promotions include specials that throw in free breakfast or even free days.
Consider an Off-Season Vacation
The summer months are definitely the most popular times to visit Myrtle Beach and room rates reflect that. However, there are still plenty of great opportunities to visit the beach outside of prime vacation season. The weather in the spring and fall is still warm and sunny, meaning that you can still enjoy all of the usual beach activities. There will also be fewer crowds and you will find more discounts and specials on area attractions and restaurants.
Use Your VMB Benefits Card
A great perk of staying at Beach Colony is that you are given a Vacation Member Benefits Card upon check in. This exclusive card gives you fantastic discounts at a wide variety of area attractions, shops, and restaurants. Our benefits card makes it easy for you to enjoy the area attractions and everything that Myrtle Beach has to offer while sticking to a budget.
Make Meals at Home
The thought of enjoying succulent seafood and steaks each night is tempting, but resist the urge. All of the Beach Colony accommodations include a full in-suite kitchen, stocked with everything you could possibly need to whip up a meal for the family. We provide everything from dishes and cookware to utensils and a dishwasher, making cooking a breeze. The more you eat in, the more money you’ll save in the long run. Also, what’s to complain about dining with an oceanfront view?
Enjoy Free Things to Do
Believe it or not, there are plenty of free things to do in Myrtle Beach - you just have to know where to look. There are tons of free promotions throughout the summer, like the Hot Summer Nights events at the Myrtle Beach boardwalk and the Movies Under The Stars events at the Market Common. The off-season also offers a variety of festive family friendly events that are all free to attend. And, of course, the area parks and beaches are always free!
These are just a few of the many ways to plan a Myrtle Beach vacation on a budget. Do you have any money saving secrets? Let us know what you do to stick to a financial plan while planning your vacation!
