And now let’s surf through some of the extremely pleasing places in this fun city , before the real adventure .
First of all , Hotels and Motels .
This is the first thing you usually do , when planning your vacation , booking the hotel . So finding the right hotel is one of the keys to the a fun vacation . In Myrtle Beach most of the hotels are located right on the beach , streaching from south west to north east , and there are some that are a little far from the beach ( but closer to some of the most beautiful places Myrtle Beach has to offer ) . We have over 250 hotels and motels ( not including North Myrtle Beach and Surfside Beach ) that welcome millions of tourists every year in here . And our guess is the number one destination here is the beaches , means when choosing the hotel , closer to the beach is better .
The list of the hotels we recommend are :
1. Bay View Resort
Beatiful place to stay , central location to everything fun to do in Myrtle Beach , great oceanview rooms . It is very close to breakfast , lunch and dinner restaurants , including our Seafood World seafood and steak buffet .
2. The Breakers Resort
