North Myrtle Beach an Affordable Family Destination

You want to take your family on vacation this year, but the money situation is still a little tight for 2012. Ocean Drive Beach Rentals believes everyone deserves a memorable family beach vacation. North Myrtle Beach is an awesome family-friendly destination with lots to do and see. Our beach won’t break your bank, and you’ll be traveling back home with more money than you can imagine by following a few simple money-saving tips.

Invite the whole family down to North Myrtle Beach to enjoy a vacation. How great would it be to share the experience with relatives? When was the last time your family shared a vacation rental home or condo with cousins? Family reunions are an extremely popular vacation trend, and it serves as a chance to catch up on all the current events in your extended family. Ask family members to chip in to the total cost of the vacation rental. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind donating a few extra dollars to have fun at the beach – miles away from home.

It's free to build sandcastles on the beach! Little goes a very long way...

One major advantage to vacationing in a vacation rental vs. a hotel or resort room is that you have a fully equipped kitchen to cook some great meals. Save vacation dollars by dining in more, and eating out only a couple nights in North Myrtle Beach. Get creative, research coastal recipes, and cook a new meal for the family! Prepare for your feast, and visit local fresh seafood markets for the daily catch and unique seasonings.

Another way to save big on your North Myrtle Beach vacation is to buy attraction tickets in advance on the internet. Most, if not all, popular attractions sell tickets through their websites. You may be able to save up to 15% off the gate or admission price just by buying your tickets in advance. Plus, you won’t have to waste time by standing in long lines at the ticketing booths on site at the attractions. It does make a difference on the cost of your vacation, especially for large family groups. Mix up the adventure on your vacation, and visit Ripley’s Aquarium or Myrtle Waves Water Park.

I have only touched on a few of the many ways you can save on your next North Myrtle Beach family vacation.
