This Is One Of The Best Places To Stay Right By Myrtle Beach Without Breaking The Bank

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, offers visitors a classic American beach vacation. There's an amusement park, arcades, and a boardwalk.

While beach vacations can be pricy, Myrtle Beach is the best-budget-friendly beach on the South Carolina Coast.

Likewise, Carolinian Beach Resort has a pool, lazy river, hot tub, and a kiddie pool. Seasonal onsite activities (free and paid), like games and crafts, are also offered to guests.
