We are all breathing a sigh of relief each time we fill up at gas stations across the country. The price of gasoline continues to decline, as it has for nearly a year. The benefits of low gas prices are obvious; less money spent on gas means more money you can spend somewhere else. But have you thought about what it can mean for your annual vacation?
Thousands of families drive to North Myrtle Beach every year to vacation in our popular resort town, and those folks will surely find it easier and more affordable to make it again this year. Some people choose to fly in to Myrtle Beach for vacation, but this year gas prices may make driving irresistible after figuring out the total cost of an airline ticket and baggage handling. Depending on where you live, flying also may not be the time-saver you though it was, so weigh both options before you decide to fly.
Lastly, if you have never been to North Myrtle Beach, consider the drop in the price at the pump just one more reason to check out this fantastic destination. Saving money on gas might mean that you can afford a more upscale condo or house for your family’s rental. It might mean more money to spend on attractions and activities that build memories. It also might mean more cash to shop and dine at our unique establishments. Go ahead and plan your 2015 vacation today and enjoy a relaxing and fun trip with your family without worrying about the cost of getting here!
