These days it seems like everyone is looking for a deal and when you’re on vacation, that may be even more true. We’ve put together some easy things you can do to make sure you have the perfect Myrtle Beach vacation that won’t break the bank, including tips on meals, attractions and where to stay. These tips and tricks will show you exactly how to save a few pennies (and then some) in and around the Myrtle Beach area!

Plan your Meals

When you book your vacation rental through Condo-World, your gorgeous oceanfront condo will have a full kitchen, making it easy to cook your meals and save money by dining in. You can order your groceries ahead of time and either pick them up when you get to the beach or have them delivered to your condo!  Buy the basics for breakfast and lunch and you’ll be amazed how much money this can save for a family. If you want to dine out, check for coupons around town or even on the restaurant’s website or social media pages. There are plenty of places that offer free meals for kiddos so be sure to check ahead to see what nights your little ones can dine free and take advantage of those savings.

Find the Deals

Stop in the local chamber of commerce or in the lobby at your Myrtle Beach resort and you’ll find stacks of coupon books, brochures and information on area attractions and more. These coupons can help you find the best deals to vacation on the cheap – from mini golf to ice cream shops, there’s a coupon in there for everything.

Free & Inexpensive Attractions

There are plenty of great attractions and things to do in North Myrtle Beach that are free or will at least work for families vacationing on a budget. First up, there’s the beach – it’s the reason you came here after all! Pack a beach lunch and spend all day splashing in the waves and building sandcastles with your crew. Even if you come in the off-season, there’s still plenty of sunshine-filled days to enjoy time out on the beautiful beaches on the Grand Strand.

Myrtle Beach and Huntington State Parks are a great way to see the natural parts of the Grand Strand that you might not see anywhere else. They’ve got nature trails to explore, free programs for children to learn about all kinds of animals, interesting exhibits and centers and more beautiful beaches. The best part? Admission is less than $10 per person!

Want to explore even more of the Grand Strand? Make your way around the boardwalks at Barefoot Landing and you may get lucky and spot an alligator floating around. Broadway at the Beach has so much to see and do including fun amusement rides for reasonable rates and plenty of places to stop and feed the enormous fish in the water. The Murrells Inlet MarshWalk is another great place to take a stroll. Admire the hilarious goats on Goat Island and stop for a snack at one of the fabulous restaurants along the way. The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is a definite must-do when you visit the Grand Strand. With over a mile of boardwalk, it stretches from the Second Avenue Pier to just beyond Pier 14 with plenty to do and see in between. The Market Common in Myrtle Beach is another great place to walk around, play at the great parks and even see some old planes from the former Air Force Base – all for free!
