New Sports Complex Comes to North Myrtle Beach

The Myrtle Beach area is a bustling tourism hub, with families coming in from all over the world to experience the beaches, entertainment, attractions, golf, and shopping. There are also sporting events and tournaments that bring baseball and basketball teams and their families to Myrtle Beach every year. Sports tourism is a growing segment of the tourism industry, and the city of North Myrtle Beach is hard at work on a brand new park and sports complex that, when finished, will rival any other in the nation.

At the busy intersection of Highway 31 and Robert Edge Parkway, a vast tract of land is being developed into a landmark location for college and high school teams to compete, and the local community to enjoy. Besides the eight soccer/lacrosse/football fields, six baseball diamonds and playground, there will also be an amphitheater, dog park, picnic shelters, and a 27-acre lake. Vacationers and locals alike will love the new North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex, and the local economy will enjoy the benefits of the boost in visitors.

 If you are part of a competitive sports team or looking for another family activity for your vacation, be sure to check out the new complex, to be completed in February 2014. You’ll need accommodations for your trip, and all Ocean Drive Beach Rentals’ properties are within minutes of the complex. Some families will want to combine their family vacation with a baseball or basketball tournament. We have the perfect properties for those groups, from beautiful oceanfront condos to large beach houses. Call us to plan your trip!

Myrtle Beach Shopping Isn’t Just for Ladies Anymore

By now you probably know that shopping is one of the best things about a Myrtle Beach vacation. With 2 outlet malls, countless beachwear and souvenir stores, hundreds of gift shops, and 2 regional malls, you can visit a new store every day and still not see them all. Shopping is traditionally a ladies’ venture, and they will shop the malls while the men go deep sea fishing or golfing. But Myrtle Beach is also full of stores where the men can have their own shopping excursion.

Perhaps the most famous outdoor enthusiast mega-store is Bass Pro Shops, located near the intersection of Highway 17 and Highway 22. This camping/hunting/fishing wonderland is close to Tanger Outlets, so the women can browse dozens of brand name stores nearby while the men of the family shop in one giant emporium that offers everything they need for an outdoor adventure.

 Myrtle Beach is also home to several large golf stores such as Martin’s PGA Tour Store. If it is related to golf, you can find it there. There are hundreds of golf courses in the area, so a pro shop is never far away. Camping World is in Myrtle Beach off Highway 501, offering everything you need for your outdoor experience or RV road trip. The Tanger Outlet malls have men’s clothing and sports apparel, so you’re sure to find comfortable clothes for your vacation. When you check in to your Ocean Drive Beach Rentals vacation property, ask our knowledgeable staff for more recommendations so you can make shopping a memorable part of your trip!
