Grand Atlantic Travel Blog

Spring is an exciting time at Grand Atlantic, because we are honored to welcome back families. Most of us have vivid memories of road trips to the beach, and adventures that we experienced together. Vacation time is precious. We work all year long for the opportunity to take a few days to rest, relax or to dive in to a fun adventure, don't we?

Our front desk team is often asked, "How can we make the most of our time at the beach?" Our number one tip would be, "Don't try to cram too many activities into your days."

With the numerous attractions, theaters and wonderful restaurants, it can be a difficult decision to map out your time and activities. The majority of our guests choose Myrtle Beach as a destination because of the sixty miles of white, sandy beaches, and of course the extraordinary Atlantic Ocean.

So, be sure to allow yourself to fully enjoy that number one attraction. Grand Atlantic provides the ideal place to check out at least one sunrise. Grab a cup of coffee, walk out to your oceanfront balcony and take in the majesty of greeting the day.

We hope that you will relax, and enjoy the beach. Don't forget to bring and use sunscreen, because nothing can spoil your vacation quicker than dealing with the misery of sunburn. We also suggest that you bring a cheap pair of sunglasses with you, as this is an item that often gets left behind at restaurants, the beach and pool decks.

Grand Atlantic is pleased to offer "Play like a Kid," packages that allows our rental guests free DVD rentals. Maybe, there's just a day when you simply want to enjoy a good movie, popcorn and the comfortable condo. We're always happy to assist with ideas and information about nearby shopping, attractions and restaurants. Thank you for spending your vacation time at Grand Atlantic!


Winter at Grand Atlantic

Winter is wonderful in Myrtle Beach! Every winter, the Grand Atlantic Resort team is delighted to welcome back old friends when the winter snowbird guests return. While a large portion of the United States is cold and frozen, the mild winter weather of Myrtle Beach makes it the ideal destination to escape winter.

Grand Atlantic condo rates are much lower than what they would normally be during the busiest part of the tourist season. We've been told by some of our winter monthly guests that they reduce their winter household expenses when they don't need to purchase snow tires, snow removal services, and they can turn back the thermostat because they are on an extended vacation.

Friendships are formed among the Grand Atlantic monthly guests when they participate in complimentary "monthly guest" resort activities. Water aerobics, Wii games, the Super Bowl Sunday party are just a few of the favorites. But, of course, the most enjoyable activity of all can be found just steps beyond your oceanfront condo, with sixty miles of white, sandy beaches just waiting to be explored.

Sometimes we're asked, "Does Myrtle Beach theaters, dining and entertainment slow down during the winter?" The answer is a resounding NO! Guests are sure to be entertained by a number of live theater shows, fine dining, shopping, shopping and more shopping, plus, attraction venues such as Ripley's Aquarium, Hollywood Wax Museum and much more.

And keep in mind, that on warm sunny days, guests might choose to enjoy one of the numerous golf courses, wandering through Brookgreen Gardens, or maybe enjoying the best views of the Grand Strand from the Myrtle Beach Skywheel, or the piers.

Any Season...Any Reason is the perfect time to enjoy Myrtle Beach. We invite to come for a short visit, or call to inquire about our seasonal monthly rates.
