Live Entertainment in North Myrtle Beach

The Grand Strand area has a claim to fame in all sorts of categories. World-class shopping, golf, restaurants, and beaches draw millions of people to Myrtle Beach every summer. After a long day of shopping or hanging out on the beach, vacationers love to spend the warm nights inside, either at one of the exciting clubs at Broadway at the Beach, or watching a variety show at one of the area’s renowned theaters.

Live entertainment is a big part of the South Carolina vacation experience. Top-rated shows like The Carolina Opry or “One” at the Alabama Theater wow audiences with their professional musicians, original comedy sketches, and fantastic lights. These productions are extremely popular, and they stay updated with new material every year. The Legends Theater features several celebrity impersonators that put on a show that rivals the real thing. Treat your family to the critically-acclaimed shows at one of these theaters. They are sure to have a great time!

The Carolina Opry

For a kid-friendly adventure, look no further than Pirate’s Voyage. This live-action dinner show has amazing acrobatics, a huge pirate ship sailing in real water, and quality food that will satisfy the whole family. Formerly the Dixie Stampede, this theater has shows every night of the week. Sail in for a night of adventure on the high seas!

Other popular entertainment includes a dinner show at Medieval Times, acrobats at the Palace Theater, stand-up comedy at the Comedy Cabana, and live bands at many of the area bars and restaurants. Walk around Broadway at the Beach or the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk at night and you may be lucky enough to stumble upon some talented street performers! Check out this page for more info, or give us a call for vacation packages. Our live entertainment helps make us the best vacation destination on the East coast!

Check out our unparalleled property management!

Summer is definitely heating up, and vacationers from all over the east and mid-eastern states are congregating in North Myrtle Beach. This year, more guests than ever are coming to Ocean Drive Beach Rentals for an unforgettable vacation. We value our guests and place them first in our business, but we also love the opportunity to serve another kind of customer; the homeowner.

We understand that our business would not be possible without all the great homeowners we have on our rental program. Their properties serve as the home away from home to countless guests throughout the summer. Our inventory is filled with extraordinary and unique homes and condos, thanks to the homeowners that allow us to rent and maintain their property. And just as we want to reach out to potential guests, we also try to reach out to homeowners to invite them to try our property management services.

We are so confident in our property management that we are offering North Myrtle Beach homeowners the opportunity to sign a rental contract with us, with a low 5% commission rate. This rate is good for a full year from the contract signing, if they join our program before the end of 2012. We have had a great deal of success with our properties in the area, and we hope to expand even more by next season. If you or someone you know owns property in North Myrtle Beach, call us today for a consultation. Don’t let this opportunity slip away!

Do you really need Travel Insurance for your trip?

It’s a question we get asked often at our office. Vacationers eager to make the trip to North Myrtle Beach want to know – do I really need to get trip insurance?

The answer is as simple as your situation. Are you secure in your employment? Is there any chance you will lose income before your vacation? Are you on active duty in the military? Is a close family member sick? By answering these questions, you can be closer to making a decision about trip insurance.

Travel Insurance works similarly to other insurances; if you need to cancel your trip due to unforeseen circumstances, you would file a claim with the insurance company. They review your claim, along with any necessary paperwork and forms, and issue your refund if the reason for cancellation is covered. Most situations out of your control are covered, such as sickness or death of a family member, military duty, jury duty, loss of employment, missed connections, severe weather, and car accidents. Travel Guard, our insurance carrier, automatically offers other travel benefits to guests who purchase coverage. These extra perks include medical and emergency assistance, travel assistance, concierge services, identity theft protection, and roadside assistance.

The cost of this insurance is minimal and depends on your total trip cost. If you are booking a trip this summer, ask about travel insurance. If you have already made a reservation, call us to add it. You want to enjoy your vacation without worrying about things that are out of your control. You never know what could happen while on vacation, and you’re better off safe than sorry!

Economy Vacations in North Myrtle Beach

Like so many other places in America, South Carolina is feeling the effects of a slow economy. But North Myrtle Beach has the advantage of being a drive-to destination for millions of people who live near the east coast. Folks from thousands of miles around pack themselves and their luggage into the family car and road-trip down to the Grand Strand for beaches, seafood, sunshine, and beautiful resorts that rival anything in Hawaii, the Florida Keyes, or the Caribbean. And for the price of just flying your family to a far-off vacation spot, you can drive to North Myrtle Beach, afford a place to stay, cook fresh seafood in your condo’s full-size kitchen, and still have enough cash left over for souvenirs.

If you consider yourself a professional bargain hunter, there are special hidden gems around town that you can rent for your family’s summer vacation. Ocean Drive Beach Rentals has several properties of all sizes that cater to the price-conscious consumer. Ask yourself these questions: Is it necessary that you have an ocean view? Do you need to be within walking distance of everything or can you settle for driving a few minutes to attractions and restaurants? Do you want to pamper yourself with a new resort with all the amenities, or can your family get by with basic amenities and classic d├ęcor? Some families simply want a place to stay that is close to the beach and has enough beds for everyone. All our economy units are clean, safe, and some are even across the street from the beach! If you can settle for an ocean view condo rather than ocean front, you could save hundreds without sacrificing amenities.

Shorehaven D1, an economy property

Just because you can’t afford to take the whole family to Cancun or Disney World this summer doesn’t mean you have to stay home. You also don’t need to stay in a Five-Star resort to enjoy all that North Myrtle Beach has to offer. Give us a call and ask about our second row and economy units. We’re sure to have something for every budget. Book within a week of your arrival date to save even more! We would love to have you as our guest this summer.
