Myrtle Beach is a coastal city on the East Coast in South Carolina. Attracting honeymooners, families, and adventurous sun-bathing pets and their owners, this relaxed beach-town is the perfect destination for anyone who’s desperate for a mini-vacation.
Although most people come for the sun and surf, Myrtle Beach also has tons of other fun attractions, like golf courses, live concert venues, and the beautiful pet-friendly Myrtle Beach State Park.
While there are numerous hotels and resorts dotted along the shoreline, we recommend choosing one of these South Carolina Airbnb rentals instead. Not only will you have more space and a kitchen for cooking meals, but you’ll also have private sundecks, outdoor pools, and other great amenities you won’t find in a hotel. And best of all, they all allow pets, so you won’t have to leave your furry best friend at home!
