3 Money Saving Tips For Your Family Vacation
Family vacations take planning everything from picking the place to scheduling the activities to molding the budget. Picking Ocean Creek Resort puts many of those plans in our hands. With the plethora of affordable suites and villas and plenty of free activities, your planning will be as easy as showing up and picking where you want to have fun.
Enjoy Free Local Activities
The Myrtle Beach area offers a plethora of things to do that are totally free of charge! Area parks offer a fun place for kids to play and picnic areas to enjoy a cheap packed meal. Area events, like the annual Beach Boogie & BBQ Festival in August and the Blue Crab Festival in May, are free for guests to attend and offer a fun, family friendly atmosphere. Beginning in June Barefoot Landing will be having a Summerfest which includes live entertainment all summer long. Visitors are also invited to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk for early evening family fun called “Hot Summer Nights”. Throughout the summer, the boardwalk is offering a Kid’s Carnival, various street performers, live open air concerts, and free fireworks shows. If you want to catch a free flick, head over to The Market Common. Every Wednesday evening, June – September at 9pm, Market Common is hosting “Movie Under The Stars”, with a free family-friendly movie in Valor Park.
Pack a lunch
Most of the Ocean Creek accommodations offer a generous kitchen space stocked with all of the essentials for preparing a meal fit for your family. If you are planning on a beach day, fill up a cooler with snacks and sandwiches. If the family prefers being poolside, The Beach Club Bar & Grill is the perfect place for a cool drink, a light snack or a filling and delicious, sandwich with fries.
Spend Time at The Resort
Ocean Creek offers a wide variety of on-site amenities that are included in your stay. Beachfront access makes it easy to put your toes in the sand and enjoy a day at the beach. If you want to get wet but stay away from the sand, enjoy one of our indoor or outdoor pool facilities. Golf lovers will appreciate the on-site putting green and athletes will enjoy the tennis center (for a fee) and beach front volleyball court. If you are looking to take a break, enjoy a scenic walk or bike ride throughout our 57 acre facility. Kids are also included in our activities and are invited to participate in our Ocean Creek Kids Club, a seasonal club that offers special events and activities just for kids. *Small fees may apply for children’s activities.
