A vacation to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, usually means one of two things. You are either going to work on lowering your handicap on one of the area’s many impeccably manicured golf courses, or you are going to shake the night away on the dancefloor doing the Carolina Shag. Then again, there is nothing keeping you from doing both! And when you use Travelocity to book a pet-friendly hotel in Myrtle Beach, Sherlock Bones can make the trip with you and your golf/dance partner.
Even if you don’t plan on hitting the links or letting loose to some Carolina beach music, there are plenty of other activities to keep you and your furry friends active during your entire stay. If you’re not going to work on your short game on the golf course, you can work on your tan on miles of open, soft sand beaches. If you can’t find your groove to the music, find some bargains at the local boutiques, instead. No matter what your day holds, you’ll find more than enough coastal cooking bistros, Carolina barbecue joints, and craft breweries to fuel your adventures.
What are the closest airports to Myrtle Beach?
The closest airport to the “Golf Capitol of the World” is Myrtle Beach International Airport, located on the southern edge of town, about 3 miles from the heart of Myrtle Beach. Once you get your clubs from the baggage claim carousel, you are only a short cab ride from any of the pet-friendly rentals in Myrtle Beach—like City Studios on the very aptly named Hospitality Lane.
Other than the local airfield, Florence Regional Airport (65 miles from Myrtle Beach) and Charleston International Airport (103 miles away) both serve the coastal area. Wilmington International Airport in North Carolina is relatively close by (77 miles), as well. No matter where you fly into, you’ll be at your accommodation in plenty of time to relax for a spell before venturing out for a night of dinner and dancing.
How far is it from Myrtle Beach to Charleston?
It is just about 100 miles from the Second Avenue pier in Myrtle Beach to downtown Charleston. Depending on traffic, you can make the scenic, ocean view drive from your dog-friendly hotels in Myrtle Beach, like the Holiday Inn Express - Little River, in about two hours. You might want to plan for more time, though; there are quite a number of golf courses, secluded beaches, seafood restaurants, and roadside attractions along the way that might lure you in. Before you head south for the day, it might be a good idea to take your shaggy companion for a stroll along the Myrtle Beach boardwalk and promenade. You’ll be able to stretch your legs before hopping behind the wheel and your four-legged friend will be able to frolic in the grass before taking his rightful spot as your co-pilot.
