The city of Myrtle Beach is considered the world capital of golf. It also has several kilometers of beaches, water parks and one of the best climates of the U.S. Atlantic coast.
Although annually receives about 14 million visitors, the coastal city of Myrtle Beach (South Carolina) is still little known among American and European tourists. With direct flights from New York, Miami and Orlando, is a spa as great as accessible and meets the needs of who go looking for idyllic beaches and of those who love sports and water parks.
Located a few kilometers from the border with North Carolina, Myrtle Beach has only 22,000 permanent residents but every summer travelers arriving contingents throughout the United States.
One of the great attractions of Myrtle Beach is golf. Fans of the sport attracted by its more than 100 golf courses and tourist packages are designed for amateur (which include, for example, green fees, accommodation and boutique hotels gourmet dinners). In Whispering Pines Golf Course is a good choice in the matter.
To contrast the serenity of its beaches, waterpark Myrtle Waves offers a long list of attractions that are worth mentioning. Between mid-May and mid-September, the place opens its doors with about 30 games including an artificial ocean of nearly 2000 square meters and the "Snake Mountain", an impressive waterslide that can be traveled in 42 dizzying seconds. For guys (or less risky) are other simpler games.
For these and many other reasons, Myrtle Beach looms as a tantalizing experience for family travelers, entertainment lovers or just those looking at different beaches of Florida.
