How to Save on a Myrtle Beach Vacation
Planning a family vacation to please everyone can quickly morph into a costly endeavor – but it doesn’t have to break the bank! There are plenty of ways to find the perfect accommodation near the ocean and pack your itinerary with family fun and adventure while sticking to a budget. Take some of our tips for saving on a Myrtle Beach vacation and put those pesky credit cards away:
Take advantage of spectacular savings
Captain’s Quarters Resort offers a wide array of spectacular savings throughout the year, making it easy to find the perfect accommodation on a budget. Specials vary by season but often include discounted rates throughout the week and free nights specials that make it easy to extend your stay. Captain’s Quarters also offers package deals that include games at the on-site bowling alley and even breakfast. To get the best rates, book your stay early and consider room size and room location. Skip the oceanfront location for an ocean view or interior room for even more savings. How much are you really in the room, anyway?
Put that in-room kitchen to use
Many of the suites at Captain’s Quarters Resort offer a full or efficiency kitchen, making mealtime a breeze. The rooms offer a small fridge, coffee maker, and microwave while the kitchens in efficiencies and suites often offer a full fridge, full oven and stovetop, and any cookware or utensil that you could need. Eating in the room can help you save big on dining expenses. Even just cutting back on off-site breakfasts and lunches can make a huge difference on the overall budget. Stock up on cereal, sandwiches, and snacks and save your splurges for sparse dinners out.
Fill your itinerary with free local events
The Myrtle Beach area offers a wide range of exciting local events, many of which are offered completely free of charge! For an outdoor event, head north to the bustling Boardwalk area to check out the family friendly “Hot Summer Nights” promotion which provides free events throughout the week including a festive kids’ carnival on Mondays and free seaside concerts other nights during the week. Other free local events include dive-in movies at Myrtle Waves Water Park on Wednesdays, Sunday Serenades in Surfside Beach, and lively entertainment and fireworks throughout the week at Broadway at the Beach. And, one can’t forget the beach! Guests can enjoy endless hours of fun along the pristine shores of the Atlantic completely free of charge. And, Captain’s Quarters Resort’s convenient oceanfront location makes getting your toes into the sand almost effortless.
When you do go out, use your VMB Card for even more savings
