Best Spring Break 2017 Nightlife in Myrtle Beach

February 27, 2017

Now that spring weather has arrived on the Grand Strand, along with it comes droves of visitors looking to celebrate the annual rite of passage known as Spring Break. 2017 in Myrtle Beach is a great year to visit, as there are plenty of new things to check out, and as always many of the area’s bars, clubs and nightlife spots are rolling out the red carpet to cater to spring breakers looking for a good time.

Of course, our area has been a haven for bikini-clad partiers for many years, but recently Myrtle Beach has racked up a few endorsements from those in the know. A couple of years ago, listed us #5 on its list of “19 Sexiest Spring Break Destinations” citing places like Hotel Blue among the sexiest places to stay and placing the Grand Strand above popular spring break spots like Daytona Beach and Fort Myers on its list.

Also getting in on the act has rated Myrtle Beach #3 on its list of “America’s Top 20 Trashiest Spring Break Destinations.” Although this may sound like a bad thing, when you realize “trashiest” is really just code for “most fun” it’s no wonder or warm water, cheap drinks and selection of activities got us ranked above places like Virginia Beach, Destin and South Padre Island.

Even the readers of USA Today got in on the fun, by voting Myrtle Beach #1 in the 10 Best Readers’ Choice Poll for “Best Spring Break Destinations.” Recognized by readers for its family-friendly atmosphere — a testament to the fact that the area can be both fun for families and party people — Myrtle Beach beat out nominees such as Cabo San Lucas, Mexico,Cancun and Montego Bay, Jamaica.

But regardless of whether you and your crew are looking to go completely wild and party or just enjoy a few days of beachfront relaxation and enjoy some of the best things to do, there’s plenty ways to enjoy Spring Break 2015 in Myrtle Beach.
