You want to use your hard-earned vacation time to work on your putting stroke on as many different courses as possible. Your better half wants to cut a rug Carolina Shag dancing all night long. And you both want to spend some lazy afternoons counting the clouds float across the baby-blue sky. You could book three separate vacations—or you could head to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and experience all three idyllic getaways at once. For a vacation that is filled with fun-in-the-sun beach activities, gorgeous gold courses, and amusements galore for all ages, check out flights to Myrtle Beach. The shining star of the Grand Strand (the 60-mile-long stretch running from Little River to Pawley's Island) Myrtle Beach is known as both the "Sun Fun Capital" and "Golf Capital of the World." Its boardwalk has been voted one of the nation's best, and there's no better way to see it than from the top of the iconic 200-foot-tall SkyWheel. Fly into Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR) dressed and ready to play in the sand or on the links. When you book your Myrtle Beach plane tickets through Travelocity, you’ll save enough to buy a few extra rounds—whether they be rounds of golf at the country club or rounds of drinks at the boardwalk beach club.
Once your Myrtle Beach flight touches down, you’re undoubtedly going to want to drop your clubs off at your hotel and freshen up before you begin exploring the area.
