VMB Partners Spotlight: Best Places to Beat the Heat
August is unarguably the hottest month in Myrtle Beach and you are sure to work up a sweat. Sure, you will have plenty of great weather for the beach, but after a few days you are bound to need a break from the sun and sand. When that happens, you can rest assured that there are plenty of other places for you to spend time together while also enjoying a little coveted A/C. Our Vacation Member Benefits Card offers exclusive deals and discounts at many of the local attractions, check out some of the top spots where you can beat the heat and give our wallet a break this summer:
