Myrtle Beach Hotels Put the Focus on Family Fun

Don't let family vacation time intimidate you; travel with the whole crew and stay at a family friendly hotel in Myrtle Beach. Of course, any oceanfront hotel gives guests easy access to the beach, and that's fine for families that plan to spend every waking hour baking in the sun and sand. But there are select hotels and resorts that cater specifically to families by offering a wide range of activities that will interest all ages and allow families to make some lasting vacation memories without leaving the property. Looking to spend time in the company of your kids or relatives without sacrificing privacy with your spouse? Try the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center or the Sheraton Broadway Plantation in Myrtle Beach. Or maybe you're still a kid at heart and plan to play all day with the little ones. Oceanfront resorts like Island Vista feature plenty of amenities for the whole family, plus live entertainment on the poolside deck and an active kids club to keep the children engaged in activities. Some resorts, such as Dunes Village and Ocean Reef, have their own on-site water parks. Whatever your family is looking for, Myrtle Beach has the perfect place to fit your family retreat to a tee.
