Eat, Drink and Be Merry at the Myrtle Beach Food Truck Festival

It’s no coincidence that people equate fun with the sun.


It’s a big draw for what makes the Grand Strand a popular spring and summer vacation destination. But it’s not the only thing! Myrtle Beach features many unforgettable experiences and places.


It’s the No. 1 vacation destination for so many. Here’s why.

1. The Average Family Can Afford It

Getting your resort bill won’t leave a sour taste in your mouth! When you stay at Bay View Resort, you can count on a money-saving deal going on. They allow you to have more fun elsewhere on your trip!


RECOMMENDED: Spend an afternoon enjoying Broadway at the Beach. Shop for bargains, share a meal, and stay for fireworks Tuesdays and Fridays.

2. You Can Embark on a Culinary Crusade

Pack your going-out-to-eat clothes. Myrtle Beach boasts amazing dishes at incredible restaurants. Near Bay View Resort, indulge in scrumptious burgers at Wahlburgers. Level up to an Uptown Top Shelf Margarita at Margaritaville.


RECOMMENDED: Try Pineapple Fried Rice at Thai Lao. It’s a modest mainstay locals and visitors alike love. A sure-fire hidden gem.


3. No Shortage of Fantastic Highs

The Grand Strand boasts an abundance of breathtaking views. None are as great as the ones from aboard Skywheel. Bring your cameras and smartphones: Rise 200 feet above the beach for a view like no other.
