Destination guide

Enjoy scenic beaches from a North Myrtle Beach house rental

North Myrtle Beach house rentals put you in the heart of the Grand Strand, a 60-mile string of gorgeous Atlantic beaches. With a house rental, you can explore the vibrant downtown area with its shops, bars, and eateries, or take the kids to the nearby O.D. Pavilion Amusement Park for old-fashioned fairground rides and classic snacks. You'll also like Alligator Adventure, an animal park with reptile swamps and shows.

Things to do

Places to visit near North Myrtle Beach vacation homes

The city's many miniature golf courses offer big fun for families, especially as the increasingly imaginative courses up the ante with exciting elements like a 50-foot "active volcano" or a pirate showdown complete with fiery explosions. Afterwards, hop on the Ferris wheel at the waterfront OD Pavilion Amusement Park for the best views in town—you can't really appreciate the Atlantic Ocean vista while you're zooming around on the roller coasters. Cap off your day by catching a show at The Alabama Theatre, a local favorite for live entertainment and musical concerts.

Pack your golf bags—the Grand Strand is home to over 100 golf courses, and North Myrtle Beach has a few fine courses that won't burn a hole-in-one in your pocket.
