If your plans are to use the Labor Day holiday for a much-needed long weekend escape from your day-to-day life why not spend it in Surfside or Garden City Beach, South Carolina. These sweet beach communities — both located oceanfront — are just south of Myrtle Beach and provide you with everything you could possibly want or expect on a beach vacation.
As part of the Grand Strand there are plenty of end-of-summer activities and events taking place in the area. If saving money is what you love then check out all the Labor Day sales going on in the shopping malls and specialty shops up and down the coastline. It’s not too late to add to that Back to School wardrobe!
