Of course, the most universally budget-friendly thing to do here is to visit our beautiful beaches! More than 60 miles of pristine coastline make the area ideal for shelling, wading, walking, jogging or stretching out on the sand in the sun. Have a contest to see who can dig the deepest hole, or build the strongest sandcastle to stand against the waves when the tides roll in. Bring along a football, volleyball or beachball to pass around. Challenge the waves with your boggie board or surfboard. Pay a small fee to learn to surf, or for bait to fish from Cherry Grove Pier.

An incredible visit to Myrtle Beach is within your grasp, even on a budget! Enjoy high-end amenities and wallet-friendly overnight rates at Prince Resort at the Cherry Grove Pier by calling (855) 710-4945.
