How to Vacation at the Beach on a Budget

A vacation at the beach is just what the doctor ordered, and it’s definitely within reach! Did you know Budget Travel just named the Grand Strand  #1 on their 10 Best Budget Vacations For Spring list? Not to brag, but we recently won similar accolades from Coastal LivingUS News & World ReportForbes, and Travel+Leisure, too!

If you’re looking to plan a fun and affordable beach vacation in the upcoming year, look no further than the Grand Strand. With so much to see and do, you’ll make priceless memories without breaking the piggy bank. Here are a few more tips on how to vacation at the beach on a budget.



Rental Property vs. Hotel

You may think making a reservation at a hotel is the best way to go, but think again. Why stay in a cramped hotel room when you can spread out in an entire beach house or condo for a comparable — if not cheaper — price?

Check out the Specials and Deals offered by Vacation Rentals of North Myrtle Beach if you need proof. We consistently offer a variety of Grand Strand discounts in the Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach and Little River areas. Sometimes these include condo specials, resort deals, or added value coupons and discounts, so be sure to contact us so we can tell you more in person!


Cooking and Catered Meals

When you opt for a rental property, you get the added bonus of a fully stocked kitchen. A good rule of thumb for saving money on vacation is to eat out for one meal a day, and otherwise cook your own meals. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can still go to all your favorite restaurants and not feel guilty about the bill. Grab breakfast at a local eatery, pack a lunch for the beach, and grill some burgers at your rental property for dinner. Or whip up some pancakes and scrambled eggs in the kitchen, and save your appetite for a seafood buffet dinner later in the day. The choice is yours!

If you happen to be sharing a vacation rental with friends or extended family members, you could take turns preparing meals, or take advantage of the partnership between Vacation Rentals of North Myrtle Beach and Philomena’s Catering Co. Whether it’s a holiday feast, destination wedding, or reunion at the beach, catering is an easy, delicious, and budget friendly option.
