Winter in Myrtle Beach: Warm Up the Family in South Carolina

Winter in Myrtle Beach: Warm Up the Family in South Carolina

As autumn briskly transforms into frigid winter for much of the United States, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, remains a beautiful, warm, and sunny coastal paradise. Yes, there are going to be occasional chilly beach days during the winter months, but most afternoons hover around 60 degrees. After spending months in freezing temperatures (subzero for some of you), 60 degrees and sunny is going to feel like 90. Together Resorts has family-sized vacation rentals scattered along South Carolina’s coast. We know better than anyone that winter in Myrtle Beach provides families with a warm, peaceful, uncrowded, and beautiful South Carolina getaway.

Winter in Myrtle Beach?

There are many reasons to choose a family vacation during winter in Myrtle Beach, but the low prices are undoubtedly number one. Average prices at most hotels in Myrtle Beach drop over 55 percent! While many families are embarking on winter getaways via cruise ship, you can save hundreds, if not thousands, on resort rates alone. Most beachfront attractions, especially ones geared toward families, stay open during the “off-season.” And your family won’t have to squeeze through large masses or wait over an hour for dinner because the summer crowds have come and gone until mid-March.

Things to Do in Myrtle Beach in the Winter

Just because the temperatures occasionally drop into the 50s here in Myrtle Beach doesn’t mean there isn’t a seemingly endless amount of family-friendly activities minutes away from Together Resorts. Winter in Myrtle Beach isn’t complete without visits to WonderWorks, SkyWheel, Hollywood Wax Museum, Ripley’s Aquarium, GTS Theatre, and Broadway at the Beach. You can, of course, always play 18 holes at a world-renowned golf course, search for seashells on the beach, or visit nearby Brookgreen Gardens.

Together Resorts

Together Resorts is, first and foremost, a premier destination for large groups, families, and reunions. Most Myrtle Beach hotels cannot accommodate nearly 50 people under one roof, but our massive vacation rentals were explicitly designed to host groups of all sizes. We’ve hosted groups of eight, 48, and 128, all at once. To find the unit that’s best for your family, give us a call at 1-855-585-2121. Availability occasionally varies because of sports travel teams, so remember to book a winter vacation before rates inevitably rise.

5 Reasons Golf Groups Love Together Resorts

5 Reasons Golf Groups Love Together Resorts

Myrtle Beach’s best kept secret is no longer a secret! Together Resorts beach houses are becoming the go-to option for group travel along the Grand Strand.

Golf groups, in particular, are beginning to see the benefit of booking with Together Resorts versus the traditional hotel room. Together Resorts understands the unique challenges that come with planning group travel and are prepared to help you make the most of your Myrtle Beach vacation.

Learn why so many golfers are skipping the hotel and are booking a Together Resorts beach house!

 


1.) Affordable Golf Accommodations

The Together Resorts properties offer a unique opportunity to save on your golf lodging. Typically, golf groups will agree on an area hotel and either book individual rooms or pair up to share a hotel room, which can be costly and time consuming.

 

Booking a hotel for your golf group also comes with the following potential headaches:

• Inflated prices due to seasonality
• No guarantee that rooms will be close to each other on-property
• Lack of space and privacy
• No central areas for group to mingle
• No kitchen area for group meals

… the list goes on and on.

 

Booking a Together Resorts beach house eliminates all of these concerns!

Rather than coordinating multiple rooms, guests can enjoy the privacy and convenience of staying together under roof, which means you only have to pay once for the entire group. The group can then split the entire cost, driving down the cost and making it much more affordable in the long run. This works especially well for large golf groups – don’t forget that our beach houses can sleep up to 35 guests!

 


2.) Great Amenities For Golfers

Booking a Together Resorts beach house allows guests to enjoy all of the comforts of home. Don’t fret about uncomfortable furniture or paying for “family style” amenities that you probably won’t use during your stay. Instead, invest in a trip that includes all of the space you need with upgraded amenities that you won’t find at any area hotel.

Our spacious properties comes with the following amenities that area great for golfers for no extra charge:
• Space for up to 35 guests under one roof
• Private bedrooms and bathrooms
• Large chef grade kitchen
• Luxurious media room for sports games and movies
• Pool table and arcade / game room
• Several common areas for down time
• Spacious outdoor pool deck with pools and Jacuzzis
• Convenient location
• Much more!

3.) Convenient Location Near Myrtle Beach Area Courses

Together Resorts offers several locations along the Grand Strand, making it easy to book a beach house near the golf courses your group is looking to play. Our Cherry Grove units are ideal for North Myrtle Beach and Calabash area courses while our Myrtle Beach houses are best for those looking to golf along the South end of the Strand.

View all of our available beach houses and start planning your stay!

 


 

4.) Easy Access To Myrtle Beach Restaurants & Attractions

Not only are our beach houses located near several area golf courses, they also offer convenient access to all of the area restaurants and attractions that golfers love! Myrtle Beach offers plenty to do throughout the year to help you make the most of your beach vacation. Whether you are looking to enjoy a post-game happy hour or want to check out a local sports team, you will find plenty to do within a short drive of our beach houses.

Check out our roundup of the best things to do after your tee time to get some ideas!

 


 

5.) Fast & Easy Booking Process

Coordinating hotel plans for a large group can be a pain. Attempting to find enough rooms during peak season at one property can sometimes be impossible and there is no guarantee that the rooms will be anywhere near each other when it comes to check-in.

Together Resorts specializes in group travel and has worked to make the booking process as fast and easy as possible!

Book A Fishing Charter

Try your hand at catching dinner by taking a Myrtle Beach fishing charter!

Typically, guests can choose from a full day charter or a half-day trip and choose from inshore fishing, nearshore fishing, or offshore fishing. Guests can also catch everything from flounder, tuna, and mahi mahi, which are great for eating, or go for the sportfish like blue marlin or sailfish, which are extra fun to catch. If you are interested in a fishing charter, research boats that leave out of either Little River or Georgetown, as those are the two most popular departure points.
