Myrtle Beach vacation without motorcycle

By: On: August 9th, 20100 Comments »Updated: October 14, 2012

Magnolia Pointe at Myrtlewood golf club in Myrtle Beach South Carolina Myrtle Beach, known for motorcycle rallies and related ordinances, is where my family and I decided to go for vacation this summer.

Instead of a hotel, this time we stayed at a 3 bedroom condo at Myrtlewood golf club, located about one mile from the ocean on the north side of Myrtle Beach.

On the way there, we stopped at our favorite peach stand for lunch, which is also a great place to visit on motorcycles.  There’s always a few bikes there, and I’ll be there again soon on mine too.

The condo had plenty of  space to relax, flat screens in each bedroom and the family room, a full kitchen, and comfortable furniture.

When planning a vacation at Myrtle Beach, figuring out where exactly to stay can be a pain.  You never now what your rental or hotel will really be like until you actually get there, but this one was a very pleasant surprise and was in a really great location.

We found the condo was a relaxing alternative outside of all that overly-commercialized noise that some parts of Myrtle Beach are famous for.  It was still close to everything, including golf, Broadway at the Beach, an excellent mini-golf place right down the road that we all enjoyed.  Free public parking nearby at the beach was a plus, and it was in a safe, well kept area.

For swimming, there was a nice clean pool right at the condo that we were at each day after returning from the ocean and having lunch.  There was also an indoor pool with a lazy river that we went to a few times when we needed a break from all the sun.

Plenty of motorcycles were cruising Myrtle Beach during our stay. We noticed some riders wearing helmets and some were not.   No motorcycles, scooters or trailers were allowed parked at the condo, but at the main entrance next to the office was a shaded parking area where we saw some motorcycles parked all week, some with covers on them.
