Vacation at Crescent Shores in North Myrtle Beach

The North Myrtle Beach area is known for its seemingly endless string of condo complexes. From Windy Hill all the way up to the northern tip of Cherry Grove, buildings of all shapes and sizes sit at the water’s edge, each offering a slightly different vacation experience. How do you know which one to choose?

Crescent Shores is a large condo complex in the Crescent Beach section of North Myrtle Beach, and is the perfect choice for families who want to stay together and enjoy quality amenities, upscale accommodations, and convenient location. While Crescent Shores condos are not the cheapest option on the beach, they are great for those who want to impress their group with some extra luxury in addition to unobstructed ocean views.

Crescent Shores 911

Located at Ocean Blvd and 17th Ave South, the two Crescent Shores towers are oceanfront, with a parking garage across the street with free parking for guests. Molly Darcy’s Irish Pub sits directly next door to the building, offering authentic Irish cuisine and oceanfront happy hours. There is also a beachwear store and ice cream shop within easy walking distance. 17th Ave South will get you to Highway 17 in a snap, which is the major road taking you to Myrtle Beach attractions, outlet shopping, hundreds of dining options, and several golf courses.

Amenities at Crescent Shores include outdoor pool deck with large pool, lazy river, hot tub, and kiddie pool as well as a beach access walkway. There is also an indoor pool for those days the rain cuts your beach time short, and a fitness center to keep up with workouts.

Pool Deck

Inside, you’ll find condos with upscale furnishings, full kitchens with granite and stainless steel, private bathrooms, big living rooms, and attractive d├ęcor. The ocean views are front and center, and large windows in the master bedrooms and living rooms let you gaze at the ocean easily. Some units even have ocean views from all bedrooms! Cable TV and wireless internet help keep the group entertained and connected to social media. Ocean Drive Beach Rentals offers three bedroom and four bedroom condos at Crescent Shores for weekly summer vacations, off season mini vacations, and winter monthly rentals.

Advantages of a Late Summer North Myrtle Beach Vacation

What’s the best thing about a beach vacation? Relaxing on the shore with the soothing sound of the waves and the warm sun shining on your skin? The fresh sea breeze filling your lungs? The soft sand under your feet? How about the fun activities like live variety shows, aquarium, golf, museums, SkyWheel, and fishing? Or the endless shopping and dining options?

If you have been to North Myrtle Beach in the middle of summer and thought that it couldn't get any better, consider a late summer vacation and see what you've been missing! August and September trips offer all the best things about vacation, with a few added benefits. Rental rates begin to drop the third week in August, and continue to fall all the way into autumn. This means that the beautiful oceanfront condo that was a bit too expensive in July is much more affordable! Or, plan a big gathering at a large oceanfront or ocean view house and take advantage of low-cost accommodations. All our properties’ amenities remain open through September so you can take a dip in the outdoor pools or soak in the hot tubs. The weather is perfect for beach time and outdoor activities, and you’ll have less traffic and crowds to deal with as the busy summer season winds down in the 2nd half of August.

We have great condos and houses available to rent for your late summer vacation. Just give us a call at 877-287-2977 or visit our website to get started. You can view all properties and see our money-saving specials. We’re looking forward to seeing you at the beach!

Avoid Online Vacation Scams

When shopping for your family vacation, the internet is an invaluable tool. You can see photos, virtual tours, and read online reviews in order to get a good perspective on your rental. Browsing hundreds of properties on dozens of websites will help you find exactly what you need to ensure that your family has a comfortable and memorable North Myrtle Beach vacation. However, it’s important to be careful when shopping online; there are scams that will cheat eager vacationers out of money, ruining any hope for a fun trip.

In order to protect yourself, you’ll want to spend some time researching rentals thoroughly. There are plenty of good deals out there, but when you find one that is almost too good to be true, it probably is. If you see a rental being offered for much lower than comparable properties, it could be fraudulent. Make sure the rental company is legitimate and if possible, try to find reviews on the property. Craigslist is notorious for scams since it is not closely monitored. Stick to trustworthy sites like VRBO, FlipKey, Zaranga, and property managers’ sites like ours to be safe.

If you find a property listing online, Google the name of the property or the address. If the results on Google do not match what you see on the listing, it is likely a scam and should be avoided. Tell the “real” rental manager or owner that someone is listing their property illegally online, and do not complete a transaction until you are confident that the person you are dealing with is honest and straightforward. If you are unsure about someone claiming to be from a management company, try to contact the local chamber of commerce to verify the company.

At Ocean Drive Beach Rentals, we sympathize with the victims of online scams and we hope others can follow the tips above to keep their vacation investment safe. Call us at 877-287-2977 if you have questions about online vacation scams or if you think you may have found an unauthorized ODBR property listing.

North Myrtle Beach Public Parks

In addition to North Myrtle Beach’s variety of attractions, activities, and dining options, there are several public parks in the area that serve both vacationers and locals. Families with children may want to enjoy some outdoor time in our beautiful town without added expense, or treat the group to a sponsored event like live music or movies in the parks. It’ll make vacation even more memorable and fun!

