April 7, 2016

There's no doubt that Myrtle Beach has earned its reputation as one of the best budget vacation destinations around. From the affordable rooms and great hotel deals to the the happy hour bargains at local watering holes, there are plenty of ways to save some cash while you're enjoying yourself at the beach.

We've listed some of our favorite local bars and restaurants for cheap drinks and great happy hour bargains. Don't see your favorite spot listed? Add it to the comments below!

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

1251 21st Avenue North, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577
from 17

The only catch about this inexpensive watering hole is you have to buy the ticket to get to in. At the Myrtle Beach Pelicans baseball stadium, the tickets are only $9 to get into a home game and then from there the prices just go down. On Thirsty Thursdays they offer $1 Budweisers and Bud Lights in the “thirst inning deck.” On Tuesdays they have $2 craft beers all over the stadium, and on Fridays wine is half off! So come check out the leading baseball team on the Grand Strand and get some cheap drinks.
