Save with our Endless Fun Club Program!

Ocean Drive Beach Rentals strives to make every vacation memorable and fun for each of our guests. As we ensure that your time spent on the beach is the best it can be, we constantly look out for ways that guests can save money while they’re here. Last year we created the Endless Fun Club, which offers special discounts at participating businesses and restaurants, just by showing an Ocean Drive Beach Rentals room key. This year, we are adding more and more businesses to our Endless Fun Club to make sure we are the leader in accommodating vacationing families. We’d like to welcome Mykonos Greek Restaurant and Preston’s Seafood Buffet to our program. We are also going to be selling discounted tickets to the new WonderWorks museum in Myrtle Beach.

The famous WonderWorks' "upside - down building"

As we grow the number of partnerships with area businesses, we welcome any suggestions from past guests. Is there a business you frequent while you’re on vacation? Let us know on our Facebook page where you’d like to have a discount or special perk in the North Myrtle Beach area!

Also, be on the lookout for new attractions and restaurants joining the Endless Fun Club. Check out our full list of participants under the “specials” tab on our website, and keep these places in mind the next time you’re here. We love providing unparalleled service to our guests!

What's the Difference?

When families are looking to vacation in South Carolina, the first place that comes to mind is the Grand Strand. Right in the middle of the Grand Strand is the area’s most popular tourist destination, Myrtle Beach. While this little town has its own claim to fame as one of the best vacationing spots on the East Coast, there are other charming beach communities that form one long, continuous chain down the beach.

One of these small communities is North Myrtle Beach. It’s easy to confuse Myrtle Beach with North Myrtle Beach, but folks that have been coming down for a long time know that there are several distinctions between the neighboring cities. NMB is its own town, not the “Northern” part of Myrtle Beach, and people that spend their vacation here have quite a different experience from those staying a little further south. The most noticeable difference may be the crowds. While Highway 17 can be congested for miles, traffic seems to be lighter up in NMB. In the summer, there are always people outside enjoying the beachside amusement park and shops on Main Street, but cars will never crowd the area, making for a relaxing drive wherever you need to go. NMB is much smaller than Myrtle Beach, so you’ll get the feeling you’re in a safe, friendly community right away.

Even though NMB is smaller, don’t think you’ll have to sacrifice entertainment while you’re here. There is just as much to see and do as in Myrtle Beach. There are two theaters that feature variety shows, the House of Blues, Alligator Adventure, Mini golf, and countless restaurants to discover in NMB, not to mention multiple full size golf courses in the area. Barefoot Landing is a central hub for shopping and dining, and just minutes away from your Ocean Drive Beach Rentals condo. So when you are planning your week here, make us your home base. From there you can enjoy the best the South Carolina beach has to offer!
