3-mini-golf-places-to-visit-in-myrtle-beach-2

Mini Golf is a great activity that allows the whole family to have fun. While on your Myrtle Beach vacation, check out one of these awesome Mini Golf destinations.

 

Cancun Lagoon Miniature Golf
This course offers mini golfers the opportunity to choose between 2 courses: 1 outdoor and 1 indoor. The outside course features Mayan themed decor, while the inside course runs within the huge replica Mayan pyramid that the course is known for. Your kids (and yourself) will love it.

Prices:
Adult (1 round, 1 18 hole course) – $9.50
Child (1 round, 1 18 hole course) – $8.00

The course hours vary by season so check out their website for exact times. Printable coupons can also usually be found on their site, so be sure to visit them online before going to the course.

 

Molten Mountain
Like Cancun Lagoon, Molten Mountain also offers both an indoor and outdoor course (probably because both courses were designed by and owned by the same person!). The courses at Molten Mountain follow a more tropical theme with the outside course meandering along the base of a volcano and the indoor course winding its way through the inside of the volcano.

Child (1 round, 1 18 hole course) – $8.00

Captain Hook’s Adventure Golf
This course is great for the whole family, but with a Peter Pan theme, it’s especially great for younger children who are able to identify characters as they make their way through the course.

Top 5 Reasons To Celebrate The Holidays At The Beach

xmas12

 

While it doesn’t seem real, 2014 is almost over. The holiday season is fast approaching and that means getting all the family together.  Calls will be placed; messages will be posted trying to choose which “lucky” family member’s home to invade. A lively debate will ensue and pretty soon someone is calling aunt Lisa’s chicken salad, “dry.” The truth is, nobody particularly enjoys the stresses that come with the holidays.

1. No Snow – Imagine waking up on Christmas morning. A fresh coat snow has fallen overnight. The world is a beautiful white wash. Now remember that you have to drive 20 minutes over to grandma’s house. Who is going to shovel? Are you prepared for yet another year of shoveling just to leave the house? If you’ve ever lived where it snows annually then you know that the beauty of fresh snow lasts for a mere moment while the cold, poor road conditions and not so sunny disposition can last all winter. Did we mention the cold? December is freezing north of Virginia.

Defrost is your best friend

 

Now imagine waking up on Christmas morning.  The sound of crashing waves are echoing off the walls because you chose to leave the door open last night. Oh yeah, and you got the big room.  The best present one can receive is the ability to make everlasting memories  with family. A close second is not having to shovel snow. This holiday season, why not try a new spin on the scenery? A beach house on Christmas morning sure sounds nice.

Bonus: No shovels needed

 

2. Less Crowded – Summertime and the beach go hand in hand. A time to beat the summer heat by scrambling to find parking, jockeying for a spot on the sand and listening to someone else’s blaring radio. Fortunately, this is not true during the rest of the year. With the sun still gleaming and ocean still roaring,  larger crowds and noise pollution are all but eliminated.  You are free to listen to the sea as it was intended to be heard. During the offseason, far more fully intact shells and sand dollars can be found while combing the area beaches.

3. More Affordable – If there was ever a time to  celebrate in an oceanfront home for less, this would be that time. Vacation rentals are designed with families in mind to accommodate larger parties. Beat the peak season prices and still get the entire family experience at the beach this year. Discounts, specials and reduced holiday rates are rampant so don’t be afraid to call and ask about any additional offers.

 

Reduced rates, not views

 

4. Not Your House – Family in your house is great, right? Just until about hour 14 and you realize housework just tripled this week.  A vacation home not only gets your family out of your place but maybe, just maybe, you’ll get to enjoy yourself too. Nevermind dirtying your own house this year. Tell everyone, “See you all at the beach.”

 

Same recipes, different kitchen

 

5. Family Experience – What an amazing time the holidays are. A chance for aunts, grandparents and newborns to all share life moments with one another. How great would it be to watch the little ones run on the sand? These are memories and moments meant to be experienced and shared for a lifetime.  How about a family Christmas photo with everyone and the beach as the backdrop? Now that would make a great Christmas card for next year!

December marks the end of 2014. Another year has passed; another tide has turned. Did you make time for a vacation  Don’t fret. You can still finish the year strong with a walk on the beach.

Benefits of a Beach Vacation

6158

Taking vacations is known to be good for you mental health. We all need to take a break from our everyday lives and jobs once in a while and treat ourselves to a relaxing escape. With the summer season upon us, spending a day soaking up the sun on the beach sounds like a pretty appealing way to spend a vacation. Here are some of our favorite health benefits of a beach vacation:

  1. Improve your mood: Spending time in the sunshine can increase your brain’s production of serotonin, the anti-depressant “feel-good” hormone that your body naturally creates. Also, soaking up some vitamin D can reduce the risk of heart problems.
  2. Get active: Renting a beach house near the ocean provides you with plenty of opportunity to take an invigorating morning run, or a relaxing evening stroll. Running on a sandy surface even tones your legs more than running on pavement! Bring your yoga mat and practice your poses on the patio while the sun rises over the ocean. Allow yourself some freedom to disconnect with your busy life, and reconnect with your body.
  3. Detoxify: The power of the ocean to cleanse and revitalize has been referenced for centuries. It has even been proven that the high levels of iodine, magnesium, and potassium in its salty water can help fight infection, detoxify the body, and replenish skin.

So don’t put it off any longer! There are plenty of reasons to get yourself to the beach, and renting a vacation home allows you to live just as comfortably as you would in your own home. Contact us today to find the perfect getaway home.
