The area provides more than enough in entertainment, as the Grand Strand is loaded with shops, restaurants, night clubs, and more to keep you and your family entertained. If you are considering visiting the area and want the full-on experience you may want to consider looking at Myrtle Beach Condos for rent.

And for the more historically inclined, Wilmington, NC, and Charleston, SC, are both just a short drive away.