McLean Park is one of the most popular NMB parks because of its location and events. This park is situated right off Main St at 93 Oak Dr and features 2 playgrounds, walking path, tennis courts, picnic shelters, baseball field, and beautiful garden and water areas with fountains. Families staying at nearby resorts can enjoy a family friendly movie at one of McLean’s monthly movie nights during the summer.

At 14th Ave South off of Highway 17, Central park is one of the largest city parks in North Myrtle Beach. Sports teams regularly hold their events at this park’s baseball fields, batting cages, soccer fields, and pickleball courts. There are also tennis courts, concession stands, walking path, 2 playgrounds, picnic areas, and restrooms.

Central Park

Hill St Park is in the Cherry Grove area, just off Sea Mountain Hwy at 2346 Hill St. This small park has a tennis court, a playground, and a picnic area, and is perfect for a quick stop while you’re exploring the neighborhoods of Cherry Grove.

North Myrtle Beach is proud of its newest facility, the Park and Sports Complex. This park is located at Highway 90 and Robert Edge Pkwy, next to Highway 31. With 6 baseball fields, 8 batting cages, 8 soccer fields, walking trails, 2 dog parks, picnic shelters, 3 playgrounds, meadow, amphitheater, and lake, the huge complex is a recreation hub. It hosts national and regional sporting events, bringing in teams from all over the country to compete.

Try Authentic South Carolina Cuisine on Your Vacation

Though not well known, South Carolina has a variety of dishes that would be considered “authentic” local cuisine. Some of these are traditional southern favorites, and some truly are unique creations that locals and tourists alike have loved for years.

If you are familiar with traditional southern food, you may have tried shrimp and grits. This is a mainstay on local menus throughout the state, but may vary slightly depending on where you order it. There are some upscale variations on this dish, using fresh jumbo Atlantic shrimp, specialty cheeses, and varying blends of spices to make sure each chef’s recipe is distinguished from others. Raw oysters are another favorite, and dozens of oyster bars around Myrtle Beach serve up raw or cooked oysters fresh from nearby waters. Crab cakes made from fresh local blue crabs are also a must-have if you want a tried-and-true seafood dish. Again, many variations of this can be found in the area, from upscale restaurants to crab cake sandwiches from festival vendors. South Carolina also takes its barbecue seriously! Whether you like vinegar based sauce or thick, tangy sauce, plenty of barbecue joints serve melt-in-your mouth smoked pork and beef sans sauce so you can customize your flavor with the sauce of your choice.

If you are the kind of foodie that loves local inventions that can’t be found anywhere else, there are a couple of favorites you must have while you’re in town. Chicken bog is a South Carolina staple and is made with rice, chicken, and sausage. Some people will add vegetables or hot sauce to their recipe for extra flavor. Don’t forget to try chicken bog at local restaurants, cookouts, festivals, and even the annual “bog off” in Loris, SC. If seafood is more your style, head up to Calabash, NC to partake in “Calabash-style” seafood. There are many fishing vessels that unload their fresh catch directly to the waterfront restaurants so you can enjoy the freshest fried seafood you've ever had.

Chicken Bog

When you check in to your Ocean Drive Beach Rentals property, be sure to ask our staff for recommendations on the best local restaurants. We’ll give you insider’s tips on the best places to eat!

North Myrtle Beach Tent Ban

This year, we have received a lot of questions from guests who are curious about the changes in beach regulations, especially regarding beach tents. The city of North Myrtle Beach has passed measures to ban certain types of beach shelters and shading devices on the beach this year. The ban is in effect from May 15th to September 15th.

According to the city, the primary reason for the ban is to make it easier for emergency personnel to reach swimmers and beachgoers that may need medical assistance. In the past, beach tents have essentially blocked police and medical responders from accessing the beach in certain places. There are some large access points at the beach that were made specifically for emergency vehicles, and it is important to keep these areas clear. When tents are placed on the beach, it is also more difficult for lifeguards and law enforcement to monitor the beach and keep vacationers safe.

Tents are defined as shelters or shading devices that are attached to the ground by more than one support. Even though the city has placed this ban on tents, visitors to the beach may still use chairs and umbrellas. These can still be rented on the beach as well. Also, for those that visit the beach after September 15th and before May 15th, tents are still permissible. You can find more info on beach regulations here, or visit Ocean Drive Beach Rentals’ website for more details about renting property in the great city of North Myrtle Beach.

Start a New Vacation Tradition in North Myrtle Beach

The east coast of the US is full of great vacation spots. Each region has a unique feel and offers a special kind of beach experience.

The Myrtle Beach area has been a mainstay for family vacations for over half a century. The Grand Strand is made up of several small beach communities branching out from Myrtle Beach, and the region has been continually reinventing itself with new attractions and activities while remaining a first rate vacation destination. Myrtle Beach is packed with all kinds of great sights and experiences.

North Myrtle Beach has the best oceanfront condos and houses for your vacation, and they’re all located minutes away from any attraction or activity.
