Once again, Canadians itching for a Myrtle Beach vacation have a reason to rejoice — from January through April 2017, they'll enjoy discounted rates on hotels and attractions in South Carolina's beloved beach town.
The special prices — slashed as much as 25% to 55% — are designed help Canadians offset the difference in the Canadian exchange rate.
"We have seen a growing number of Canadian visitors to the Myrtle Beach area, especially in the past decade," said Keith Pierce, public relations strategist for the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB, in a press release.
Pierce added that taking your Myrtle Beach vacation in the late winter and early spring months means more personal space, milder weather and cheaper accommodations. And those who visit from March 11 - 19, 2017 can attend the 56th Annual Canadian American Days Festival — details on specific events are coming soon.
