Before You Leave:
On the Road – Myrtle Beach or Bust!
Plot out your route from home to Myrtle Beach, and see what fun things are along the way! How much time will each add to your trip, and are they worth the side trip? Some destination ideas to look up:
• National Parks (get a park passport from the giftshop to track your parks!)
• State Parks and Recreation Areas
• Factory Outlet Centers (for the shopaholics in your group!)
• South of the Border – if you approach Myrtle Beach from the north, you’ll see the signs…
