What type of Myrtle Beach vacationer are you? Take the quiz

There are so many things to do in Myrtle Beach, it’s tough to decide just what kind of trip you want to make there.

From the mild (a tasting with friends at Dupin Winery) to the wild (a River Island Adventure), you’ve got your pick in Myrtle Beach. There’s plenty in between, too. A cruise with Enchanted Sailing Charters, for the romantic, for instance.

If an exceptional round at one of the south’s finest golf courses (such as The Dunes Golf and Beach Club) is more your speed, you can find that in Myrtle Beach, too. Broadway at the Beach has plenty for a family to do and see, and you can’t go wrong at Sea Captains House for an unforgettable meal here. We know, it’s a lot, isn’t it? That’s why we devised this quiz to steer you in the right direction for your next getaway here.
