Sure, some people may think that living in a tourist town can be expensive since prices for things to do can be a little on the higher side compared to a non-tourist town, but there are ways to save. Locals get to take advantage of local discounts throughout the year at many different attractions and restaurants. Plus, there are always coupons, such as the ones on our coupons page, which will score you deals at tons of places in the area.

The Beach & Golf

This one goes without saying. If you love the beach and you love nice weather, then you’ll absolutely get a kick out of living in Myrtle Beach. Think about it: millions of people flock to Myrtle Beach for vacation each year for beach trips and golf trips. Lucky for locals, though, is that most people visit during the summer, and we get to take advantage of the beach and the beautiful weather during the off-season when it’s less crowded. And, since the weather stays temperate throughout the year (with some cold days here and there), the golf season is virtually never-ending.

Always on Vacation
