North Myrtle Beach Vacation Rental Amenities

When you plan your beach vacation, an important thing to keep in mind is what kind of amenities are going to be offered at your vacation property. If you stay at a hotel, your choices are pretty much the same wherever you go; pool, hot tub, maybe a continental breakfast or high speed internet. But what if you are taking your family or planning your trip for a large group? Private rentals are definitely the better choice, but when it comes to amenities, you’d be wise to do your homework.

If you've always wanted the kind of vacation where you can relax in privacy, a house rental may be just the thing for you. Houses offer more square footage, more privacy, and a yard to play in. But houses lack the amenities that resorts have. There are some houses that offer private hot tubs and a few that even have pools, but these are rare and often cost much more than families are prepared to spend. A house is a great option for those who want to accommodate a large group but are ok going without on-site amenities.

Resorts, on the other hand, offer much in the way of amenities. Some smaller resorts are limited to only shared pools and hot tubs. The larger resorts offer fitness centers, indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, lazy rivers, and sometimes even waterslides and on-site restaurants. However, a lot of large resorts get heavy traffic, especially during the summer. This can create parking hassles and might affect the peace and quiet some look forward to on their vacation. When you make your vacation plans, involve the other members of your group and collectively decide which amenities you like. This will help narrow down your choices while ensuring you satisfy the group.

One of the best things about Ocean Drive Beach Rentals is that we offer our guests a variety of choices. We have condos of all sizes in small and large resorts alike. Some have a ton of on-site amenities, which add value to your overall vacation experience. We also offer large houses where peace and quiet are abundant. When you call our office, we customize your vacation around what is most important to you. That’s why we’re the best on the beach!

North Myrtle Beach Amusement Parks

Vacationing in the Myrtle Beach area means having access to the best attractions on the east coast. If you take a family vacation with your kids, you’ll want to find a few places you can bring them to spend a day outside enjoying all kinds of amusement park fun.

The OD Pavilion in North Myrtle Beach is a semi-permanent carnival that sets up for the summer season every year. Folks from all around North Myrtle Beach come to take part in the nostalgia of the carnival rides, games, arcade, and food stands. The OD Pavilion is on the beach in the Ocean Drive section of North Myrtle Beach, and is within walking distance of several Ocean Drive Beach Rentals condos.

Family Kingdom is located in Myrtle Beach, and is the largest traditional amusement park in the area and features a full size roller coaster and other fun rides and games. In addition to the roller coaster, Family Kingdom has bumper cars, log flume, Ferris wheel, and oceanfront water park.

Myrtle Waves is a large water park close to Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach. Featuring 20 acres of water slides, kiddie pools, Lazy River, and wave pool, the whole family will have a blast exploring the cool water activities. Next to Myrtle Waves is the NASCAR Speedpark, a race-themed go-cart park with several tracks for kids and adults alike. You can buy a multi-park “flex” ticket and enjoy both parks with one ticket!

Amusement parks are just some of the many attractions that bring vacationers to the Grand Strand. Families with young children will surely want to make a theme park or water park a part of their trip. When you book your Ocean Drive Beach Rentals condo, ask about amusement parks and other area attractions. We’ll give you tips on the best things the Myrtle Beach area has to offer!
