In fact, the average daily room rate during May is about $100.27, with about a 52% occupancy rate.

The beautiful May weather is perfect for enjoying outdoor attractions like Broadway at the Beach, the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, Go Ape! Zip Line & Treetop Adventure, Myrtle Waves, Wild Water & Wheels, watersports, the beach, and so much more!



Did you know Myrtle Beach is called the Seaside Capital of the U.S.? Spring is prime golf season. Traffic is still fairly light at the beach ahead of the summer season, and temperatures are perfect for a day on the links. Check out some golf deals, and make a weekend -- or even a week -- of it.



In Myrtle Beach, entertainment is around every corner! This time of year, all of the best shows in town are going on, so be sure to book your tickets.
