How Dining in Can Save You Money

Suite with a KitchenWhile many enjoy splurging on going out to eat during vacation, it can get expensive if you do it for every meal.

If you book a unit that has a kitchen in it, you can definitely save a lot of money by dining in once, twice, or more!

Check out these example comparisons of how you can save money by dining in during your vacation in Myrtle Beach for a family of four:

Lunch Dining Out:

  • Make it a combo by adding chips and a soda for $3 each

  • Total of $36 plus tax for about $40

Lunch Dining In:

  • Two large loaves of French bread $3

  • Lunch meat $4

  • Cheese slices $3

  • Lettuce $2

  • Tomato $1

  • Mayo $2
